Before starting my own projects I'd been reading many how-to instructions yet this video gave me a couple of tips that I didn't even get when I visited a couple of stained glass shops. Thanks!

Absolutely wonderful

Hi there,

The video is not working unfortunately :(

I've tried multiple different browsers. Would love to see it though - any way to see it on YouTube or anywhere else? Email? Thanks!

I've replaced the video with one that actually plays. Hope that helps.
