NOTE  
July:  No classes or private lessons.  I will not be firing projects for customers in my kilns.
August:  I am available for private lessons of 1 hour at a time.  This applies to help with one step in the beginner process of stained glass or non-beginner help with a special project.  I will fire projects in my kilns, but delays may happen due to my travel schedule.

(I will not be doing longer private lessons for a complete class or group lessons till November.)


I've recovered much quicker from my surgery than expected.  I was able to walk 1-3 miles the first week, 3-4 the second week, and hike 4-7.5 the 3rd week.

Great Glass Galore Closed June 15-July 15, 2021


By Linda Ehlers - June 1, 2021

Great Glass Galore Closed June 15 - July 15, 2021

Note my summer hours have changed due to a major surgery I am having on June 15th.  I also am not sure what my hours will be for the rest of the summer, but I will send out an email/blog as soon as I know and you can find the latest closed hours in the upper right hand corner of my website.  Because of this, I have also pushed out group class start dates to November 2021.  I've also made public my snowflake and beginner stained glass cutting class on my Great Glass Galore YouTube channel and plan to release more videos this year.

Consignment Stained Glass Orders
I am no longer taking stained glass consignment orders, but am still doing copper foil/solder method stained glass repairs.  (Note:  I am no longer doing stained glass lead came repairs.)  This past year I've been crazy busy with consignment orders and would now like to spend some time working on my own projects.  Thus, I am no longer taking orders and would like to give out a list of artists who do consignement orders and pass this on to customers that contact me.  If you'd like to be on this list, please give me the following info:

.  Name
.  Phone #
.  Email
.  Any websites or social media accounts where your work is displayed.
.  What type of work you do.  (Stained glass-lead came, stained glass-copper foil, mosaics, fusing, repairs, large windows, window installs, framing etc.)
.  Bio (Years of experience, years in business, eduction, work goals, etc.)
