A Very Special Project
A month ago or so I began a very special project. It's deeply personal, sometimes painful but full of the "good" that comes along with painful circumstances. Our family is walking the very sad road of infertility with one of our children. So, since fertility is an expensive medical condition I have had the privilege of opening an Etsy store dedicated helping in that process. It is called RobynsBaby and on it I have a small offering, quite literally as I can get things made, of classically constructed children's clothing. Here is a sneak peek of things that either are or have been listed in my shop. Also, please take a moment to read my bio to learn more about our family's journey~
I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother. My journey into the enchanting world of classic children's clothing began when my first child, a son, was born in 1982. We welcomed a daughter and another son in the following 6 years. They were my inspiration learn English Smocking and to utilize the embroidery my grandmother had taught me when I was 6 years old. Through the years I have taught countless women Embroidery and English Smocking techniques. In addition I design and create custom garments which I sell to individual clients and in my Etsy shop. I am deeply inspired by old world techniques and materials. My main source of inspiration is the children who wear my designs.
