Staff Reports

Back again for its 11th year is ‘A Touch of Class’ craft show, featuring 25 local crafters (many who are showing for the first time). A Touch of Class offers shoppers a different shopping experience with an open, no booth format. Located in the home of Sue and Bill Bennett, 1467 Glenwood Drive in Gardnerville off Riverview and Highway 395 south, you will find a different theme in each room and the large tented deck.

Featuring hundreds of decorations, gifts, toys, children’s items, feather hair ornaments, ceramics, cards, stained glass and much more. Free admission, hourly door prizes, Visa and Mastercard accepted. Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Organizers encourage shoppers to come early because products are not mass produced.

A Touch of Class began as a way to meet people when the Bennetts first moved to Nevada. It has grown to a large show.

It is also a family affair, with their daughter and granddaughter coming in from Spokane, Wash., to help for the last seven years. Kalah, their granddaughter, now 18, puts in for that time off from her job a year in advance.

“It’s just a fun place to be, and we are very proud of our reputation as a quality show that is strictly juried and fairly priced,” Sue said.

A Touch of Class is also a proud supporter of Austin’s House/Carson Valley Children’s Center. A percentage of all sales is donated to help children in Carson Valley who need a safe place to stay. Visit for information.
