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!
