The Kaffe Fassett Knitwear and Quilt Exhibition – Bath, England.

I’ve just been enjoying a trip to Bath. On one of the days we visited the Kaffe Fassett exhibition, which was, to me, spectacular. This post is heavy on pics but I simply could not choose what to leave out so please enjoy the feast…

This is the entrance hall, which was very pink like everything else in the exhibition – a riot of colour.

  1. what a delicious post! How I wish I could have seen it in person…my dear cousin lives in Frome so I am sure she was able to go as she is a quilter. Have a question…the hats in the one case..were they knitted and then covered in buttons?

    • Yes, they do look difficult to knit, don’t they; even if you are experienced. Lots of geometric patterns, which I found quite masculine. Suited him though.

    • It was a real feast for the eyes Tina and very inspiring as a knitter. One of the walls was touchy, feely so we could look at the back and feel the softness of the yarn. Apparently his stitching work is not all that neat! but I don’t think that matters.

  2. Oh, I love these pictures! I have several of his books and have made at least one quilt inspired by -his — a Nine-Patch with many different red prints — such fun.

    • He’s quite inspirational, isn’t he. I like that he uses the colours he likes and doesn’t worry about too bright, too many, too gaudy or whatever!
