Christmas Fete 2017 Dec 9th, 2017

Sassy Jacks Stitchery’s

First Christmas Fête

With Susan Greening Davis

Saturday December 9th, 2017


Fête – To celebrate or honor with a festival, a feast, or an elaborate entertainment.

We are so excited to invite you to our very first Christmas Fête!! Susan Greening Davis will join us to teach a beautiful custom class featuring a sweet little boxette…

Susan has created a “boxette” different than any other one you’ve ever seen! It is stitched using two different colors of linen, Valdani perle coton, Gentle Art Sampler threads, and the sweetest (handmade, painted and rubbed) little deep red colored table…sort of! You will create the boxette and then secure it onto it’s 6 inch square stand.  Just the most fun!

There are a few specialty stitches and some fabulous finishing techniques.


We’ll be decorated for Christmas and invite you to wear your festive/fun Christmas attire (your interpretation – Have fun!!) and join us for a wonderful little Christmas Fête here in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

We’ll begin class at 9:30 am with doors open at 9:00 am.  Lunch and treats will be provided and we’ll stitch until the late afternoon.

Susan always delivers a fabulous self-finishing project for us and this will be no different…  You will love all the tips and tricks to help you stitch AND FINISH a beautiful piece of unique needlework.

Cost of the class including your kit and lunch on Saturday is only $95 due upon registration.  This class is limited to the first 30 people to respond.  This is a beautiful and unique project.  If you are interested… please go ahead and register to reserve your spot.

I hope you are able to make this first of many wonderful Christmas Celebrations with Sassy Jacks Stitchery and Susan Greening Davis.  Susan is a very unique Needlework instructor;  trained by some of the most talented Needlewomen in the world.  She is a wonderful resource and just flat out fun to stitch with.  I’ve shared some of her bio below for the Newbies.

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.
