I've been lucky enought to be able to travel in Europe, and have marvelled at the work done in some of the major churches and cathedrals there - Chartres in France is one example that comes to mind.
When I learned that thiswas a "do it at home" type hobby, I was fascinated, and hoped that one day I could try it. Well once The Stained Glass Place opened their new shop less than a mile from our house, that was the incentive we needed to begin - Lisa and I both signed up for their Beginner's Class, and then spent the money on the equipment needed to do this at home, and started. Our first two home projects are shown below.
