Meeting Kaffe Fassett

I got to meet Kaffe Fassett after his colour lecture that he gave in Cape Town on 15 July 2015. He signed my favourite Kaffe Fassett quilting book: "Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts". He was very gracious. 
I enjoyed Kaffe's colour lecture very much. Brandon Mably introduced him as "His Lordship", which made everyone laugh. Kaffe spoke about his life and how he got to where he is now. He showed lots of inspirational pictures, pictures of things he had crafted and designed, and photos of quilts from his workshops. Afterwards, he held a Q&A session with the audience, I even got to ask him a question about the colours he uses. It was a wonderful evening, which I will never forget. I never thought that I would get to meet Kaffe and Brandon, living here at the bottom of Africa, but wishes do come true.
