Greetings from central AZ,
My name is Frank Luedtke (F).
I signed on the other day when I found posts from this group while searching
for a wholesale lampshade supplier. WOW ! Y'all are a pretty active group !
Makes me wish I was a potter instead of a quazi-woodworker. If it's any
consolation, when I lived in Door County (Wisc), many of my friends were
potters, including John Deitriech, Abe Cohen, Wally & Donna Wold, Thor &
Anyways ... I've been a professional furnituremaker/woodturner for almost 30
years and since moving to AZ a few years back I make (only) painted wood
lamps that I wholesale to galleries around the country and thru GUILD.COM.

I'll also be doing my first ACC show this Feb. in Baltimore.
So ... Can anyone point me towards a wholesale lampshade supplier,
preferably on the left coast or at least out west ?
I've read that Lampshades, Inc. in Chicago is good. Any comments ?
We're also trying to get some samples from Nu-Line, also in Chicago.
We bought from HandmadeLampshades in Ohio in the past, but have been having
a bit of trouble lately.
p.s. Does anyone in this group live near ARCOSANTI ?
