It seams unlikely but I have been lucky enough to work with Nancy Zieman on several occasions.
Laura W and I have been on her TV show for two different series. We have a book and DVD produced by her company that I am very proud of it.
It is a fabulous book, like all of the products that Nancy produces.
I have come to consider her and her crew as FRIENDS. A rare thing in this busy world.
Laura and I have been featured presenters at the Quilt Expo in Madison and at Nancy’s Notions in Beaver Dam, WI.
Laura and I have taught at the Quilt Expo in Madison, and loved it, and are always treated so well and happy to be there. This too is a real gift.
I have told people all over the world how much I admire and LIKE Nancy Zieman.
She is the real deal, a decent, honest, seriously NICE person.
Caring, giving and kind.
She definitely has the will to succeed, not just for her products or even her educational instruction, but also in life. And her book tells it all so beautifully.
Reading Nancy’s life story is inspiring and interesting.
I found that we had so much in common.
- I was in 4-H – just like Nancy.
- I grew up in the Lutheran faith – just like Nancy
- I grew up in the area where she had her first job.
- I go around giving “seminars” on quilting – just like Nancy did in sewing.
- I have my own TV show – oops not yet.
No wonder that I like her so much.
