2013 Award Finalist

Having entered the 2013 Craft and Design Selected Awards, I have been lucky enough to be chosen as a finalist in the Textile category. The specialist judge for this category is Kaffe Fassett; 


'Kaffe Fassett, best known the world over for his brilliant textile designs, is a renowned author of over 30 books on colour and inspiration in design. His work is mainly knitwear, printed fabrics, patchwork and needlepoint.
Kaffe is widely acknowledged as a visionary in the use of colour and was the first living textile artist to have a one person show at the Victoria & Albert Museum followed by a 6 part TV series on Channel 4 called 'Glorious Colour.'
He is the primary fabric designer for Rowan knitwear, Ehrman Needlepoint and fabric collections for Westminster fibres.
Kaffe's time is divided between travelling the globe lecturing and giving workshops and working in his Studio in North West London. For more information visit- http://www.kaffefassett.com/Home.html'

So not long to go now until the judges will be making their decision and the winners will be notified in May.

Eeekk, fingers crossed...
