Downton Abbey Tea Time!

Here we are, ready to serve you!  No, wait, we are definitely the downstairs staff.

We are joined by the upstairs staff.  From left to right, Kevin, Linda, Teri, and Brian did the honors as hosts and hostesses.  The fun commenced as people started filing in, dressed in their Downton Abbey best.

Brian's proud mom is front and center, with her friends surrounding her.  The outfits were a lot of fun to look at, and we all had a great time.


Most of Teri's sisters were able to come.  Her twin sisters are above, and four out of the five girls are below.  We have here three flappers and a housemaid!  Guess Teri hasn't risen as high in the world as her sibs.

Local designer Brian Haggard circulated among the guests, giving his best impression of Carson...

then he began his talk, covering topics such as photo transfer, crazy quilting, using buttons in quilts, and the use of calling cards in upper crust society.

Brian brought quilts from both of his books, some of which we had only seen in the books.  It was great to get to see them up close.

He answered questions from the floor before our time together was up.

Our guests got to see the quilts even closer as Kevin walked them around the room.  The white gloves came in handy!
