Continuing the family tradition.
Sharon's parents both worked in the south wales furniture trade, her father, Doug, an upholsterer and her Mum, Alice, a sewing machinist.
"If mum wanted a make-over in the living room, we'd help Dad out with the furniture whilst she got on the sewing machine. It would be transformed in just a couple of days."
Although employed in manufacturing he preferred his evening work, restoring antiques. "I earned my pocket money stripping the chairs back after school. I'm very fortuate to have learned from them both."
Sharon also trained at "The Traditional Upholstery Workshop" in Meidrim, Carmarthenshire. Where she gained a distinction in the level 2 diploma from the AMUSF (Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers)
