I very much enjoyed the Exhibition at Perth Museum - but I was very annoyed that I was unable to obtain a copy of the book there.
It seemed, to me, to be very remiss not to have had it made available there and then.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I have very much enjoyed the book - Just wish the exhibition was on in Perth Western Australia, not Perth Scotland.  :mrgreen:

I feel a visit coming on !.

I plan a trip to UK for 2013 for about 6 months (lots of rellies so free accommodation  ;D)  - I will be trying to fit as many glass events in as possible

If you can get yourself to Dundee at any time, you are most welcome to visit my collection!
