International Babywearing Week is an annual outreach event sponsored by Babywearing International. It is a week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing . We will be joined by non-profit babywearing groups around the world to participate in IBW as an Official Celebrating Organization. Each organization will be hosting their own online and in-person events throughout the week. Babywearing International will promote #BestseatIBW2016 through its website, twitter, and Facebook accounts with contests, awards, giveaways, and other interactive events.
In addition to our in-person events below, we will also have some ongoing online events involving our lending library! There will be a puzzle a day reveal of a new RS, and the person who figures out the puzzle gets that RS as an extra check out at the October meeting. We are also super excited to announce that Tiny House Textiles will be doing a custom dye project for our Risaroo Wovens Pemberley Pearl. We will be asking for inspiration photos for 3 days and then we will have 3 days of elimination voting. Start digging for those old babywearing pictures, because we will be having a #tbt thread as well!
We hope that you are as excited as we are to celebrate a passion that unites so many cultures around the world. Be sure to snag a color or greyscale tee before it’s too late, and we look forward to sharing the week’s excitement with you via our chatter page!
