Sassy Jacks Stitchery

Sassy Jacks Stitchery is a vibrant needlework supply shop with a brick and mortar presence at 30 N. Main Street in Weaverville NC, and an online presence at www.sassyjacksstitchery.com. Sassy Jacks was founded in 2014 to meet the need of the local needlework community in the Cary/Raleigh area, after losing several of our local needlework shops. I LOVE Needlework and handcrafts, and I sincerely want this industry to be alive and well for all of our future generations. I want to pass this love and craft to anyone and everyone who will pause long enough for me to place a needle and thread in their hand!

Sassy Jacks Stitchery provides a wide selection of charts and supplies for cross stitch, needlepoint, punch needle, and hand embroidery.

The original portion of the Dry Ridge Inn was built in 1849
as a parsonage for, what was at that time, the Salem Campground, a religious revival camping area that had been incorporated in 1832.

The surrounding area, which is now know as Weaverville, had been named Dry Ridge by the Cherokee Indians long before the campground was established. During the Civil War the parsonage was utilized as a camp hospital for Confederate soldiers suffering from pneumonia.

The high altitude and pleasant weather of the surrounding grounds made it an ideal area for soldiers recovering from the then-fatal illness.  In 1888, a man named C.C. Brown bought the parsonage, remodeled it, and turned it into a home for his wife and eight children. Reportedly, Brown wanted the tallest house in Weaverville, so the building’s hip roof gives way to additional gables and added height to its peak. Members of the Brown family occupied the home until 1958, during which time one of the eight children, Fred, became the mayor of Weaverville.

As the town of Weaverville grew,
it became a practice for many of the large homes in the area
to take in overnight and weekly guests who were visiting the area,
which had become renowned for the natural beauty
of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains.
