The Special Work of Sassy
I was totally won over when I first saw the beautiful yarns and their colors when I visited Sassy's shop: http://www.sassalynne.etsy.com.
Her work has evolved into many different realms; from the beautiful threads and yarns, which she dyes herself, to her felted fabrics which she also dyes herself, creating some beautiful pieces with the help of her embellishing machine. Her other shop, http://www/WinifredCottage.co.uk,
One of her talents which really amazes me is the working with felt. The whole process of how she creates her felted fabric is done with an Embellishing machine. If this isn’t enough to keep her busy, she also finds time to teach courses and workshops in the UK. Sassy teaches various embroidery techniques using some of the embroidery threads which she sells from her other shop in England, “www.WinifredCottage.co.uk”. For most of us, myself included I couldn’t begin to find enough hours in a day to complete half of what she does. Yet Sassy also manages to find time working on her “Paper Patches” which are cards using patches of abaca tissue which she again hand dyes and prints herself.
