Note: while organized by Kate and Liz of Needlework, Hamilton Frocktails is a community event run by volunteers and is being hosted on a not-for-profit basis. 


Hamilton Frocktails is an event for local sewists to dress up in lovingly handmade outfits and mix and mingle with new sewing friends! Inspired by other Frocktails parties around the world, this will be the first of it's kind in Hamilton. Hamilton Frocktails will be happening on Saturday, June 1st, 2019 at Toast Wine Bar. More details can be found on our event details page.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend Hamilton Frocktails (as long as you're 19+!). The only stipulation is that you must wear a handmade outfit. This can be a brand new ensemble sewn especially for the event, or you can use this party as a great excuse to pull out something you've already made! And you certainly don't have to wear a dress. A jumpsuit, skirt and top, suit, jacket...anything is fair game!
