We are down to the wire – with only three sleeps (or sleepless nights, depending on where your outfit is at…!) to go until Melbourne Frocktails 2018!
On that note, if your last minute plans involve adapting an older, unloved dress, or upcycling and repurposing something then you can nominate yourself for the Sew For Good eco thread pack prize. Just remember to tell us at arrival on the night that you’ve “gone eco” on your outfit and your name will go into the limited pool for winning that prize (along with still being in the draw for all the other giveaways)
It’s definitely not to late to take advantage of the pre-event sponsor discounts. Treat yourself to some fabric or patterns from Maaidesign, a belt or fabulous buttons from Buttonmania, or supplies to sew your undergarments from Sew Squirrel. Check your ticket purchase email for those sponsor discount codes. Should your sewing plans go completely awry and you find yourself planning a last minute dress from a PDF pattern, don’t forget that Creffield Digital Print can have it printed perfectly for you in a jiffy.
Now, let’s relax and assume we’re all ready for the night… How to get to Campari House?
Campari House is in Hardware lane, between Bourke and Little Bourke Sts and just to the West of Elizabeth St (map link here). It’s an easy, short walk from either Flinders St or Melbourne Central Train Stations, or any Elizabeth St or Bourke St tram service. Should you have a designated driver, or be the nominated driver for your party, there is a multistory carpark directly opposite Campari House with entrance off Hardware Lane (map address 392 Bourke St).
We will be in the Lounge Bar at Campari House which is on the second floor. That does mean a few flights of stairs to climb. If you have mobility problems or suspect the stairs will cause you difficulty please let Lisa or I know immediately and we’ll see what we can do to help.
So, we look forward to seeing you at Campari House from 7pm on Saturday night. We’ll have name tags, cocktails on arrival, our photographer to document your fabulousness, canapes, door prizes, and our take home stash bags. It’s going to be fabulous!
