Washington Regency Society  Spring Retreat at Tokeland

April 28 – April 30, 2017


Many members of the Washington Regency Society met at the Tokeland Hotel, a much loved destination, for a 2 night retreat near the Washington Coast on Willipa Bay!  All meals were provided!

We relaxed with hand sewing, resting, conversing, playing games and reading.  The weather was wet and chilly so we stayed inside most of the time.

WRS Sari Safari to Kent, Washington

Saturday, May 30, 2015  1-4 p.m.


In Kent, Washington there are a number of shops selling saris and other garments and textiles from the Indian Subcontinent – many of these textiles are appropriate to use in re-creating Regency Era clothing.

The  Kent Sari Safari was a huge success and will probably happen again!

Many of you have heard of the legendary British Columbia Sari Safari hosted by the Beyond Reality Costumers Guild in February but we wondered if we could “hunt” a little closer to home.
