I own a lampworking studio and supply, brick and mortar store and on-line shopping.  I carry coe 104 (Moretti/Effetre, Vetrofond, Lauscha clear) and all the supplies for your glass beadmaking needs.  I also rent studio time, have classes with some wonderful bead makers, and I also teach beginners.

I'm so glad I found this! I am preparing my first glass mosaic project (I have done tile mosaic before). Yay!

Mine are both brick and mortar really, but they have websites...they just aren't really big enough operations to warrant a major website...I guess...
anyway, to the point! 
if you're ever in Wisconsin:
Green Bay: The Glass Haus (just google the Glass Haus) is a good one.  mainly stained glass but they have a fair selection of fusing stuff and other stuff too.
Madison: The Vinery (ROCKS)  They have some of everything and offer lots of awesome classes.  i think it's thevinery.com.

For those of you in Minnesota...You have GOT to make a trip over to Sleepy Eye Stained Glass in Sleepy Eye, MN. You will not believe your good fortune!  Sleepy Eye is a dusty little town West/SouthWest of the Minneapolis/St Paul area.  But trust me, it's worth the trip. 

The owners, Mike and Katelynn, and staff member, Linda are the best!..."MN Nice" at it's finest.  We found their website, http://www.sestainedglass.com more than a year ago.  Me, my hubby and his brother, have always been intrigued by the notion of doing stained glass and since Sleepy Eye is only an hour south of our own dusty little town in MN, we planned a little excursion to investigate.

Let me tell you...WOW!  Abso-flippin'-lutely WOW. It was amazing and very overwhelming. But a friendly conversation with Mike and Linda planted the seeds that we could do this. We could actually learn to do this. They offer classes, equipment, supplies and standing offer of advice was only a phone call away. 

We hatched a plan.  Over the summer, we would schedule a mini-vacation in Sleepy Eye and have 4 full days of instruction. That's a little out of character for their usual class schedule, but since there were three of us they accommodated us very well.

The rest, they say, is history. We're hooked...bait, line and sinker. We've bought several good pieces of equipment and set up a small studio in the basement.

We seem to be making trips back to Sleepy Eye on a regular basis.  I will admit after doing some comparisons with prices...you could probably do better getting some things on-line.  But there is a lot to be said for the customer service that you don't get buying on your home computer.  Not to mention buying locally. But really, the prices are very good. Especially the glass.

But most importantly (hence the reason for the posting)...the glass.....OMG! The glass they have!  *drool* Seriously. If you can't find that "right" piece of glass here....it doesn't exist. If you take a gander at their website, you'll be planning a trip. Mostly because of the pictures of the 10,000 sq. feet of glass...and partially because their website is a little lacking.  Tongue

Since I'm one of those who rarely say never.....I will say this:  I probably will *never* buy glass on line...That is a completely foreign idea to me.  I have been spoiled. Completely and utterly spoiled....I can't imagine picking glass for a project without being able to hold it up to the light to see the beautiful and ever changing colors and swirls.

Now.  For those of you who aren't in MN.  Sorry, I didn't mean to make you jealous  Wink  But you know....MN is a nice place to visit  Grin 

Sorry for the long post.  Since we are so new at this...I'm not quite ready to post any completed projects.  Still working on perfecting that soldering technique! But I'll get brave some day soon and post something for y'all to see.

I adore Bullseye Glass Company: http://www.bullseyeglass.com/
Olympic Color Rods: http://glasscolor.com/
Frantz Art Glass: http://www.frantzartglass.com/
Spruce Pine Batch: http://www.sprucepinebatch.com

And my friends Breezy and Loric run Bridgetown Glass: http://bridgetownglass.com/

They just asked me to be a tester for the new Bullseye colors as they get them in, which I'm looking forward to because I LOVE Bullseye! I used to work there, and they rock.

I would like to throw our hat in the ring as well, if I may. My wife Lily and I have both an online store and a brick 'n mortar that sells, amongst other things, Effetre / Moretti glass rods for lampworking. You can go directly to our lampworking supplies page by visiting this link:
http://www.BeadedLily.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=154

Our brick 'n mortar is located in Florence, Italy. Here's a link to our walking directions page:

Thanks for the opportunity to post!
