Paper Vineyard is presenting its first Home Spun Holidays at the Vineyard event. This is a three-day event that includes six classes, four meals and one crop with a dessert bar. There are prize drawings through out the weekend and joyous memories as you create books, cards, ornaments and more to capture your 2010 Christmas moments. There is a daily class designed and taught by Stephanie Ackerman. In addition, Glitz Girl Designs will be here and two local artists Jean Bradsher and Dana Edwards. The guest designers/instructors all bring their own unique and strikingly beautiful projects to life for you. This is a great way to treat yourself before the drama and work of the holiday season take over our day-to-day lives.

Designed and taught by Stephanie Ackerman
Class is 1p-5p, Class Fee $65
Prepare to spend a few hours assembling, cutting, sanding and glittering this beautiful 25 page book to document the 25 days prior to Christmas. It is okay that we be a few days into December when we create this project. As we all know, it is very easy to get frustrated, flustered let alone fatigued from the things we need to do (and the things we think we need to do) and unfortunate, sometimes, in all the hustle bustle, we forget to recognize and enjoy all of the fun and festive events that go on during the holidays.

Crop with Stephanie Ackerman
Crop is 5pm - 12am, Crop Fee $15
Stephanie is going to stay and play with us!!! A prize drawing every half an hour and a dessert bar at 10:30pm. Bring your own projects to finish more items on your holiday to-do list.
