February Show and Tell

Our February meeting at Roeland Park Community Center was brimming with hard work and was full of inspiration. Lucky for us, guild members showed previous workshop and challenge finishes and told us the stories of their KC Arts Challenge inspirations. Our regular show and tell was a wonderful bonus. See you in March!
