A Special Evening with Nancy Zieman

Hello Blog Friends,

I have been hard at work finishing the quilts I started earlier in the year.  Hopefully by the end of this weekend, the UFO pile will be much smaller. 

I wanted to tell you about a very nice evening I spent last night.  I had the opportunity to attend a presentation and book signing by Nancy Zieman.  I'm hoping some of you have know of Nancy from her PBS program Sewing with Nancy.  If not, you can get more information at:  http://wpt.org/SewingWithNancy.org  or on Nancy's blog at http://www.nancyzieman.com/blog/

Nancy has written a book about her life.  It's not just a chronicle of her accomplishments, but is also a story of how she overcame adversity and physical challenges to get to where she is today.  Nancy grew up in a rural area not far from Winneconne (just SW of Appleton, WI).  The presentation was attended by fans like me and by high school and neighborhood friends from the Winneconne area.

I had a wonderful time and Nancy inscribed my copy of her book.

More next time on those UFOs...
