Pepperell, MA, May 21, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- NannyGram (www.nannygram.com), an online shop that distributes handmade baby gifts, aims to keep New England’s independent knitters knitting. The female-owned and operated small business has launched its online shop just in time for the spring baby shower season.
Founded by two sisters and based out of an antique home in rural central Massachusetts, NannyGram specializes in delivering handmade baby clothes – sweaters, hats, and booties – created in classic styles, using luxury fibers such as merino wool and cashmere blends.
“Don’t we all wish we had a grandmother to knit an heirloom gift to welcome a new baby to the family or celebrate a christening or other special event?” asked co-founder Mary Flaherty, whose own mother, known as Nanny, is the inspiration behind the company.
When their mother couldn’t keep up with demand from friends and relatives for her hand knits, Mary and her sister created a network of knitters based in New England to start NannyGram, an online shop that delivers quality, handmade baby gifts. Working with traditional knitting needles, crochet hooks, and hand looms, the knitters use luxury fibers, that are soft on baby’s skin yet washable, to create the delightful hand knit clothing.
Because NannyGram uses a virtual network of knitters and distributes a focused product line specifically suitable for baby gift-giving, orders are shipped in days, not weeks. And, to make it easy on the customer, gifts are shipped already packaged for giving with a personal note from the gift-giver and tied up with a bow.
