Kaffe Fassett exhibition-opening night

Kaffe Fassett exhibition at the Fashion and Textile museum in London .....I was in heaven, child in a sweet shop stuff. Opened by Kirsty Allsopp, it was a real feast for the eyes.....I do happen to be a long time admirer of his work (have I mentioned that before?) but you really don't need to be a fan to enjoy this show. It was a mixture of quilts, tapestry and knitting, with a smattering of original paintings for the fabric and mosaic. 
I managed a sneak peek before the opening night when the exhibition was being put together. A mountain of tapestry (do I exaggerate?) were on the floor waiting to be displayed....many I have made from kits. I was soooo tempted to stuff a few in my bag, but these were all from the home of Mr Fassett and I couldn't do that.( his house must be a little on the bare side now)

I met eldest for a meal first as she works round the corner now and then she came with me. Two treats in one night.

I know the pictures aren't great....but this is a treat, so if you can.... go.


  1. I love Kaffe Fasset - particularly the deep saturated colours in his fabrics. This exhibition looks wonderful.

  2. Oh I would love to go, but I've just checked and it closes before we go to London in July.

  3. I love Kaffe Fasset too. The exhibition looks wonderful - must try and get to see it. Going to Chelsea Flower Show - maybe can fit it in then - hope so. Thanks for sharing. x
