Here’s a little roundup of NZ fabric stores where you can shop online to buy fabrics appropriate for garment sewing! I’m always trying to buy as locally as possible, and shipping from overseas can be agonising (both in terms of wait time and cost), so shopping close to home (and in your own currency) is a great alternative.
I’ve made my favourite shops bold! These are shops that I’ve shopped with and would wholeheartedly recommend!
Ackroyd & Adams (based in Auckland)
They have a selection of different fabrics including merino and cotton knits, denim, cottons and linens
Angel Fabrics (based in Auckland)
They have a selection of knit fabrics suitable for underwear, dance wear, and swimwear.
AS Fabrics (based in NZ)
They have a small selection of fabrics (lot of polyester) which are leftovers from Annah Stretton’s factory. They actually charge more for postage the more fabric you order.
Backstreet Bargains (based in Hamilton)
They have a variety of fabrics at very decent prices. They have a system on their website for requesting samples, which you pay for, but I’ve also had luck getting free samples by emailing the store (either way, the samples are very small)
