About 20 years ago I bought the book: Kaffe Fasset at the V & A, knitting and needlepoint. A very beautiful book with stunning photographs. I knitted a few sweaters, using his persian poppy motif with my own yarn and colors. I got lots of compliments. After some years I started a psycho-social study and had hardly time left to knit. At the beginning of this year somebody admired my old sweater, so I told her about Kaffe Fassett. Then I looked him up on internet because he disappeared from my view for a long time and was pleasantly surprised how much he has done all these years. All these beautiful colors hit me right in the face and made me very happy. By searching everything about him I came on a site of a quilt shop in my hometown and to my great surprise read that he and Brandon Mably were going to give a masterclass in my hometown Deventer (Netherlands).Can you believe it!
So I met Kaffe himself and Brandon ofcourse and we had a great lecture and masterclass. Thats why I was very interested and curious about his home and got this fabulous book. Its like wandering around in a fairytale, looking at all these colors and marvelous collections. It is a great inspiration. A must have for everybody who loves Kaffe Fassett and for those who are a bit afraid of color.
By the way, all of his books are a work of art!
