 No, not  a death announcement.  I ran across the article I wrote that D
Brady put in his book, and made me wonder how my old pals are doing? Anyone
still around from 3 years ago?

I wasn't a prolific poster even then, but I'm still here, more or less.

Okay, okay! I admit it. I'm a lurker too....

In the past (IIRC) the group appeared to discuss mainly hot worked glass.

Any engravers/sandblasters out there?

I'm not sure about three years, plus I had a different account in the past
with a different name.  I haven't been here in a while mostly because my
insanely-small-scale soldering is still absolutely horrible, and I've been
trying to perfect it.  So I haven't done anything new in terms of technique -
just designing, and trying to do, tiny pieces.  My first eventual goal is to
make small pieces (3" to 5" in diameter, using brass macrame'/"craft" rings
as the outside frame) incorporating non-glass things such as Swarovski
crystals (well, OK, technically they're a type of glass, but they're more
refractive), interesting stones, shell, and so on.  Hopefully people will be
interested in buying these...   My second eventual goal is to make miniature
real-stained-glass windows.  Long story.  

But soldering tiny stuff is HARD!  Much more difficult than doing something
larger, because even the tiniest flaw is awfully glaring because of the small
overall size.  

So, it's just not anything that's particularly exciting to write about...

H. Rubin still around and still striping GLASS and selling it.
Down to my last ton or so

Every 6 months or so I look to see it there is anything here other
than the repost of the charter, doesn;;t seem to be much, the cycle of
stained glass has reached is low point.  In an economy that is in dire
straits world wide, it is one of those things that peope do not NEED,
and as such is relegated to the back and rear most closet of things to
do when,,,,,,

I dunno....yes, things have been slow in the retail end of stained
glass but I am seeing a slight increase in business. I think the
fusing part is more of a fad as the cost of kilns and such just keep
going up.
