You drop in for the sessions that interest you most!

READY OR NOT, HERE THEY COME!

VENDOR POP UP!!

Petits Vilains is a line of clothing for children ranging from 1 to 7 years of age. The collection is a modern take on timeless silhouettes; each piece is special but can be worn every day. The fit is relaxed with room to grow – many of the pieces will last two years on the same child. Fabrics are always natural and organic whenever possible. Designed, cut, and sewn in Vancouver, Canada, we pride ourselves on the quality and construction of our clothing and are fully committed to sustainable and ethical production.

Friends since kindergarten, Rachel and Jennifer have now found themselves on this collaborative venture making beautiful, soft and sustainable clothing for children.  They will join us and talk a little about their journey self starting in the fashion business and why their passion to produce locally made clothing is really important. Come listen and SHOP!

What is the main ingredient for an infant massage practice? … you, your baby and a caring connection. What should we add to this? …Taking the time !

Are you curious about infant massage? In this Meet-Up we will explore the who-what-how and why of infant massage. We will awake our sense of touch, talk about how to introduce infant massage in our busy lives as parents/caregivers of new babies and learn some « baby yoga », also called « gentle movement ».

Marie Arcand will guide this Meet-Up. Marie brings her knowledge, her teaching experience and enthusiasm for infant massage to as many parents as she can reach! She is grateful to have learned it and shared it with her family many years ago.

She has trained as an infant massage teacher during her massage therapy schooling, her subsequent professional continuing education seminars, the International Association of Infant Massage course and the LiddleKidz Foundation training.

Bring your baby or your young child and join us for a unique experience at our Infant Massage Meet-Up!
