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.

Theater, Festivals and more!

 

For lovers of theater, there are several companies to choose from in Asheville. One is the highly respected North Carolina Stage Company.

Flat Rock Playhouse was designated The State Theatre of North Carolina in 1961. The state’s longest running Shakespeare festival is operated by the Montford Park Players, who stage the Bard’s plays all summer, for free, in Montford Park in downtown Asheville. Asheville Community Theatre keeps a busy performance schedule all year long.

If festivals are more your fashion, the Dry Ridge Inn is a delightful place to decamp from.

It’s a quick zip to Black Mountain, where for nearly two decades the Lake Eden Arts Festival (pictured) has been attracting people who love its spirited celebration of music, dancing, healing modalities and regional and world folk arts.

asheville-artsAsheville’s annual Greek Festival ushers in fall with heaping platters of pastichio ( a steaming baked casserole of ground beef and macaroni). The HardLox Jewish Food and Heritage Festival in October serves up tall corned beef sandwiches on rye, as well as delicious potato knishes and latkes.

Beer-lovers won’t want to miss the Beer City Festival in June or Brewgrass in June, one of the largest beer and music festivals in the region. Both feature the best of craft beer made by the many breweries in – and outside of – the area.

If you still have any energy after all of that, don’t forget the Mountain Sports Festival in Asheville, a weekend in May full of culture, athletics, music, food, drink and more.
