Nancy Ziemans online sewing seminar on sewing handbags

I’m a teacher, not in the traditional sense, but one that teaches on TV, You Tube, and at sewing/quilting events. I truly enjoy the personal events, but  I can’t possibly fill all the requests. Trying to fill that void, my staff and I decided to present live, online seminars, called webcasts. Our first webcast this year will be held Saturday, April 26th. The topic: My Favorite Handbag Sewing Techniques.

What’s the difference between Sewing With Nancy and a webcast?

Last week, you might have read the blog that introduced Nancy Zieman Live. A question was asked (I’m paraphrasing), “Why would I sign up for an online seminar when I can watch Sewing With Nancy online?”  That great question caused me to write this blog.

Beam me up Scottie

Last year four of my live webcasts were beamed to several sewing and quilting events. My favorite part was the interaction. Questions were emailed to me and I answered. The give and take was engaging! One of the participants asked to see the studio, which resulted in a camera operator recording a “360” of the studio and showing the control room. The interaction was my favorite part. Plus, if a webcast viewer didn’t understand a technique, I did it again.

Like an in-person seminar, the 90-minute webcast on April 26 will be live without editing or mulligans (i.e. “take 2”)—just me teaching you.

By the way, the webcast isn’t beamed. It all happens through an internet connection. But, I think you knew that! (Test your viewing ability by clicking here. This test link is a live webcast from the nest of a bald eagle! It may take time to load, but if you can see the eagle and nest, you’ll be able to watch Nancy Zieman Live.)

Learn the latest in techniques

As I’m writing this, my staff in the sewing lab is making samples for My Favorite Handbag Sewing Techniques Webcast. All of the new techniques will be available to participants as a downloadable handout. You’ll have these instructions to refer to immediately. Plus, I’ll share my tried and true quick bag-making methods. Some of the techniques I’ll demonstrate include:

  • New strap making techniques gleaned from ready-made bags.
  • Turning ordinary fabric into laminated fabric.
  • Introducing new fabrics that are ideal for bag making!
  • Getting the inside scoop—It’s what’s inside that counts! Updated tips on how to construct a bag, and what to add to the inside of your bag to make it look like a wow bag!
