Sewing Partnerships



From January 2014 until 2017 Fiona worked in partnership with US based Mood Fabrics, writing regular posts of the Mood Sewing Network and was the first and only UK sewing blogger to join. She is regularly invited to promote sewing in a variety of creative ways by participating in and leading events such as the John Lewis Sewing Bee in 2014, Offset Warehouse's 2017 Eco Sewing Party and the McCall Pattern Company Cocktail Hour and Big Vintage Sew-alongs in aid of the Eve Appeal.


In early 2017 Fiona was invited to represent UK sewing bloggers on a visit to the Stoff & Stil headquarters in Herning, Denmark and in the spring the Parker Collection sewing pattern was released, which Fiona designed in collaboration with The Fold Line for Tribe Patterns. Fiona is regularly featured on The Fold Line website with her monthly picks of pattern releases and most recently she was invited to speak at their 2017 Sewing Weekender.
