For anyone who has wondered why GM's cost

$33/piece...here is a tidbit from her website. She employs only fairly paid American's to sew the dipes...another reason that I Suzanne. FWIW...even is she sewed them herself they are so dang squishy that they would be worth every penny! I purchased two at the last stocking in the hopes that the new baby can wear them!

I didn't know that she didn't sew them herself, I wondered how she produced all those diapes plus wishboxes

I would imagine she does some of the sewing herself but the bulk of the work is contracted out it appears.

Why does that suck?? If anything, it's awesome that a WAHM has so much business that she has to hire help to complete orders and be able to stock her store!

Kudos to her and I hope when I start having other ppl sew 'with' me (or for me...lol), my customers won't think it sucks... sure, a lot of them wouldn't be sewn by myself anymore, but they'd still be 'my babies', make sense?
