Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably Came to Quilting Mayhem
Quilting Mayhem always works to bring you the best sewing machines, projects, and classes. This October, however, we took our commitment to bringing you the best whole new level by hosting an event that brought the international quilting world right to our doorstep in Snohomish.
Quilting with Legends
On the weekend of October 8th, 2023, Quilting Mayhem welcomed Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably for a rare in-person event. It’s not often we get to welcome two of the quilting world’s brightest stars! We had classes, lectures, and all the fun stuff planned for the weekend. And did it deliver.
Our whirlwind weekend started with a lecture and presentation from Kaffe Fassett himself. Kaffe shared the nuances of his designs and his creative journey. We also set up a pop up shop full of vibrant Kaffe goodies for everyone to take home a little bit of extra inspiration including his latest book, “Quilts by the Sea.”
And for the most excited Kaffe fans, we were able to offer something extra special: Quilting Mayhem made sure to give everyone who had a Kaffe Special Edition BERNINA the chance to get them signed by Kaffe Fassett. We had a couple of machines in stock in the store that Kaffe was kind enough to send before he left so you could still take one home. Your machine is sure to stand out from the crowd the next time you go on retreat!
There was so much color and quilts and creativity, that we couldn’t keep it inside Quilting Mayhem! As a special touch, Kaffe and Brandon painted a fun quilt mural on the side of the shop.
Stay Tuned for More Mayhem
We witnessed an overwhelming response with both of our classes selling out rapidly, and the remaining slots for Kaffe’s lecture filling up just as quickly. To those who managed to join us, we were so excited to see you there! And to those who couldn’t join us, don’t worry! We are hard at work figuring who the next national teacher will be that we’ll bring to you at Quilting Mayhem. Make sure you’re on our newsletter list here to find out first, and check our calendar here to see what we have scheduled already. We always have something fun brewing at Quilting Mayhem.
