Blaine Senior Center to host new fall craft show


The Blaine Senior Center is hosting a Fall Harvest Craft Show, featuring over 25 vendors from across Whatcom County.

The craft show will take place on Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. At the show, local vendors will be selling a wide variety of handmade products including preserved flowers, lotions, metalwork, woodwork, knitted goods, silk scarves and jewelry.

The event will also feature a bake sale. Cookies, breads and other baked goods will be sold by the pound, so that people can pick out what they want. Lunch will also be available each day, at a cost of $7 for anyone under 60; for those over 60, the suggested donation is $5, with proceeds benefitting the Meals on Wheels and More program.

According to senior center director Kathy Sitker, the event is new and replaces the Christmas Bazaar, which will not be taking place this year. “We were getting vendors, but there just seemed to be a lot going on at that time of year with the holidays,” she said. “So we decided to do something different. It never hurts to try something new.”
