It’s an exciting day! Today I am announcing a new web site, a new season of Sewing With Nancy on TV, a new book, and my first Blog Tour! Whew, we’ve been busy!

New Web Site

You can see that my BLOG site is much more robust. Not only can you read my latest posting, you can click directly to watch Sewing With Nancy online, look over the products or books I’ve developed, see where I’ll be traveling, join a Sew Along, and watch quick videos at Nancy Zieman TV.

We’re also looking forward to our Facebook comment feature available at the end of each posting.

A New Season of Sewing With Nancy–watch on Public TV & Online!

This week begins my 29th year on TV. (Keep in mind I started when I was 16, hmmm!) Not only can you watch the shows on Public TV, you may also watch new programming at or just click the left tab at the top of this web site.

This season starts off with the first of the three part series on Sewing A to Z. (More exciting news about that topic later.)


A New Book—Nancy Zieman’s Sewing A to Z

My first job after college was teaching sewing classes at a Minnesota Fabrics store in Chicago. Setting up 20 folding chairs in the middle of the store 15 minutes prior to the demonstation constituted my first classroom. Since then, I’ve taught in almost every venue possible with the TV studio being my most recognized classroom.

During the past few decades, I’ve tweaked and personalized many of the common techniques. Many of these methods have been published in previous books of mine, but they’ve never been gathered together in an A-to-Z reference. My hope is that you’ll enjoy Nancy Zieman’s Sewing A to Z and that these techniques will fine-tune your sewing and quilting skills.

My First Blog Tour

To showcase my new book, Nancy Zieman’s Sewing A to Z, and companion TV series, you’ll be able to take a tour through the book via a Blog Tour. I’m pleased to announce that 19 bloggers will be featuring various aspects of the book, starting tomorrow and ending September 9th. I encourage you to follow along and participate in the Book Tour.
