DOOR PRIZES EVERY HOUR!
Vendor Ronnie Leavitt of Longmeadow will sell fancy-to-funky, hand-made beaded jewelry. “I love looking at jewelry others wear in other countries, so I started purchasing beads when I traveled to places such as Africa, India, Nepal and Europe,” says Leavitt, who is a retired physical therapist and professor from the University of Connecticut. Making jewelry out of beads has been her hobby since the 1970s. “I love the various colors and textures. If you need jewelry to match a certain outfit, I can make it for you.”
Come meet Ronnie and the other artisans at the First Annual JCC Artisan Festival, a program of the Arts and Culture movement at the Springfield JCC. Convenient parking (use Converse Street entrance) and free admission. For more information, contact Carlin Trietsch at the Springfield JCC, (413) 739-4715, extension 329.
