End of May is NOT far away.

If you are planning on taking this class, please register soon. I really want to secure "Lucio Burners" from Carlise (http://carlislemachine.com/), but I can do that only if enough people register early.

I will be attending a Lucio Bubacco class the end of April in Murano and would love to have steel marvers made for the Lucio Burners while I am there, but I won't risk the cost if enough people do not sign up for the class.

So, please if you are planning on taking this class sign up before April 20th. That way I BELIEVE I can acquire both Lucio burners and steel marvers (made by R.Dona) for everyone for the class. As a side note, both burners and marvers will be available for purchase at the end of the class...*IF* enough people register early enough for the Pittsburgh Glass Center to make arrangements.
