OSuzannah’s
Add to Trip

Susan McRae’s journey in fiber art started with doll clothes and a $22 rigid heddle loom from Sears & Roebuck. Above all else, she is a maker. When she’s not weaving, she can often be found dyeing vintage and new textiles in her indigo vat in order to transform them into art pieces for the wall, scarves for personal adornment, functional and decorative items for the home, and bags or totes for a multitude of uses. In 2013 she opened OSuzannah’s Yarn in downtown Morganton. Almost immediately it began to evolve into her working studio, surrounded by a yarn shop. On any given day she might be found weaving at one of her looms, helping a customer plan their next knitting project, teaching a class in slow stitching using recycled fabrics, dyeing vintage fabric in an indigo vat, or making jewelry using vintage beads and pendants.

Visitors to OSuzannah’s will find yarn and quite a bit more. The front portion of the store contains a gallery of Susan’s work and vintage textiles for sale. The walls of the shop are lined with many textiles and baskets Susan has amassed over a lifetime of collecting. Some of these items are for sale along with supplies for knitting, crocheting, and weaving. Classes are offered in weaving, knitting, dyeing, and stitching.
