Have you ever had something wonderful thrown in your lap all of the sudden, a God-given opportunity that you never even thought about?
I was contacted about 2 weeks ago about having a booth for Regency attire at the Jane Austen Society's annual convention. And, since it happens to be this October in Fort Worth, TX, I said yes! The theme this year is 'Sense and Sensibility'. They are having some great workshops/speakers on the topic! I probably won't get to attend most of them, since I will be mainly in the Emporium, but I do hope to attend the ball!
I'm getting so excited already planning what is going to be in my booth, and how I will display it all. For starters, I'll have lots of ready made Regency dresses, corsets, chemises, spencers, etc. for sale of various sizes, then my Regency Dress Designer Kits, and a few other ideas that are currently in the works. I've definately got my sewing cut out for me this summer.....(no pun intended....:^)
Rebecca will be sharing the booth with me, and we are thrilled to have the chance to wear Regency attire for so many days in a row!! This also fits in perfectly with the Double Period Project 2011 contest. Hope to have my contest dress done by the convention!
I would love to hear any ideas you girls might have for the booth! Also, if anyone is going to be at the convention, do let me know, I would love to meet you!
