New Portland OR group

Postby Bookwyrm » Sat Nov 06, 2010 6:34 pm

Hi all,

A friend and I have decided to start a Victorian costuming group in Portland, OR, since we couldn't find one to join. We are the Puddletown Victorian Enthusiasts' Society. Our website is http://victorianportland.org/

We meet twice monthly at the moment:
- Second Sundays, 2 - 4pm at Hollywood Wine & Espresso Bar (4075 NE Sandy)
- Fourth Thursdays, 6 - 8m at Old Town Pizza (226 NW Davis) - note: Thursday meeting canceled for Nov. and Dec. due to holidays.

We'll also be doing 'real' events, in addition to regular meetings, when we get our act together. I think the first one will be a costumed visit to the Oregon Historical Society museum in Portland, but details haven't been hashed out all the way.

Color me jealous! Perhaps if I ever make it back out to Portland, I'll be able to impose myself on one of your meetings. Best of luck to you!

We'd love to have you! At the moment there are just a few of us, so thanks for the well-wishes.

Hi, Bookwyrm. I live about seventy miles from Portlanld, on the coast. Would love to join you on some of your outings. :bounce: I don't usually travel to Portland during the winter, but I hope I can make some of the meetings starting in the spring. Good luck with your group.

Are there any up coming events? I'm out in Newberg and when I finish my first Victorian outfit I should love a place to wear it.=)

We are looking at doing a Victorian Dance in May. We'd love to have you!

Did anything come of this? I checked your group's website and don't see this listed.=)

Sadly, we pretty much dissolved. It was a lovely idea, but more difficult in practice. There is a dance in the works, but I haven't been part of organizing it - one of our brief members decided to go ahead on a very casual summer social dance. I've been traveling the last week, so I don't know anything about anything, but I'm going to check around and see what I can find. When I have more information I'll let you know.
