March Newsletter KAFFE FASSETT IS COMING BACK TO GOLDEN STATE QUILTING!
Timeless Themes Book Signing & Lecture
with Kaffe Fassett - May 20, 2023
Kaffe & Brandon are returning to Golden State Quilting!!!
Join us for a lecture & book signing event celebrating the release of Kaffe's latest book Timeless Themes on Saturday, May 20th, 11:30-3:00pm at the Starbright Theatre in Campbell.
Kaffe Fassett needs no introduction - a master colorist and textile designer, Kaffe is known for legendary designs and fantastic quilts. And now he’s back with new images, new patterns, and a new look at his most storied designs. Timeless Themes explores the classic, bold patterns that we’ve come to know and love from Kaffe.
Each chapter focuses on a pattern theme from the Kaffe Fassett Collective—whether stripes, circles, geometrics, and botanicals, or wild paisleys and retro zig zags. An archive of Kaffe’s photos, collected over the last 50 years, is presented alongside images of the fabrics they inspired.
An exciting addition to any quilter’s library, Timeless Themes blends the best elements of Kaffe’s life and inspiration, resulting in a fresh look at the designer at work—a must-have for readers everywhere.
Kaffe’s unique sense of color, drive to create and his desire to encourage others, has led to his reputation as a guru in the world of color and textiles. He is a prolific author of books on color and design in craftwork, having written over forty books.
Admission price of $80 includes:
-a copy of Kaffe’s newest book-Timeless Themes and a lecture.
-An opportunity to have books signed will immediately follow the lecture as well as light refreshments.
*books are shipping to the shop in late March 2023 and should be picked up before the event.

SHOP HOP BY THE BAY 2023
Mark your calendars for the Shop Hop by the Bay
June 21-24, 2023 Wed-Sat 10am-5pm
for more information and details.
We can't wait to see you then.
After completing 31 years of the Pacific International Quilt Festival with 28 of those years at the Santa Clara Convention Center, we are saddened to find that Mancuso Show Management has been unsuccessful in negotiating/contracting the Convention Center for our traditional mid-October dates in 2023.
At this time, they are not stating that PIQF has come to an end. Mancuso is working diligently to find an alternative venue or other acceptable dates at the Santa Clara venue.
If you are as concerned as we are, you may want to contact the following people
(Santa Clara Mayor, Council members as well as City Managers) via email to express your dismay as well as expressing what PIQF means to you and your love for quilting and the textile arts.
Your feedback may be instrumental in bringing the show back to the SCCC.
For ease in copying and pasting into the “To” line of an email, here are the email addresses for your use.

Nantucket Zipper Bag Class
Saturday, May 13th, 10:00-2:00 pm
Use several fun techniques to make this cute zipper bag with 2 1/2" squares. You can use mini-charms or cut up 5" charms or jelly roll strips. Straight-line quilting with your walking foot attaches the charm panel to the stabilizer and lining. A zipper foot is used to install the zipper. Boxing the corners adds stability. Zigzag stitching finishes the seams. The free pattern is available on Modafabrics.com (Nantucket Mini-Charm Bag). Samples are available to view in the shop.
