Sassy Jacks Stitchery is a vibrant new needlework supply shop with a brick and mortar presence coming soon in Asheville NC, and an online presence at www.sassyjacksstitchery.com. Sassy Jacks was founded in 2014 to meet the need of the local needlework community in the Cary/Raleigh area, after losing several of our local needlework shops. I LOVE Needlework and handcrafts, and I sincerely want this industry to be alive and well for all of our future generations. I want to pass this love and craft to anyone and everyone who will pause long enough for me to place a needle and thread in their hand!
Sassy Jacks Stitchery provides a wide selection of charts and supplies for cross stitch, needlepoint, punch needle, and hand embroidery.
Check out our Designers Page for a look at all of the fabulous designers we carry… Plum Street Samplers, Hands Across The Sea Samplers, Hands On Design, With Thy Needle and Thread, Blackbird Designs, Lizzie Kate, Just Nan, Rosewood Manor, Mirabilia, Heartstring Samplery, and Victoria Sampler, to name just a fraction of the creative minds contributing to our stock!
Sassy Jacks carries a great selection of fabric, including Zweigart, Weeks Dye Works, Silk Weavers, Picture This Plus, Hand Dyed By Stephanie and much more. You’ll find beautiful colors in various counts for both Aida and Linen. Our Linen and Aida is available in Fat Quarter, Half Yard, and One Yard sizes. We also offer a fantastic stock of Wool by Weeks Dye Works. Our Wool is offered in Fat Quarter, Fat Eighth, and “Sassy Smalls”. The Sassy Small measures about 8 x 8 with some variation depending on how the original cut arrives from Weeks, as they sometimes vary slightly.
Punch Needle is a favorite new craft for many of us, with origins dating back to the 1700s or earlier. Many designs harken to a more primitive folk art era reminiscent of our colonial roots, while some are fresh and contemporary. Sassy Jacks offers Weavers Cloth for our Punch Needle folk in many beautiful colors, as well as several neutral shades. My favorite punch needle fabric is from Weeks Dye Works… I love the soft feel and the colors are wonderful. And if you’re looking for some great designs to treat yourself with, check out Notforgotten Farms, Teresa Kogut, or Threads That Bind, or browse through our Punch Needle Product Category. We love Punch Needle and hope you will too!
And fibers… there are so many colors and so little time. We offer Weeks Dye Works (6-ply and 2-ply), The Gentle Art, Classic Colorworks, Ship’s Manor, DMC, and more.
John James Needles are our standard… in fact… every purchase you make with Sassy Jacks Stitchery will be accompanied by a John James Needle. WE WANT YOU TO STITCH!! And keep this wonderful art form and creative outlet alive and well!
We will soon be opening our new shop at 1 Florida Avenue right off Main Street in Weaverville, NC. We’ll spend the next year in Weaverville, right up the road from our permanent home in the historic Baird House. You can also find us on the web at www.sassyjacksstitchery.com. We ship USPS (US Postal Service) to save you postage, and most in stock items go out the day after order, finding their way into your hands within three mailing days (pending postal service, of course).
We’ve been diligently working on the rehabilitation of our permanent home over the last two years. Our ultimate brick and mortar home will be the historic Baird House in Asheville, NC (National Listing of Historic Sites). The Baird House is a beautiful old Folk Victorian, and sits in the town of Woodfin in the North Asheville area. It was built in 1878 by Zebulon H. Baird and remained in the Baird family until 2006. The Baird House has been undergoing renovations over the last two years in preparation for us. It will be a fabulous home for Sassy Jacks Stitchery. In the meantime, please visit us a few miles up the road in the beautiful town of Weaverville, NC. We’ll be opening there soon at 1 Florida Avenue, Weaverville, NC 28787. Please also feel free to join us on Facebook for updates on the renovations of this wonderful old Folk Victorian treasure.
Please contact me by phone, e-mail, Facebook, regular mail, or personal visit, and make this little shop your own. We are so very excited to be here to serve you… and laugh with you… and stitch with you! Thank you for joining us at Sassy Jacks Stitchery!!
