Just got back from Brussels where we attended the "Foire Aux Savoir Fayre" in the town centre. It was truly amazing. They had created ingenious ways to decorate each stall. My two comrades and I helped screw the banners to the stands and chatted to lots of the team know-how about their work. We were particularly enamoured with the chair upholstery and the squeeze your own orange juice bar. It was an inspirational weekend. Thank you Damien & Daniel.

Check out our newly made fabric bag. According to our friends at morsbag over 1 million plastic bags are consumed per minute globally. No one knows how long it takes for a plastic bag to biodigrade and they end up being mistaken for food by marine wildflife. Bring some leftover fabric to the fayre and we'll show you how to make one of your own.
More marvelous news, the wonderful Henrietta Norton at Can Create will be running ongoing story projects on the day. Creating new stories from old things and using games and activities to develop these stories. The installation will be growing throughout the day.
