We had a blast at the recently concluded #nse event which took place at the Octagon center in Sheffield. Our appreciation goes to the organizers for putting together such a fabulous event. Our appreciation also goes to our ever supportive ambassadors and Joy and Joe friends, who rallied round to ensure that visitors to our stand were well looked after.
Our appreciation also goes to everyone who bought something from our stall. We also love that lots of you got to try on some of our new 2017 wrap releases. The amazing response to our stretchy wrap release was heart-warming. Thanks to every sling librarian who popped around to purchase one of our improved stretchy wrap.
Last but certainly not the least; we appreciate the northern sling exhibition volunteers. From Friday, we sensed that this event was going to be epic. There was always someone on hand to assist us in offloading our wares and also to load our car. Sam was the person who assisted ourselves and other exhibitors in ensuring that the car parking went well. We also had a lovely welcome from one of the NSE volunteers who told us that a Joy and Joe sling was her very first when she started babywearing. We felt really welcomed to Sheffield. Lest we forget, we had a surplus supply of water to ensure that we stayed hydrated!!! Thank you Dr Rosie and the NSE organizing team.
We also had an opportunity to meet and network with some other fabulous UK based sling manufacturers, many of whom are hardworking women we admire. This was a well organised event and the venue was very spacious, a massive upgrade from last year! Bring on #nse2018! ohhhh, I just remembered that my legs are still aching me badly from prolonged standing, one of the side effects of the #nse2017 excitement!!! Well, the exciting NSE vibe was all we needed as we embark on setting up our very first brick and mortar Joy and Joe sling gallery (shop) this week!! Our NSE photos and videos are below for your viewing pleasure.
PS: Did you discover Joy and Joe baby slings for the very first time yesterday at the #nse2017 event? We would love the opportunity to get to know you better. Plus, we are a really joyful bunch to roll with, please join our closed Facebook group. See you there <3
