Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably will be touring the United States ahead of the 2024 fall quilt market and their first stop will be Cotton Candy Fabrics! As a Kaffe Fassett destination shop, we are pleased to offer a lecture / presentation and two workshops.

Power of Color Lecture and Presentation at the Ridgefield Playhouse on 9/21/24

Join famed Free Spirit Fabrics designers Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably for an afternoon of color on Saturday, September 21st! The Kaffe Fassett lecture will inspire and motivate you, featuring items from his latest museum exhibition, The Power of Color, as well as quilts from his upcoming book, Kaffe Fassett's Quilts on an English Farm. The presentation will also feature Kaffe's latest projects and collaborations, including his patchwork fabric, needlepoint, mosaics, painting and knitting designs. 

Kaffe's inspiration comes from his and Brandon’s travels throughout the world. This lecture and presentation is designed to empower and inspire you to create and develop your "mind's eye," and ready to experiment with color yourself. 

Ticket price for the lecture includes a copy of Kaffe's upcoming book, Kaffe Fassett's Quilts on an English Farm. Kaffe and Brandon will sign books for lecture attendees after the presentation concludes. Cotton Candy Fabrics will also feature a kaffe-tastic pop-up shop of Kaffe Fassett Collective sample quilts, fabrics, kits, precuts, accessories and more!

Tickets now available directly from Ridgefield Playhouse.


Country Snowballs Workshop with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably


Join us on Sunday, September 22nd for an all day workshop to make Kaffe’s traditional snowball quilt block that is made fabulous by his colour choices. In this workshop, with Kaffe and Brandon’s guidance, you will create your unique Country Snowball Quilt. 

Choose your fabrics with an eye to the colour or mood you wish to explore. Keep your choices harmonious. For example, if you would like to explore RED, bring reds, oranges, reddish purples, magenta, warm brown, etc. 

This workshop includes the full day of instruction with Kaffe and Brandon, refreshments and lunch, two yards of Kaffe's Flannel Grid Wall, and a Kaffe Fassett Reducing Glass.

Seed Packet Quilt (Workshop Variation) with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably

 

Globally, Kaffe Fassett fans have enthusiastically embraced his Seed Packet Quilt, and now you can make your own with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably at Cotton Candy Fabrics on Monday, September 23, 2024. It’s sew much fun to search out bold blooms from your stash and shop for the latest blooms and fruits. Designing and sewing a Seed Packet Quilt is like planting a garden: browsing the catalogs (stash & LQS), planning the lay out and planting the seeds (working with Kaffe and Brandon and cutting the squares) and watching it grow (sewing your squares,) and finally reaping what you have sown/sewn (wrapping yourself up in your new quilt.) No sewing takes place during the workshop. No sewing machines needed.

The original Seed Packet Quilts is sumptuously photographed in Bold Blooms (pages 68, 69, and 147). In addition, Kaffe, Brandon and Liza have recolored Seed Packet twice more to feature fabrics available at the time. The most recent version may be found at FreeSpiritFabrics.com. 

Choose your fabrics with an eye for them to create a harmonious arrangement. They should go together well - perhaps most will have a similar background or same level of brightness. 

This workshop includes the full day of instruction with Kaffe and Brandon, refreshments and lunch, two yards of Kaffe's Flannel Grid Wall, and a Kaffe Fassett Reducing Glass.
