Guild Meeting: Monday, May 12, 2014
Speaker: Sue Daley from Australia

Sue’s love of Patchwork began in 1980 when she was expecting her first child. She made one quilt a year for 3 years. After her third child was born Sue decided she could get a little more serious now that she had a girl. Obsessive is probably the best way to describe it now, with most of her days being filled with designing and teaching across Australia and all over the world.
Sue wrote her first book in 2003 and has gone on to write 4 more books on English Paper Piecing.

In 2005 Sue and her husband purchased a beautiful, private 3-acre property. After extensive landscaping and a seasonal creek and green mountain backdrop, away from the hustle and bustle of the real world, Kindred Spirits Bed and Breakfast and the Candlelight Cottage came into being. Sue and her husband run them. The B&B specializes in Patchwork retreats and is renowned for the beautiful surroundings, fabulous food and excellent classes. It is also the home of "Patchwork with Busyfingers". Here you will be sure to find many of the beautiful quilts and accessories that Sue has designed over the past 30 years. Together with her husband and several staff, Sue runs this successful business supplying patchworkers, not only locally, but internationally.
