Immerse in the world of stained glass inspiration, technology and professional craft by renewing your membership in the Stained Glass Association of America.
Not only would renewing or joining include a subscription to Stained Glass Quarterly for a year, but you’ll also help fund a range of nonprofit programs that support artists and elevate our field. Together, we provide resources for restoration, technical publications, mentorship, scholarships and so much more.
In the coming year, we hope to both reconnect in person with our many members and readers as we all celebrate the return to normalcy, which includes the return of the Annual Summer Conference, which was held in Toledo, Ohio in June, 2022. Additionally, more and more lectures, tours, and talks about the art and education of glass are being presented nationwide. All of this would not be possible without the generous contributions of readers and members just like you!
Now is the last opportunity to renew or join before rates increase!
