Auckland Frocktails 2024 – SAVE THE DATE!

What is Frocktails?

If you’ve just stumbled across Frocktails for the first time, you may be wondering – what is it?

If you haven’t heard of Frocktails before, it’s a event that has been run in Wellington and Christchurch for years and only a few times in Auckland – the last being in 2022 – so I think it’s time we did it again! 

It’s a cocktail event for the sewing/embroidery/crafting community – frock + cocktails = ⭐️ Frocktails ⭐️

The basic concept is you make your own outfit for the event – it can be something from scratch, something you buy and change or an existing outfit you decorate (e.g. with embroidery) and then you have an awesome event to wear it to. You don’t HAVE to make your own outfit, you can of course wear anything you like, but I hope we can inspire you have something you’ve made on your outfit to show off (even if it’s just a name badge or bag).

There are a number of spot prizes etc on the night along with goodie bags full sewing themed goodies for you to take home. I will release more details about this as I get sponsors on board and work through the details.

I need your help!

This is the first time I’m running the Frocktails event so I’m looking to put a bit of my own spin on it with some “help you make your outfit” sessions in the lead up to the event. How cool would it be if you learnt some new skills about sewing, embroidery and altering your clothes to fit you AND then you also had somewhere cool to wear your outfit to?

If you are an experienced sewer, embroiderer or a skill in another relevant area and you would be keen to get involved with running some lead up classes – please get in touch with me – mandy@aucklandfrocktails.co.nz

I’m Also Looking for Sponsors!

I am also about to start looking for some sponsors for the event, if this is something your business would like to get involved in, flick me an email and I will share more details as soon as they are available – mandy@aucklandfrocktails.co.nz
