Jackie du Plessis was born and raised in South Africa. An art teacher by profession, she immigrated to the United States in 1995. She began her journey into the needle arts at a young age with the guidance of many talented women who passed along their love for needle art.
Shortly after moving to the United States, she opened a finishing company under the It's Fine-ally Finished trade name. She soon developed and expanded into creating and designing projects with the focus of teaching finishing techniques. She has taught for many organizations, both national and international.
Some of her work has been featured in Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly and Just CrossStitch magazines.
Jackie is passionate about her love for all needlework techniques and is tremendously fulfilled with passing on her knowledge to fellow stitchers and encouraging them to create and finish projects. To view some of Jackie's projects, visit her website: www.ItsFineallyFinished.com.
