Please join us for our annual PICNIC at beautiful Lakewold Gardens. The Gardens are located in Lakewood and are part of an historical estate on Gravelly Lake. The picnic is potluck, and we would like to make this a Regency picnic.
We make a day of it, please plan on arriving before noon. Entrance fee to Lakewold Gardens is about $10 and individuals will pay their own fee as they enter the garden.

Hunting with Horses and Hounds Event
The Woodbrook Hunt Club, www.woodbrookhuntclub.com located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, has graciously extended an invitation to the Washington Regency Society members to observe one of their traditional hunting events. A Saturday in October or November is likely, so now is the time to start sewing your riding habit if you don’t already have one. Please check out the Pinterest site at www.pinterest.com/WARegency for engravings of period attire. More information about the event including the Hunt Breakfast will be forthcoming but most of us need to start sewing now! For those new to “the hunt”, no foxes or other animals are hunted, hurt or killed in this event!
More details are being worked out – our Twelfth Night Ball in 2018 was such a success that we are trying for a larger location in 2019.
We have had a lot of fun and made a lot of progress on projects when we meet up and help each other with our costuming. We are negotiating with spaces and plan more of these “sewing days” this year — follow this space for more information soon!

This workshop is full but keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for additional workshops.
On May 20th, we will hold our first sewing workshop at Joann Fabrics in Southcenter. The workshop is from 2 to 6 PM. Several of our members will be present to assist you in getting started with that all important Regency Gown. One of our favorite patterns is the Laughing Moon Ladies’ Round and Trained Gown c. 1800-1810. This pattern has the bib or apron front and has many variations in sleeves and trains. We have had good luck with this pattern and have found it very versatile and flattering to many body types.
During the class we will show various examples of this gown along with advice on how it is made and options you might want to consider. We will also give you information on where to find appropriate Regency like fabrics and other supplies.
