Our 2017 Meeting Dates
Austen Extra: A Special Event
Saturday, August 26: Regency Styling Party
12 PM – 4:30 PM
Pacifica Historical Society
1850 Francisco Blvd., Pacifica, CA 94044
We have a day of exciting fashion fun planned. Whether you’re attending the AGM or not, we want to make sure you’re ready to be swept off in style at the next ball!
Come early with Regency attire you want to sale or swap, or stop by if you’re in need of some new accoutrements.
After the swap ‘n sale we’ll have a crafternoon, so bring any projects you want help with. Non-Regency sewing projects are welcome in case you want to sew and chat.
If you can put together an ensemble from the items you acquire you may be awarded a prize!
$5 admission. More details to come for event.
