Since retiring as a Buddhist chaplain 4 years ago, Cliff started looking for a hobby and found that he enjoyed the concentration and discipline that sewing requires, likening it to a form of meditation.

He now makes his own shirts and recently delighted in the compliments he received from the staff at Liberty’s haberdashery department after wearing one of his own creations on a shopping trip.

Cliff also took up Argentine Tango lessons with his partner, so is able to make her one-off creations to wear for their classes.
