A Life In Colour is the title of the Fashion and Textile Museum‘s showcase on the life and work of Kaffe Fassett. Rachel of The Little Room of Rachell and I went to see it on Saturday morning. It was pure colour overload!

Needless to say I took loads of photos. I suggest you click on the photos in the Gallery to see the bigger version.

This living room scene is too beautiful to be part of the photo gallery above. I would have loved to sit on that needlepoint chair! can you imagine how inspiring it would be to do your crochet day in and day out on this chair?! I’d never want to get up from it.


The exhibition was exactly as Good Housekeeping said: ‘The show feels more like an elaborate stage set or opulent living room than a museum display. …This is an exhibition put together with an eye for drama, colour, pattern and texture – a visual feast served up with a large helping of inspiration. … You’ll come away full of ideas, and itching to pick up a needle or a paintbrush.’

If you are in London, do pop in. The show is running until 29 June 2013. You can even attend “An evening with Kaffe Fassett” on the 27th June which includes a lecture by the man himself, a drink, book signing, and entry to the exhibition.

On a final note, look what I saw on the Rowan Yarns Facebook page. This is the greatest news yet! Kaffe has conquered almost all the yarn and textile crafts, apart from crochet. Until now…
