PS. I’m collaborating with Madesmith Academy on their Sustainable Fashion Business Incubator online course this summer. The course is tailor-made for designers creating clothing, home textiles, shoes, bags and accessories. Over the course of eight weeks, designers will learn how to launch an ethical online business, grow an audience and clientele, tell their story, and develop effective marketing and PR strategies. And that’s just for starters. If you know of anyone who might be interested, pass along this link. (Act fast: Registration closes June 28, 2015 and a special early bird discount ends June 7!) Lot’s more info HERE.

    Thank you for the gift for new moms link! My boyfriends sister-in-law gave birth two days ago, so we'll be celebrating her & I needed some good ideas! Also, Faye in the crate – so precious!

    Your collaboration sounds wonderful! How exciting. I would love to hear more about how you approach buying sustainable/ethically sourced clothing for your daughter. I have found I can slowly, and purposefully buy well-sourced clothing for myself, but my (3) kids require a lot more clothing because they are growing and they go through them faster. I can't figure out how to buy sweatshop-free stuff for them without breaking the bank.
