One of my grandmother’s long time favorite shows was Sewing with Nancy. Whether it was on her long-running TV series or her series of how to sewing books, Zieman taught both beginners and advanced sewers a better way to sew. Originally going on the air as a cable show in 1982 and on Public Television in 1985, it continues to be aired by Public Broadcasting Stations around the country through 2017.

For now you can find episodes, blog posts of trips, and a goodbye message on her website with Wisconsin Public Television.

Nancy gives the highlights of her life story from her autobiography, Seams Unlikely: Her face droop is because she suffered from Bell’s palsy as an infant and 4-H saved her by teaching her sewing and self-confidence to speak in public and share what she knows.
