Hi I'm Mary and I live in New Plymouth, Taranaki. I'm an avid sewer and love beautiful fabrics. A little over 3 years ago I set up Jones and Taylor. Having lived in London for a number of years I missed the many choices available to a home sewer like myself. So with the decision made Jones and Taylor was born. Since then the business has continued to grow, which is lovely because that means more people are returning to sewing.
When in London I studied Fashion and Design at Westminster College. I have sewn my own clothes for as long as I can remember but as we all know, you can always learn something new about sewing. I like that about our craft.
When I'm not busy with Jones and Taylor I'm beavering away in my sewing room. Sewing is a great form of mindfulness allowing the creativeness to flow but sometimes you just have to go take a walk or a bike ride and enjoy the great outdoors. We live in a beautiful part of the country with Mount Taranaki on one side and the Tasman Sea on the other.
Anyhoo, that's me.
Thank you for supporting local business.
