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. 

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
