Off to England!

Jane AustenI’m headed to the UK to lead this year’s Historical Fashion Tour. My group will be in Bath for the opening of the Jane Austen Festival, then in Winchester and London. You can follow us over on my Facebook page, where I’ll be posting pictures and insights from the trip.

Come along with us for a virtual tour of England and all things Jane and historical fashion!

Closing out the 2013 Tour list!

BathCostumesWell, the little time I’ve had online has been spent working on this year’s tour instead of formatting pictures from last year’s! Time is flying by far too quickly. In less than seven months, we’ll be in Bath, Winchester, Chawton, and London, touring Jane Austen sites and viewing historical fashions up close.

The guest list filled up very quickly, but I’ve had a few drop-outs that have left a couple of open slots. However, I’ve got to give my final numbers to our hotels and museums so we can wrap up all our tickets and such as soon as possible. That means I’m going to close the group next Monday (March 25). If you would like to join us, please let me know!

This is going to be one fantastic tour, as we’re celebrating the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice and have the opportunity to attend a full costumed Regency ball in Bath (including supper, card tables, and all the trimmings!). We’ve got more Jane Austen stops on this trip than on any trip for the past four years, so if you’re an Austenite, this is the tour for you!

Let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll be happy to help.

Off to the UK in September!

The 2012 Historical Costume Tour begins on September 9, and we’re so excited about the wonderful itinerary! I’ll be blogging during the tour as time permits, so check back here to see what our group gets to enjoy–including an original 19th-century cotton mill, two famous historical costume collections, and tapestries created by Bess of Hardwick and Mary, Queen of Scots!
