Kaffe Fassett Lecture & Workshop

We're so excited to welcome Kaffe Fassett and
Brandon Mably to StitchCraft!


If you get our newsletter or follow us on Facebook, you've probably seen that Kaffe Fassett is coming to StitchCraft on October 2 and 3, 2014! Kaffe will be giving his inspiring lecture on Glorious Color on Thursday afternoon, and holding an all-day workshop on Friday based on his Mediterranean Hexagons quilt. We hope you can join us for one (or both!) of these very special events with one of the most celebrated artists around today!

Glorious Color Lecture


Kaffe will start his south Florida visit with his "Glorious Color" lecture, which include a Q&A session and book signing.

The Kaffe Fassett lecture is designed to inspire and motivate. The presentation highlights works from his latest projects, including his patchwork quilt, fabric, needlepoint, mosaic, painting and knitting designs. A tremendous amount of Kaffe's inspiration comes from his continual travels and his lecture is designed not so much to instruct but to empower and inspire the audience to create and develop their "mind's eye." Audiences leave invigorated - entranced by Kaffe's sense and use of color; they are ready to try it themselves and are encouraged to do so.
When: Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 2 PM
Where: Via Mizner Country Club, Boca Raton
Cost: $25. Light refreshments will be served.


Mediterranean Hexagons Workshop


Featured in Kaffe's brand new book, Mediterranean Hexagons is a study of using mostly a single color. Pick any color you prefer and when choosing your fabrics don't stray too far from that color. For example if your color theme is RED, bring reds, oranges, reddish purples. The original version is a study in blues and includes purples and greens.
"Mediterranean Hexagons" from Quilts in Morocco


This is a rare opportunity to spend the day with world famous textile and color gurus Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably. The class will focus on selecting, cutting and designing your quilt.  You will be arranging your fabric pieces on a design flannel that you'll just fold up at the end of the workshop, ready to take home and sew. (There will not be sewing in this workshop).  A Kaffe Fassett "shop" will be set up at the classroom to purchase any fabrics you may want to add to your design throughout the day.
When: Friday, October 3, 2014 from 10 AM - 5 PM
Where: Boca Raton Community Center
Cost: $200, plus supplies. You must purchase a copy of Quilts in Morocco*. Lunch, refreshments, and design wall are included.
