 Washington Regency Society



Sunday, May 5, 2019  1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Queen Anne Library Meeting Room,  Seattle

 WRS is pleased to announce our second General Meeting since becoming a non-profit.  We are combining this meeting with a sewing day, if you so choose, however we are having the meeting for our membership and public first.

The first part of our meeting will be our business meeting with our President’s Report, Treasurer’s Report, and descriptions of how our members can get involved.  The second part of the meeting is an educational presentation on fashions during the Regency period.  This is intended to help newer (or current) members obtain the necessary information to start their own wardrobes.  We will also have a program on the Regency fashions at the Museum of Fashion History in Bath England.  Two of our members were able to inspect some of the fashions in their collection and will be sharing details and photos of those garments.

Finally, we will have a workshop for those that would like help with their projects, or just gain information from others on how to get started, or just work on their projects in the company of like minded individuals.  This is always inspiring to see what others are doing.

This event has no charge, it is open to all.  Queen Anne Library   is located at 400 W Garfield St in Seattle and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Join the Washington Regency Society at our annual

Picnic at Lakewold Gardens


Saturday July 21, 2019

10 am to 4 pm

Lakewold Gardens —  12317 Gravelly Lake Dr SW, Lakewood, Washington 98499

            We are pleased to announce that WRS will be returning to Lakewold Gardens again this summer for our annual picnic.  This is a great event to come to if you are just starting out with us or have been every year.  We are very casual, bring a picnic dish to share for our potluck, or bring your own picnic basket, chairs, and table.  We will have the use of the veranda with it’s tables under the wisteria vines.  This is also where we set up our potluck picnic.

Last year’s picnic was incredible; we actually ran out of room on our table and ended up covering 3 tables with delicious offerings.  To help us organize this a bit this year, we are opting for the following:  Attendees with last names starting in A to G will bring salads or fruit, H to O will bring sandwiches or savories, and P to Z will bring sweets like cakes, cookies, or tarts.  Beverages are up to the individual.

Lakewold Gardens is a Historic Estate on Gravelly Lake in Lakewood.  It is run by a non-profit, Friends of Lakewold.  I will give a talk on the history of the gardens and the family that owned this lovely property.  It is truly a gem of a garden, with a lovely Georgian style home.  There are walks through the woods and a large lawn area for relaxing or participating in Regency games.

No need to sign up for this event.  There is a cost to the gardens that is payable on your arrival.  We get a group rate of $7 per person, just be sure and mention that you are with WRS upon your arrival.  As always, costumes are admired but not required.
