AAE Glass Appreciates Your Patience

Glass Art Will Change When You Walk Through These Doors

AAE Glass would like to update you on our progress and what we are doing to better serve you.  First off, a huge thank you to everyone who has wished us well and supported us as we have grown at a tremendous pace these past few years.  We are here because of you and it is you we are here to serve.  It goes to show that customer service, fresh knowledge and innovative products are in high demand.  Myself and Tanya always strive to answer your questions personally, in a timely manner and we ask you to bear with us as we spend the next 2 weeks opening our studio and hosting anyone and everyone who would like to stop by and say hello.  We would be happy to spend time with you while you pick our brains and we pick yours.

While we are opening the studio, we ask that all emailers be patient for answers as our time is being spent making the best teaching facility available to the glass community.  Not only are we offering glass classes, but we are going to offer classes for artists of all mediums.  Canvas painting, faux finishing, metal work and beyond!  When you see the artwork on the walls of our studio, your jaw is going to drop, it is that simple.  It is my job to convince our muralists to teach classes in our studio and I won't take no for an answer.  They are so talented and have such a passion for what they do that it would be criminal for them not to share it with those who want to learn.  I am going to make this happen for anyone who wants to learn what they have to offer.  This I promise!

We have been working tirelessly the past few weeks to make sure we have the best equipment available for you to use as we expand our Extreme Fusing series of classes.  We have had 100 sign ups for beginner classes, X1 and X2 in 3 weeks time!  This is all Tanya Veit!  If you have had the opportunity to take a workshop with Tanya, you know what kind of energy and passion she brings every single day.  She could be teaching algebra and people would want to come back for more!  She blows my mind sometimes...Most of the time!

The Extreme series of glass classes is here to stay and Cape Coral, Florida is the place to learn.  We will make sure you have the best environment to learn and expand your glass knowledge, but as important, we are going to make sure you have fun doing it.  Tanya, Mark, John and Molly are going to make sure you enjoy yourself in Cape Coral.  If you are bringing a significant other who isn't interested in glass, Mark will take them golfing, to the beach, to a local watering hole to watch football or anything else...within reason.  One thing this group does is have fun, no matter the circumstance.  We are so excited to offer our knowledge, expertise and anything else you ask of us.  We are full of energy and are here to serve.  As I said before, this is just the beginning.  We have no preconceived notions when it comes to this business.  We are fresh, going to do things professionally, have fun doing it and let the chips fall where they may.  If our students are happy, we are happy. 

Again, thank you to each and every person who has helped spread the word about AAE Glass!  We have built this business through grass roots effort, word of mouth, hard work and following through on what we say we are going to do.  Simply the same qualities I look for in anyone I am going to do business with.

We look forward to seeing you at the grand opening on Saturday November 19th at AAE Glass Studio located at 1228 Lafayette St. Cape Coral, Fl 33904 from 5-9pm.  Live music, food provided by chef John and adult beverages.  If you can't make it then, we will see you in an Extreme glass fusing workshop or anytime you find time to walk through our doors.  If my excitement doesn't resonate in this blog post, then come meet us in person, you won't be disappointed.
