Bio:  Lynne Kropinak is a self-taught jewelry maker, knitting addict, and enthusiast of all things crafty. She is the creative pixie behind many handmades that pop up like toadstools all over Western PA. Her work is inspired and constructed with found and salvaged materials: scraps of paper, gemstones and leaves, polymer clay, paint, recycled trinkets, conversations heard in line at the grocery store, and other things too good to throw away. She has been making and selling crafts for over 25 years and delights in sharing skills and inspiration with other crafters.

Artists Bio:
Jennie Stephens is a Teaching Artist who lives and works in Pittsburgh. She has a Bachelors in Studio Art (Painting and Printmaking) and Art History, and a Masters in Archival, Museum, and Editing Studies. Jennie has been teaching in the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh for the past 9 years, as well as the last year and a half with Gateway to the Arts.
Though Jennie still paints, creates fiber art and mosaics, she was bitten by the glass bug while attending a workshop at the Pittsburgh Glass Center and has never looked back! It was less than a year before Jennie bought her own kiln, and turned her fascination with glass into something more!
