So it's great to see that Mary Horesh from Birmingham Friends of the Earth is setting up a group called “Its a wrap” centering on alternative wrapping for Christmas.
She's looking for fellow crafters to come along and help make items such as material gift bags for bottles and CDs out of reclaimed material. See here for more info.
Her aim is that what's produced will be sold in aid of Birmingham Friends of the Earth at their annual Christmas Fair in Birmingham on the 19th December in Moseley. I'm sorry that I can't go along to see all of the goodness - but some myfuroshiki will be there!
