Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass announces the 2nd Annual Festival of Glass - its this weekend!
Today in my spam folder I found the following info re: Festival of Glass
We are offering all sorts of classes, many different ones and also a couple for younger kids. Demonstrations, Ron Hinkle will be here doing demo on Friday and Saturday, food vendor on site, cake and refreshments on Saturday, Live Radio Remote on Saturday and the most exciting of all is the 4 Craftsmen pieces that will go on sale Saturday. Each glass shop got the opportunity to do their own unique piece using existing molds. Each piece avail is signed by all of the shop craftsmen. . Les Womack will be here Saturday morning (Aug 8)from 9-10 making angels.
Check out the Blenko Glass website for information/ times / cost.

I bought the festival of glass vase last year per your instruction, is there a 2nd annual vase?

For the record, I agree with Dr. Bob
and also many others the lack of a link to this blog
is bad judgement on behalf of Blenko.

Question about the ornaments for WVU and Marshall
is the logo hand written or engraved?
Can you get a real photo to publish?
The website appears to be a graphic imagine.
