Cole Sonafrank's Links to Stained Glass
& Mosaic Forums & Resources

If there are other good forums or resources out there, please let me know! The glass craft, though perhaps not some self-interests, would be better served if some of these groups would choose to promote the most heavily used bulletin boards instead of running their own. It takes too long to try to follow them all. I'm tempted to only link to my favorites, but I don't want to choose for you. Just because they exist doesn't mean you must use them. blank space
