Delmar Open Studios

Visit the studios of Liz Vigoda and Loretta Fontaine this weekend and get a behind the scenes look at how they create their jewelry and pottery. They will be offering studio tours, demonstrations, refreshments, and a wide array of new and special sale pieces. (Sounds like a good place to pick up some holiday gifts). Liz also offers classes for adults and homeschoolers.

  1. Thank you for this nice post on our Delmar Open Studios. It's Saturday night and I'm recovering from eating too many of my own cookies and cakes. It's too tempting to be my studio all day when it's full of goodies.

    If you come by tomorrow, Gorilla vs. Rex, identify yourself! As a Mom with three kids, I'm a big fan of this blog.

    Best Wishes,

  2. Hi Loretta,

    Thanks so much for your message. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it because I had the plague. I'm really looking forward to getting over there soon, though. Your jewelry is absolutely beautiful.

    Hope the weekend was a success and hope to meet you soon. (Thanks for reading!)
