August 25, 2012, Saturday Meeting

Hi Friends! We had a great meeting on Saturday with a wonderful turnout. Folks came bearing questions about ring slings, wraps, mei ties and double wearing. 

There was a slight bit of confusion recently on our Facebook page that I would like to clarify. You do not need to be a member of Babywearing International (BWI) to attend our meetings! We welcome any and all that would like to try on carriers, learn more about the carrier you have from any of our expert Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBE's), or share and chat with like minded mamas! Non members are welcome to come try on anything, however to borrow from our lending library, you do need to be a member of BWI. To join, please complete this BWI membership application and pay your annual fee of $30. Half of that fee stays with us in our local organization to help us continue to grow our carrier and book lending library, the other half goes to BWI. At this meeting, we gained two new BWI members and have made many new additions to our lending library recently. If you have any suggestions of additional member benefits, please let us know!

October 13th at 9:30 am, we will be having a yard sale!


  1. Hello. I found your site through BWI. A gentle suggestion: there seems to be a lack of basic information about your group in an obvious place. For example, WHERE in Virginia you are located. It would be very helpful to people coming across this site for the first time if there were a tab at the top of the page that gave your location, your meeting times and locations, and how to contact a group leader. A further improvement might be another tab with helpful links. Take care, and happy babywearing!

  2. Any better? We operate mostly on Facebook, so sometimes this blog is a bit neglected, but know that not everyone uses Facebook and are working on it. Also anytime a comment is made here, an email is sent to the group leaders.

    Thank you!
