Tahoe City's Holiday Craft Bazaar touts the return to simpler times and handmade items.

TAHOE CITY, Calif. and#8212; Saturday, Nov. 20, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. the Tahoe City PUD Parks and Recreation Department will be holding their annual Holiday Craft Bazaar at the Rideout Community Center, 740 Timberland Lane, Tahoe City.

Crafting is an ancient practice perhaps as old as human civilization itself. Archeologists have conducted excavations in different parts of the world and discovered various handmade objects of craft from different ages. Crafting reflects the culture, tradition and history of place and lives long ago. Historically, every creation was a piece of craft. Every object was made with hands, using physical human skills, creativity and patience.

With so many electronic distractions these days, it appears crafting is rapidly becoming a lost art. Fewer and fewer people are experiencing crochet, cross-stitch or quilting, for example. On the other hand computers and the digital age have given a new flavor to crafting. People are able to experience a great scrapbook experience with digital imaging and printing technologies.

Our particular craft bazaar will feature; fused glass, stained glass, furniture, jewelry, home decor, holiday items, tie dye and much much more! The entry is free so come and find that special gift for the holidays and support your local artisans in this fun and exciting holiday event.
