Magically February


And somehow…it is February!  The guild didn’t meet in January since our regular meeting night fell on New Year’s Day, so February’s meeting was our first meeting of 2019.  Typically at the January meeting we do our MAGIC Reveal and sign ups for the next year’s MAGIC, but alas it happened in February this year.  So, everyone that participated in MAGIC (My Annual Good Intentions Contract) brought their finished (or almost finished) pieces they committed to for 2018.  It was fun to see the progress everyone made as well as some amazing prizes were awarded and those that participated received a gift.

Now on to our regular Show & Tell!
