April Meeting Recap

Thank you for joining us last Saturday for our April meeting!  

This month we kicked off the Finish It! Challenge. Members were invited to select projects they’d like to complete this year. The goal is to finish them up in time for our October meeting. There will be a couple of check-ins as well, at the June and August meetings. 

Members were made aware of the Community Guidelines KMQG has chosen to adopt. Those guidelines may be found here.

Of course, we had Show & Tell. Here are some pics of what members have been working on and what they're planning to complete in the Finish It! Challenge:
