Babywearing Made Beautiful: Marissa's Story, Part II

May 19, 2016

We bare children at many different life stages, but the bond of motherhood connects us all. This series, Babywearing Made Beautiful, seeks to address some of the issues, commonalities of the motherhood (and/or fatherhood) journey, as well as to help shed some light on the many beautiful aspects of babywearing, mothering, (note: Poe knows father's babywear too, though we might change the moniker to "handsome" for dad's!), and how the two have mingled. We will be interviewing women, (if you're a babywearing dad interested in this project, we would love to interview you, please email us!), of various ages from all over the world. Today's story comes to us from Marissa, a lovely mom who is returning for a second...

Dress A Girl Around The World

April 29, 2016

It's not often that a community service project comes along that checks all the boxes for an American textile based small business.

Home Stretch

April 29, 2016

Some of the fabric in our upcoming ring sling release was woven last July. For a myriad of reasons, it has been a long time coming, but we are finally on the home stretch and getting ready to release our ring slings. Though the process has been long and arduous, I have learned some valuable lessons and had some pretty amazing help along the way. Too many people to name, (but I'll try: Josilyn over at Burlington Vermont Moms Blog, all my Brand Ambassadors over in Poe Precinct, my assistant Trish, CSR Kiersten, textile designer Andrea, I could go on!). But I'd like to take THIS opportunity to highlight my family. My husband, children, parents, in-laws and church family have been instrumental in...

Out From Behind the Desk

March 15, 2016

I have been happily married for 12 years this past May to the love of my life Bob, (who sometimes get's persuaded to model for me, see below). He is a fifth generation dairy farmer and we live right on the family farm in picturesque, Addison County, Vermont.    Before my life on the farm began I spent four years active duty serving in the United States Marine Corps. My Military Occupational Specialty, or job, was 3531 or "Motor T", for you military buffs! Upon my honorable discharge I returned to my beloved (yet cold), home state and completed my Business Degree at the University of Vermont. We now have five beautiful children; four daughters and two* sons: Brittany is 16.5, Abigail...
