Sewing took a back seat until her 20s when she became a “golf widow” and needed something to occupy her time when her partner was on the course.

Motherhood gave Fiona the opportunity to make clothes for her three kids, and she moved onto all the soft furnishing for their home.

These days she’s a self-proclaimed “selfish sewer” who only makes for herself, which she does almost daily in her studio at the top of the house, with her beloved dog Coco by her side.
