About a month ago, I came across some photos of the new Tammis Keefe Tribute line from Michael Miller Fabrics. I flipped! I’m a Tammis Keefe fan, a fan anything retro (no big surprise there), and a huge fan of Michael Miller Fabrics. I wrote what could only be described as a fan letter to the folks at Michael Miller and they agreed to send us some of the fabric! Consequently, SvS will be celebrating Tammis Keefe for the next 3 weeks!
Starting next Monday, January 24th, Sara and I will be posting a new project made from Michael Miller’s Tammis Keefe Tribute fabrics. We’ll post at least one new project everyday through Tuesday, February 1st. On Wednesday, February 2nd, we’ll pick our favorite projects and let you pick the winner of Challenge No. 12: SvS Celebrates Tammis Keefe.
Also on February 2nd, we’ll start accepting entries into our very first giveaway! We are giving away a total of 8 yards of Michael Miller Fabric’s Tammis Keefe Tribute fabrics. Yes, I said 8 yards! We may have a couple other prizes in there, too. Be sure to check back on February 2nd for details. In the meantime, if you want to get a head start on your entry, be sure to become a follower of Sara vs. Sarah and like us on Facebook!
Did I mention that all royalties from this great line of fabrics go to cancer research? It just keeps getting better!
So, who is Tammis Keefe? Tammis Keefe was a brilliant mid-century textile artist with a singular whimsical style and off-beat color palette. Her career lasted only 16 years, from 1944 to 1960. She may be best known for her handkerchief designs which became collectors items almost as soon as they were released. You can read more about the life and career of Tammis Keefe at Kathy Miller’s blog Making It Fun.
We’ll be posting more information about the work of Tammis Keefe during our three week celebration. Please contact us if you have photos or other information you would like to contribute.
Sara and I would like to express our appreciation to Michael Miller Fabrics for making SvS Celebrates Tammis Keefe possible! Pin It
