February 2022 Meeting Recap

 Hello friends! We have been meeting online via zoom since early 2020. It has been difficult to write meeting recap posts, but we think we have a method now :)

In February, we welcomed our new board: co-presidents Gay and Mary-Ellen, secretary Kathleen, and treasurer Jenny. Thank you for volunteering to keep our guild going!

Some announcements:

In breakout rooms, we discussed our favorite pattern designers. Everybody agrees that there's nothing like a really well-written pattern!
