Asheville Frocktails



What is Frocktails?

Frocktails provides sewists in our community an opportunity to socialize with new and old sewing friends, wear (and show off!) a hand-made garment, and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. We are excited to continue the event that has made its way from Australia, to Europe, to Canada, and recently, to the United States! 

What is included with my ticket?

Tickets include h'ours devours, a drink ticket, a gift pack, a raffle ticket, and the opportunity to meet other members of our sewing community! 

Please note: Tickets are transferrable but not refundable. 

Do I need to bring anything?

Once you've purchased your ticket, you're on the list! There is no need to print out your confirmation email. 

In the spirit of encouraging each other to wear handmade clothing, Asheville Frocktails is asking that you bring a gently used, ready-to-wear professional clothing item to donate to a free local clothes closet to support low-income working professionals and interviewees here in Asheville.

What if I didn't make my dress?

We'd love it if you would wear something you made! If you don't want to make a garment, you can make your handbag or another accessory, but we definitely won't turn you away if you're not wearing a handmade item. Just come and have fun! 


Is there parking close by?

The Coxe Avenue Parking Garage and a private parking lot are located directly behind the building. Both locations can be accessed from Coxe Avenue. 

Do I have to be 21?

We're inviting sewists of all ages! Of course, you will have to be at least 21 to have an alcoholic beverage.
