For a chance to win a copy of Nancy Zieman the Rest of the Story—A Memoir of Faith, Family, and Friends, published by Nancy Zieman Productions, LLC, please leave a comment below. One random winner will be selected.

 The randomly selected winner of the 10-20-30 Minutes to Recycle Jeans book from Nancy’s Notions from the March 12 and 19 blog posts is Christa Martin.

Her comment is: Thank you for the opportunity to win this book by Nancy. I sew almost every day and Nancy inspired me to begin making quilts about 3 years ago. I have now made over 30 and I enjoy the process so much that I hope to make many more. I have several pair of old jeans that I’ve been saving and trying to decide what make with them. I’m sure this book would inspire me to sew them into great new projects

Happy Sewing,

Team Nancy Zieman
