Here, I’ve rounded up places in the Christchurch area that you can shop for garment-making fabrics! Have I missed any? Let me know in the comments!
If you’re heading to the Tannery
Check out Bolt of Cloth (Marimekko & quilting cottons), Fabric House (mostly upholstery fabrics), and the Wools Yarn and Fibre (which is out the front of the local weavers and spinners guild).
47 Birmingham Drive, Middleton
If you need a specific shade of ribbing (mostly poly), fire-proof high-vis fabric, cotton/poly shirtings, lining materials and wool/poly suiting, then Harald’s Fabric is probably for you! They also have upholstery and waterproof fabrics.
179 Ferry Road, Phillipstown
A vintage store with a great selection of vintage fabrics, threads, trims, buttons and much more!
41 Riccarton Road, Riccarton
I lived in Christchurch for 3 years before I managed to make it here, and what I found was oodles of fabric at bargain prices (much of it still labelled from the wholesaler so you knew exactly what it was). Plenty of garment fabrics and notions, and all the brightly coloured fur or poly velvet you would ever need! Also, a large selection of quilting cottons.
Bernina Christchurch Sewing Centre
580 Colombo Street, Christchurch
In addition to A Lot of quilting supplies and fancy sewing machines, this store has a small selection of garment fabrics.
Big Box Stores
Of course, Christchurch also has Spotlight and Lincraft stores, if that’s what you’re after!
Second-hand & Vintage Stores
Sometimes I’ve found some great fabrics at second-hand stores! Pop ‘second hand shop’ into google maps and see what’s nearby!
