August Afternoon 2017

An August Afternoon

At Sassy Jacks Stitchery

With Susan Greening Davis

Tuesday August 15, 2017

1:00 – 5:00 pm


Late August in Asheville… EGA National Seminar… A new Needlework shop… A beautiful setting on Main Street USA… What more could you ask for??  A sweet little class??  Oh… yes… I agree… that’s a great idea J  Let’s do it.


Join us for a wonderful class with visiting designer Susan Greening Davis.  Susan has designed a brand new class for us with a beautiful pin cushion attached to a vintage clamp.  Susan is known throughout the industry for her self-finishing classes, and you will love being able to finish this project without costly fees to a framer.


“Celebrate the beautiful fall season that is approaching Asheville and Sassy Jacks.

Susan Greening Davis has created a darling pin cushion that sets ONTOP of a vintage clamp! You will love stitching on the even weave linen banding….exclusively from Germany.

The fall GATS threads will be the beautiful accent colors for the borders and some beautiful acorns…..the rest will make you smile.”


The class will be held at Sassy Jacks Stitchery, 1 Florida Avenue, Weaverville, NC  28787.  Our entrance is right on Main Street (at Florida Avenue) and there are lots of wonderful easy places to eat lunch well within walking distance.   The cost of the class and kit, including the wonderful vintage clamp and the beautiful German banding is only $85.


We also have a wonderful new quilt shop right next door called “5 Little Monkeys Quilt and Sew”.


I just can’t think of a better way to spend a lazy August afternoon in the mountains… especially if you’re there for the EGA National Seminar anyway!!  Or just come see us… we’ll keep you plenty busy J  Also check out the Sampler Lecture the night before, Monday August 14th, also at Sassy Jacks Stitchery.


Susan Greening Davis


Many of you have studied with Susan Greening Davis before, and are familiar with her famous self-finishing kits.  Susan has studied with masters of their stitching craft in locations all over the world, and incorporates her learnings into fun and beautiful projects for her students.  For those of you who are new to Susan’s wonderful creations, I’ve shared a bit of her bio below:


Susan Greening Davis is known as a needle artist/technician.  She has had the pleasure of designing, and teaching, for shop owners, guilds, and events for the last 30 years.  Susan studied her trade in Denmark, England, Germany, Holland, and Italy, as well as with the Danish masters who have visited the United States to instruct.

Susan designs all of her creations – from start to the famous “self-finishing” – she is known for.  She stitches all of her creations as they come from her head, through her heart, and then the needle.  After the correct fabric, fibers, stitches and finishing are completed the design is charted.

Being known as the “original gadget gal” in the industry has allowed Susan to teach how many of our beloved “toys” can improve your needle skills.  She is a “hands on” teacher, who can teach left-handed students, as well as right-handed ones.  Susan is fondly referred to as “the ambi-stitcher”!

Susan received an honor from DMC, an “International Teacher of the Year” award.

She was also selected from an international slate of needle workers to appear on HGTV, to represent the counted thread needlework industry.

Susan co-authored a wonderful book called “Sibbel, A Needleworker’s Journey” in 2015.  The book is acclaimed in the needlework industry as it took a real antique sampler from Holland and detailed the fictional/inspired journey of Sibbel, the young stitcher who actually created the beautiful sampler.   The reader is showered with beautiful images of the needlework and patterns inspired by the sampler, along wonderful vignettes of culture and history from the time period.

Susan is fun and entertaining, while she helps you learn the how and why to become a better stitcher, while fueling your passion for needlework.
