Craft show returns for 10th year

Staff Reports

The 10th annual A Touch of Class craft show is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, at 1467 Glenwood Drive, Gardnerville.

More than 20 local crafters age 16 to 84 offer wares ranging from baby and pet items, to jewelry and jams, stocking stuffers and holiday decorations.

“It is always so exciting and impressive to see what these creative people come up with each year. Every time I walk through the show I see something I hadn’t seen before, and I live here,” said show organizer Sue Bennett.

Bennett holds the annual craft fair in her home. They move the furniture out of the front room and set up four large tents across the back deck.

“The focus of A Touch of Class is originality, fun, and service,” she said. “In this tough economy, we offer our guests decorations and unique, reasonably priced gifts that the recipient won’t see for half-price in Walmart the day after Christmas. We’re very proud of what we do.”

Free admission to the craft show. Visa and MasterCard accepted. A portion of the proceeds benefit Austin’s House. Information, 265-0800. See a selection of items at
