It’s always a pleasure to hear from those using my creations. I received this letter following delivery of  a music stand that had been shown at the 2014 Sunapee Craft Fair in August:

Dear Mr. Moore, 

The music stand arrived in perfect condition this past week and is beautiful-- lovely curves, trim, smoothness, and overall finish and craftsmanship.  A piece of art.

I am a professional flutist, retired music professor, and bagpiper here in Memphis, and my wife and I were drawn to the stand at the fair.  The wood tones, exceptional style, workmanship, and functionality make this piece perfect for my needs and a wonderful addition to our home decor. 

Thank you to you for your hard work and creativity, and thank you to the friendly, enthusiastic, and talented members of the woodworkers guild. We are so glad to have attended the event to see the best crafts of New Hampshire.
