Sewing With Nancy Trivia—This photo was quickly taken on the Sewing With Nancy set. Notice the tape on the floor? Those were the positioning marks for Nancy’s chair in the Nancy’s Corner area. The chair had to be moved in order to take the photo. Now you see how they kept the props and furniture in the right place!
