Gord Hawthorne Owner

As for many people, I started stained glass as a hobby and fell in love with it.  That was many years ago and I became particularly interested in Tiffany style lamps. I opened this store and studio over 27 years ago and have become one of the most premier teaching and supply locations for stained and art glass in the province. I am very proud of what we have accomplished here and find it very rewarding to be able to share my passion for stained glass art with you.

Stella
Official Greeter

As a tradition, we've always had Golden Retrievers as Official Greeters  at the store.

We first had Bayley, then who many of you knew, Maddie, who we lost in January.   We love Golden's for their friendliness and sweet nature - an excellent choice for such a big job.

Well, we now have Stella.  She is a confident, strong willed and intelligent pup who will welcome you with enthusiasm, a wagging tail and is always happy to receive belly rubs.
