Wow, everyone, I am thrilled to see some of you jump in and just try it! The shells are a blast and they get better with each one. Felicia and Brenda in my class sounds like a LOT of fun, wooohoo!

Glad to have you with us Deb, be ready for a jam-packed fun 4 days!

Patty, I LOVE that shell, you really have a knack for them sweetie!
Beautiful job too Hannah, they are all gorgeous!

Classes are UP and ready for musing through....with sign up less than 2 weeks away make sure to find some time to pick 1st, 2nd and maybe 3rd choices for each time slot.

Hopefully we can get through call on Sat, June 4rth, but if not we will continue Sunday. I have a crew of gals coming to help out with sign up so it should go fast.

Can't wait to see the GS family again and new members....the highlight of the glassy year!

I am super excited about the class line up, we are going to have another GREAT event!
Hugs and happiness!
deb

Hi everyone!
Since there is a lot of info on this thread too I wanted to pop in here and remind everyone of the payment/class selection this weekend. The June newsletter will be out tomorrow night with all the info again if you need it.

We do still have a few spots for those who want to still sign up. If you jump in now you stand as good a chance at great classes as those who are ready to pick classes Saturday.

Can't wait to see you all there!
deb and the GS West team

So many choices Deb I'm having a hard time picking. I'm thinking of just throwing them all into a hat and randomly picking. lol

You can't go wrong with any of the classes. You might pick something that's just a little out of your comfort zone (like a beginning boro class if you've only done soft glass). You will strech you skill sets like you won't believe.

And if you don't get in to all of the classes you want, very often you will see a teacher demo something during the "official" demos, or later on during open torch, so you kind of get to see it anyway. All of the teachers are so very helpful!

I third what Kris said!

The sign up was super smooth, we managed to get all the calls done in 5 hours this year!

I got up early, made a yummy coffeecake and some Kona coffee and covered the kitchen table with rosters, phone # and payment order lists and of course, chocolate!

Thank you to everyone for being so nice, patient and super excited for September, all of us had a great time!!! Thanks to all of you, we laughed our butts off the whole time and long afterwards! In fact, I woke up still smiling but at least my stomach doesn't hurt anymore from laughing SO hard...thanks for the love, support and cheer from all of you!

After the blitz, we spent a few hours in the warm sunshine watching my koi soak up the rays too, had yummy filet mignons for dinner and a couple glasses of champagne while soaking in the hot tub! I slept like a baby!

Ahhhh...a fantastic ending to a great week!

Hugs, see you all in a few months!
deb

What a great day, Deb! Loved talking to you yesterday afternoon!

I hope everyone got the classes they wanted.

B updated the website and there's still a little bit of space for you if you decide, last minute, that you want to come to this event and haven't signed up yet. Where else can you learn to make a boro marble run with Bhandu and also learn Margaret Zinser's fantastic soft glass painting techniques all in one weekend?

Check out the website for more information, and email Deb.

Glad sign up went so smoothly and that you guys even managed to get some sun! It was weird to not be waiting on pins and needles for payment time and the calls this year (and also a lot easier to figure out what to take, having less slots to fill). What's everyone taking? I'm in MZ's class and Deb's blown shell class. I spent yesterday morning volunteering at Pratt during Sally Prasch's GAS Conference demo. It was pretty cool - scientific glass and how to stabilize tubing and tubing inside tubing for blowing.

I had several moments of panic yesterday as I kept missing Deb's calls! Can you believe it?! We were getting ready to go househunting and I couldn't find my purse as my cell phone was ringing! Luckily Deb called back. Then as I was getting out of the car, I dropped my schedule in the pouring rain and it got water logged. Then, we were having burritos and I went to get more salsa when I missed Deb's call AGAIN!! It was still pouring buckets of rain too.

But I did get signed up for all the classes I wanted, cuz I want to take EVERY class! Thank you Debbie, I can't wait! It even cleared up a bit now, so I might be able to get some torch time in today, my torch is outside.

See y'all soon!

Oh Wow I can't tell you the excitement I am feeling. I am going to meet Margaret and learn from her and yeah all that....and Patty I am going to be learning about little vessels....I own a tink and love it..can you believe someone sent it to me as a thank you one year. I will definitely be wearing it to your class. I got to talk to Deb...I waited until 5 and didn't get a call. I was like okay whatz up..so went to the internet to find a message from her that she didn't have my phone number. And even though I was one of the last called I got everything and more. Deb you deserved the awesome day you had. See you soon.

So glad everything went smoothly! I can't imagine how much of a headache it could be. But you're such a pro, Deb, you have it all figured out!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

BTW, I'll be contacting everyone soon for T-shirt sizes, so keep an eye out for your email! Hannah, I've already got you down for the XXXL.

If Hannah's an XXXL then put me down for an XXXS, this must be Oz where everything is upside down and backwards.

AW, I loved talking with everyone, it was soooo much fun! You guys are great!
Sorry for the delay Jo, but so glad you called....I tried frantically to find #s from last year to find you just as you were calling, whew!

Brenda, you sure had a day! We always gave it 5 minutes (great for coffee, potty, lol!) before calling someone back. Almost always we got the person before we had to move on so it went really smoothly! I just hope your food wasn't soggy too

Felicia, that rocks, Sally Prasch is amazing (so are you though!).

Penny and Jodie, you girls are always a pleasure to talk to!

Kalera, it was great having you come to GS, would love to have you back anytime!

Patty, you are SO funny and my stomach is still recovering, lol! I guess I better get a XXXL too.....and where is the wizard? I could use an extra hand for torching!

I will be sending out the hot shop schedule with item descriptions. We will handle the sign up via email but to make things easier we will have you still make the checks out to EGS but also mail them there, not here.
I will send the full Hot Shop roster to them when completed in a couple weeks.
You will have 2 weeks to pay for those spots after you email me what you would like to sign up for.

Also, we will have Patty collecting T-shirt sizes like she mentioned, she is SO great with the PC stuff! I just finished the art work for it and am now deciding on colors, etc.

The time is flying here, it will be Sept before we know it!

BIG glassy hugs!
deb and the GS Team

Lol, Michelle, I bet that was interesting! Well, people just don't understand and that is ok, we know it was important!

I can't wait either....time is going fast though...it will be here before I know it...

Thanks for the update Hannah, I love her knitted bracelet too!

Remember, we need your T-shirt sizes and correct name spellings sent to Patty asap so we can get your shirts ordered! Info on the latest newsletter.

I would love, love, love that! And, I'd even settle for a photo or two. Have to live vicariously by the rest of you all.

Aw, Les, Chuck and Lea...it isn't the same without you all! Wahhhhh!

I love all the new people we meet, the ones we already know that we look forward to every year and the ones we miss that we don't get to see that year, it always feels like a family when it is over!

We will keep the pics coming ladies!
xoxoxo deb
