World Frocktails background
After our wonderful Frocktails party in 2019 we started planning our 2020 Frocktails right away. We were all set to rent a beautiful space for for 2 days. Rather than simply have a party that people show up to, we dreamed of a fantastic few days for people to get to know each other through talks, some DIY sessions and pampering sessions. We were not able to do our in-person Frocktails though, which is why we are now hosting one online!
World Frocktails will be a week of online events filled with sewing community inspiration ranging from panel talks to sewalongs to cocktail and mocktail sessions with community leaders 8-13 February 2021. Tickets to attend are $35 for an all access pass or $25 for Topstitchmakers members.
It will be a combination of recordings, live sessions and collaborative community engagement. Every live event will be recorded for ticket holders to re-watch at their convenience. See the FAQ page for more info.
Some special guests include Katie Kortman, Jenny Rushmore, Michael Gardner, Amy Collins, Leila Kelleher, Elisalex de Castro Peake and many more!
