Dakota Handcrafters: Terry Wilkins

Current Hometown: Minot

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.
