Enjoy a weekend in the Regency era with other ladies as enthusiastic about the time as you are! This 4-day/3-night event will be hosted at the beautiful North Point Plantation, an 18th century estate overlooking the Mattaponi River. Period attire is encouraged (but not required). Registration includes all lodging (shared beds) and meals for the duration of your stay. We will indulge in early 19th century amusements and pursuits and will once again welcome RSV Member-Friendly Merchant, Miriam's Yarns and Fibers, for an exclusive sari "trunk show" during the weekend. Space for this event is extremely limited so early registration is encouraged. Registration will open for RSV members on March 1, and will open for non-members on May 1. If you are unable to secure a space, be sure to add your name to the waitlist as we have often been able to pull from it in the past when a registrant is unable to attend.
