We had a very successful night at the Chicago Institute of Fine Finishes, impressing the good people of IDS (Interior Design Society, Chicago chapter) with all the many different things we could do. About 10 IDAL Heartland people were displaying samples of their work and on hand to answer questions. There were nibbles. There were drinks. There was talking & hand-waving. It got a little noisy. We're planning another one for Chicago folk, coming soon.
