Occasionally, I get e-mails from people that find my blog helpful. Here is one I just received from Thomas, a new puppet builder in Germany:
"First I'd like to thank you so much for sharing your puppet building "magic". Over here in Germany puppets are still quite often concerned as solely children's entertainment (or very rude entertainment in the comedy business) so there's not so much a puppet-building-society where you could learn how to build puppets.
Thanx to your blog I started building my first puppet and now I'm addicted :-). Just a few days ago I also set up a blog where I'm going to try to share my experiences for german (but not only german) puppet builders."
