Welcome Savon du Jardin to the Juniata Valley Winery's 5th Anniversary Event!


Soap...it is an integral part of our lives. For Deb Beisel, her interest was piqued when her husband, an elementary school teacher, was teaching his class about soap making.  Deb began making soap and soon found a way to combine her new hobby with her love of the outdoors and gardening.  Interested in developing natural soaps that are luxurious without synthetic ingredients, Deb has developed a passion for researching and creating new products. The fun and  joy she experiences in transforming raw material into beautiful products has also led her to add lotions and other bath products to her inventory. Her company’s name, “Savon du Jardin” is a tribute to her French mother and grandmother and a nod to her love of gardening, which they also shared.  Deb is an active member of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild and has also attended the Pittsburgh Soapmakers Conference.  Along with her husband, this mom…

Meet Norma Dively, a.k.a. Crafty Nana As a new grandmother and avid hobbyist, Norma Dively adopted the nickname of the Crafty Nana. Although her basement was already being overtaken by her hobbies, in 2009,  Norma’s curiosity led to her to go check out a gourd festival at a local church. Intrigued by what she found, Norma was soon hooked on gourd crafts. She joined the Pennsylvania Gourd Society and the rest is history! Combining her interests in birding and gourd projects, the Crafty Nana focuses on making birdhouses and employing new techniques she’s learned through her PAGS membership.  She describes the majority of her birdhouses as utilitarian, but sometimes she is inspired to make a more creative design, such as a goose, duck or swan.   Please join us at the JVW Anniversary celebration on August 12 to meet the Crafty Nana and see her spectacular gourd creations!
