WOWZERS!  There is no other word to describe the first week of the shop, than “Wowzers”!!  The response and support has been incredible!  I’m not gonna lie, I really didn’t expect many people to come in yet; I thought the numbers might have increased once the workshops got up and running, but oh no…you saw… Continue reading Fabricate: Week 1
