  • That short video of Erin painting was a beautiful beginning to my morning!

  • Thank you for sharing all these wonderful videos. I can’t wait to spend my evening looking at these. I’ve been a long time admirer of Kaffe, have many of his books and was fortunate to see him lecture at Hart House in Toronto many years ago. Based on your recommendation I bought ‘Making a Life’ and I’m savouring each chapter.

  • Rainy day, sitting threading my loom, this was a perfect listen. Thank you!

  • So inspiring! I live in Monterey, and have been to Nepenthe several times over the years. Will definitely go the exhibit when it opens. I ordered the book too and it was fun to check out the view from the weather cam on their site.

  • This was a wonderful video and really inspiring. What a lovely and unusual relationship between the 2 cousins, it was so interesting to hear how they worked together and positively influenced each other.

  • I would also recommend Kaffe Fasset’s interview on the Vogue Knitting podcast. It was absolutely fascinating.

  • Kay, I hope you will give painting a go – you never know what may enhance or enrich other aspects of your creative life. Back when I was a “serious” photographer – exhibiitions and the like – I used to say if I had been good at drawing I might never have become a photographer. But a few years ago I started joining in on some of the twitter art challenges just for fun…and now I’m in my third year of the challenge I set myself: Daily Markmaking. It’s a journey and an oasis, and I no longer think about whether I’m “good at” drawing. Who’d a thunk it.

  • Thank you for this. I enjoyed every minute
