Throughout November and December have a chance to meet some of the local Baby Time “Makers”!
December 8th – Diane Thomsen with Rockin’ Rags
“Rockin’ Rags was born out of me becoming a grandmother. 11 years ago my daughter was expecting our first grandchild. She wanted to use only cloth diapers for her baby so she asked me to make AIO’s for him. That was the beginning! Since then I have been making diapers, blankets, burp cloths, tag blankets, baby crinkles, suck pads, car seat ponchos, carrier covers and many, many other items. I also get requests for special needs. I have made weighted blankets, medical id bracelets, feeding tube pads, etc. I am willing to try to adapt regular items to work for your child….I am not always successful, but I like the challenge.
Since that first AIO 11 years ago, I now have 7 grandbabies, the youngest just turned 1. They all have benefited from having a grandma who can sew. A little bit of grandmotherly love goes in to every item I make. To see some of my products check out my Rockin’ Rags Facebook page.”
