What are Sassy-Wraps?
Sassy-Wraps are beautiful, luxurious scarves, handmade from the finest Italian and French specialty ribbon, using a technique I developed. Each one is different and they are all designed to showcase the beauty and texture of the ribbon. From simple and subtle to simply outrageous, each exquisite neckwrap is a wearable work of art. Scarves are THE must have fashion accessory right now - and Sassy-Wraps can be worn year round, they are very lightweight, even for summer. If you enjoy standing out in a crowd and not blending in, these are for you- everyone will notice this "one of a kind" addition to your wardrobe. The Darling Diva Collection will satisfy even the most discriminating fashionista ~ wrap yourself up in one and you will feel like a goddess!!
My passion for fashion was inspired and encouraged by my Mother, who gifted me with my first sewing machine and taught me to sew at the tender age of 5. ( see picture) Mom was an accomplished seamstress and her expertise provided invaluable instruction as I learned the craft. Before long, I started making clothing and accessories for myself, and have been doing so for over 40 years. Regardless of what I have made and worn throughout the years, nothing has ever generated more buzz than these scarves. After numerous inquiries about how to obtain one, in 2009 I launched Sassy-Wraps and was excited to offer them for the first time in a public venue. I set up a Sassy-Wraps Facebook page. Later in the year I added this website, and did a couple local craft fairs. Everything I needed (all supplies, materials, and finished product inventory) fit in 2 big boxes, which I would drag around with me wherever I went.
3 years later~
Today, I work in a fully equipped design studio; a beautiful and functional space where I often spend 12-15 hours a day, blissfully surrounded by exotic ribbon and losing all track of time. I love what I do, and I'm doing what I love for the first time in my life, and I truly believe that is necessary for any business to prosper.
In just 3 short years, I am thrilled that Sassy-Wraps are now available in more than a dozen galleries and boutiques throughout East TN, and in Asheville, NC . See our Facebook page for details about each location.
I am so grateful for women all across the country who share my enthusiasm for Sassy-Wraps. You validate me as a fiber artist and inspire me to continue to grow as a designer to accomodate your needs.
From Beverly Hills to Church Hill, Hot Springs to Palm Springs, Mt Carmel to Mt Rushmore- Ultimately we all want the same thing- to put something on that makes us feel pretty. I love watching someone try on a Sassy-Wrap for the first time and looking in a mirror - her face radiates with a softer expression, posture improves, and an air of confidence is exuded almost immediately. Those are the most gratifying moments for me. One lady exclaimed "I feel like a movie star with this on!" Bravo~ I've done my job.
