Next Saturday, September 6th, we are having our first art show at the shoppe. Mary Sims-Morey will be opening her show "Faces from the Coop" at 10:00 am. The show is a collection of “classical” portraits, with a variety of chickens as the subjects. Plan to drop by, talk to Mary, and enjoy looking at her newest work. The show runs to September 13th during shop hours.
Just finished and hung a new lamp in the front window. This lamp uses a piece of green glass that we have had in inventory for years. The challenge was to use it so that it became the focal point of the piece.
I am plesed with the finished product!
Here is another lamp we recently finished. It is a design we had made previously but have used different colours.

Today is the 30th anniversary of our shop in New Germany. We opened our doors on May 15th 1984. We started in the stained glass business selling at craft shows and in the summer of ’83 we had a shop in Broad Cove at a friend’s studio. On our property in New Germany there was a building which had been used as a shoe repair shop, mail carriage storage and a home for many families over the years. We began to renovate and in 1984 opened for business. We have continued to change many other things about the shop including adding more room and moving the entrance. Here are a couple of pictures, obviously taken before digital cameras.
As part of our celebrations we are holding two draws, giving away a $30. gift certificate to be used for any glass purchase in our shop. If you are on facebook, just like the gift certificate post and your name will be entered in the draw. If you share the post you will get two entries. Contest will run for one week and close on May 22, 2014. We are also doing an in-shop draw for a $30 gift certificate. Just drop by our shop to enter, no purchase necessary. That contest will close on June 15.

Even though it keeps snowing in New Germany, we keep plowing all that white stuff aside and are open.
Recently hung several new panels in the front windows.
We have made these designs previously, slight changes in glass colours. It is fun to make flowers in the winter, dreaming of spring when we get see the real things. Check out the Stained Glass Panels page for larger pictures and more details.
February 2, 2014You can treat your sweetheart with a gift from Village Glassworks this year.
We have had a number of snow storm days here in New Germany, but we are still open if you would like to drop in.
And the Valentine's Day display is in the front window. There are lots of stained glass hearts in stock and we are working on even more.

We are officially in our 30th year here in New Germany. Our shop on Highway 10 opened on May 15, 1984. The years have gone by in a flash of colour!
The inventory is counted and we are back to cutting glass and working on orders. This week we are featured in a story in our local newspaper The Lunenburg County Progress Bulletin. If you want to check out the story it is in the Business section.
