|Nancy Zieman, 1937-2017|
Facts You Didn't Know About Sewing With Nancy Zieman2. She authored over 40 books (including an autobiography), designed notions for Clover Needlecraft Inc, designed a line of fabric and sewing patterns, authored an interactive blog, and founded Nancy's Notion catalog (which was always my go-to place to find the hard to find notions I wanted).
- 3. In 2001, she was the first elected member to the Sewing Hall of Fame (didn't know there was a Sewing Hall of Fame?? Me, either!!
- 4. Nancy's face was partially paralyzed by Bell's Palsy which she developed due to an ear infection as a toddler. She was always open about the condition and talked about it on her show.
- 5. Charity Projects were a heart felt passion with Nancy. Not only did her and her husband Richard give quietly through the years, she also inspired others to give with her blog's page - Sew To Give where you can find several organizations to sew for. Nancy often said, "The Gift is in the Giving".
She got me started on the sewing path. such an inspiration. There is an excellent interview with her on the while she naps podcast. I think it was in the spring but a search will find it. She talks about starting a business before the internet when it was mail order and starting Nancy’s notions, the Pbs show. I highly recommend listening. Thank you for the tribute. I believe she is flying with the angels on quilted fabric wings .
You know I thought I had put a link to that exact interview in my blog sometime back. I know I listened to it once - but wouldn't mind listening again. I thought she was amazing and I always ordered from Nancy's Notions.
Thanks for the tribute and more information on Nancy Zieman. She had a profound impact on so many of us, all the while with her humble spirit of sharing.
I too will greatly miss Nancy, for I have followed her on PBS since she began her show. I still share things I learned from her back then and give her the credit. We were blessed to have her as a teacher.
