We are finally in a semi-decent mode where I can get some sewing done in between all the running of kids everywhere they need to go.
I am still only taking orders from outside of the US, but would be willing to do applique work for any of my customers. My turn around is SLOW, as it is just me working on this and it is in between family life responsibilities. If you have a project you think I might find interesting, feel free to email me.
I thought you all might like this picture of what it is like when I am trying to make a carrier.
This is baby boy desperately clinging to my leg, screaming and crying at the top of his lungs because I am not holding him. He did this the entire time I was trying to put snaps on this carrier. "Why not just wear him?" you ask. Well, because he hates back carriers (only seems to like hip and front carries) and even then you have to be standing and constantly moving for him to be semi-appeased. So a back carry while I try to sew? No Way Jose. Unless I want previously mentioned screeching right in my ear. Good think he is cute. ;)

I will hope to be going for the next year making babycarriers until other regulations become mandatory. I am working on new labels as well.
I am going to try to move into only doing wrap conversions, so if you are wanting a Mei Tai with canvas straps, start buying up what comes up in the next few months, b/c that will be the last of it.
I will be doing smaller waitlists as well. In preparation for Wrapstar to be closing its doors to US customers, I have taken on an extra job. That means, I wont have as much time to sew. SO, my new waitlist will be done in groups of 3. I will take three spots at a time. I hate that my current waitlist has taken SO long to finish because of a lot of unexpected personal conflicts (moving, holidays and a TON of snow days!).
With only taking 3 at a time, the hope is that those clients will not have to wait as long for their carriers.
I will also be doing waitlist JUST for legacy wrap quilts. So keep your eyes open for those. I will be taking those in groups of 3 as well.
To my loyal customers outside of the US, a lot of these new regulations will not affect you. And I hope to be making carriers for my foreign supporters for many years to come.

We love our new house, and we are getting settled in. But my time getting sewing done took a nose dive. I was so busy with packing, then moving, then unpacking.....I feel like I am finally getting back into the swing of things.
I know how frustrating this must have been for those of you on my custom list, having to wait longer. I am so apologetic about that, and appreciate your understanding.
I am finally rocking and rolling again, so I should be finishing up the custom list within in the next 2-3 wks.
Thank you again, to all my wonderful fans............
