Fabric restrictions

I know I have written about this before, but the fabric used for Heartfelt Couture HAS to be CPSIA certified fabrics, and it has to have labels sewn into the gowns. The CPCS has very strict guidelines for businesses/non-profits regarding anything made for children under 12. If you are interested in doing a cutting night or what fabrics you can purchase feel free to email me keri@heartfeltcouture.cm

How Heartfelt Couture Started

Heartfelt Couture all started because a little 4 year old Sarah Swan didn't like her "normal" hospital gown. Her mother Sharon Swan contacted Keri Abshier to make her some gowns for her upcoming Heart cath and Heart surgery. Sarah has congenital heart disease and her amazing mom knew that Sarah would be needing plenty of FABULOUS hospital gowns.

With a lot of prayer, Heartfelt Couture was launched October 2008. To read more about what we have done from October 2008 to present go to the post from October 2009 called Did you know?

If you are wanting a hospital gown and name pillow for your child or any other child you know. Just contact Keri at keri@heartfeltcouture.com and she will get one out to you!!!

Heartfelt Couture is really in need of a website that is easier to navigate. If you know of anyone or you yourself can help me out that would be great! I don't have time between making the gowns, name pillows, IRS stuff, financial stuff, gown deliveries, and other things that I don't have time to teach myself how to do a website.
