Hi all, I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Christine, mum of 4 and owner of Earthwise Girls: http://www.earthwisegirls.co.uk - this is my online store where I sell cloth menstrual pads, menstrual cups, menstrual sponges, plus a range of natural bodycare and hair products including crystal deodorants, shampoos and other odds and ends.
I've also got a Facebook group where I run regular competitions:
I look forward to getting to know everyone. I don't make my own, my abilities with a sewing machine seem to extend to breaking them rather than creating anything useful, so I bow to your greater knowledge if you're gifted with the sewing! Happy to talk to you if you make pads and are interested in me stocking your brand, just get in touch.
My name is Ashley & I help around on www.clothbank. net. It's a really interesting site that allows you to 'deposit' (so to speak) your unwanted mama cloth into a "bank" and buy & sell using "shares". It' s not a real bank, and there is no real money involved. You post your new or used unwanted cloth on the site, and hang onto it til someone decides they want it, then they send you 'shares' for it, you go to the real life PO and mail it to them. Then with the shares you've earned, you can purchase new cloth from the 'bank'. We'd like to get more members signed up (I It's totally free!! No real $$ on that site!!) so the more that sign up and start using it, the more of a cloth selection there'll be!! :)
Also, this site was founded by the nicest, most helpful lady (Laura) Please just check the site out....I'm sure it'll be something you ladies will be interested in!!!!
I've been on a sewing frenzy of late, and boy do I have pads to show! Lots and lots of new pads - and more on the way soon!
I now offer a grab bag of various patterned liners as well as the usual medium and heavy/overnight pads!
Please feel free to check out my etsy shop:
x-posting to a couple other places.
I have one shop on etsy and another hosted by congocart. I'm really really happy with the congocart shop right now, but I still feel loyalty to etsy and I also know that etsy has a different customer base -- and it's easier for women new to cloth to browse on etsy...
So what do you do? List the same pads on two places? Or do you keep them totally separate?
get 'em while they're hot girls! i just uploaded a TON!
i also have one for trade or free to a good home if no one offers a trade.
i was experimenting in heavy pads, which i've never made before. this is a first attempt, i'm not happy with it. i think it looks wonky, but i'm a perfectionist. maybe one of you will dig it.
it's 10" long, 3" wide when closed. this is super duper heavy, i think, but who knows... i dont use heavy pads, no need, so i'm not sure how to guage it. would probably make a sufficient post-partum pad.three layers of egyptian cotton terry. actually, it's two layers with a third small cut of terry applied to the center of the pad for added reinforcement, so it's just three layers in the center.
if you're interested in a trade i'm open to accepting regular pads or liners, but preferably nothing over 7-8" in length. if there are no traders interested i'm happy to send this off to anyone that wants it, it'll just collect dust here : )

I just listed a few sets of pads on Etsy! There's Halloween pads in regular and heavy, skulls and terry velour! You can find them here: Punky's on Etsy.

I plan to add some new fabrics to my website soon as well! Also, if you'd like to make a custom order, please visit: Punky's Pads!
It's sitting on my ISP's free webspace at the moment, don't know if I will splash out on a domain at this stage.
It doesn't have a shopping cart, just points to TradeMe where I sell my pads. But it does have lots of info. I'm actually a bit worried it might be too busy with info - overwhelming perhaps? I tend to ramble a bit.
