Many of us have heard of Kaffe Fassett (pronounced like safe asset), but what do you really know about him? He has had a lifelong fascination with fiber, color, and making things with his hands…needlepoint, painting, rugs, knitting, and quilting. Today we all love his fabrics, but where do his ideas come from for designing those fabrics? How does one go about designing fabrics featuring parasols, pencils, shirtings, ombre, and those giant flowers?
I bet you thought I was going to answer those questions for you. Well, I’m not.
Instead, we will let Kaffe tell you himself during his program as our keynote speaker at AQS QuiltWeek™ in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Kaffe will be giving us those answers during his program, Dreaming in Color, on Wednesday, March 13th, at 7:00 p.m. at Steinman Hall in The Ware Center/Millersville University. Steinman Hall is right downtown, just a couple of blocks from the Convention Center.
There is a parking lot directly across the street from The Ware Center where you can park; you can also park in a nearby parking garage, or park at Clipper Stadium and the AQS shuttle bus will pick you up, take you to The Ware Center, and take you back to the the Clipper Stadium parking lot after the program. The shuttle bus will also pick you up at the Queen Street entrance to the Convention Center for those staying at the Marriott at Penn Square or other nearby hotels, and will return to the Queen Street entrance after the program.
Seating is limited for this event, so don’t delay in getting your tickets.
