Our Annual Membership Mice

By Sharon Fenner

For 2021, we offered two mice in Dandelion Yellow Carnival ($33) - a very bright opaque yellow, and Green Opalescent Iridized. The Green Opalescent Iridized mouse has sold out.  We are substituting Ruby Slag Iridized ($33) or Orange Slice Satin ($25).

Primary Members who are current on their 2021 dues may order their choice of two of the mice, per household. All colors are quite limited. 





For those who have yet to register for the NFGS 2021 Convention, there are no more rooms available at the Wingate Hotel. For other lodging choices please refer to the list of Vienna/Parkersburg accommodations in the May/June Flyer. It’s not too late to register, and there are multiple lodging options near the Grand Pointe Center in Vienna. We hope to see you at our 30th Convention in our 31st year!

2021 Convention Raffle

By Sharon Fenner

The first item is a Fenton Milk Glass Satin Happiness Bird, patriotically decorated in red and blue on white. This eye-catching example of Trudy's intricate hand-painted design of butterflies, flowers, a heart and scrolls would be an awesome addition to your collection.


Nobody does whimsey and Halloween better than Kim Barley, and this Mosser Caramel Ghost is no exception. A bat, a hat, a cat, and several jack-o-lanterns adorn this ghost. Check out the spider in the web sharing a piece of candy corn. It just 'screams' Halloween!



On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have this beautiful Fenton Mulberry vase which has been sand-carved then adorned with a gorgeous floral design, highlighted with gold, created by Frances Burton. The photo doesn't do it justice! Sadly, we won't be seeing any more Mulberry glass since Fenton is no longer producing these lovely fade-up glass treatments. Take a chance, buy a chance, you could by chance be the lucky winner!

On your Registration Form please indicate how many tickets you would like to purchase for each item. You may divide the tickets any way you like. Jay will fill out your raffle tickets at the NFGS office. The drawing will be held on Monday evening after the banquet. You need not be present to win. If the winner is not in attendance, he/she will be notified and the raffle item will be shipped after the Convention, postage paid.
