Somewhere In Time, Unlimited, is a historical costuming society located in Seattle. Here is a video from their Dickens of a Christmas Tea on December 6, 2009.
On the SITU website, you will find information about their upcoming events, activities in which one can participate, photos from their past events, educational information such as classes or articles, links to other costume sites, a few past newsletters, information from The Sewing Circle with upcoming sessions or suggestions on obtaining fabric deals and “Dress Up Opportunities”
The SITU “season” commences with an opulent holiday ball. They have danced their way through Old Vienna, Georgian and Dickens’ England, and the Russia of the Romanovs.
Spring and Autumn events are typically smaller and more informal. Themes have included an 18th century fair, a Gothic literary tea, a 19th century explorer’s gathering, a 1920s speakeasy, a nightclub in 1930s Shanghai, and murder mysteries.
Summer features al fresco events such as garden parties, Victorian bathing parties, a day at the horse races, a cricket match, and a tiger hunt in the India of the Raj!
Events may include a potluck meal or tea, contests and games, period music, dancing, entertainment, or trips to historic sites. They are always fun for singles, couples and families. Every attempt is made to keep costs reasonable.
