The NoMo:Icebreaker end of May 2018

November’s NoMo Icebreaker

There was the usual wonderful mix of new and familiar faces at the November NoMo Icebreaker social! It is always so good to see and experience the vibrant mix of people who are both brand new to poly and those who were doing it before there was even a word for it. Lots of stories […]
