When I was asked to be part of the first ever Fabric Fest in Las Vegas this September 9–12, I couldn’t turn down the invitation. I so enjoy sewing with Riley Blake fabrics; they’re fresh, fun, and colorful. So, I know that this event will be equally exciting.
Preview of my Fabric Fest Seminars
I’ll be presenting two seminars during the Fabric Fest. Here’s a preview of what’s included in my little talks!
Creating a Business—One Stitch at a Time
In 1979, I took out $500 from a savings account, closed the same account since it was empty, and started a mail order business. Three years later I began hosting and producing a cable TV show, Sewing With Nancy, when (thankfully) most people didn’t have cable TV. I’ll share how meager beginnings turned into successful ventures. There will be lots of storytelling, sharing the highs and lows—giggles and grins of over 30 years in business. (Below is the first Nancy’s Notions flier, 1979!)
Sewing With Nancy’s Favorite Tips
I’ll also share my favorite sewing and quilting tips and techniques. Learn tried and true handbag sewing tips, ways to super-size quilt blocks, plus innovative accessories that can easily be created in an evening or two, including the featured Trace ‘n Create Hobo Tote, made with Riley Blake fabric.

My staff and I are currently working with Riley Blake Designs Geekly Chic fabrics. How cute are these! Tell me what you’d make with these great fabrics and have the opportunity to be the random winner of a 1 yard cut of each of these three designs.
Bye for now,
