Jeff Hinchliffe's "30 Minutes of Magic"

From the Browser's Den of Magic Newsletter:
Here's a note from none other than Mr. Michael Close about our new project:
As we all struggle through these stressful times, here’s a suggestion to help navigate the chaos: use your new-found time to do something good for yourself and to do something good for someone else.

The Browsers Den magic shop is offering you a way to do just that. Jeff Hinchliffe (young Jeff to all of you) will be offering a weekly, thirty-minute, online magic class. Jeff will not only discuss the “nuts-and-bolts” how of each routine covered, he will also discuss the “why,” which makes me happy because this has been the focus of my published work over the last thirty years.

So, for one reasonable price, you will be able to accomplish two laudable things: 1) you’ll learn some great tricks and improve your magic; 2) you’ll help out The Browsers Den, an iconic part of the magic landscape of the GTA.

Everyone is going to be challenged by this unprecedented global situation; for small businesses, in particular, it will be exceptionally precarious. Take this opportunity to do some good for yourself and someone else.

My name is Michael Close, and I approve this message.

Now stay away from me.
Michael Close

So to you our Loyal Denizens we are very excited to introduce...

30 Minutes of Magic!

30 Minutes of Magic will be a weekly DOWNLOADABLE video lesson taught by Jeff Hinchliffe (henceforth known as Young Jeff).
