Our meeting themes always follow Tasha’s interests such as dolls, gardening, hands-on workshops in painting, quilting, felting, and of course, brewing a pot of Tasha’s breakfast tea. Once a year we drive two hours to attend a PA Chapter meeting to absorb more good Tasha vibes. This year we will plan our activities with the hope of attracting younger participants.  Contact Diane Flanigan in Bordentown, NJ at dianeflanigan@verizon.net or find us on Facebook at Tasha Tudor Society NJ Chapter.

Finger Lakes Western New York Chapter – The Finger Lakes Western New York Chapter, established in 2013 in Macedon, New York established a Story Book Trail with the Macedon Public Library where we celebrate Tasha’s books and local authors. Covid changed our way of doing things, and as of 2023 we are beginning to settle into new ways to celebrate the loving beauty of Tasha Tudor’s life. We no longer meet physically, but share every night on our private Facebook group. This has opened up a brand new way of communicating for many of us, and it is our privilege to do so. Our history with this Society has been lovely, and we expect only the same for its future direction. We are now considering reading some of Tasha’s books online, plus the nightly conversation that continues on. Sharing the wonder of Tasha’s life has been our privilege. We are Richard and Carol Elaine Deys, Co-Chairs. Supported by many, we move forward sharing peaceful, simple ways and encouraging others to do the same. Won’t you join in on the conversation? You are most welcome to do so. Contact Carol Elaine in Macedon, NY at paradeysacres@aol.com or 315-986-2302 or find us on Facebook at Tasha Tudor Society Fingerlakes Western New York Chapter

As a relatively new chapter of The Tasha Tudor Society, we intend to meet once this year. We very much enjoyed hosting our first event in the fall 2018, A Harvest of Tasha Tudor Traditions, and look forward to creating another enjoyable evening in 2019.
