Day 2 at the Stone Harbor Arts & Craft Show - tent #4 ... See MoreSee Less
I was at the craft show yesterday and want to give major props to the young man who was my salesperson. I don't know his name but he was able to speak about all of the projects and crafters for life professionally. I came away with cards, a hat and coasters! As an Autism specialist who works in secondary transition, I was very impressed with him and the program,. Keep up the good work. Coming to the craft show was a great place to market and sell product.
We will be back at the Stone Harbor Arts & Crafts show tomorrow and Sunday! This year we will be in the big tent closest the rec center. In addition to our standard selection of amazing products we will have religious prints and cards by Sean and semi-precious stone jewelry by Bill Including bracelets, necklaces and NOW anklets! See you there! ... See MoreSee Less
Is the jewelry going to be sold at Fall craft shows?
One step closer!We're going to the chapel. 🎶
Celebrating our first big step!
Our offer was accepted!
And here it is the chapel in Green Lane across from the firehouse.
Lots of things that still have to fall in place, but for right now...
(A little ironic that we're celebrating with wine. But, it is red. It's kind of in keeping with the fact that our offer on a church was accepted on a Sunday. And it The Dreaming Tree wine which sums up how we feel right now.)
Thank you for all the support, prayers, and good vibes sent! 💕 We are humbled and very, very appreciative. 💕 ... See MoreSee Less

I feel very privileged that Maggie Whiet - Autism Love: Mosaics & Brewing gave me a preview from an amazing new company that is about to launch called Perkiomen Valley Brewery. This craft Imperial IPA was brewed by a young man with autism and his parents. I can't wait for them to get their brewery up and running because this was a fantastic IPA! Let's all push Maggie and her family to move as quickly as possible so we all can enjoy their true talents. ... See MoreSee Less
love it....... I need that beer at the shop.... We need a beer tasting night...
Very cool! I will have to let my son know who loves craft beers!
Is this in the Collegeville area? Would love to help spread the word if it is in my neck of the woods!
Jenn Casper- maybe this can be added to the WPH IPA menu??
We've just made a facebook page if anyone would like to follow along as we go through all the trials and tribulations of getting our nano-brewery going. :) www.facebook.com/perkiomenvalleybrewery/
