The official twinkie tush mini group post!

What is a twinkie tush mini group? :)

At our stockings and occasionally via drawing, we offer 3 person mini group send your own fabric (SYOF) slots.  

Pricing:
The cost for a one size or little tush diaper within a mini group is $36 if the group has elected standard or non-specific centered bum cutting.  If a member chooses a teenie tush diaper their cost is $28.

The cost for a *SPECIFIC BUM CUT* or "FUSSY" mini group is $41 per OS or little tush and $33 for teenie tush.  Members must all agree that a group is either standard, non-specific centered, or specific/fussy.  If a mini group is a specific/fussy group the group name MUST contain one of those words, and in that same vein please keep those words far away from your group if you are a standard or non-specific centered bum group.  If you request even one specific cut you will be invoiced at the higher rate.

Please note the different fabric requirements for different types of cutting within a mini group, in "process" below.  Thank you!

The mini group deposit is purchased by one member.  The deposit is $36 plus shipping (the cost of one individual diaper.)  In the event that the member who purchases the slot elects to order a teenie tush diaper they will be refunded the $8 price adjustment.

Policies:

All diapers will be made with the (single) KNIT outer print sent in by the group.  The 3 completed diapers will ship 4-6 weeks after receipt of fabric.  There is no limitation on the number of diapers per family within the group and there is no limitation on the number of groups you can participate in each month! :)

Each group member may choose either a turned or serged fitted cloth diaper.  Each member may choose one size, little tush, or teenie tush.  All velour will be uniform among the 3 diapers.  If your group chooses cotton velour and has a color preference, please communicate it via email when sending in group member info.  We will accommodate the group's cv color preference if possible.  If it is not possible, I will choose another color at my discretion.

All diapers will be made with standard twinkie tush materials and will have the standard twinkie tush fold-down rise snap set-up.

All fabric sent in for groups and mini groups becomes property of twinkie tush.

It is not required that you have a mini group formed before purchasing a slot.  You may choose to form groups before purchasing the slots, or you may purchase a slot and then invite 2 other customers to join your mini group (or simply purchase all 3 diapers for yourself).  Please note that group member information is due within 24 hours of purchasing the slot.

The group member who purchases the slot becomes the group leader.

Process:

After paying the deposit for your slot, please communicate the type of diapers you would like, as well as cv color preference if applicable, by emailing groupcustoms@twinkietush.com. Also please include your mini group name (which can be anything) and member info (name, email address, name as it appears in paypal, paypal email address, finishing style choice, and sizing choice).  This information is due within 24 hours of securing the slot so that we can begin to process your group order.  Please cc all group members on this email.

After we receive your email we will reply to all with payment links for all remaining group members.  Those individual payments will be due within 48 hours.

Mini groups will then need to send in a minimum of one yard of a KNIT print, minimum 58" width.  Please note that if your fabric arrives and is not of sufficient size we reserve the right to cancel your group order.  Please make sure to include your group name with your fabric, either on an enclosed note or in the return address field on your package label.

Please note the different fabric requirements for different types of cutting within a mini group:

- Standard cutting requires one yard of a KNIT print, minimum 58" wide.

- Non-specific centered bum cutting (ie we center an element of the print on each bum at our discretion) requires 1.5 continuous yards, minimum 58" wide.

- Specific or "fussy" cutting requires 2 continuous yards, minimum 58" wide.

- If your fabric is 55-57" wide, we require 1.5 continuous yards for standard cutting, 2 yards for non-specific centered, and 2.5 yards for specific centered bums.

NO exceptions will be made to these requirements.  Please do not email us asking if we can accommodate a 27" piece of fabric, or if we can get specific bums out of 1.5 yards.

The fabric you send in will become property of twinkie tush and any extra fabric will be used at our discretion.

All custom diapers will be made with the standard twinkie tush materials.  As I mentioned above, I will try to accommodate requests for specific cotton velour colors based on availability, should you have a preference. Snap and thread colors will be decided by me.

Mini group diapers will ship 4-6 weeks after receipt of your fabric!

This will serve as the official twinkie tush mini group post, so that we have everything in one place! :)  Should we make any changes to the process, we will edit this post to reflect them.

Thank you so much!

  3. Under the new policy, does it now mean we can get multiple diapers per group?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Alika23 that is correct! :) (All in the same print as always, but you are welcome to get more than one per household.)

  5. Spinning off of Alika23's question: If I wanted to purchase three diapers (all in the same SYOF), I may do so if I score a mini group?

  6. Cheryl, yes that is correct! :) If you had a print you were in love with and wanted a diaper in each size, for example, you could do that via a mini group. Or a triplet set, etc.

  7. If the width is 48", can we send more yardage to make up the difference, or does that not work?

  8. Amy if you have a specific knit fabric in mind at that width you can always email info@twinkietush.com and we'll see if we can work with it as a 2 yard continuous cut. :)
