Editors’ note: In the spirit of connection, and because our 2018 Symposiums are over and there is not as much opportunity to get together during the rest of the year, we’d like to use the Journal to introduce ourselves to each other. Each issue will have a photograph of one or two newer members and how they heard about the NorthWest Stone Sculptors Association (NWSSA.) 

How did you hear about NWSSA?

I discovered NWSSA when visiting the Seattle Japanese Gardens where they were hosting a soapstone carving class. I took a flyer and later checked out the website where I was excited to learn about the upcoming symposium at Pilgrim Firs. I needed a vacation badly, and I thought, "What better way to release stress than hammering stones in the woods for a week?" It turned out to be much more than I expected. I'm very thankful to have found "my weirdos," a community of the most kind, sharing and generous people I've ever met, who introduced me to a new passion in life. I'm excited about seeing everyone again next year!
