Suzann Fine, EastCentral Regional Director

Welcome to the East Central Regional page, representing Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. I am your East Central Regional Director, Suzann Fine. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or comments you have about the ISGB or the Southwest region, or if I can help you in any way.

On this webpage you will find a number of glass resources from our region. First there are the official ISGB chapters and other unofficial groups. They are probably your single best resources. Next is a listing of bead events in the region. For those that want to learn new lampworking techniques, I have compiled a list of instructional facilities in the region. Last, I have put together a list of primarily lampworking suppliers in the region for those that want it now or like to see before you buy. I hope that this list will be beneficial and if you know of other regional resources or events, let me know at
