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.

Blenko . Blenko. Blenko All for the Love of Blenko!
Perhaps if Blenko was worried about saving money they could cut you from the payroll, also the hot air balloons, the art classes and some of the other junk that isn't worth doing or related to Blenko Glass.
I don't expect you to publish this but do respond.
David, Your comment made me think immediately of quote from Martin Luther King
Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Blenko Glass is managed by a professional team. Blenko is very careful with money. Blenko is a family owned and I'm betting you don't have a dime invested in Blenko! In my family we have a rule - - "if its your dime - - you have a vote - - otherwise keep your mouth shut!"
Many people (collectors, neighbors, friends) love Blenko Glass and want very much to help in any way they can. In good times and in bad times!
We volunteer to the blog and the Blenko Project - multiple Blenko Collectors assist with both. Neither this blog http://herald-dispatchblogs04.blogspot.com nor The Blenko Project www.blenkoproject.org is funded by Blenko Glass.
We are not paid for the blog or the Blenko Project www.blenkoproject.org . We are not on a payroll.
The Hot Air Balloon - ( you have a long memory - this was 4 or 5 years ago) was brought to Milton by a devoted fan of Blenko. There was no cost to Blenko Glass for this event.
Many glass artist ( Ernie Downey - immediately comes to mind) volunteer to take photos, conduct classes, and assist with promotion and art at no cost to Blenko.
While I appreciate your concern for Blenko's budget and I do believe you are writing not with malice but with concern - - - Blenko's budget is something we should not worry with .
You want to help. I understand this. One way you might assist is to tell your friends and co workers about Blenko Glass. Gift Blenko Glass for Valentines' Day, All Holidays, All Gift Giving Occasions. Purchase glass from the factory. Buying after market ( vintage glass) does little to keep the lights on.
Thank you for buying Blenko, for your concern. I assure you many people find 'worth' in the blog and the www.blenkoproject.org, and the classes conducted at Blenko.
