Meet the Crafters
We thought since we now carry several crafted items that we would introduce you to their makers. So periodically we will highlight one of the crafters. See if you can spot the nepotism in our choice of first crafter. ;-)
Tommy's sister, Sonja Koch, began making quilts while she was working towards a degree in accounting at the University of Arkansas. After graduating in 1993, she suddenly found that she didn't quite enjoy doing taxes and audits everyday. Wanting to start a family, she was eager to find a way to work from home. So she bought a long arm quilting machine and turned her quilting hobby into a career.
The rest, as they say, is history. Sonja, aka So, still lives in Fayetteville, AR, with her husband, their three kids(ages 14, 12, and 3) and a rotating stock of foster kittens. All three kids have grown up helping Mom in the quilting room. Recently, So decided to focus her efforts on making T-shirt (or Memory) Quilts. However she still finds time to make organic baby quilts for us at Little Padded Seats.

New Zipper One Size Diaper
In our search for unique cloth diapers we have found Lil' Punk A** Cloth Diapers (name edited so as not to offend).
These diapers use zippers (instead of snaps or hook & loop) to secure the wings around the waist and also to adjust the rise. This gives them a unique look which the manufacturer has capitalized upon and gone all out to make them look 'punk', complete with (decorative) safety pins.
We have decided to start small and bring in only a couple of their 'hard core' line, including:
- Black Denim
- Blue Denim
- Black Leather
- Brown Leather
- Red Leather
- "The Finger" print
- "I'm NORML" print
We look forward to hearing from you about these unique diapers!
