  2. Many years ago, I took a half-day class on Saturday and became hooked on stained glass. At the time I was working full time and traveling so I could not pursue my hobby. I promised myself when I retired, I would do stained glass. So, advance forward many years, I’m retired and now no in-person classes are available. Only option…on-line, some good and some just ok. Then I discovered Milly’s, she is an excellent instructor, not just the basics but all the “tidbits” that you only learn through years of experience and she enjoys sharing it all. Besides the classes she has lots of other resources available through her site and a great group of “helpers” on her Facebook group, plus direct communication via emails. If you can’t do a class in-person then this is the next best thing and well worth the cost of the class. One of the many features is that you can go at your own pace and repeat as many times as you like. When I first began, I will admit I rushed through and after making the same mistakes I was getting frustrated, so I decided to stop, go back, and review and take everything step-by-step as she laid out, I was amazed how it all seem to click into place and my finished pieces were so much better. Life happens and I don’t get to do glass as much as I would like but anytime, I start struggling I just go back, re-watch, and then move on. Take her classes and learn through her experiences, you won’t regret it or at least I haven’t.

    • I’m so pleased you rewatched the classes and found that everything fitted into place Jerri; that is SO very nice for me to read as a teacher. I’m glad too that you have got started with your long-ago wish of making stained glass; often these stay as wishes. Hats off to you for making it happen and long may you continue to improve and love stained glass.
      Thanks for taking the time to write a review 🙂

  3. I attended a Stained Glass course years ago and enjoyed it. Because of Covid, I knew I would be staying home a lot last winter. I decided to learn how to do Stained Glass. I started with the help of a friend and had a couple of disastrous projects. I then looked through videos on YouTube and came across Miley’s tutorials. They were very helpful so I signed up for the beginning corse and the course on conquering curves. Both were excellent – very well organized with clear easy to understand and follow directions. I’m sure, the course on curves paid for itself in avoiding the constant breakage of expensive glass the was a constant before taking the course. I’ve since made many beautiful glass projects and still refer back to the videos and paper copy workbook when I’ve been away from it for a while. I would recommend both courses to anyone who is started out or looking to improve their skills.

    • A course that helps ‘avoid the constant breakage of expensive glass’! That’s a quote that gives me big pleasure Lynne, thank you. It’s great to hear that you’re making many beautiful stained glass projects now.

  4. Milly and her teaching “way” are a true discovery and gift in my search to resume working with stained glass. What stands out: Milly is kind and her upbeat, positive approach to each step is energizing (“ I can do this”)! I am grateful for the “ personal touch” in response to questions, and learning from Milly about the Facebook group, where it is easy to talk to others about tips.. Thank you for a wonderful reintroduction to the “ art” of stained glass, Milly!!I have read, Re-read, highlighted, and kept close to me on glass work area, all your tips and suggestions for best outcomes of each step in the process.

    • I’m happy that the course has eased your way back into stained glass Suzanne. I have a great image of you in your workspace surrounded by highlighted pages and instructions LOL!
      Thanks for taking the time to add your thoughts on the course, much appreciated.

  5. I had been on a stained glass course to make a lampshade, but I felt that my work was as refined as I would have liked.
    Milly’s course helped me with cutting more accurately and also helped with my soldering.
    I am looking forward to doing the course for lead came.

    • So glad to hear that the course helped you cut more accurately and improved your soldering skills Janice 🙂

  6. I had taken a few classes locally several years ago, and needed a refresher badly after we moved 700 miles away from my previous instructor. With Milly’s class I like that you set your on pace and can always go back any time you want to check yourself on something. I love that she tells you no one way is right especially on holding your cutter, you need to find what works best for you. I like the print outs and she takes her time and shows mistakes and how to correct them, not just one way but often several ways. I am taking another class now from her. But the best thing of all is the community you get to join and all the wonderful people you get to know and also learn from, I have picked up many tips and tricks from the group as well as Milly always updating us when she finds something new that is working better for her. Thank you Milly you are a valuable teacher and look forward to working and learning with you for many years to come.

    • That’s so good to read Nancy, thank you 🙂 It’s interesting that lots of reviews are mentioning that I try to get people to find out what works for them personally. That gives me pleasure as it’s a bit of a mantra of mine LOL.
      The community of students (the Stained Glass Hub) is full of delights isn’t it? Something new to learn all the time – we’ll be in there together 😉
      Thanks for taking the time to add your thoughts about the course.

  7. Taking this course was the best thing I could have done in order to start off learning Stainglass. Everything is explained in such good detail, you really can’t go wrong I highly recommend this course to anybody who wants to take on the arduous task of creating beautiful art for Stainglass.

    • Ooh I do love a good detail Michael 🙂 I’m glad that you found my focussing down on all the little things helpful.
      Thanks for taking the time to review the course, much appreciated.

  8. I have been working on stained glass for a few years. The course was not only a great refresher but I learned a few new techniques especially with soldering. My lines are so much neater! I really enjoyed the humor throughout the course too! She keeps the instruction foremost, and lets her personality shine through perfectly.

    • ‘Neater solder lines’!!! I love to hear this Cynde, you have no idea how much 🙂
      Aw, that’s nice about my delivery too – thank you. I always hope my humour doesn’t put people off but it pops out unexpectedly despite all!

  9. This was a great course! I had no experience with cutting and working with glass and it not only helped me learn about creating stained glass items, it gave me confidence on a home renovation project when I needed to cut glass for paned windows. Her instructions on soldering were easy to follow and put into practice. Milly is a fun and relatable teacher and I really love the emails that I still receive from her about working with stain glass.

    Reply
    • I have an image of you renovating homes all over the place now Nancy! I love to hear that the class helps those who’ve never cut or soldered glass before – I think on-line is actually better for those close-up explanations; you don’t have other students’ heads in the way of your view 🙂
      Thanks for posting your thoughts about the course, I appreciate your time.

  10. Milly is an excellent teacher- she clearly explains and demonstrates techniques as well as showing how to fix problems. Just watching her solder where multiple points meet was a game changer for me.

    • That’s good to know about the soldering ‘game change’ Anne 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to review the course, I appreciate it.

  11. I started out self teaching and did pretty well. Then I hit a plateau and was just stuck and didn’t know how to improve the skills I’d been learning. I finally took the leap and signed up for Millys class and I’m very glad that I did. It changed the way I cut, helped improve my soldering skills and gave me confidence in my work that I hadn’t had.

    Reply
    • Changing the way you cut, improving your soldering and gaining confidence is your reward for taking the leap Laura. Reaching that plateau is the pits and you changed it by doing something about it. Good for you!
      I’m happy that my course helped you when you were stuck; music to my deaf ears LOL! Thanks for your review 🙂

  12. I took the Stained Glass Made Perfect course several years ago, after taking an introduction to stained glass class at my local stained glass shop. It was the perfect course to reinforce what I learned in the in-person class and teach me additional techniques. This is just one of many courses I have taken with Milly. I love how simple Milly makes her courses! From beginner to master craftsperson, you are sure to learn new things from Milly’s courses, as well as from the enewsletters she sends out.

    • It’s great to hear that you learnt some new techniques from my classes Diana, that’s very good to know. Simplicity is good! Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it may help others decide.
      (nice to hear from you again, too 🙂 )

  13. I had been taking lessons from a local stained glass studio and done several projects. I saw Milly’s on-line class and decided to sign up. Boy was I ever glad. I learned much more in depth than taking the local class. I have been able to improve my soldering skills and have gone on to more complex pieces because of the confidence I have gained from taking this course. Thank you Milly! (PS, I like that I was able to print out the modules and look at this “bible” frequently!!)

    • It’s fantastic for me to hear that you learned new skills even though you’d already done several projects Linda. The great thing about on-line is that I can be very thorough and know that you can watch and learn at your own pace, so there’s no fear of overload as you can turn me off LOL!
      Thanks so much for your kind thoughts. I’m glad you found the class useful.

  14. Having had a fascination with stained glass for years, I took the plunge and enrolled on a course and have never looked back. Hints and tips just keep coming and you learn new skills to improve your work as you go. Milly’s easy style, and presentation skills, make for a relaxed learning experience. It gives you the confidence to have a go. Anyone thinking of trying stained glass art, try a course and you won’t look back. Thank you Milly.

  15. I loved doing this course with Milly, she teaches in a very easy way so very understandable, no technical jargon. She explains everything clearly. I can’t wait to do another course.

    • I’m very happy to hear I’m clear with no technical ‘overkill’ Linda. Thanks for your comments, I appreciate you taking the time.

  16. Milly is incredible. I got back into stained glass after 20 years and became frustrated quickly – nothing was working right. Videos online were informative but were not helping me fix my issues. And then I found Milly. Stained Glass Made Perfect covered everything – now my glass cuts are clean, my pieces have stopped growing, and I’d put my soldering up against anyone’s. 🙂 Thank you Milly!!

    • ‘Clean cuts, panels the correct size and good soldering’ that’s fantastic for me to hear Virginia, thanks so much for taking the time.
