We’re enjoying a heat wave here in London at the moment and we hope that wherever you are in the world, you’re enjoying some summer (or winter) sunshine too!
Our summer kicked off spectacularly this year with the opening of Kaffe’s new exhibition with mosaic artist Candace Bahouth at the Victoria Gallery, in the beautiful historic city of Bath, UK. ‘A Celebration of Flowers’ features a range of quilts and needlepoints from Kaffe’s book – Bold Blooms (published by Abrams). The harmony created between Kaffe’s work with Candace Bahouth’s mosaics makes this is a special exhibition not to be missed, not to mention that the City of Bath is brimming full of delights and well worth a visit for the weekend. More info here.
We’re excited that the Kaffe Fassett rose is now available to buy in the USA from Heirloom Roses – more info here. This beautiful Florinunda rose has an exquisite scent and is produced by the world-renowned Rosen Tantau of Germany – Visit their website here.
See below – a sneak peak of Kaffe’s new book: Quilts in America (published by Taunton), which will be launched at The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham (UK), 9th to 12th August and at Houston Quilt Market 1st to 8th November in the US.
