Default Glass suppliers in Western Washington State

Hey all my lampworking friends, my freind Karen, Karen and I are taking a road trip to the Tacoma Glass Museum in a couple of weeks and want to put together a list of glass suppliers to stop in and visit/shop while we are there! I know of a few.....Frantz, Momka, Olympic Color, Double Helix.........can any of you wonderful folks tell me who else I should go visit?

Thanks so much!

Deb

Default Bearfoot Art Glass Studio in La Conner, WA

Hi, we do not sell glass and supplies, but if you happen to make it up north to La Conner during your stay, you would probably enjoy coming by our studio. I don't know if you've heard of Scott's tools, but if you have, you could have Scott give you a demo if you'd like. He makes the Electric Mandrel Spinner, Rolling Marvers, Powder Vibe, etc. Or you could just come to see our gorgeous town and look at a lot of great eye candy in our shop.
If you happen to be here Jan. 31st, you'd be able to buy a ticket if you like to attend an event here we are doing with our neighbor (fine art painter). For $35, you can see Scott doing a demo on his fossil cylinder bead and Aleks will be painting a still life from start to finish. Reception at lunch time. Great fun.
Anyway, have a great trip!

Hot Glass in Seattle is just a few blocks from OCR. They sell Kugler and they have a hot shop with seats so you can watch them blowing glass.

Northstar glass in Tigard Or, Glass Alchemy in Portland, Bullseye glass in Portland, Momka's in Lynnwood Wa are just a few of the glass manufactures I would certainly stop by for a tour and buy some glass from. call a head to each , but most are very cool in you dropping by.
if you make it as far as Eugene? Winship and Cornerstone are good shops as well as Aquila Art Glass in Portland.
From Tacoma its about a two hour trip to Portland. fun town, great glass source
