How I got started in Glassblowing

I’ve told the story in my CMOG Oral/Video History of Glass interview, so while cleaning up some old papers I came across the original invoice from my very first MYO (Make Your Own) Paperweight session at Wheaton Village (now Wheaton Arts) — dated July 10, 2000!

My wife and I were driving back from the New Jersey State Barbecue (BBQ) Festival in Wildwood NJ the weekend of July 8-9, 2000 and she said that she had read about Wheaton Village and wanted to stop. I wanted to get home and get back to work, but wives can be persuasive, and we stopped there, and she could not pull me away from the Hot Shop demos, I was fascinated, and hooked!

Here is my original Make Your Own Paperweight (MYOP) Invoice from Wheaton Village, and the start of my adventure in Glass Art: - How Tony Patti got started in Glass Art - Invoice dated July 10, 2000 from Wheaton Village (now WheatonArts)
