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.
