Sassy Jacks Stitchery’s
First Fall Fling
With Susan Greening Davis
Saturday, September 30, 2017
We are so excited to offer you another wonderful class with Susan Greening Davis. Susan brings us “My Lil Cutie” in two color variations. Beautiful beachy “Caribbean” colors and warm wonderful “Prim” colors, both of which are close to my heart; one reflecting my stay in St. Croix in the USVI, and one reflecting the warm vintage feel of home in Asheville. YOU get to choose Your color J Or both if you are so inclined J
A bit of pre-stitching is required on this one, and Susan and I will offer some individual (In shop with me or online with Susan) help in navigating through this part, although you will likely dive in and finish it right up without our help… but please pretend to need me anyway 😉
We’ll come together at Sassy Jacks Stitchery on Saturday September 30th to finish up any remaining stitching and to move into the finishing of the beautiful little purse. The finishing of this beauty is wonderful!! It includes custom made side pieces (all the way from Italy) that pull it all together and make this a truly unique addition to your stitching treasures… or a very generous and thoughtful gift to a friend.
We’ll meet in the morning where you’ll have a chance to shop at Sassy Jacks and find some wonderful unique vintage items in Susan’s Boutique (needlework treasures she’s collected from travels all over Europe) as well as some of her wonderful self-finishing kits from prior teaching engagements.
We’ll have class in the morning , break for lunch on your own (wonderful places within walking distance on Main Street in Weaverville), and rejoin in the afternoon for the rest of our class.
Fall in Asheville is a magical time of the year… You will want to spend a few extra days here in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
This class will be limited given the space in the shop and the intimate environment we’d like to offer for you to receive hands on instruction on the finishing technique. Please do sign up early, as when we are full… sadly… we will have to close the class. The shop will be closed this day so you have the whole place to yourselves. Cost for the class and kit is only $80.
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.
