Our Story

About Us 

Jones and Taylor is my online fabric business in its fifth year, can you believe it? I am based in New Plymouth, New Zealand, a beautiful part of the country and well worth a visit with lots going on. 
I specialise in luxurious linings for coats and jackets. These gorgeous linings are sourced from around the globe. If you are looking for a 'WOW' factor to compliment the beautifully made coat or jacket you are making then it's worth a look at my website.
I also have a good range of Oilskin fabrics for Jackets, Coats and Bags. 
You will find a select collection of linens, tencel and hand printed organic cottons because sometimes I just can't resist buying them.
If you are visiting Taranaki please do pop in, I always look forward to meeting fellow sewers. Drop me an email at mary@jonesandtaylor.co.nz 

About Me 

I'm a Kiwi living back in New Zealand after spending many years in Australia and the UK.  I am married with two grown up children who were born in the UK and have since returned there. We try and visit them every year or so.

New Plymouth is home now and we are so very lucky to live in this beautiful part of the country. Full of wonderful beaches, a very big mountain, cycling, marathons, WOMAD, Classic car festivals and lots more.....you should visit!  We also have a very swish airport to fly into, just saying.

I love to sew and have a City and Guilds qualification from London's Westminster College for Fashion and Design. 

I decided to set up Jones and Taylor because I couldn't source good quality fabrics locally and it seemed like a good idea at the time.  Five years on and I'm still here, still sewing and enjoying what I do. I also enjoy a spot of knitting, walking and biking. The last two always involves a group of us starting from a cafe so we finish at a cafe, I also love coffee.

That's me, Mary
