Thanks for sorting the signage ladies :D
We need it as much for people who are planning to come as for passers-by as Parents Place isn't too visible from the road. Bex may be able to get hold of one of those weighted sign things that we could tape our own signage to as well.

Well I'm learning a bit about these displays for next year:
1) Book the good places as soon as possible (like a year in advance for some)
2) The Base is a great place to do them
3) Civic plaza is not worth the effort
4) We could do with thinking about different ways to display the nappies and literature and better general information we could have ie: websites, nappy styles etc.

Had to finish up early today as it was just too windy - there was hardly anybody around in the morning and not many babies or bumps at all.

Hmmm... hard decision.

As not many would come off the street anyway "Nappy Expo" would probably be enough.

"Reusable Nappy Expo" is another option or maybe make the "Real" and the "Week" smaller in relation to the "Nappy" and "Expo" like:

Real
Nappy
Week
Expo

Just some ideas.

It's 8am-2pm

Hey, just wanted to say well done to all of you that organised the expo today - learnt heaps and it was great seeing and touching the different fabrics. Hopefully you got a lot of people to try MCN!
Thanks again,
Olivia

I'm glad to hear you got something out of it. :D

I just wish I'd thought about the fabric samples earlier - I should have the samples of the few fabrics that are missing from that set and have them all nicely presented in a book by next RNW.
