No matter the name, I will still answer ? I began my business as Sealed With A Stitch in 2004. In 2015 I rebranded to Sue O’Very Designs. I was once given the nickname Sookie Bee and I loved it so much that I rebranded my business to Sookie Sews with the adorable little Bee as my logo. You can now find me everywhere now at Sookie Sews!

Sookie Sews sell machine embroidery design files and PDF sewing/serger patterns. When purchasing a project/pattern that says “In-the-Hoop” or ITH, that means you will need an embroidery machine to use those files. We do not sell the finished items shown.

It’s your responsibility to know what your embroidery machines hoop size is and which designs you can stitch. If you are unsure you should look in your user manual or ask your local dealer. Each design listed on Sookie Sews (formerly Sue O’Very Designs/Sealed With A Stitch) will post the exact dimensions or give an idea of how large the design is based on hoop size. If you have specific questions, please feel free to ask by contact.

Due to the electronic nature of the files we sell, know that there are no refunds, returns, or exchanges on our digital files. You agree to this by purchasing our files.

The files you are purchasing are zipped. The zipped file contains folders with Designs, Color Breakdowns, Images, and Instructions along with our Copyright policy. It is your responsibility to know how to unzip the file and transfer those files to your machine. If you are unsure you should look in your user manual or ask your local dealer.

PayPal functions much like the credit card machine you might use at your local grocery store. While making a purchase from Sookie Sews, you aren’t required to have a PayPal account. However, they will ask for your email address to ensure security for both you, the buyer, and Sookie Sews, the seller. Below, you’ll find steps to add your email through PayPal and input your credit card details securely. Should you have any further inquiries about this process, please don’t hesitate to reach out via the Contact Us form provided below.

If you have comments or questions please send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also find us at Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

Have a creative day,
