Her comment is: The world and the especially the sewing world is by far a much better place because of Nancy. It surpasses words when you try to define what an amazing lady Nancy was. Her knowledge and charming personality was contagious. She wanted to make things easy and fun and Nancy’s legacy is inspiring. I recorded her shows and watched over and over to learn new things.
Happy New Year
