“For over 30 years, the nation’s most talented artisans have personally sold their contemporary crafts and fine art at Sugarloaf Craft Festivals. Rated as one of the top craft experiences in the country, last year more than 175,000 visitors attended Sugarloaf Craft Festivals and enjoyed the work of thousands of juried artisans. ” 



Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsman, which supports art education, craftsman, and small arts backed business owners, is sponsoring a fabulous show in Philadelphia at the historical Rittenhouse Square Park in Center City.  Luna Jaze will be on Walnut St.

booth 18.


Please support the Arts by your attendance, its such a civilized thing to do.

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything on my blog.  You think that after the children leave home, that you will have all of the time in the world to do the things that you want to do: wrong! Life seems to be busier than ever.

I had several successful shows this summer, and early fall, and want to thank you all for your wonderful support.  These events were followed by my daughters wedding, which was fabulous, but took up a lot of time.  The confluence of the wedding, lack of purse production, and a stray heath issue, seemed like a good time to take a fall and early winter respite. Regretfully, I will not be attending the Pennslyvania’s Gruild of Craftsmans show at Rittenhouse Square, in Philadelphia, this weekend, and I will not be attending the Surgarloaf show in Baltimore this month.

I have decided, during this lag time, to have the knee surgery that has been long over due, and greatly needed, and will be back in the late winter with a little kick in my step, just in time for my next show the ACC retail show in Baltimore in late February, which I am very excited about.  Stay tuned for new designs and information on the event.

Since I will be taking the fall and early winter off, I will be diligently working on new bags, and toward listing all of my current inventory on Etsy, which I am sooo bad at doing!  Lunajaze.etsy.com

Please feel free to email me or give me a ring for special orders, holiday gifts, or just to say Hi!  Lunajaze@gmail.com or 412.512.7468

I will miss you all and hope to see you in Baltimore in 2016!

warmest regards


Life can be so very busy, cant it?  I am not unlike anyone else, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do all that we want to do.

Since Luna Jaze is a one man (woman) show, my days tend to be long, but very satisfying.  As with all art, designs change and evolve as one works.  The more one works, the more things change: the evolution of Art.  This coming year I have concentrated more on design, bringing  each bag to its full potential in leather.  Designs are different, with different combinations of leather, and with more interesting accents.

My season is a busy one and I hope to catch you at one of my events.  Along with the show season, I will be teaching some leather workshops at Touchstone, in Farmington Pa.,  and at The Center for Contemporary Crafts, in Pittsburgh, Pa.  If my days weren’t busy enough, I’ve taken on the task of making my daughters wedding dress!  Its a good thing that I love to sew!
