Detailed group custom information (information only - not a new slot quite yet ;)

Before I offer the next group custom slot, I want to make sure everyone completely understands the process so that you can be organized and ready to submit your group! :)  Please note that this blog post is strictly informative and I am not offering a group custom at this time (although I plan to in the next week or so! :)

This is how group customs work:

When I'm ready to offer a group custom slot, I will post it here on my blog and then I will post on my FB page.  After I post the group custom slot, I will accept the first email I receive at twinkietush@gmail.com that meets the following criteria:

*Anyone from the group can email me, as long as they are willing and able to serve as group rep (the person who collects payments from other group members and communicates with me about velour preferences, etc.)  The group rep is also responsible for forwarding information from me to the group as needed and assuring that the group is aware of payment deadlines, etc.  Please do not email on behalf of your group unless you are willing to take on the group rep responsibility.

*All members of the group must be copied on the initial email so that I can reach individual members if needed.

* A google spreadsheet or attached Excel spreadsheet or similar (please do not C&P in the body of the email) must be included in your initial email, containing the following information for each group member:

name, email, serged or T&T

If any of these elements are missing from your email I will have to move on to the next group email, so please make sure to read over that information carefully! :)
After confirming with the first group to respond, I will create a private custom listing on hyena cart which will need to be purchased by the group rep within 24 hours, after which it will expire and I will offer the spot to the next group in line.  If during this 24 hour period you need to swap out participants for any reason, that is fine as long as you keep me in the loop and as long as the private listing is purchased in full within the allotted time.  Once the spot is purchased it is reserved and you can send your fabric to me as quickly or slowly as you like!  The listing will include the cost of the diapers but not the cost of shipping to each individual group member.

After the group rep pays for the group listing, each individual group member will need to pay individually for their shipping cost.  This is not something that needs to be done to reserve your spot but it will need to be done in order for me to ship you your diapers ;)  This system is just to facilitate an easier and smoother shipping process on my end which means you getting your diapers more quickly :)  If I have not received shipping payments by the time the group order is ready to ship, I will send out a single reminder email to the group or to the group rep, who will forward to all group members.

After purchasing the slot, the group will send me (at the group's cost) 3-5 yards (depending on the group size) of the chosen print fabric and all diapers will be cut from that yardage. All other materials will of course be provided by me :) All velour and snaps will be uniform.  I will work with the group on velour choice (contingent on availability) and snap colors will be chosen by me.  Extra print fabric will be shipped back to a group member or members or donated for use by twinkie tush as decided by the group.  Please note that the cost of mailing extra fabric will be added to shipping cost(s).

Group size can range from 5-10 people.  I am not able to take on more than 10 at this time.  Each group member can choose between a serged or turned and topstitched diaper.  I do not recommend serging with woven fabrics.  The price for this SYOF order will be $28 + shipping per each serged diaper and $30 + shipping per each T&T diaper.

All diapers will ship out to the group members 4-6 weeks after I receive the fabric (pending shipping payments of course).

Please make sure to let me know here or via email (twinkietush@gmail.com) or FB if you have any questions about this, and stay tuned!  I am doing my best to offer a group custom every month and it's almost time for another one! :)

Thanks so much!! :)
