A cloth diaper home party, like they have for Tupperware and stuff. You could have samples from all different WAHMs, all different styles, wool, PUL, side snap, front snap, pull on, CPFs, etc. etc. .... I'm getting woozy just thinking about it. Wouldn't that be great??

Many WAHMs do free cloth diapering classes, but do not have the selection of 'WAHM' made products. Usually only the mass-manufactured diapers are represented.

These classes have a high response rate - to be able to feel and touch makes a world of difference!

I did some way back when I had more time. It was really fun... I did it a bit differently than the tupperware style... it was more of a 'show off' party where we brought a bunch of our favorites for others to check out in person. I did sell some of mine too, but that wasn't really the focus.

FB does parties now with their whole line... you just need to find a diapering consultant, or whatever they're called.

I would love something like that. I like to touch and feel before I buy. Now if someone could just get something like that organized!

This is along the lines of what I was thinking about last night while laying in bed, diaper dreaming....

Wouldn't it be cool if there was a diapering convention? One that we could all get together and meet and all the WAHMS would have booths set up for us to check out? That would be awesome.

A little OT - there is a girl on bbc that has home parties for slings. You could do slings and cloth - that would be fun too.

A local email group I'm on is having a diapering 'show and tell' next week. We're all bringing a list of our favorite resources and bringing our favorite diapers for a massive touch and feel session! :LOL I can't wait!
