Helene Weis Memorial Education Fund: One of the many objectives of the Stained Glass Association of America is the preservation and transmission of stained glass knowledge. One of the great keepers of that knowledge was Helene Weis. The Stained Glass School, to honor her and the importance she held for stained glass history, set up the Helene Weis Memorial Education Fund upon her passing. These funds are dedicated to creating a library in Helene’s honor. The Stained Glass School is in the process of building an architectural stained glass school. Helene’s library will be the core of the learning that will take place there. If you would like to honor Helene Weis and support the Stained Glass School that she so strongly believed in, send your tax-deductible donations to The Stained Glass School, Attn: Helene Weis Memorial Education Fund, 9313 E. 63rd Street, Raytown, MO 64133.

  1. I don’t know of a site with any extensive list of stained glass job openings. However, if you ask your question in the SGAA Discussion Forum (http://sgaaonline.com/talk/index.php), perhaps someone there will be able to help you.

  2. I am a studio ower who is selling business and looking to relocate to a different city. Can you tell me if you know of a site that lists stained glass employment opportunities

  3. The Stained Glass Association of America accredits studios for their art and craft ability; however, we don’t certify appraisers. You’ll need to find a qualified appraiser to make a study of the window to determine its authenticity. The American Society of Appraisers would be one place to start.

  4. I I am considering purchasing a Maitland Armstrong stained glass window. Can you heop me identify it as an authentic armstrong window?

    Thank you
