    Most of us here love the fashions of the Regency era and one of the best aspects of the clothing of the period is the outerwear.  We are delighted to announce the addition of a new RSV Member-Friendly Merchant who can make all of your pelisse and spencer dreams come true:  Pelisse Me Regency!  Regency Society of Virginia members can get a 10% discount on their purchase when they let owner, Kimberly Costa, know that they are an RSV member.  Thank you so much, Kim and Pelisse Me Regency, for your support of the Regency Society of Virginia!

    We're so excited about the reticules that were submitted for our contest!  How people interpret "hibernation" is as varied as they are.  Now it's time to pick a winner...and we need your assistance!  Visit our Reticule Contest Voting page to see the variety of submissions and to cast your vote for your favorites.  You may vote for as many reticules as you like but can only vote once per day through May 8.  We will announce a winner on May 9.

    Good luck to all our participants!

    In compliance with the Governor of Virginia's order for citizens of the Commonwealth to stay home to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have cancelled all in-person events through June 10.  Should the order be rescinded prior to that date, we will evaluate which events may go forward at that time.

    We hope that in the meantime you will join us for our online events!  Click on the link to The Club to interact with us while we keep the appropriate social distance.  We look forward to the day that we will be able to meet in person again!

    Every respectable Regency gentleman wanted to be admitted to the membership of the most prestigious clubs so that he might have a fashionable place to socialize and wile away his leisure hours.  With Coronavirus keeping us inside, we decided we needed such a distraction, too.  (Only ours is online and open to everyone, whether you're a gentleman or not!)  We invite you to join us at The Club, a new page on our site for socializing while social distancing.  There, you'll find all the latest information on contests, online events, and virtual field trips so that you can stay in touch with the RSV without leaving the comfort of your home.  You don't need to be a member to participate.  We hope to see you there soon!

    Schools shut.  Government buildings closed.  Events cancelled.  Due to the sensible precautions being taken to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, many people are finding much more time on their hands.  And since we are unable to gather with you in person, the Regency Society of Virginia is hoping to take advantage of the technology that allows us to gather online by proposing....A CONTEST! 

    Use those extra days off and that fabric stash to create a reticule in keeping with the theme, "hibernation."  You may interpret that word in whatever way you please--and we encourage you to be creative!--and submit up to three pictures of your hibernation-inspired reticule to us at info@varegency.org by May 1, 2020.  We will be posting all submissions online and the winners will be chosen by vote.  And, yes!  Prizes (a selection from one of three late 18th-/early 19th century prints) will be awarded!  Visit our "event" listing for more details!

    Out of concern for the health of our members and friends, the Regency Society of Virginia will be suspending all gatherings through mid-April.  We will reevaluate the situation and make a determination on later events at the end of that period.

    In the meantime, be sure to watch your inbox for updates on RSV news and announcements.  We wish everyone good health as we join the community in attempting to minimize the spread of this virus.
