Concentrate on Color
Lecture/Book Signing with Kaffe Fassett
Get motivated and inspired by acknowledged color master, Kaffe Fassett! Kaffe’s presentation will highlight works from his latest projects, including patchwork quilt, fabric, needlepoint, mosaic, painting and knitting designs. A tremendous amount of Kaffe’s inspiration comes from his travels, and his lecture is designed to empower and inspire his 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! The slide show and lecture lasts approximately 45 minutes, followed by a question and answer session and book signing.

Persian Poppy Design
Knitting Workshop with Brandon Mably
Enjoy a one-day creative knitting workshop with Brandon! This workshop is for knitters who are interested in sharpening their color observation in design and yarn selection. Brandon will give an introduction to the Persian Poppy Design (see swatches in photo). Students will work from the Persian Poppy graph provided. Brandon will demonstrate the methods of carrying yarn in Fair Isle and in intarsia knitting and will work with students as they apply the techniques to their own knitting. Attention will be paid to color, texture and pattern, and everyone will work on a swatch using at least 12 colors. At the end of the day, Brandon will provide feedback to everyone.

Is Kaffe’s lecture filled?
Have a good day.
No, Diane, it’s not full. We have plenty of seats left. We will probably have some tickets for sale at the door, but it would be best to order your tickets online or call or stop by the store. I can’t believe it’s just over a week away!!
I am so looking forward to the class and lecture. I have six colors of yarn. I need to yet purchase six bright colors. Will you have the Rowan felted tweed in bright colors?
Thank you, Kathy
Kathy – I will be bringing several balls of each color Rowan Felted Tweed that we carry. In addition, I will have Rowan Tweed, Colourspun, and Baby Merino Silk DK to the class. I’m sure you’ll be able to find some good choices!
Thanks – Laura
