About Me 

Jackie du Plessis

Jackie du Plessis was born and raised in South Africa. After graduating college with a teaching degree in the arts, she and her husband emigrated to the United States.

While living in South Africa she learned many forms of needle art from creative woman surrounding her including her mother and grandmothers.

Coming to the U.S. provided a whole new source of supplies and a huge opportunity for Jackie to fine tune her talents in designing and finishing.

In 2000, Jackie's business - It's Fine-ally Finished - became a reality and in 2002, she started designing and teaching dimensional needle art projects.

Jackie draws her inspiration from many places including her extensive library of antique books and needlework antiques. Her projects are functional three dimensional needleart objects that feature a variety of interesting stitches and finishing techniques.

She has taught at many venues throughout the United States, England, France and Canada. She loves sharing her artistic and technical knowledge with fellow needle artists and finds teaching her designs tremendously fulfilling.
