Ask Katie why they fired a lifetme loyal employee. She fired Don Lemley last week for no good reason. I used to work with him over there, he loved working at blenko. I know for a fact last year when they were hurting he worked 40 t0 50 hrs a week and only charged them for 32. Thats a good reason to let a man go.

I have two thoughts, (1) Doc Glass would tell you this blog is for positive Blenko comments (2) Lemley was a loyal employee, knowlegeable and this is hard to replace.

Does anyone beside me feel Katie
loves her own name more than the Blenko name?
I don't recall letters from Mr. Weekly signed by him
just an observatin.

If Don Lemley was fired
this should be spoken of on this blog.
Don Lemley photo and bio are frequently on this blog.
So what happen? Did they as someone said shut down the department?

Oh this is very bad news. Don Lemley did all the classes? Will all classes be discontinued?
Was the antique glass no longer profitable to produce?
My friends do stain glass work and say its difficult to use as its not even but worth the extra effort for the beauty of Blenko Glass.
Sad very sad news.

Katie is Hilary's age
very young (20 - 25ish)
Give the lady a break.
Perhaps having a name besides Blenko on letters is the right way to go.

sweetdoc - if haivng a name other than Blenko represent Blenko then Blenko is on the right trak.
Waiting not patiently to have lemly discussed on this blog.
