Meet the designer...
Kaffe Fassett has the distinction of being the first living artist to have a one-man show at England's prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum. The native San Franciscan's love affair with needlecrafts began when he stumbled on a collection of Scottish yarns. Though Mr. Fassett is one of the textile world's legendary talents, he makes even the most sophisticated designs easily accessible to stitchers of every skill level. Mr. Fassett lives -- and quilts with pleasure -- in London.
