FROCKTAILS - our night of nights.  The first event has taken place for 2017.  See all the details here!

Frocktails is the sewing community's night of nights!  Most notably held in Melbourne, this event is where we get to meet fellow sewers and wear a garment/accessory that we have made ourselves. 

Start planning your outfits!  You could use this occasion to challenge yourself and your skills.  Perhaps use fabric and pattern that is in your stash, or use a vintage pattern, or fabric that you've never sewn with before.  Or even make something that you've always wanted to but never had the excuse to!  

Join us for a great night....there will be prizes and more importantly, a opportunity for us to dress up and meet everyone!  

Here are all the details:

Date and time

Saturday 18th Feb from 730pm


The Edinburgh Castle Hotel
Cnr of Pitt and Bathurst Street in the CBD

What does my ticket include?

Each ticket includes delicious canapés to fill up your tummy, an arrival cocktail and a follow up drink.  PLUS the chance to win some great prizes, meet so many new friends and build your sewing community. Dietary requirements will be taken into account.

What will the prizes be?

Keep an eye out on our Instagram page and look for the #sydneyfrocktails tag.  Here are a glimpse of our wonderful and generous sponsors! 

Do I have to wear something that I have made?

We highly encourage you to wear something you have made, whether it's part or all of your outfit, a bag, a hat or your jewellery.  There won't be a prize for best dressed, as seriously, who could choose!  It's a night to have fun not compete.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes of course, the more the merrier.  You can purchase as many tickets as you need.

There will be 50-60 of us there for a wonderful night! Don't be afraid to come by yourself, we are all very friendly and the aim of the night is to meet other sewists!

Will there be a photographer?

We will have a photographer there to take photos of our wonderful night.  We will be uploading arrival photos to instragram live....hopefully if my husband can work out how to do that!
