Snap press service in whangarei?

Post by LizStar » Mon Oct 01, 2007 7:46 pm

Hi I was given a whole pile of fabric to make some pocket nappies (WOOWHOOO!) :shock: :D but I dont have acess to a snap press machine, does anyone have one - or know of someone who is willing to offer this service to me, or even perhaps hire theirs out for an hour or 2?
I'm in whangarei.....and as I'm new to all this..... if there is nobody in these thar parts who can help - what are some other options to get this task done??
thanks guys...I apreciate any feedback. :)

want for its use? I have NO clue I am a beginner at that too:)

(if you get some funky colours I wont say no to a few of them though.)

I dont really have spare snaps (got some but not many)- so I suggest you grab some from either here or greenbeans then I can let you have the snap machine or even help you snap them - I dont mind :)

maybe someone can let us know what the *norm* is?


the pics I made with animation shop - need to update it again I try and keep it pretty current. then I host it on my website I do not know if photobucket allows gifs.

You should definantly come to the nappachino. I think just about all of us Northlanders have a snap press so you would get lots of advice if you came :lol:

Hi!

If you need someone to come over and help you make your first nappy I don't mind.....though not this week. What faabrics have you been given? I'm a visual person and had to go down to Auckland to 'see' how it was done :)

I hope you can make it to the nappichino :)

Another homeschooler here :) Are you a member of the Whangarei Home Educators Group?

I was in Spotlight today.....they aren't good with nappy type fabrics. You would be better buying nappy related fabrics from GreenBeans, co ops or the trading posts on TNN.

cheers

We are pretty irregular at meeting. We really do need to make a more regular time of the month or somthing. We are going to start homeschooling to beginning of next year when my eldest turns 5.

I have lots :-)

My little ones are 6 1/2, nearly 5. 3 next week and 9 mths.

We haven't been to many of the activities the last two terms.....mostly swimming and Youth Music (recorder).

Do you swim at the Aquatic centre or Tikipunga?
