Don’t stay home listening to a sporting match that you don’t really care about this year, come to the library where you can join your friends sewing your next Regency Costume (or anything you like). Many of the members will wear their day Regency dresses just for fun… after all it will be a SUPER day.

WRS is returning to the site of our very first function! We will have a delightful tea plus our General Meeting. Enjoy the lovely gardens and a substantial repast in this quaint Victorian home while our President Ruth regales you with WRS information and news. We will also have a Regency game to play with prizes awarded. The chef at the Secret Garden is award winning and we guarantee you will not go home hungry. They also have a gift shop with teas and teacups plus other tempting wares.

Join the Washington Regency Society at our annual
Lakewold Gardens — 12317 Gravelly Lake Dr SW, Lakewood, Washington 98499
Each member pays their own entrance into the garden. Many wear Regency costumes but this is often an event that first time attendees “try out” the group to see what it is like. Please feel welcome wearing any picnicking clothing you are comfortable wearing but don’t be surprised to see elegant ladies in bonnets and parasols or dashing gentlemen in tailcoats playing at croquet or graces. We generally share our picnics in a pot luck style but just like costumes, that is not required – you may keep your picnic to yourselves or join in the merry feast. We will create a sign up list for potluck as we get closer to the event. All are welcome.
The Tall Ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain will be docked in Port Orchard on August 17 and 18.
This exciting event is A la Carte . We will have a Picnic (place to be determined), the Evening Sail on The Lady Washington 6-8 pm ( purchase your own tickets) at www.historicalseaport.org. After the sail we can meet at a nearby restaurant to have dinner or snacks. After dinner some members will find lodging near by and some want to camp out. We can meet in the morning for breakfast antique shopping, strolling the down town or park or visit a museum.(Also to be determined.) We will post the details as soon as we make further arrangements but purchase your tickets for the sailing before the boat fills up with “landlubbers”!
Join us for a sewing day!
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!
