  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
