INDEX: September 2013

This month we offer a wide variety of special features: we visit J.C. Stone, the new sculpture trail at the Viles Arboretum in Maine, and we congratulate two other notable companies as they celebrate anniversaries this year – Hilgartner Stone (150 years) and Creative Edge Master Shop (25 years). Enjoy our helpful advice and commentary, penned by folks in the stone industry, or experts in their craft – just like our readers. Send your letters and comments to If your shop is doing something interesting–we want to tell your story.L.H
