Handmade Holiday Faire is December 1 at Sacramento Country Day School
Event Combines Holiday Craft Making and Artisan Show
Children love all the festivities surrounding the holiday season. They love the presents, the carols, and the yummy foods, but they also want to be in on the gift giving. Each year, parents search for ways to celebrate the holidays with meaning while accomplishing all the “to-‐dos” the season entails.
On Saturday, December 1, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Sacramento Country Day School Parents’ Association will hold a Handmade Holiday Faire at the Country Day School gymnasium that will combine imaginative kid crafts with artisan holiday shopping for grown ups.
The event will feature over 15 crafts for kids to make, including cupcake ornaments, custom cookie makings, vintage paper holiday trees, superhero candy pops, tile trivets, and custom leather bookmarks. Featured artisans include painters, watercolorists, photographers, altered-‐art jewelers, beaded jewelers, handbag designers, sculptors, and more. A raffle featuring artisan-‐donated items is also slated. Food and beverages are available for sale at the Candy Corn Café, making it a perfect indoor destination on a winter day.
This year, the event features craft tables to raise funds for Country Day’s sister school in Rwanda, the Rulindo School, and Breakthrough Sacramento.
Breakthrough Sacramento is a public-‐private partnership providing year-‐round, tuition-‐free, college preparatory program for academically motivated students from under-‐resourced schools in the Sacramento-‐area. Breakthrough is headquartered at Country Day School and is an integral part of the Country Day community.
The Handmade Holiday Faire is open to the public. For more information and a list of local handmade vendors visit www.http://www.saccds.org/about-‐ scds/community/parents or call 481-‐8811.
