Frocktails Spring 2019
Join us for a Frocktails Extravaganza on the weekend of 6, 7 & 8 September 2019!
Due to an overwhelming response for our February Frocktails, let's do it all again in September this year. And this time, let's make a weekend of it!
THE MAIN EVENT - FROCKTAILS, 7 SEPTEMBER
Frocktails is the sewing community's favourite nights where we get to meet fellow sewers and wear a garment/accessory that we have made ourselves. As for the past 3 Frocktails, there will be prizes, goodie bags and more importantly, a opportunity for us to dress up and make new sewing friends! Now that we have two a year, it's a chance to make another garment for different weather! Any excuse right? (For more info and fine print, please see the bottom of the page)
Date and time: Saturday 7 September 2019 at 7pm.
Venue: The Quarrymans, 214 Harris Street, Pyrmont
Ticket price: $85
WEEKEND EVENTS - Details Coming Soon
To really make a weekend of it, I'm putting together quite the schedule. Plans are coming together nicely, and for the moment you can start plotting which, or all, extra events you'll choose. All details and prices coming soon.
FRIDAY 6th, SHOPPING AFTERNOON AND WELCOME DINNER
Join us at 330pm in Surry Hills for a spot of fabric shopping at one of our favourite stores. Then after we've shopped up a storm, we will move onto a quick drink and then a casual dinner to get to know each other before Frocktails!
SATURDAY 7th, FUN DAY
Choose between shopping & lunch events or workshops.
SUNDAY 8th, RECOVERY BRUNCH AND SHOPPING
Gather together for a soothing recovery brunch and spot of shopping with all the new friends you've made the night before.
All details coming soon....
You will be sent a confirmation of booking after check out. You don't need a physical ticket to get into the event - your name will be on a door list.
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 checkout, tell me what you need in the "notes to seller" section please
What will the prizes be?
Our prizes are epic thanks to our wonderful sponsors. Keep an eye out on our Instagram page and look for the #sydneyfrocktails tag.
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?
Frocktails has grown from 70 to 100 sewists in the room. This venue can hold 120 so we'll see how we go! 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!
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, #sydneyfrocktails19 or #sydneyfrocktails2019. 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 and are full length as possible, given the time of night.
Is there a hashtag for this event?
Please use #sydneyfrocktails or #sydneyfrocktails19 for all your pics on instagram.
Can I refund my ticket?
I can only refund your ticket if I can transfer to a person on the waitlist. This will get harder as we get closer to the date.
(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!
