where’s victoria—the face of okan arts?

By Patricia Belyea

SEATTLE WA  As many of you know, Victoria Stone is my youngest daughter. Victoria has managed the Okan Arts online store since 2015 while she attended University of Washington.

As part of her job, Victoria displayed a newly listed yukata cotton pattern in the Okan Arts monthly e-news. Some readers admitted they clicked on each edition just to check out Victoria’s hair color.

Now that Victoria’s out of school, her role at Okan Arts has changed. She will no longer be handling admin work for the store. Instead Victoria will only be helping at special gatherings—guild presentations, trunk shows, and the Book Release Party in December.

Everyone loves Victoria and her generous spirit. So look for her at our events and not in the e-news. And wish her well with her new endeavors!

    So happy to ‘meet’ you Cousin Victoria. One day it will ‘really’ happen. In the meantime, congratulations on the completion of University and very best wishes to you in all your future activities. In the event that you find yourself in the midwest for any reason, pls remember your family in WI.

    Congratulations and all best wishes, Victoria! I’ve enjoyed the brief encounters we’ve had. Surely we’ll see each other again at Okan Arts events.

    Dear Victoria, thanks to social media I’m getting to ‘see’ more of my relatives. One of these days I’ll surprise everyone and turn up for a short visit. In the meantime, I wish you every success in all of your future endeavors.
    PS Your Grandma Belyea was always my fav aunt. I spent many summers in Britannia and so was able to spend lots of time with Grandma and Grandpa Belyea. Only once was she angry with me…I bit her (through woolen clothing) when she was riding a horse. She wouldn’t take me for a ride!!!!!

    Patricia – Thanks for giving us an update. Victoria’s lovey spirit (as well as her fabulous hair) will be missed. Looking forward to the Dec book release party!

    Maybe a “now and then” update on Victoria’s hair color ( and I also loved the bags when they became pointed in the center!!!). Best wishes in whatever her new path is to be.

  12. Wishing you the best as you continue your journey. Your education combined with the experience in your Moms business should quicken travels to that next goal. Good luck!
