Bessett Studio Fire

Harry and Wendt Bessett's studio burned out on Dec 29th. If any of you know them, you'd know what incredibly generous people they are. Anyone wanting to contribute to the gofundme, here's the link

It indeed is an option. Craftweb is one as well. Hang around long enough and learn about karma.

It seems in the world we run in with our shops and lives around glass we are each about one unlucky spark away from a bad turn of fate.

I hope, like many times before, our resources here can help another one of us. Please keep us updated I hope they come out of this stronger.

This place as always continues to surprise me.

having been burned to the ground i can say the fire was the best thing that happened to me. i got a whole new life in a great place with a huge new studio. got a lot of help and donations from friends to help rebuild. cerf came thru with their maximum loan which i actually paid off on time. glad i had decent insurance and all the permits on that studio so i had no prblem collecting on the fire. it's a bitch for a while but don't give up on your dream. i remember jeff lindsay rebuilt all my dino tools and shears at no charge. i seem to only buy cutting edge tools now. i'm forever grateful to you guys.

is there an someone taking donations?where?
