THE COMFORT & JOY SHOPPE
For your shopping pleasure a group of Bridgewater artisans have gathered together their handmade treasures for sale in our online Shoppe. We know you will find that perfect gift and maybe just a small token for yourselves. You deserve it!
Just a secret or two about our gifted artisans:
Jan Lewyn began knitting at age 10 during WWII. Her mother thought Jan should “do her part” and learn to knit sweaters. Several years ago Jan purchased a book on knitting Woodland Creatures, and she became enchanted. The crocodiles are her favorite thing to knit because they are “just so silly!”
Jamie Pfeiffer loves to play with complementary colors as she knits. Weaving and slip stitch are some of her favorite projects. “When you make things you put a little bit of yourself in the work. The Shoppe gives me an opportunity for others to enjoy my work. It’s a gift!”
Sharon Harvey developed a love for Stained Glass after moving to NY. Her most challenging piece is an old- fashioned Merry-Go-Round with Horses and Swan Chairs. After moving to Bridgewater she met a friend and mentor who introduced her to the art of Glass Fusing. Her best days are when her daughters and their children make their own intriguing creations in her studio. Her fused Glass Trees are her newest whimsical pieces.
Annie Smith is a theater teacher for the Match Charter High School in Boston. Annie has loved knitting, painting, calligraphy and jewelry making since high school. During the pandemic she has had more opportunity for her creative pursuits. “I wanted to do something to help my church’s Christmas Shoppe. The online shoppe was a fabulous idea.”
