How does the average joe, without a Blenko connection get to know the Blenko glass workers?
Sue, Shorty Finley and Les Womack and many other retired workers come back to Blenko Glass for the Festival of Glass. You might want to plan a trip to Milton during this time.
Les Womack is responsible for most all Angels and Snowmen sold at Blenko. Womack returns several times each year to assist the current Blenko Glass workers. Shorty Finley returns for Festival of Glass. Check out the www.blenkoglass.co website for information. hjh photo of Les Womack and Shorty Finley 10/10
