Kaffe Fassett

Is it really possible that looking at fabric can make my heart race so....it does, it really does! Ahhhh I just love the genius that is Kaffe Fassett. I was just checking out his website, and looking at his range of fabrics literally makes my heart flutter....it must be love. Now calm down I hear you say, but please let me explain. I have been following Kaffe's work since I was about 13 so it's no 'school girl crush'. My mum used to drag me along to the Knitting and Stitching show at the Alexandra Palace in London every year to help 'man' her stall (mum designs needlepoint kits based on oriental rug designs - well until she sold the business to become a full-time gypsy - long story) and I would frequently sneek off to wander around the stalls and exhibits and was always drawn to his work. So I am no stranger to his genius. At 13 of course I was maybe just a little less enthusiastic but could nevertheless appreciate the colours, the designs, the visual happiness his work evokes. So the motto of the story, have a look at http://www.kaffefassett.com/ and feel the love, enjoy the visual happiness and most importantly be insprired to create.
