Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. Glasscraft has been treating me like part of their family since day 1. Since the second day I ever went into the store everybody went out of their way to know my name, which I don't need to say is a very comforting feeling. Every single staff member goes out of their way to make sure I'm and any other customers there are well taking care of. I would also like to say thank you to Glasscraft and Chris Schutz for putting together the Pipe Making 101 class. It was the most amazing experience! I learned more than I ever thought I could have in three days! I would recommend this class to anybody, and thank you again. I thought I would type this letter and some comments on the 101 class as a thank you to you kindness.
Students must be 18 or over.
