MORRIS, IL - The Stone Fabricators Alliance (SFA) recently finished up its third straight year of continuing education workshops. The workshop was hosted by Dan Riccolo of Morris Granite Co. in Morris, IL.

The sponsors brought with them new tooling, adhesives and products that are currently on the market or coming soon to the marketplace for the fabricators to put their hands on, experiment with and give them real-time feedback.
