A true heroine


I have to pay respect to one of my biggest and most inspirational mentors. I have learned so much from this woman, which is evident in the tutorial page. But more than what I learned about sewing is what I learned from her about grace under fire. She is an amazing human, decent, kind, and strong beyond belief. I pray that her journey is an easy simple one, blessed by the Lord watching over her and the comfort of her family and friends. Please keep Nancy Zieman in your prayers as she moves on with her life...Bunny

  1. Oh my.... when I very first started sewing I watched her Sewing with Nancy show every week - many many years ago. I have learned much from her.

  2. I've loved her since I discovered her as a young, newly married girl living in the middle of nowhere and certainly with no friends who sewed. I pray she comes out of the battle even stronger. She has been such an inspiration to thousands of sewers.

    I enjoyed the Wisconsin honors orchestra that came on after the Nancy video ;)

  10. It is my prayer that this path in Ms. Zieman's journey, is one that she will look back on down the line, and say "thank you so much Father God, for the grace and mercy you gave, and lessons learned. Do what you have to do, to get better, and please hurry back. There are so many of us with so much still to learn. God Bless.

  15. Thank you, Bunny, for sharing.
    Nancy is an inspiration- both personally and professionally. Her shop in Beaver Dam, WI, is about an hour from my house, and I have enjoyed many classes there.
    Stay strong, Nancy!
