Holiday Show Scholarships for Members

UPDATE: We are thrilled to be able to support two deserving members with funds for holiday show applications. Congrats to Faheema of Unicorn Crafts and Tiffany of Shifting Status Kuo for being chosen as our first scholarship winners.

We are excited to announce that the first of those scholarships are being made available! We're starting small with a little help for holiday show applications for members. Read on below for the details.
