No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

The online petition is here: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/senovpreservation/ - it currently has 582 signatures and closure is threatened by 1 April, so please if you feel this is important (as we do) add your support to the petition now.

Note: after you have signed the petition, you will be asked to support ipetitions by a small donations - this is not necessary for your signature to be valid, so just close that window. You will still receive an email advising you that your signature has been added anyhow.

More about the school here: http://www.supss.clnet.cz/stranky/en_novinky.html

And more about the closure in German here:

584 signatures... only 2 people from the GMB have signed since Simon posted this...  does no-one else care about the loss of this important glassmaking training school?  :cry:

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfngt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben sprt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfllt, und ein offeneres Verstndnis fr die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
