We all have those who have gone before us, paved the way, and in some way manage to inspire us and educate us on our creative path. For so many and for so long, this person has been Nancy Zieman. While the set of Wisconsin Public Television’s show “Sewing With Nancy” has gone quiet and dark, this amazing woman’s legacy lives on! Her body of work will be seen over and over again on television and the internet. Her books, dvds and patterns grace many bookshelves. Not only did she show us how to “make things”, she was a role model for so many in the industry. I had never met her, but would have liked to. We were neighbors. Well, almost. We lived in the same county in Wisconsin. I don’t generally have celebrity awestruck moments, but I would think that Nancy would have been one of those people. If I had run into her at the grocery, I can pretty much tell you that I would have been tongue tied. People of character who are successful and giving are the role models I look up to.
Thanks for sharing your passion Nancy!
