Stained Glass Software by Michael[_2_]
I have got several transom-shaped windows in my house. Stained glass windows to fit inside of them will be my first foray into stained glass. I am not much of an artist, but from all the pattern books I've found available, that shouldn't prove to be much problem. Choosing the proper glass to use...

Semi-OT - forum censorship by Kalera Stratton
I have recently found out that Wetcanvas is actively censoring certain links (to other forums) out of private messages between users... and this really upsets me. I personally have made furthering accurate information about lampworking one of my core values, and it breaks my heart to see a popular...

Lurkers Speak! by Glassman
I respect your right to lurk, but if each of you would try and become just a tad more out of the closet, just think of how much more fun this place would be. Try one post, or better yet one thread start, or one question. This board is really drying up, and that's the primary reason for the...
