Fun Photos from EGA Lecture

After Autumn's lecture on September 7th, Embroiders Guild of America attendees (about 600 of them) were invited to examine the antique corset collection and get laced up in Dark Garden size samples. About three dozen ladies took us up on the offer for their first time wearing a corset. Thanks to Sara for sending along some super duper photos of Betty, Jan and Jody.

Sunday, Sept 26 In two places at once: Folsom Street Fair & Handcar Regatta

So sorry we have not posted this sooner, but the logistics of being in 2 places at once is rather daunting! OK, and we've been distracted by little Zephyr. Yes, this year on Sunday, Dark Garden will be enjoying our usual leather and fetish fun at Folsom Street Fair AND cinching on our Steampunk best at the Handcar Regatta! Call us crazy!

Booth #0825-27, Across from 1226 Folsom, between 8th and 9th, San Francisco, CA, USA. Official hours are 11am-6pm, but set up is at 7am -- thank goodness we are friends with Ryan and Rose of Wicked Grounds, Kink Cafe, just a half block away from the booth. http://www.wickedgrounds.com
