Nancy Zieman the Rest of the Story - A Memoir of Faith Family and Friends

Nancy Zieman The Rest of the Story—A Memoir of Faith, Family, and Friends

by Richard Zieman

ABOUT THE BOOK

Nancy Zieman touched the lives of millions as they stitched alongside, or simply tuned in to watch, the inimitable Nancy Zieman and guests on Public Television’s longest-running sewing show [35 years], Sewing With Nancy.

Nancy_and_Richard_Zieman_at_Monet_Gardens

For the first time ever, Richard Zieman shares an intimate look into life with his beloved wife of 40 years, Nancy. Just like all of us, at times Nancy endured seemingly impossible circumstances and challenges. Richard shares insights into being a caregiver, and the blessings of support from family and close friends, during the almost four months Nancy was in Hospice care. Readers learn the physical battles Nancy faced, especially during the last five years of her life, while always retaining her faith and rising above it all.

Nancy_Zieman_The_Rest_of_the_Story_DVD

Included within the book is a DVD showing Nancy’s life and the vitality in which she lived and how we all should remember her.

A moving and inspiring account of an unexpected journey with life’s final challenges.

Nancy Zieman The Rest of The Story Book Blog Tour Badge

 Nancy left us on November 14, 2017, and almost immediately people began requesting the story of the final years of her life. One might expect that those five years were filled with sadness and pain—and there was a lot of that—but in those years Nancy also kept looking and planning for the future. She never stopped dreaming or creating.

As Nancy’s life on earth neared its end, she made every effort to make it possible for those of us who remain to move on without regrets. She cleared the slate of any unfinished business with family, friends, and colleagues, leaving nothing to stand between herself and those she loved. She helped us move closer to God and enabled us to face ourselves and our coming loss with grace and dignity.

    A gracious, generous, Godly woman. I will miss her wonderful teaching skills. I only met her once, but she was everything I believed she was. Funny, self-deprecating, and so knowledgeable about all forms of sewing. There will never be anyone like her. She is missed.

  • Janice Still
    October 15, 2018

    I bought this book and found that this woman, Nancy, was a very courageous woman. I cried through the book, imagining some of the pain that she had to endure. Her videos never showed her in pain, which she must have had, but yet made the time to film those educational videos for us. Her husband, Richard, went through a lot, too. I have the utmost respect for them both. Get the book- you’ll love it and cherish Nancy even more.

    How I wished that I had found Nancy’s show sooner. How I wished I had the chance to meet her. But how grateful I am that I grew and continue to grow from her knowledge. I still miss her daily.

  • Sandra Sikes
    October 15, 2018

    Loved watching Sewing With Nancy. She taught me a lot about sewing. She was very talented and inspiring. I have to say she was brave, courageous, smart, talented, and so much more. She went through so much in her life but never gave up. A lesson we should all follow. Will miss her dearly. Will continue watching Sewing With Nancy as long as it is on the air. Love you Nancy and miss you. Be blessed her family and friends.

  • Judith Spencer

    I loved Nancy! She was the most generous TV personality. She shared her heart with passion and love with us. She encouraged us to tape her shows so we could reference them as often as needed. I have many of her books and she will always be number one in my sewing go to. She may be gone from this earth but for all sewers she will live on forever. God bless her family!

  • Marie

    Nancy was such a important part of my life. It was her program that instilled in me the love of sewing. I would always make sure that I watched her show, her sewing tips and the time she took to explain ways to make sewing easier became part of my sewing habits.
    I miss her.

    Nancy was such an inspiration. Her creative abilities were outstanding. I still love watching Sewing With Nancy.

  • Karen

    Nancy “kept me company” while I sat and nursed my 5 children. I enjoyed watching her program and learned many things from her. I had learned to sew when I was young in 4-H but learned to sew better after watching Nancy.

  • Martha
    October 15, 2018

    Not enough time today to visit all those blogs (preparing for tonight’s quilt guild meeting), but just want to say I watched Nancy via internet since we don’t have a television. I learned so much from her and appreciated her kind approach, soft humor and creativity.

    Nancy was an inspiration to me in my sewing life and I miss seeing her live on “Sewing with Nancy” but still record all of her episodes that are still shown on PBS.

    I have enjoyed Nancy since I was young mother and learned so much from her. My sister and I both watched from our diffeerent homes and discused the program. I felt Nancy was my sisteer too. She will always be in my heart. Love you.

  • Deb Regner
    October 15, 2018

    I just commented last night to my husband that I miss Nancy. I was reading a different author’s sewing book that didn’t have very clear explanations and the photos were hard to decipher. Nancy always made everything so clear and easy to follow. “Bye for now”, Nancy!

  • Debbie Beauchamp
    October 15, 2018

    I know Nancy’s husband and family miss her beyond words because even those of us who knew her only through the air waves realize the world is different without her physical presence. Her faith and testimony and love of sewing will live on until Jesus meets us in the clouds. I can almost picture Nancy’s work space in Heaven where she works while looking forward to being reunited with her loved ones. I believe her courage came from the Lord and she encourages me to this day.

    • Susan
      October 15, 2018

      Loved watching her show and seeing her in person at Puyallup for the Sew Expo. My friend won her prototype pin cushion for machine needles and gave it to me since I always watched her shows. What a treasure!!

  • Linda
    October 15, 2018

    I miss her. I always think about her on Saturday, when her show comes on. I have been watching her since the beginning. I am 61 now and she was/ is a part of my life.

  • Donna
    October 15, 2018

    I loved watching her tv shows and continue to watch them. She was very generous with her tips and ideas for sewing. I have purchased many of her books after watching the show.

  • Lynn
    October 15, 2018

    Nancy and I had many things is common: age (13 days difference), Midwest small town childhood, 4-H, views on marriage and family life. I was privileged to meet her at sewing events and still learning from her tv shows.

  • Ruth
    October 15, 2018

    I watch and re-watch shows with Nancy, and I’m continuing to learn from her.

  • norma stone

    Her book of her life and other books on tips on my favorite. Would love to win the book.

  • Savannagal
    October 15, 2018

    Nancy was so amazing. I learned so much from her. I watched her shows and followed the blog so much that I felt like I knew her personally. There are some people in life that touch you so deeply that it’s hard to move on without them. Nancy is one of those people.

  • Cheryle Fisher
    October 15, 2018

    I started watching Nancy’s show when I was a young married woman who wanted to sew better. I had taken Home-Ec in school, but my skills were poor to say the least. Through Nancy’s show and catalog of notions and books I eventually sewed most of the clothes for myself and my daughter. We are both tall and at that time selection was non-existent in retail, so I sewed for us. Nancy was a true inspiration for millions.

  • Marilyn Napper
    October 15, 2018

    Nancy was like a friend I never had a chance to meet. She inspired me to learn to sew. I purchased many books and dvds written by her and various guest hosts.

  • Cheryl Johnson
    October 15, 2018

    I felt a closeness to Nancy because we were basically the same age, started sewing in 4H & unfortunately shared a diagnosis of beast cancer too. She signed the first serger I purchased. I still enjoy her program & I work with many projects from her books. She truly is missed.

  • Evelyn
    October 15, 2018

    When I watch Sewing With Nancy every Saturday I still cannot believe she is not standing there in person encouraging and teaching us. I believe that as long as we have the programs, she is with us. I hope PBS will always show Nancy’s programs. Thank you, Nancy, you give me courage to face what I face every day.

  • Kristen
    October 15, 2018

    Nancy inspired me to keep sewing, even when life got busy, with her 10-20-30 minutes to sew concept. I refer to her books often and am so glad my PBS station is playing “the Best of Sewing with Nancy” every week. I miss her.

  • Jeri
    October 15, 2018

    We never met, but I felt I knew her. I watched her shows for most of the years she was on TV. I cried when I read her farewell letter, I felt I was losing a good friend. I have many of her books and DVDs, notions, etc. She had a very easy way of teaching, so easy to understand. My sympathy to her family.

  • sue mango

    Always loved Nancys shows.

  • Barb K.
    October 15, 2018

    I admired her calm and patient teaching style–she made you want to slow down and enjoy the process of what you were doing–and be proud of the result! She was a wonderful gift to the sewing world and to everyone she interacted with!

  • Jearit Grennan
    October 15, 2018

    Thank you Richard for finishing Nancy’s book. Like you we still miss her. It is hard to look at her smiling face knowing she us gone. But what a wonderful testimony she has lived. I know I will see her again. Can’t wait to read the new book.

  • Debbie Hair
    October 15, 2018

    I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Nancy in person many years ago. Talking to her one on one was an amazing opportunity. It’s a memory I won’t forget.

  • Wendy
    October 15, 2018

    I had the privilege of talking to Nancy a number of times at various sewing events, and she was always gracious and kind. I miss her.

    A few years ago I went to Washington for the Puyllap Sewing Expo and got to visit with her. She was just as lovely in person as on TV.

  • Carolyn Prentice
    October 15, 2018

    Nancy was my friend to sew with, I love to watch her shows and feel I have a friend with me. I worked a lot as a nurse and sometimes my time off did not match my friends so Nancy was my sewing Friend. I learned so much from her and what others were doing for their community. She truly taught so many of us. Thankyou so much for spreading her story. Very Sincerely .Carolyn

  • Helen Wicklander
    October 15, 2018

    I have read Nancy’s book twice and now Richard’s book. I could not put those down and will continue to remember her for all that she did for the sewing industry. What a wonderful teacher she was and I have learned so much from her. She was a wonderful inspiration. I regret never having the opportunity to meet her in person. Her faith kept her strong in spite of much suffering. What a blessing she was to so many people.

  • Tina

  • Mary Green
    October 15, 2018

    Nancy was my friend when we first moved to Fort Worth, TX and I knew no one else. We sewed together and I learned so much from her…more than simply the steps to construct a garment. Her caring corner showed her compassion for those less fortunate as well as mentoring of young women. She has touched the lives and hearts of more people than we could ever imagine. She was a very special woman. God bless you, Nancy.

  • Jean Guenther

    Nancy was a beautiful person. I loved her smile and sense of humor.

  • Karen Poole
    October 15, 2018

    I was very blessed by Nancy. Seeing is my passion and my stress reliever and I learned so much over the years from her show and her books. She is gone so soon but the Lord is taking good care of her now and she is no longer in pain! She is dearly missed.

  • Jane Burg
    October 15, 2018

    I have been sewing for probably 55 years and loved watching Sewing with Nancy. I learned many time-saving sewing skills and well as many advanced sewing skills from Nancy. I met Nancy several times at her annual Sewing Weekend and at the the Quilt Expo in Madison. Although I can’t say that I personally knew Nancy, I felt a deep sadness when I learned of her cancer and then of her passing. Her love for sewing and desire to share what she knew was rare. Most people these days want to share only part of what they know, but not Nancy, she seemed to want others to know what she knew and celebrated others accomplishments. She is what many may call a diamond in the rough, a true gem, and will be very missed.

  • Michelle Hall
    October 16, 2018

    I loved watching Nancy on her TV show and learned so much from her. I had the pleasure of meeting her in person several times and she was always as nice in person as on TV. She is missed by many people

    Nancy was a wonderful teacher. I watched PBS and savored her techniques and wonderful samples that showed the steps of her garment and quilting projects.

  • Cheryl Seal
    October 16, 2018

    With the challenges of now being a caregiver for my husband, working a full time job and having an adult Asperger son, I still try to find some time to watch the Sewing With Nancy show. I have my DVR set to record every episode which I watch religiously regardless of how many times I have already seen them. Nancy sewed like me and I love to watch and listen to her explain the techniques she developed and used. She has been an inspiration to me as a sewer and simply a person of faith. She will always be missed.

  • Christa
    October 16, 2018

    There are so many Sewing With Nancy episodes that I love that it would be hard to pick a favorite. Right now I am making travel bags and zipper bags for family and friends. Nancy’ episode in which she made travel bags that fit over the handle of rolling luggage is a pattern that I am using to create gifts this Christmas. Thank you for all of your help and inspiration NZP.

    I have collected many quilt books and supplies over the years. I own a few of Nancy’s. I retired last year, but couldn’t quilt due to an injury that happened at my school where I have taught for 25 years. I am still recovering and managed to take 2 quilting classes this past year. Still need to machine 1uilt them. Can’t wait to try Nancy & Pat Sloan’s books. I am just starting my life into quilting at 60 yrs old.

  • Anne Lawver
    October 16, 2018

    I was a faithful fan of Sewing With Nancy and had the honor of meeting Nancy once. My favorite story about Nancy took place in Mississippi. We had twin boys as neighbors. Rambunctious 9 year old boys, often unappreciated for their energy. They visited often and came into during a Sewing With Nancy show. Immediately, they quieted and sat down to watch. It was a weeklong marathon and I noticed they ‘stopped by’ everyday to watch Nancy. On Friday, I told them tomorrow would be the last day of the PBS marathon and asked if they wanted to learn to sew. They looked at each other and the louder of the two said, “No, we just like watching Nancy. She is just so…so…so nice. We are trying to be like Nancy.” My heart melted! I thought, “You are so wise. If only we could all be more like Nancy.”

  • Nancy’s sewing was/is a great inspiration. I love her all the more for her faith and grace. I’m looking forward to this book.

  • Susan
    October 16, 2018

    To pick a favorite episode of Sewing With Nancy is impossible. Her creativity and her ease of presentation instilled confidence in her viewers that no project seemed impossible. I continue to enjoy the show as they are timeless.

    I watched Sewing With Nancy from my late teens and still watch it to this day on her website. She was a master of her craft and just this week I made two items from one of her publications that is one of many of hers that I own. I was blessed to meet Nancy several times at Sew Expo in Puyallup, Washington. I always took her lectures and loved seeing her in the Babylock booth. She was always so generous about having her picture taken with anyone who asked and autographing tickets, books etc. too. She and I even had a laugh once when I took a selfie with her “flat Nancy” poster.

  • carol thomas

    Sewing may be what she taught. Life, family, character, ethics, values, love, sharing, giving, and being humble in the challenges, were how I remember and cherish Nancy.

    I came back to this blog by way of Pat Sloan’s blog. She pointed out how Nancy was full of grace. I named my daughter Nancy because it means full of grace. I loved watching Nancy on TV, and met her once at “Sew Expo” in Puyallup many years ago. I would love to read the rest of her story. I purchased her first book, and Nancy has been a great inspiration. Blessings to Richard in learning to live without her.

    What a great lady! I used to watch her show on our local PBS station. The show was not on for awhile and now it is back again. I am recording every episode. She has taught a generation to sew and will continue to do so in the future. What a wonderful legacy!

    As a young mom 27 years ago, I found Nancy on our local PBS station in Fayetteville, NC. As a result my desire to grow my sewing skills was rekindled along with learning to quilt. Nancy made everyone watching believe they could sew anything and just as well as Nancy.

    Nancy was a beautiful, caring and talented person, whom I greatly admired. Her caring showed on her Nancy’s corner inspiring others to give back too. And her last show with her grandchildren she was passing on her love of sewing to them. How wonderful! They have beautiful memories. May God be with the family and Thank you Nancy sharing your talent!

    I enjoyed watching “Sewing with Nancy” on my PBS channel whenever I had the chance to. She had so many helpful hints and project ideas. I always came away with something. I have purchased some of her patterns. Nancy was a dear, always so thoughtful, and she had a whit about her. Sure do miss her programs in our area.

    Sewing with Nancy was my reintroduction to sewing. As a child I had been a 4-H member and worked on many sewing projects. Sewing was put aside as I went to college and joined the workforce. As a young mother I realized I wanted to make things for my daughter – and found Nancy on public television. I learned so much! I still make things for my children and grandchildren. In fact there is a felt farm set and several “cozy quilts” in progress for holiday presents. And the thanks go to Nancy for bringing me back with her straight forward, easy ways to make a hard project easy!

    I watched Nancy from the beginning – she taught me most of what I know about sewing and quilting, Used so many of her techniques over and over.
    Loved her show. Owned so many of her videos and watched them over and over.

    Nancy’s shows were wonderful, so well-done and informative. I especially liked the interviews at the end and was particularly impacted with the Little Dresses for Africa segment which resulted in our quilt group making over 200 dresses to send off. Nancy was an inspiration to the rest of us.

    I enjoyed each of the shows that I was able to watch. I always learned something new. I was also able to see her in a show in Washington a few years ago. I was surprised to see her in the booth after the show selling and of course I bought something from her.

    Very few days go by when I am not reminded of my love of watching the Sewing with Nancy shows. With my home in Tennessee, it is virtually impossible to have an opportunity to visit the Beaver Dam area, but she seemed to be so approachable that it felt as if she was a good friend. She is the most innovative person to ever sit down behind a sewing machine. Her TV show set the bar that all other sewing themed TV programs strive to reach. She continues to be an inspiration as a sewer, mother, wife and Christian. She is truly missed.

    I read Nancy’s book, which I loved. I have been watching Nancy on PBS for so long, she inspired me to sew because she made projects look easy and fun. She was like a good friend visiting in my living room. My daughters have enjoyed watching Nancy with me and it has cultivated another generation of sewers. We were blessed to have met her in Beaver Dam a few years back. Even though I was SO excited to meet her she gracefully set me at ease, and we had a few special moments. I do/will truly miss her, and am so blessed to have known her.

    I watched Nancy’s programs from the start. It was so educational but always had a sweet side of life that I so cared about. She made us all feel like she had taught us well and that we would love doing what she was teaching. Her book in my library would be treasured. Watching re=runs are great, just miss seeing her sweetness for us all!

    I have been watching Sewing With Nancy every week since I started sewing in 2007. I love all of her programs on quilts but my absolute favorites are her series on Landscape Quilting. I’ve watched those numerous times. Nancy will truly be missed by everyone in the sewing community.

    Memories of Nancy warm my heart because they bring to me memories of my Mom. I grew up with my Mom “sewing with Nancy”. I have some of her sewing books as well – by Nancy of course!

  • Sandra Geiger

    As a young mom myself in the early eighties, I started watching her program on Wednesday afternoons in my area, and Nancy opened a whole new world of sewing ideas and notions to me. She made it faster and easier for me to make clothing for my children, gifts for everyone on my list and decorate my home. This Wednesday afternoon habit of mine was not to the liking of my children who wanted to watch cartoons instead, but they persevered and my daughter and grand daughters now love to sew too. It all comes back around! Thank you, Nancy, until next time…

    I became aware of Nancy by YouTube chance and began using her as a talented and inspirational resource for my quilting and sewing journey. I quickly came to admire her so much, never moreso than when I read her address to her audience telling of her recent diagnosis, bleak prognosis and decision to dedicate her last little time to family and faith. A truly wonderful inspirational woman.

    Nancy was a fabulous teacher and it was wonderful that she was on free public television. I am so delighted to know that she is a Christian and therefore I can actually meet her on the other side of eternity. I most appreciated how she showed us to alter sewing patterns so that clothing fit properly. May her family have the peace that passes understanding in this difficult first year anniversary coming up.

    Nancy inspired me to sew about 24 years ago. I learned some basic machine sewing skills from her and taped some of her episodes. She was a good teacher, and I wish over the years I could have watched her show, but we don’t have tv. I look forward to reading the rest of her story.

    It was great to read the stories from all the bloggers of the times they met Nancy or worked with her. And I learned that there is one more fabric line coming out that Nancy designed! I’ll need some of that for my quilt made from only Nancy’s fabrics. I’m so glad this website continues to be available to re-watch Nancy’s shows.

    I discovered Nancy’s show in PBS when I was a beginner sewer. Her calm demeanor helped give me the confidence to try sewing clothing, pants and shorts, something other than simple curtains and table runners!

    I watched Sewing With Nancy for many years. I always learned something new from her shows. If she used a new notion or tool I knew it was a good one to buy – and buy I did! ha! She touched so many lives. Its nice that her husband has written this final book for us.

    I am so inspired by what I have read about Nancy. What an incredible lady. I just recently took a sewing class and discovered her amazing videos online; was so sad to find out about her battle with cancer. She left a legacy of courage, faith, perseverance, talent and true class. You could tell from her videos that there was something extraordinary about her, beyond sewing; she had a gentle and kind spirit. Very thankful for the guidance and inspiration she has left for beginner sewers like me.

    Nancy, and her show, were an absolute, totally favorite craft/sewing show. I learned more from her in once episode that I do from anyone else. She was so inspiring. She made it truly easy to learn.
