Canberra Frocktails

Winter can be lame. Seriously lame. Shorter days, grey skies and the need to wear 54 layers to get to the car. Blergh. But there are a few things that can make winter fun: rad friends, fierce outfits and delicious cocktails! “But how do we bring this all together?”, I hear you say. Two words: Canberra Frocktails.


Inspired by the fantastic events organised by Kat, the Canberra Sewing Crew are hosting Canberra Frocktails on Saturday June 27th. And for those gents who think Frocktails is only for the ladies- never fear! If you are someone who sews you are most welcome. Come brave the mid-winter chill, sample a tasty cocktail or three, and catch up with everyone around in your finest ensemble!

Canberra Frocktails will be held at Monster kitchen and bar. Monster is located in the Nishi building in New Acton which is home to possibly the most photographed staircase in Australia (see why below). After several reconnaissance missions, the CBR Sewing Crew can confidently report it serves amazing locally sourced food, tasty wines and awesome cocktails. Tickets will be $70 for the evening and this includes a glass of bubbles on arrival, canapés served throughout the evening and our own private area to schmooze in. Like the sassy bosses we are!

    • It is so much fun! I’v been to two (one in Melbourne and one in Sydney) organised by Kat and they were the best! Frocks, food and laughter = win 😀

  1. Yay, cannot wait! I’ve already arranged my chauffeur for the weekend (thanks Dave) and am looking at hotels. Wish I was rich enough to stay at Hotel Hotel…tres fancy pancy.

    • It is so fancy! I wanna stay there myself and am seriously considering crashing in town for the night! Looking forward to having you here – ALL THE FUN!

  2. I’m still not sure if I’ll be able to come but I am hoping I can. I will shoot an email over so I know what’s going on.

  3. I knew there was a reason I needed to get into the sewing blogosphere. If you’ll accept interstate interlopers I might try and come down from Sydney.

    • Huzzah! We’d love to have you along, Pam! The more the merrier- please send an email through to CBRfrocktails and we’ll pop you on the mail list 😀 😀 😀

  4. I feel it possibly could be renamed Frocktails and Coats, because we know Canberra ain’t the land of warmth in winter…which now sounds like a great plan! Deadline to make a coat appointed!

  5. Hey Amanda
    Are you planning an event for 2016? I would love to come down for it. We are planning to move to CBR in the next few years and I’m already scoping out the sewing community!!
    Caz xx
