Things We're Loving
``The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.``
As spring arrives at last, our guest blogger Zoe Wheddon, author of Jane Austen Daddy's Girl, The Life & Influence of The Revd. George Austen, looks at the role Jane's father, the Reverend George Austen played in fostering his daughter's ‘effusions of fancy’.
Embroidery was the height of fashion in Jane Austen’s time and every lady was expected to learn to do 'fancy work'. In this month’s ‘Musings’, Alison Larkin, co-author of Jane Austen Embroidery (along with another of our guest bloggers, Professor Jennie Batchelor) and an expert embroiderer herself, gives us a fascinating insight into the art of embroidery in Georgian England.
The whole event has been amazing. The ball was a definite highlight. The whole experience has been a dream come true.
Surpassed all expectations. Friendly and knowledgeably tour guide was a highlight. Everything organised so well. Obvious a lot of time spent on planning to make this truly special. Special mention to the hair dresser who made a bob regency appropriate!
The tour was amazing. I enjoyed every bit of it. Particularly the part of dressing up back in time and learning all the dances. It felt like a dream! Specially attending the ball! Thank you so much for everything.
