As you may or may not have heard, Nancy Zieman passed away this last Tuesday morning from cancer. Her show, “Sewing with Nancy,” was the longest running sewing show on television. She also founded “Nancy’s Notions” which started as a small business in her home over thirty years ago. I think many of us can find at least one notion in our sewing supplies that came from her company.
Back in May, Abby Glassenberg, host of the “While She Naps” podcast interviewed Nancy. During the interview, Abby and Nancy talked about the beginning days of her notions business and how her television show came to be. It’s a great interview and made me appreciate how much Nancy has given to the sewing community. Abby re-released the podcast yesterday in honor of Nancy. The original interview can be found on I-tunes on the “While She Naps” podcast, Episode #97. Or you can listen to the re-release here. I recommend setting aside an hour to listen to it.
