Of course, “man’s best friend” should be represented by a vendor at our Anniversary event and so we look forward to having Abby’s Doggone Good Gourmet Cookies join us! Created in 1993 and inspired by the need for a preservative and filler free dog treat, the gourmet cookies were named after Abby, a special canine friend. The company began in Nuangola, PA and in 2012 Abby’s moved to Dalmatia, PA.  In spite of the move and change in their look, all of their original recipes remain the same and Abby’s continues to only use wholesome quality ingredients from the USA. Check out their website for more info and to see the treats they offer!https://www.dogsloveabbys.com/ And, of course, don’t forget to stop by the Juniata Valley Winery on August 11th or 12th to pick up some treats for your four legged friend.

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!

Artifacts N Relics joining The Juniata Valley Winery Anniversary Event on Aug 12 Meet the artist: Artifacts N Relics
We look forward to welcoming central Pennsylvania based Artifacts N Relics to our Anniversary event.  Owner and artist Mike is a former student of graphic design at Berks Technical Institute and believes that art can  provide a small escape from the real world and can make us smile, even if just for a minute.  Mike embraced his artistic side as a child and by fine-tuning his techniques and continuing to always learn new skills, he has been able to  turn his passion into a career.  His art is inspired by his raw materials: vintage and forgotten items such as coins, watch parts, ink pen nibs, and even bullet casings. He breathes new life into these often cast aside bits and pieces by turning them into one of a kind  jewelry and accoutrements. With a website that boasts collections such as “Ancient, Steampunk, Bullet Casing Jewelry, and Vintage” Artifacts N Relics is definit…

Vendor/Artisan at the 5th Annual Anniversary Event at The Juniata Valley Winery Aug 12th

"Assembled wood sculptures. All made from reclaimed wood"
We are excited to introduce a new participant to our Anniversary event. Juniata County native Connie Bowsman is a self taught artist who specializes in wood sculpture and enjoys exploring new styles and mediums.  For her sculptures, the majority of her raw materials are gathered from fallen trees and branches that she gathers from the forest and riverside.
"I find my inspiration from seeing beauty in the broken. Pretty things have dents and scratches, too. Foraged wood has amazing texture. Throw in the upcycling element, and it's a win-win situation!" An eclectic blend of human and animal figures, Connie’s designs are as exquisite as they are unique.  In addition to her reclaimed wood pieces, Connie will bring along a sampling of her original canvas paintings, pebble art, and handcrafted jewelry.  Examples of Connie’s ar…
