Greetings from Northern New York State!
I\’ve sewn since I was seven and have always been fond of the Regency Era due to my love of Jane Austen. Recently, due to new job responsiblities at the museum where I am the Grants Project Manager, I have become completely immersed in learning as much as I can about the fashions of the Regency / 1812 era.
One of my projects at the museum is a traveling 1812 era quilt show and exhibit that has been very successful and is currently touring Canada and the US. Occasionally I have the opportunity to travel with the quilt show to make presentations and dress in my Regency finery. This summer I had the chance to work alongside the ladies of Upper Canada Village (an Ontario living history museum) as an historic interpreter – it was an honour to work with them.
You can follow my 1812 quilt blog at: http://1812quiltchallenge.blogspot.com/
Although my blog focuses on quilts from the 1812 period I often have posts on fashions also and hope that you will look at some of my older posts so I can share what I have learned.

Has anyone seen the new American Girl Doll? Caroline Abbott was released in September and her stories are set in the 1812 era and she lives in Sackets Harbor, the same community where I work. Needless to say I will be busy sewing new Regency clothes for all my family. I recently purchased Janet Arnolds Book One and have nearly worn the ink off the cover!
I am pleased to have found so many others with similar interests on this board and look forward to becoming acquainted with all of you and learning from all of you.

Hi Lynette,  I’m kind of new here also, the quilt show sounds great, were you just in Ontario  or did you travel more of Canada?

The quilt show has been to Upper Canada Village and Fort Wellington in Ontario.  No plans yet on other provinces.

Fantastic.

Thanks glad you like it. I’ve just added a subscribe by email button. Blogger doesn’t seem to have a ‘follow’ button anymore?

Lynette, if the show goes to other Canadian provinces, will you flag us, please?  I would be very interested in visiting it.  

 

I forgot to check out that new American Girl Doll, I will have to do that…I am sure I have a little girl….who is not so little any more, who would enjoy seeing this one.
