Come Visit the Showroom

This Week's Hours:

I know it is important to see and feel diapering products and baby carriers. If you are in Illinois, plan to visit the showroom soon to see all the modern diapering products and baby carriers for yourself. We are an in-stock shop and we love to share cloth diapering and baby wearing with others in our community. When you shop with me, you're supporting a mom and the opportunity for me to stay at home with my two children. With that in mind, I understand that my hours don't always match up with yours so please, email me at and I'd be more than happy to accommodate!

Attending a Cloth Diapering Class
If you are just looking into cloth diapering and are unsure of a) if you really want to choose cloth or b) not sure how to use or choose cloth diapers, then attending an Introduction to Cloth Diapering class is ideal. Before baby comes; before you buy your first cute diaper; before your register; we suggest you start with a class. We want you to have success cloth diapering and a class is your first step to success.

Modern diaper choices can be overwhelming you may have difficulty deciding what will work best for you and your baby. Come let us help you evaluate your needs and help you determine what type of diapering system will work best with your family. Ask us the questions, and let us guide you to the best choice for you and baby.

Learn more about the class and register here.

One-on-One Baby Carrier Consultations
Do you own a carrier and not sure how to use it properly? Does it feel uncomfortable? Maybe you're curious about the benefits of babywearing and want to purchase a carrier but not sure what kind would work best for you and your lifestyle. Baby carriers are not a one-size fit all. Based on your lifestyle, your size and the size of your baby, different carriers may suit you better. Email me to schedule a private consultation. Private consultations run just under 90 minutes and are $25. Customers who purchase a carrier from Pinstripes and Polkadots will receive a credit towards the purchase of that carrier.

Browsing the Showroom
Come see for yourself the wonderful world of cloth diapering. See and feel the products. Experience the softness. Delight in the prints. Be amazed at the innovations that have made cloth diapering easy, convenient, and fun. No need to let us know you're coming--just pop by during open hours!

To manage our time wisely at PinStripes and PolkaDots, we have implemented specific showroom hours for browsing the shop (listed at the top of this webpage).

We also will try to have evening hours at least twice throughout a month. If the listed times really will not work with your schedule email me at and request a time of day. If it is possible, I will open the shop for hours to accommodate.

Ordering Online: a lot like drive thru
If you know what you want, you may not want to wait until scheduled showroom hours to purchase your diapering items. Our local customers are always welcome to place their orders online and choose "local pick-up" to save on shipping costs. This service allows you to order any time of day or night and have a quick pick up at the door. Not quite as good as a drive through...but it will work so that you don't have to get all the kiddos in and out of the car just to pick up your items.

Most online orders are available for pick-up the very next day and you do not need to wait for showroom hours. Just send us a quick email after placing your order (or add it to the notes section of your order) to let us know when you hope to stop by and pick up your new fluff.

Now a bit about me...

Pinstripes and Polkadots has been around for a long time. Founded by Sarah Gesiakowski in 2005, Pinstripes and Polkadots was one of the first online cloth diapering shops on the web. Now in its 10th year, I carry on Pinstripes and Polkadots tradition of offering beautiful cloth diapering products and accessories to meet every caregiver's needs to successfully cloth diaper a child. I also offer baby carriers, natural skincare products for your family, genuine baltic amber necklaces and breastfeeding support products. At the capstone of my store is my commitment to educating every caregiver here in Central Illinois and beyond to make babywearing and cloth diapering a wonderful, loving experience. I hope that love exudes in every package that I ship, class that I teach and product that I offer.
