Speaker: Sue Daley from Australia
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.
