Re: Ok mama's in Europe let's check in!!

Hi! I'd be glad to meet up with some DS mamas! I'm in Lyon, France but I get around with the Archaeology thing I'm all over Western Europe!
I have 2 LOs and We're throwing around the idea for another addition to our family

I have an cloth diaper exchange club here in the city with a bunch of French mamas (about once a month) But I end up selling alot of my diapers on Ebay.

I started making organic bamboo velour or cotton embellished Prefolds (with snaps!) for my son and I LOVE them.

My favorite diaper is Clovers with a pair of wool longies but I'll admit that we got alot of FB, GAD and Blueberry Minky around the house too

I'm ready to talk diapers when ever you like I'm addicted!!

Hi derexie,
I get everything except thread online as all the fabric stores in Italy and France that I have seen are not so great. I get a few things from the states from very baby, diapercuts, and a cut above fabrics, but i also just got some fold over elastic from the sewing chest site in the UK. Shipping does get expensive, so I recommend bringing a big stash with you when you come. or have friends/family bring your orders when they visit. You can also try the ebay site for your country or a nearby country like the UK.

To everyone else:
Hello!!
I just wanted to introduce myself to this thread.
I'm also in Lyon, France. My french husband and I just moved here after almost 2 years in Italy. We're expecting our first anyday now and I am sewing and building up a cloth stash. I'm addicted already!

Hi! I do make and sell cloth diapers right from Europe. I buy 75% of my fabric offline from the US bc its cheaper. When its shipped from the US, I get it shipped priority. Most places can ship 8-12 yds of cotton in a INT.FRE for $12.95. You can get 25+yds of any material (except terry and fleece) in a FRB for about $40. I buy all of my terry material here,its the only one that works out that even. You will find with the US pricing, plus shipping is cheaper than paying for the fabric in euros in europe. As least it is in Finland, things in Scandanavia tend to be super expensive though.

Any mamas looking for cloth diapers at low prices, I have some(starting at $7.50)! My website offers free shipping worldwide, so that helps european mamas. bouncybottomsinc.goods.officelive.com
