Newsletter Fall 2023


Hoping all of you are having a wonderful summer with gardening, traveling or whatever makes you happy!

To my new subscribers and future students – Welcome!

To all of you, I sooo look forward to seeing you again! Pepper and Ezzy too!

Here is the schedule for the upcoming Stained Glass and Mosaic workshops and courses. Please click this link!  I hope these dates work for you for the courses you are interested in. The info for each class is under the Academy on the menu. Cinnamon coffee, music and laughter are always included!


Is anyone interested in taking an Advanced Stained Glass/ Mosaic course? It is 8 weeks long and would be held on a Wednesday night or afternoon, whatever works. We go beyond the regular and we will get involved with each other’s project to toss around ideas to create that “something extraordinary”! Four students only! (experience needed) More info on the web page. Hope this works, as it is so much fun and extremely rewarding. 🙂

Private Workshop/Class

Private classes are available for help in designing, colour & glass selection, soldering and other glass working techniques. This can be cost effective and very productive as I am totally focused on you and your project. I keep you on track, as my fee is $90 per hour. Always seem to lower the final price. Lol

Just a laugh for you before I go!

From The Laugh Factory:

An elderly couple are in church. The wife leans over and whispers to her husband, “ I just let out a long silent fart. What should I do? The husband replies,” First off, change the batteries in your hearing aids!”

Hope this made you laugh!!!

I finally have a bathtub!! Yeah! I have waited since 2003 – and they say I am impatient! (Thought you might want to see the stained-glass lead windows. Way more sparkly in person!)


The Spring classes were wonderful!  Everyone made beautiful stained-glass windows and they were a joy to teach and to have them here in the studio. Four students designed their own Master Patterns – amazing windows! Well done guys!

I had many private lessons since February, and their work was awesome as well.

Studio Working Space

No room to work at home? Want some company? You can come and work in the studio if you would like, Wed. to Sat. from noon to 6:00, no need to call first, you just might have to wait a sec until I clean a spot for you! I work until at least 9:00 pm on those days, so evenings can work too if this is better for you. Just let me know. $5/hr includes grinder time. FREE for current students.  No instruction or teaching – not fair to the other students! Tools available as well if needed. Please call for more info.

Thank you so much for your time, support, and interest with this newsletter!! Still not totally into this emailing stuff – I miss the chats on the phone, so feel free to call or drop in!

Looking forward to having you here, big hugs, Cheers, Jan
