Hello My name is Renee Wright and I am moving to the Lapine Area. I have been a costumer for 30 years primarily in the Society for Creative Anachronism. I especially love the costuming of the 16th century. Well that is not really true. I love historical costuming and just recently I have been working toward the Regency period. I love the style and grace and manners of that time period. By training I am an Archaeologist, hence as you can see I love history. I also love to teach costuming, embroidery spinning weaving and a whole host of other things. When I decided to move I looked up the Bend Lapine area for a Regency chapter because I really want to get involved. Well now that is an understatement, I find that I am wgike heartedly going to get involved and work on kick starting the group in my home area. It will be a slow start I have to move, which will happen on the 30th of September then I will have to get a bit settled.
I am hoping to have regular sewing circles and then work toward teas and Picnics. I just took on this mantle today so I have to think of further things but not quite yet. Frankly I cannot wait to make Regency gowns, and underthings, bonnets ( I really want to make bonnets) and all the accesories that a proper lady of the time period. I look foreward to the new challenges. I also look foreword to making new friends of like interests.
