This year's Stone Foundation 'Stone Symposium' was held in Santa Fe.
Among the many people there my good friend Sean Adcock flew in from Wales to participate.

While there he taught a dry stone wall course and also gave an audio visual presentation.

Sean wrote recently to tell me his symposium talk was about a great publication called Stonechat... " and its imminent demise. Subscriptions are down by about a third, so less than 50 people pay to get it now, and less than 1 download per week of the free ones on line. Most annoyingly only 4 DSWA branches now support it. We can still afford to keep doing it but the lack of support has completely sapped my enthusiasm. You might do something on your blog and say that it costs only £8 in UK for numbers 29, 30, 31 ; £14 to North America; £11 to Europe, sterling via paypal. "

Stonechat is well worth the read and definitely worth the money. So let's support this informative journal which regularly documents a variety of dry stone walling subjects and projects around the world.
