This one-day event in Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday 1st October, held at the Hyndman Centre, is full of slings, workshops and educational speakers, is a wonderful opportunity to meet the faces behind local and national brands, plus Suffolk’s sling libraries, try out new products, learn new skills and broaden your babywearing knowledge.
