Tutorial

Expert Village
Allison at Western Art Glass - Salt Lake City Utah
I just finished a Beginners Stained Glass Class where I learned how to make my first Garden Stepping Stone.  We used a hammer to break the glass and then fit the pieces into a pattern.  This is an alternate method for creating a pattern called "Scoring Glass" by Allison at Western Art Glass in Salt Lake City Utah.

I made a stained glass garden stepping stone that is curing and once it is sealed I will place it into my newly planted herb garden.  Gail Anastasio taught this beginners workshop and shared her step by step instructions.

Jerry and I are taking a road trip at the end of this week!  We've been invited to Jeri Lynn's Farm in Kinard, South Carolina to meet her new baby lamb.


Jeri Lynn will be showing us how she creates her hand knit wearables by shearing her sheeps wool, then dying it and spinning the fiber into yarn.  We'll share what we learn with our readers in future articles!   Please note that we will not be shipping orders out on Thursday, April 6 or Friday, April 7 while visiting the farm.  We will resume shipping on Monday, April 10.
