After we grabbed some lunch, we headed over to the open house at Nortel Manufacturing, a.k.a. the place where they sell the glass and the torches and the flameworking supplies. We'd never been there before and it was a bit disconcerting to make our way behind the industrial buildings and through the mile high snowbanks to their office (it was hard to see the signs, they were almost hidden by snow) but it was well worth the effort, we were not disappointed!
They had several different types of torches set up and Dwyn Tomlinson and Amy Waldman-Smith were giving demonstrations. There were packages of glass everywhere in every colour of the rainbow and then some. The place is cluttered to the ceiling with stuff but has a really good feel to it and everything is very organized. Of course, we did not go away empty-handed, the sale prices were fabulous - many thanks to Jean and our buddy Lorri for helping us to make selections as well as for the free samples they added to our purchases.
Can't wait to get back to the torch next week to try out the new stuff!
