Before you tube, craftsy, blogs and all the online ways of learning, there was sewing with Nancy. She taught us how to sew and became our friend. Her program is by far the longest running sewing series on tv and still on PBS today started in 1982 - 36 seasons recorded! She also started a sewing supply mail order company called Nancys Notions back when you actually ordered and recieved stuff thru the mail!
Recently Nancy announced that she will be retiring due to health issues. Read about it here on her blog.
she will be truly missed.
If you are interested in hearing a really good interview with Nancy go to While She naps and listen to the podcast interview here. I highly recommend it as she talks about how she started out back in 1979 with Nancys notions and dealing with various hurdles along the way. You will leave with a huge admiration for the woman as I do.
On a higher note, the champlain valley fair was last week and both me and my mom both won one of these!
My mom for this beautiful lone star quilt - best pieced workmanship.
And me for my camels hump landscape - best machine quilting.
we each won a whopping 20 bucks 👀 But then its not about the money its all about the glory, right?
