OurAuckland events



Fabric-A-Brac is all about connecting community treasure troves of fabric and sewing notions to craft and sewing enthusiasts.

This event has a warm and friendly vibe where attendees will get a chance to purchase an array of unique and quality fabric and haberdashery.

From humble beginnings in Wellington back in 2009, Fabric-A-Brac has grown across New Zealand and Australia to become a favourite fabric fest held in Auckland, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Sydney and Brisbane.

This year’s Fabric-A-Brac event promises to delight with plenty of modern and vintage fabric and haberdashery on offer from private and designer collections.

Our Crafting Corner will showcase crocheting and wool work. To top things off, we will have live music and the Mercy Hospice fundraiser café will be offering cuppas and delectable treats.

We are holding Fabric-A-Brac at a new venue in Ponsonby, which is the St Columba Centre. It is centrally located with an extensive car park offering a cosy atmosphere with pleasant gardens and grassed areas.

Fabric-A-Brac never fails to attract lovers of all things fabric who keep coming back for more.

Proceeds from this event will go towards Mercy Hospice Auckland.


Saturday 5 September, 9am-12.30pm


 St Columba Centre
40 Vermont Street, Ponsonby
