    Overnight success is a rare occurrence. Instead, reaching a goal takes time and slow, gradual and determined progress.

    “It is mostly just by word of mouth,” said Weed. “I’ll get a call. They might say ‘I am so-and-so’s cousin and you did this, or that, for them.’”

    Weed began working with stained-glass about 23 years ago. He saw an advertisement for adult education classes in Jefferson County and one class in particular caught his eye as it piqued his interest. The class was working with stained-glass.
