February Meeting Recap

We had a fun-filled morning at our February meeting. In addition to the usual business, we incorporated a round of quilting-related icebreaker questions into show & tell. It was a fun way to learn a bit more about our members. Expect to see more of this at future meetings. We also welcomed three new members to our group who we're looking forward to getting to know better!

Now, for Show & Tell...
