    Wondering if Marise Cherin (jewelry) and/or Jane Markham (woodwork) will be at Artisans Fair this year.

    They have been regulars for years but not pictured above.

    Phone 530-274-7481 if possible

      Hi Sue,
      Marise and Jane are not at the Festival this year. Hope you’re able to come by the Foundry today or tomorrow to see this year’s wonderful artists!
