Judy Stanczyk was first introduced to ArtGlass Unlimited when she and her husband took a class there 25 years ago. This interested her enough to begin working at the business part time for several years. When she was given the opportunity to buy into the business in May of 2009, she decided to take the plunge and now co-owns the store. ArtGlass Unlimited is a diverse stained glass store that teaches a wide variety of both adult and children’s classes, sells supplies and does custom work ranging from windows for churches, home and businesses to custom gift items.
