KAFFE FASSETT ARTISAN TRUNK SHOW

March 15 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:30am, repeating until March 25, 2018

The KAFFE FASSETT ARTISAN TRUNK SHOW features a master’s handcrafted world of color and design expressed in simple, yet bold, quilts, garments, cushions and accessories, all made with the Kaffe Fasset Artisan fabrics. The Artisan fabrics have been a dream of Kaffe’s, inspired by his travels. This trunk show will inspire you to mix and match the entire Artisan range of 100% cotton prints, hand-dyed batiks, yarn-dyed woven and Ikat fabrics into your own works of art. Come enjoy Kaffe Fassett’s world of vibrant color and bold patterns! Make the Drayton Hall Artisan quilt in class on Saturday, 3/24, and try your hand at mixing and matching Kaffe Fassett Artisan fabrics or make up the one we have on display with the Artisan 1 Sunny/Blue Fat Quarter Bundle. 

Since 1981, Kaffe has worked closely with Rowan Yarns in Yorkshire, whose insight into fashion and color perfectly complements Kaffe’s skill. Together, they have produced ambitious designer patterns to inspire hand knitters all over the world. He contributes to the bi-annual Rowan magazine, which is marketed worldwide. A large part of Kaffe’s output is now an expanding range of fabric prints for the patchwork market along with the Indian stripes fabric and shot cotton fabric range distributed worldwide by Rowan fabrics.

In 2013, Kaffe was awarded the Turner Medal, presented by the Color Group (Great Britain) to a distinguished artist or art historian to honor Britain’s greatest colorist. Kaffe also has authored numerous patchwork and quilting books.
