Best Bets for Nov. 8-10 | The Bainbridge Blab

The going son here this weekend are few — but surprisingly diverse.

Seabold United Methodist Church (6894 Seabold Church Road) will host its annual bazaar from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Organizers of the yearly event say the bazaar is a great opportunity to shop for Thanksgiving table decorations, Christmas gifts for all, homemade baked goods, and more.

There will be an area for children to shop for gifts for their family members with items just a $1; Christmas wrapping station by donation; a photo booth with a professional photographer to help you — so bring your camera. Plus, Santa is expected to make a visit around 11 a.m.

The Seabold kitchen will begin serving lunch — clam chowder, chili, cinnamon rolls and drinks — beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Known for its delicious homemade pies, jams, and handmade knitted caps and scarfs, the bazaar will also feature driftwood wind chimes, glass wind chimes, soaps, quilts and vintage collectibles.

If you have questions, call the church office at 206-842-3622 during office hours, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art will host a one-day workshop guiding participants through a variety of methods that can be used to deepen into and develop creative ideas based on personal life experiences on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Drawing, writing, and sculpting in clay will be explored in “From Experience to Art,” suited for any skill level.

No experience necessary, all materials provided.

Tickets, $85 for members, $100 for non-members, can be purchased at

The instructor is Aisha Harrison.

Author and memoirist Jennifer Wilhoit will visit Eagle Harbor Book Company at 3 p.m. Sunday to discuss the book “Weaned Seals and Snowy Summits: Stories of Passion for Place and Everyday Nature,” which she co-authored with Stephen B. Jones.

The book is a collection of revelations that two Earth-loving souls have gleaned through nature exploration.

They are focused on how soil and birds, trees and rivers, rain, cycles, and science can inspire creativity and care for the land. The authors’ lives have taken different trails, yet they are aligned in promoting environmental stewardship through understanding, inspiration, and enjoyment of the ecological world. They share the goal of leaving the world a better place. It is by deep engagement with creatures and landscapes that one feels the interconnection with the web of all living beings and finds wisdom for everyday living.

Wilhoit is a “spiritual ecologist,” the founder of TEALarbor stories, and the author of books, articles, and blogs focused on “the inner/outer landscape.”

Jones is a passion-fueled, purpose-driven, retired four-time university president, lifelong nature enthusiast, environmental educator, Earth steward, author, speaker, land ethicist, husband, father, and grandfather.
