Great Glass Galore Business Updates

By Linda Ehlers - April 27, 2020

Class Updates
Due to the Covid 19 I have decided to cancel scheduled classes until September 2020.  Right now, I am not prepared to social distance in my classroom, or with the carpooling to my house.  I have a plan in place for September, if need be, of smaller class sizes and Plexiglas partitions along with the option to doing on-line tutorials and classes. 

If the virus lets up over the summer, I will offer some drop-in workshop times for both stained glass and fused glass students with whatever you want to work or get help on.  I will send out an email if this happens.

If you have currently paid for a cancelled class, you are welcome to get a refund on your class fee, or credit that can be used for later classes, workshop time, supplies, or labor for me to help you with a project. 

Business Hours Update
Boulder County has currently extended the “Stay At Home” order through May 8th , 2020.  So I am currently not inviting customers into my house.  You are welcome to drop off projects to be fired, and pick up purchased supplies/glass from my front porch.  Once the “Stay At Home” order is lifted, I plan to allow access to customers in my glass supply room on the main floor of my house as long as customers wear a mask.
For glass purchases, I am texting photos of glass in stock to customers and the customer can then decide what colors and how much to purchase.
I am also now taking payments through VENMO for your convenience.

Get Help
I am available for help via text, phone, email, or the Duo App.

For $36/hour I can help you with any part of your stained glass projects:
-Jig Making
-Pattern Making
-Metal Framing (Custom Wood Frames in cherry, maple, oak, and walnut can be ordered)
-Straight Edge Cutting

Kiln Firing: I have a  separate fee sheet for kiln firing.  Please request a copy.
Glass repairs: costs $48/hour plus materials.  It takes roughly one hour to repair one broken piece.  Less per piece if broken pieces are side by side.  Note: I no longer do lead came repairs, only the copper foil/solder technique.

Custom Window Orders:  I am booked out with custom window orders till September 2020, but have started a list of fall customers.

Anything else you need help on that you can think of, just give me a shout.

Stay In, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy. 

             HAPPY SPRING!
