Kaffe Fassett is a god, it’s ‘craft’ that got smaller.

I seen the first Kaffe Fassett exhibition a lifetime ago, it’s one of those life changing things that you get warned about. I have always been intrigued by his role in the craft industry I think because he is about making “patterns” and this means that “you” can knit your own or quilt your own or cross stitch your own version of his designs he has been denied recognition of just how incredibly important he has been in craft skills revival and as educator of colour. Now I could be wrong and perhaps down south or what ever part of the world your are in there is non stop chatter at the dinner table about the impact of his work. But I think I am right here.
It’s Kaffe’s world we just live in it.
