 At Sassy Jacks Stitchery

Friday Afternoon August 14th and  Saturday August 15th,  2020

We are so happy to bring Susan Greening Davis back to Sassy Jacks Stitchery this year with a wonderful new project for you.  Susan has long been known in the Needlework Industry for her self-finishing projects and her extensive knowledge of Needlework Tools, Fibers, and “Gadgets”.  She was our first instructor at Sassy Jacks and we consider her to be “fully tenured”!  We hope to have her back every year she can make it.  If you’ve never had a class with Susan, you are in for a treat.

Susan’s 2020 class features a choice in colorways, and you need to let me know at registration what your colorway choice will be.  Because of the kitting requirements, no refunds will be offered.  If you find that you are unable to attend, we’ll mail your full kit and instructions from Susan right after the class.

Colorway #1 – Delicate Rainbow

Colorway #2 – Royal Blue

Colorway #3 – Red

Colorway #4 – Delicate Turquoise

Colorway #5 – Southwest

Colorway #6 – Deep Rich Purple


This workshop will be a gorgeous sampler of speciality stitches finishing into a beautiful chatalaine featuring wool from a wonderful shop in Germany.  Also a bit of vintage ring weaving with all the history that Susan’s gathered from her studies with some of the world’s finest Needlewomen.  This is really a beautiful project and I hope you’ll join us.

Registration is now open by email only at

Come join your friends in Asheville for a wonderful weekend full of stitching, laughing, learning, and the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  I invite you to drop in at Sassy Jacks Stitchery Friday morning anytime between 9:00 and 11:00 for a special welcome and open house.  We’ll be opening the shop only for you from 9:00 am – 11:00 am, and  open to the rest of the world at 11:00 am.  You’ll find lunch on your own at one of our many nearby restaurants and join us for class at 1:00 pm.  We’ll have a little snack break in the afternoon and stitch until 5:00 pm or so.  We’ll provide Pizza from Blue Mountain Pizza for dinner around 5 pm, or you can visit one of our great local restaurants here on Main Street and then return for stitching with us until 9:00 pm.  Class for Saturday begins at 9:30 am with doors open at 9:00 am.  Lunch will be catered on Saturday,   and we’ll stitch again until the late afternoon.  We’ll bid fond farewells in time for you to enjoy dinner with friends or family in the beautiful surrounding area.

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.

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.

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.
