How would you describe your specialty handcraft?
I make stain glass crosses all diffrent textures and colors that are 7-inches by 10 inches.
What or who inspired you to become involved in it?
I was inspired by my Christian faith.
How long have you been doing this type of work?
I have been making stain glass crosses for about a year now.
Do you do it for your own pleasure or offer it for sale?
I make them as gifts and for sale for $15 each. I enjoy the peace it brings me when I make them.
Is your handcraft available for sale and if so, where?
They are available via email: Wilktd1224@yahoo.com or by phone 897-1576. They are also sold at local craft fairs.
Have you taught others your handcraft and if so, would you be willing to teach it to others?
I would reach anyone who would like to learn. (It’s not that hard.)
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I have taught public school for many year in over five different states and then I retired in Minot with this new hobby that I love.
