Peg Feodoroff closed out her successful, 25-year interior design firm, Inspired Interiors, to start Spirited Sisters in 2005 and its Healing Threads patient clothing line. Her inspiration? Her own experience with melanoma and sitting in a “johnnie” out in the waiting room while the non-patients were in street clothes. Today, Spirited Sisters revolutionary “accessible” clothing offers dignity and confidence to people undergoing any medical treatments, including but certainly not limited to, cancer treatments. The pulldown front panels offer medical professionals easy access to patients post surgery while maintaining patient modesty rather than patient exposure.
Peg is President of the company she started with her sister, Claire Goodhue, who succumbed to colon cancer in January 2006, and Patty Goodhue-O’Brien. Peg is responsible for the business of designing, manufacturing and distributing the Healing Threads line, which has been featured in the likes of Elle, The New York Times, People, Women’s Wear Daily, Women’s Health and O magazines. She has also appeared on many Boston and NYC television shows. In 2006, she received the Hall of Fame Start-Up Award from Boston Women’s Business Journal. She is also the recipient of the 2007 Courage Award /New England Women’s Leadership Award presented by the Daniel J Marr Boys and Girls Club, Boston, Massachusetts. She was honored as an exceptional woman at the 2008 “Exceptional Women” Celebration hosted by Magic 106.7, WMJX, Boston, Massachusetts. Peg actively participates in fashion shows for the American Cancer Society and other charitable organizations on a volunteer basis.
So passionate about the idea of providing stylish patient apparel to patients, Peg closed the commercial design firm she had started on her kitchen table and built into a sizeable office. She was named to the Boston Business Journal’s Top 25 Interior Design Firms for four years. For no fee, she designed the facilities of seven properties for the Committee to End Elder Homelessness in Boston, Massachusetts. Feodoroff was an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers.
Peg began her career as a 5th grade teacher in her native Randolph, Massachusetts. She is a graduate of Archbishop Williams High School and Boston State College. She is married with two married adult children, 5 cherished grandchildren, and resides in North Easton, Massachusetts.
