This year’s Flower and Garden Show was an absolute success, and I expect we will be seeing a lot of new carvers at our symposia, and more viewers at our art walk. We sold 8 sculptures and there were a number of commissions which were passed on to the relevant carvers in our group. Some of you might be hearing from strangers.


We received a number of requests for the usual auction donations (if you are interested in donating a piece, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please put “stone” in the subject line so I don’t dump it).


Several people invited members of our crew, like Nancy Green, to be in local shows. I would like to thank all the people that assisted in the setup, manning of the booths, and take down. We had about 20 of you wonderful folks helping with the work.


I am not allowed to do the booth next year, as my husband is kinda annoyed at the lack of help that I got gathering everything as well as his having to build stuff, which took him away from his job. Part of the fault is mine because I have this thing about not wanting to bother anyone. When I asked people to help this year after he got mad at me, they were more than willing to lend a hand. My husband has tirelessly worked on our booth for many years. He keeps saying that he won’t help and then he does anyway, without complaining. So I am going to take a year off, but I hope that whoever runs the booth will allow me to man it daily, as I am finding that I am good at selling the group and the sculptures. I just love doing it. The people that you meet are just wonderful and fun to talk to.


The long and short of it is: we will need someone to step forward and take over the job of designing the booth and setting it up. I will be glad to give that person some help with the process so they don’t have to start from scratch. Most people are unaware that this show brings many new members into NWSSA. People like Bob Olander and Verena Schwippert. If we loose our space in this show, competition for spaces, even in the Education section, is such that we might not be able to get back in. So if you are interested, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
