Overview

Millions of women learned to sew while watching the inimitable Nancy Zieman on public television's, "Sewing with Nancy." Many of them have Googled phrases like "stroke Nancy Zieman" in an effort to discover the reasons behind the partial paralysis of Nancy's beautiful face. Viewers purchased products Nancy used through Nancy's Notions, followed patterns she created for McCall's, and enjoyed meeting distinguished guests via the show.

Now, Nancy takes her viewers behind the scenes of her life. She shares about the Bell's palsy that not only affected her appearance, but also her esteem and physical abilities. Readers learn about the growth of Nancy professionally: from addressing catalogs at the kitchen table to growing a multi-million dollar notions business - and personally: marrying Rich, then growing a family through birth and adoption.

Through it all, the picture emerges of a hard-working woman who overcame various and varied obstacles to become what she is today: successful, skilled, gracious, and loved by millions of viewers.

    Interesting

    While this book is interesting for anyone who follows Nancy on PBS, I found it a little dry and repetitive. I would recommend it to another sewist, but with that caution. It is not an "I can't put it down" book. Nancy has had an interesting life, and is to be admired for what she has accomplished.
