But wait! There’s MORE! Coming up in March, our Proprietor will be attending the Jane Austen Society of Northern California’s Mini-Con at the San Mateo Library. She will be instructing students in the art of letter writing, using a variety of historically appropriate quill pens, ink, sealing wax and paper.
We are getting sponsors for this event, and the most prominent is the San Mateo Public Library, where last year’s event was held and was a huge success. So that’s on Saturday, March 25, 2017, from Noon – 4:00 PM at 55 West 3rd Avenue, San Mateo, CA 94402. Many of us will be dressed up in our Regency attire, which is in no way required. There will be presentations, dance instruction, lectures on various Jane Austen related topics and of course hands-on workshops like this one on Letter Writing, entitled, “Creating Regency Letters with the Tools of Jane Austen’s Time.” Who knows? There may even be tea served!
