The Sue Daley Designs Difference

Sue Daley Designs pre-cut papers are precision die-cut from high quality cardstock. The unique coating is designed to work with the Sue Daley Designs Sewline Glue Pen so the papers can removed from the fabric with ease and be re-used multiple times.


Sue Daley’s English Paper Piecing

The technique that Sue Daley introduced to the world of English Paper Piecing is the glue-baste method. By using a Sue Daley Sewline fabric glue pen to prepare your shapes, you can easily cut down your preparation time by more than 75%!

English Paper Piecing dates back to the 1800’s and the process of this hand sewing technique was very time consuming. Fabric was thread basted over paper hexagons cut from old letters or ledgers and then whip stitched together. Scissors were used to cut the fabric pieces approximately ¼” larger than the paper shape, meaning a quilt could take years to finish by hand.

Today the same basic principles are used, but technology is a wonderful thing, making this very time consuming technique achievable by patchworkers far and wide. Up until very recently, patchworkers were still basting their fabric onto papers, sewing through the card and fabric with thread! Luckily we now have the Sue Daley method and her range of English Paper Piecing notions to make this technique simple for all sewers.

Thank you for my latest order. Apart from the fact your products are always first class, they are always beautifully wrapped and presented that it is like receiving a present even though I know what is in the order. I am so looking forward to making my Clamshell Sewing Keep as I have not tackled clamshells before. I have watched the tutorial, another great help, and am eager to start. And if all the above is not enough, tomorrow I can start opening my 25 Days to Christmas parcels which have been burning a hole in my pocket. I wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year and hope you find some time to sew over the busy Christmas period.

I received my goods today and the very appreciated gift of quilting fabric. Even though I have a Spotlight within 40 kilometres of my home, I still try to support online businesses such as Patchwork with Busyfingers. I cannot fault your service and will continue to deal with your organisation in the future.

Your needles are wonderful and I love your YouTube videos. I have just been doing EPP this past month, and every time I have a few minute I work on EPP. Thank you for all you have done for us!
