I recently discovered the blog of one of my readers and was excited to see that she is an EXTREMELY talented cloth diaper maker!
Because I am not a seamstress I asked her permission to reprint a recent post she wrote on where to buy cloth diaper making supplies.
Thank you ladies for all the nice comments.
We have been sewing diapers for a good few years now!Along with the diapers we also sew dresses,under things, pants for the boys and birthing mats and blankets etc.. with having 8 children now I have just enough time to get out the sewed things we needfor our family~My two older daughters have been doing more in the sewing area and are helping me out but It is still aload to get done.It feels like there is sewing to be done daily!!Another question that you asked was were do I get my supplies for diaper making..FOr snaps there are a few places you can go I own a snap press.With having that I can order what is called KAM snaps.I also have a snap press from the Very baby that takes a completly diffferent snap but they do look the same.I like the KAM snap press best.The snaps are better made and more durable.So where to get them…My #1 place to send you is to a lady named Serena.She has a yahoo group here:http://groups.yahoo.com/group/notionsupply/
and here is her Pictures of things she sells.She is selling a new thing for the snaps called snap pliers..I can not tell you how they work/I have not bought that yet..LOL
Now you also can get a KAM snap press and snaps from Wendy at the snap store.She does have more snap choices in her store:
For the Very baby store snaps and press I bought it here:http://verybaby.com/notions/professional-snap-press-and-dies
and the snaps:
Now there all MANY co-ops on Yahoo that we can enjoy LOTS of savings on sewing supplies.I belong to a LONG list of them and keep them on hand for when I am in Need of something I go through the co-ops first and seeif anyone is doing a good deal.go to Yahoo groups and in the search box type in sewing notions ~diaper notions~Diaper making supplies~ Snaps ~ etc..It should bring up LOTS of co-ops for you to thump through.Ones I use often are :
I have many more but this should get you started!Now I do get slot of my fabrics through co-ops especially bamboo and organic fabrics but sometimes I will buy knits and special fabrics from these places:
I really like going here to get our fabric for our dresses the tropical breeze and windser fabrics are WONDERFUL!No irioning ladies!!!http://www.gehmanscountryfabrics.com/store/index.php
