Our next Christmas Feature comes from Invermere, BC, MountainTots Sewing and Co. A children’s clothing company making items from newborn to 12 years. Kyla Lam is a wife to a supportive husband and a mother to a 2.5 year old little boy. Kyla’s family loves spending time outside doing anything from skiing and snow shoeing to fishing and hunting. Kyla also works part-time while finding time to run this small business.
Kyla started her business after her son was born was putting her years of sewing to work again creating fun, and functional clothing for their little bambino. It started out with a Facebook page and just grow with me pants, but has since grown to include, shirts, rompers and hats. They supply products to Live Love North, with handmade items to print their designs on and can be found in 2 Brick and Motor locations. Kyla has also added another mom to her team and will be adding another mom soon.
Kyla’s business started by only doing customer orders but has since created a ready to ship stock line. Custom orders are now done on a opportunity basis. Kyla has watched her business grow a lot, I asked her advice to other businesses “Be realistic, it’s not easy money but it is rewarding.” Like so many others Kyla finds the biggest challenge to be Time balance, setting work hours and sticking to them, but also not losing her vision of the brand. Kyla works as an accountant during the day so creating this business allowed her to have an outlet for her creative side.
Kyla’s favorite Christmas Tradition is going for a walk on Christmas afternoon and enjoying her family and the outdoors which they love.
