There are a few different ways in which #CossieConfidence will be brought to life this year. And they are things that you can get involved with too!

Shine - The Summer Retreat
You do not want to miss this!
November saw our first Shine - The Summer Retreat take place and it was a resounding success!
This is special. Really special. A unique retreat for 4 days and 3 nights, for 11 women, with every detail taken care of for you.
In a relaxed glam estate where it's all about you. Drop your cares at the gate and take in what you see before you. You've made it. Now it's time to just be. To relax, learn and have fun. To disconnect from the day to day and re-connect with you.
This summer is going to be different. This summer it's your time to Shine.
You Can Inspire Others
Post a pic on Instagram showing how you love to live your summer in your cossies and inspire others to do the same. #CossieConfidence so we can find you and so you can show the way for others.
A picture is powerful. In this age of social media and the selfie revolution surely we can harness these incredibly influential media for good. Posting a pic of yourself making your summer memories, is powerful and brave. It might just be the moment that gives someone the courage to get into their cossies and live their best summer.

Beach to Bush Ladies Day
Thanks to Maz, one of our Cossie Confidence Crew members and Anita having a chat about bringing the beach to the bush back in January of 2018, we are enormously proud to tell you about the Beach to Bush Ladies Day!
"Beach to Bush Ladies Day" is a community event brought to you by the "Carinda Sewing Group", bringing much needed emotional support for rural women in one of the worst drought affected area in Australia, the surrounding district of Carinda and Walgett in NSW. It will be held in the beautiful Garden at "Wonga" 47klms South of Walgett. 23kms from Carinda on the Carinda Walgettt Rd.
Beach to Bush Calendar
They’d been busy planning the Beach To Bush Ladies Day, gathering on Saturdays as they do, when one day, whilst sewing her quilt for The Biggest Morning Tea, the Carinda Sewing Group’s ideas girl, Toni, comes up with a doozy. “Why don’t we do a Calendar? In our cossies, work boots and Acubra’s on in dried up dams, with the sheep in the home paddock and bare cotton fields.”
“I’m in!” says Pat, the town’s 89 year old matriarch. “Me too. Me too. Jude, are you in? Yep.”
