It’s almost here!

by in 2010 Tour

Hard to believe the 2010 Tour is already upon us. The year has just flown by! We are so excited about this year’s tour. We have a group of 15 lovely ladies going along, and I’m really excited that my dear mother will be with us this trip. We haven’t been in England together since 1988, so this will be a wonderful memory-maker. :)

Stay tuned for blog posts about the trip, as time permits (and when I have WiFi access!). I’ll be taking all the pictures myself this time (a rather daunting prospect!), so I’ll have to get the hang of using this new camera and formatting photos.

We’re going to be in London, Wiltshire, Hereford, Exeter, and Somersetshire this year, seeing historical garments from world-renowned collections and touring beautiful manor houses at the same time. I’m excited to meet curators who specialize in areas that are new to me (lacemaking, anyone?), and Suzi Clarke will be along as before to guide us through all these delights. Hope you’ll tag along here for all the fun!

    Lacemaking! Now that sounds exciting. I’ve dabbed a bit into bobbin-lace making and want to continue – it’s a tradition in my family, my grandma does it and her grandma did.

    Oh Jennie,

    the trip sounds wonderful. I sure wish I was a mouse in your pocket when you go. Am looking forward to the blog. Have fun, be safe, and God Bless you all. I’ll be praying for you.

    Blessings, Janet W.

    I wish I could have gone with you! I long to visit places where my ancestors came from! England is so beautiful too! Plus I would get to dress up like Jane Austen. I’m really hoping next year I can go! When is it next year?

      Hi, Tiffany! No dates set for a 2011 tour. It will depend on our own family’s schedule, so I’ll have to wait and see. I’ll post about it when/if we do schedule it! Thanks!
