Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass
Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Searching for Blenko Collectors
We live in Mineral Wells and collect Blenko and Harmon glass. Every other weekend we are out there at estate sales or flea markets searching for newbies for our collection.
Last year we decided to join the Blenko collector group w/o success can you update us on this group or make suggestions for glass groups we can join?
Harvey and Jane D.
Thank you for reading Heart of Glass and for collecting Blenko Glass. I have no new information about the Blenko Collectors Society - Sweetdoc has a group of about 20 people that meet the first Wednesday evening of each month, Doc Bob in the eastern panhandle belongs to a group of 50 people that collect American glass, Chitra belongs to a group of 15 or so - there are small groups of serious collectors.
Perhaps we should decide to proclaim a date and time and "meet" after June 30th I'm available. While I won't have time to be responsible for a group I'd love to be involved in a Blenko or American glass group.

Any other groups? Our readers may have more info about the BCS, if you have info about BCS or suggestions for Harvey and Jane (a glass group) please leave a comment or if you want to protect your address email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll forward the email.
