30 years of Nancy
What a gift Nancy Zieman has been to the quilting and sewing industry.
I have been fortunate enough to work with Nancy many times, doing several episodes on her TV show and working at her wonderful quilt show the Quilting Expo in Madison WI.
It's a special year for Sewing With Nancy—2012 is the 30th anniversary year! The celebration pinnacle is during mid-November with the first airing of the Sewing With Nancy 30th Anniversary Special, 2-part TV series, both on PBS stations and online at http://www.nancyzieman.com
Each of the episodes will be the featured video online for one week, November 11th —24th.(Goes live Tomorrow night) Recorded at Wisconsin Public Television with a studio audience and special guests, Nancy takes a look back over 30 years of sewing, quilting, and embroidering. She shows how things have changed and stayed the same. Video vignettes tell the story—hair styles, fashions, set designs, techniques—they've all changed. What's stayed the same?—the love of sewing and quilting.
To continue the celebration of 30 years of Sewing With Nancy on Television, Nancy Zieman’s Hosting a Sewing With Nancy 30th Anniversary Blog Giveaway Event in November — and you’re invited to participate.
To continue that wonderful tradition I am offering a gift as one of her promotions.
