Seams Unlikely

Hello all, Mary Ellen here.

I’ll bet that many of you have watched Nancy Zieman’s show, Sewing with Nancy, on PBS for many years. (Tuesday afternoons at 2:00 on Channel 17 in this area)  I know that I kind of “grew up” as a seamstress with Nancy, learning so much about all aspects of the craft from her. I started with garment sewing, and used many of her tricks and techniques to make my clothes look very professionally made. She still has many shows for garment makers, and has added quite a bit of quilting to her line up. I just recently went back and watched (shows available at her website) her series on the dresden plate. I have her templates and have made some of her Christmas ideas from that show. I think next I’ll try one of the giant dresdens with some of the latest variegated fabrics I spotted in a local shop. (click here for dresden video)

Nancy has written an autobiography. I’ll let her explain why in this clip. (click here)  I think it’s one that I’ll be reading before too long. How about you? Do you have any Nancy Zieman stories–what projects of hers do you recall fondly?
