Our Story

About Us 

Jones and Taylor is a online business based in New Zealand.  We have a selection of quality fabrics, linings and notions from around the world. We do specialise in quality linings for coats, jackets and dresses that are unique. If you are looking for something special to finish off your lovingly made garment we just may be able to help.
All our products are sourced from many locations and we have met every one of our suppliers. We only associate with suppliers and manufacturers who strive to maintain ethical standards both with their products, employees and their business practice.
I hope I have something you may like on my website but if not, keep checking back or better still, sign up to my newsletter. Something new I've just started thanks to my new virtual assistant Sophie who also doubles as my darling daughter living in Edinburgh.

About Me 

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.  

Happy Sewing

Mary
