About Us

Jane Gilder is the new owner of Victoria J Design.   She has spent the last 14 years teaching sewing and design in her private studio in Christchurch.  She has a love of teaching people of all ages and has been thrilled to see the creative growth in her students - many reaching sewing goals beyond their wildest dreams.

Two years ago Jane's family made the move to Te Anau, where she opened a Sewing & Design Studio.  She has enjoyed making bespoke garments for her customers. Jane's designs encompass simple clothing right through to tailored coats.  She has also run sewing classes and retreats for kids who have a love of fashion. 

Jane will be using all of the Victoria J pattern blocks that you know and love and in time will add her own designs into the collections. 

Drop Jane an email, text or call if you need a wardrobe refresh or to reorder one of your Victoria J favourites.   0275 346 163
