If I could draw like this, I'd be famous- and Susan does it all with textiles!
You'll be amazed at her talent if you browse through her Sample Album.

Susan Lewis has a 30-year history in fabric art, having provided uniquely designed pieces for Nieman Marcus, I Magnin, and numerous boutiques in the San Francisco area. She now resides in Blue Lake (nearby!) with her poodle, Juno, still sewing and tending a garden any horticulturist would envy, and supporting her favorite animal causes.

A pair of requests for Ms. Lewis jackets, personalized to owners pets, caused us to renew our relationship with this local artist and we've decided to go about it differently! Browse through our album of Susan Lewis Samples for ideas- special orders are welcomed, as are photographs of your pets for personalization. As Ms. Lewis creates new items, we'll include pictures for reference.

Unfortunately Ms. Lewis has no computer, but you're welcome to ask ME for quotes on items inspired by the album. I'll relay pricing information and put you in touch with the artist directly should you decide to proceed.

Please use a credit card for special orders so you won't be charged until your purchase is ready to ship.

SL: Fabric Art Jacket

SL: Fabric Art Jacket - Click For EnlargementJust finished for Christmas, this jacket was ordered by one woman with a passion for her whippets, her Chihuahua, a white kitty with different colored eyes, and lotus blossoms! Do visit Ms. Lewis' Sample Album highlighted above to see four views where everyone's included.

Ms. Lewis' wearable art sells for much higher prices at luxury boutique Kati Koos in San Francisco, but can be special ordered here for $500.

Because these are costly items which we don't have to actually stock, Northcoast Greyhounds will not use the normal keystone markup, but will contribute $100 of the cost of each jacket ordered to Greyhound Support Transport - helping to move Florida greyhounds to new homes in non-racing states.

Price: $500.00


SL: Tablerunner

SL: Tablerunner - Click For Enlargement

Finished just in time for one holiday order, this tablerunner measures 94" X 20" and features the dogs described by our customer. It also uses her specific choices in design colors. Note that it's viewable from both sides of the table and is signed by Ms. Lewis in the upper right-hand corner.

I had to use some Photoshop tricks to show you the entire lengthy piece- if you'd like more or bigger pictures, just ask! You are welcome to order your own, but please give Susan several weeks to create it for you....

Price: $400.00


SL: Christmas Stockings!

SL: Christmas Stockings! - Click For EnlargementOh MY! The brocades... the satins.... the velvets... each one of Susan Lewis' Christmas stockings is a masterpiece in itself! These three were created from the photographs of the three dogs of a single client.

When an order is placed, i follow up with an order form so you can add your own personal touch to Susan's artwork. Please use credit card rather than PayPal when ordering- we won't process a charge until your stocking is ready to ship - Note shipping charges will be accurate- these will ship UPS.

Price: $250.00



SL: SPECIAL ORDERS! - Click For EnlargementMs. Lewis is delighted to fill special orders like these:

* The baby bib on the left was created for a greyhound owner as a shower gift for a pug-owning vet tech who has been providing special attention to greyhounds for 13 years!

* The 12" X 18" wall hanging on the right was created as a thank-you gift for a close friend with NO greyhound experience, who fostered Bravo, a parvo-puppy through the worst of times. Now in his permanent home, Bravo wanted to thank her for loving him through his difficulties.

If you would like to create an especially memorable gift or award for a deserving friend, just email us your photos and ideas so we can discuss color preferences and pricing.
