The Newsletter, also called Tech Tips is a weekly e-mail for subscribers.  It contains a short time saving glass work tip, links to recent tutorials, and a schedule of classes.  Newsletter readers are the first to know about classes and events, including discounts and specials and new products.

The Tech Tip newsletter is free, just put your name and e-mail in the box, and you can unsubscribe anytime.  I use Aweber e-mail software because they have a great reputation for security and privacy.
