Name is Ann Caldwell and I live in the village of New Hamburg, Ontario. I have been making Ann’s Soft Sided Bins since 1997 after looking for something safer than a solid wood or plastic containers to keep grand kid’s toys in.
After deciding what I wanted to make them out of I began an extensive search looking for the right or the product that were both child and environmentally friendly as well as allowing the product to be washed if necessary. After about a year of research and prototypes which my grand kid’s were quite happy to test out for me, “Ann’s Soft Sided Toy Bag’s were on the market at craft shows.
Over the years many people have come up with their own ideas of what they can be used for eg. Toys, Laundry, Baby Shower Gifts, Dress up Clothes, Yarn, Fabric, Taking essentials to the Beach and/or Cottage ……………..so that I now call them simply “Ann’s Soft Sided Bins.”
