Kaffe and his partner Brandon have come to the seacoast area to teach and give lecture/slide shows. Usually they are hosted in the autumn by Gretchen at Portsmouth Fabric and the classes are held at the Connie Beane Communty Center.
I am continually inspired by his use of color and simple designs.
I may own all of his books.
One can never have too many inspirational books.

His classes are no-sewing formats; his students cut and work on a design wall.
Fabric pieces are pinned into place and rolled into the flannel for transporting home.
Kaffe has lived in England for quite a few years moving there from California.
He designs in a range of fiber work from knitting to needlepoint to quilting; and also in mosaics.
From this trip to New Hampshire, he was going to Japan to teach and lecture.
