I love collecting inspiring stories about people out there either making it big or doing something exciting.

I was really surprised to read that the famous Dandelion Clocks that Sanderson produce was in fact designed by an independent freelance designer called Fiona Howard.

I found it really heartening to discover that a design as iconic and prolific as Dandelion Clocks wasn’t the product of a large in-house manufacturing team but the success of an artist who happened to design a cracking good pattern and have the luck to sell it.
