Welcome to the National Fenton Glass Society, Inc.

Formed in 1990, the National Fenton Glass Society is chartered by the State of Ohio as a not-for-profit corporation. The Society's purpose is to promote the study, understanding and enjoyment of handmade glass, the handmade glass industry and especially glass made by the Fenton Art Glass Company, of Williamstown, West Virginia. The NFGS strives to foster informed discussion among all who wish to learn more about this traditional art form.

Dates for the 2016 NFGS convention are July 30, 31 and Aug. 1.

Convention headquarters will be the Quality Inn - Marietta. Quality Inn is being updated. The Breakfast Room/Glass Sales Room has a fresh, new, color scheme. The Ballroom has been re-done in bright, neutral colors, has new window treatments, and lighting that will best showcase our glass displays. Undo's, the attached restaurant, has undergone a facelift too. It has a much brighter, quieter, more pleasant atmosphere. There's more to come.....

Due to unfortunate circumstances, the mailing of the July/August issue is delayed. It is scheduled to mail on Monday, July 11. NFGS members, what you will receive prior to getting the July/August issue is a repeat of the May/June issue, Board of Director ballots, return envelopes, and absentee bid forms. Please pull these inserts from the May/June issue which you will receive yet this week.We apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your understanding. In an effort to get important Board of Director election information and convention details to you as soon as possible, the sitting Board has decided to make a PDF of the July/August issue available. You will find that PDF on the National Fenton Glass Society page on Facebook.

UPDATE 7/11/16:

The July/August issue of The Fenton Flyer went in the mail today. Please be sure to pull the inserts from the mailing sent a week ago - ballots, mailing envelope, and absentee bid form. We apologize for the late arrival of this issue. Please check out the bios of the candidates for the Board of Director positions, and return the ballots as soon as possible. Also, if you are placing an absentee bid, please send that to the NFGS office as quickly as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

UPDATE 7/15/16:

As stated before, the reissue of the May/June Flyer along with ballots, return envelopes, and absentee bid forms was mailed July 5. The July/August issue was mailed July 11. Some members have received one or the other, and some of our members have yet to receive either mailing, myself included, as of July 15. Another issue is that the last names of members have gone askew. Flyers have been received at the address on the label. When you receive a Flyer with an incorrect last name, it is your Flyer.

Regarding the deadline for mailing your ballots: the NFGS Board of Directors has voted to suspend the by-law requirement for this one-time situation, and count all ballots received prior to the counting of the votes, which is scheduled for July 29.
