New 90 COE Glass Has Arrived

New 90 COE glass has arrived!  Several of you have been asking for some more fusing glass so we are increasing our stock of Bullseye 90 COE glass. Just got this and several other beauties on Thursday morning. Come on in and check out the glass and if you are here during the week you can say hi to Henry. Heck, if you’re lucky enough like Erin it might even be dance Thursdays and you could cut some rug with Henry while you’re picking out your glass. Cha-cha-cha!

Cemented, Glued, Cleaned And Ready To Go

One of the things we always try to do when repairing stained glass is to maintain the look and value of a window when it is all finished. To make sure that happens we always try to use as much of the existing material from the window as possible. With these windows not only did we clean them, but it needed to re-cemented and and a few pieces were glued back together with a two part epoxy. Here they are good as new, well almost new. 🙂
