WRS often holds sewing get-togethers at libraries and other sites but this year all those favorite sites are closed due to the Corona virus distancing guidelines. The leadership group wants to make sure that folks stay in communication with each other and have a chance to ask questions of some of our more experienced members, so we are setting up a sewing meet up via the Zoom platform.
We can gather in our Morning dress or “dishabille” (or not in costume if you prefer but please keep it “G rated”.) Bring along your hand sewing or set up your computer next to your sewing machine – there are no rules other than our standing rule “Be excellent to each other”.
At 10 am our session will open, and it will continue until 1 pm. There is no fee for members but there will be a five-dollar fee for non-WRS members. Use this link to purchase just this one meeting access or purchase a membership on the membership page. The link to connect will be sent to paid up members on Saturday June 27, 2020.
You don’t have to sew Regency era things; in fact you don’t have to sew at all. You can just come and visit with your WRS buddies. If it gets really crowded and noisy, we can open breakout rooms for folks to discuss things in smaller groups then come back together later.
Let’s do this! A little virus won’t keep us from having fun and being creative!
Picnic and Performances
Because we can not guarantee what phase of reopening our State (due to COVID-19) will be at on July 25th we have decided to take our Summer Picnic Virtual! We all take to our own gardens with our own picnics, where we will meet virtually Via ZOOM !
Set up your tea table, don your Regency Sunday best, re-trim your bonnet!
Members will be sent an invitation for Zoom by email.
Of course Costumes admired but not required!
Let us stroll in the Kubota Garden! This distinctive Northwest/Japanese 20 acre Garden is alive with blooms around this time of year. You may bring a picnic for after the stroll .
Wear your best Regency walking outfit, sturdy walking shoes for gravel paths, parasols and bonnets! FREE ! (There is no admission fee for this garden.)
