Frocktails 17 Feb 2018

Regular price $85.00 Sale

Join us for Frocktails on Saturday 17 Feb 2018.

Frocktails is the sewing community's night of nights!  We had so much fun in Feb 2017, that its time for our next party! 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!  

It will be a great night....there will be prizes, goodie bags and more importantly, a opportunity for us to dress up and make new sewing friends!

Date and time

Saturday 17 Feb 2018 at 7pm


Dove and Olive, 156 Devonshire Street, Surry Hills

** 5mins from Central and Crown Street.

Ticket price


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.

I have a dietary requirement, how do I tell you?

In the cart above, please choose the option with dietary requirement and tell me what you need in the "notes to seller" section.

What will the prizes be?

Our prizes were epic at our last event.  This year I will focus on a few and very special prizes. Keep an eye out on our Instagram page and look for the #sydneyfrocktails tag.  Here are a glimpse of our wonderful and generous sponsors!  And let's not forget about our fabulous goodie bag - filled to the brim with discounts from our most favourite suppliers!

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.  But it is not compulsory and I certainly won't be checking at that door!  It's a night to have fun and feel fabulous with our friends! 

Do I receive an actual ticket?

You will be able to download a document with a map after the checkout. You don't need to bring this on the night.  I will give out your name tag and drinks voucher at the start of the night. 

Will I have a name tag?

Of course!  If you would like your instagram name on them, please add that into the "notes to seller" section at the checkout.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes of course, the more the merrier.  You can purchase as many tickets as you need in the cart above. If you bring some friends, please add their names in the notes to seller section of the checkout    

How many people will be there?

We hosted 70 wonderful sewists in February 2017! So I am hoping we have around 80 or 90 this year! Please, please don't be afraid to come by yourself, we are all very friendly and the aim of the night is to meet other sewists! 

You can see all about last Feb's event here.

Will there be a photographer?

Mr UsefulBox will again be doing a great job of photos and they will be loaded live onto Instagram with the hashtag #sydneyfrocktails.  I would be more than happy to send you the high res files of your photos.

We will endeavour to ensure that the photos have as much natural light as possible, given the time of night.  BUT if you would like to have photos taken in the twilight, please let us know in the "notes to seller" section of the checkout and you can arrive anytime from 6pm to have those photos taken. 

Will it be loud?

Last year, I was given some feedback that it was too noisy in the venue.  I have taken that into consideration and will be asking for background music to be low and the layout of this venue is more spread out.  However, when we get over 70 excited sewing people in the same room, it will be on the loud side.  

Is there a hashtag for this event?

Please use #sydneyfrocktails for all your pics on instagram.

Will there be any "side events"?

These are being planned....stay tuned to both UsefulBox and Sydney Spoolette FB pages. 

Can I refund my ticket?

I will help you transfer your ticket but refunds aren't possible I'm afraid.

(If you will be heavily pregnant by that date and given babies can be so unpredictable, send me an email and we can sort something out!)

Waitlist and any problems?

Please email me here if you would like to do on the waitlist, have any questions or problems. 

Looking forward to seeing you!
