Sewing With Nancy has been on PBS for over 30 years. Gosh, it really doesn’t seem like that long. I love what I do and hope that through sewing education, you also love what you are creating, no matter what stage of learning you are in. Each day I wake up thankful that you are part of my life. Thank you for watching!

Nancy Zieman web

My show is produced by Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) in Madison, WI. WPT hosts content from the Sewing With Nancy program and you can watch ALL of the episodes free! There are over 270 demonstrations available to you anytime online.

I thought it might be fun, today, to share the three top-viewed Sewing With Nancy videos.

Number One: Free Motion Quilting for Beginners (Part One)

Free-motion quilt with ease—it’s fast and fun! Learn to free-motion quilt on your sewing machine and you’ll never look back. Nancy and guest Molly Hanson show how to quilt like 
a pro and create finished projects without using a long-arm machine.

Number Two:  Sew Simple with Rectangles & Squares (Part One)

Nancy creates time-saving gifts such as a cosmetic bag, tote, and luggage saddlebag using comparable sewing steps, straight stitching, and double-sided quilted fabric. Plus, all of the projects start with easy patterns—rectangles and squares!

Number Three: The Absolute Easiest Way to Sew (Part One)

Over the years Nancy tweaked sewing and quilting steps to make them easier and for the best looking results. In this program she shares some of the easiest ways to lay out, cut, and mark fabric; sew darts; gather four different ways; and add elastic. Whether you’re a new sewer or looking for a refresher class, these techniques are the easiest!

    You taught me everything. Thank you for over thirty years! I have watched you since the beginning and have learned so much. Thank you for making me a better sewer, for giving me the gift of sewing but mostly for letting me be me.

    Hello Nancy, Thank you for your several years of wonderful teaching and inspiration. I have been sewing and mending for many years, and have learned much from you through your PBS telecasts along with your informative books! I love to sew, and it heartens me now to hear my seven year old granddaughter say the words, “Gamma, will you teach me how to sew?” Of course I will! Thank you again Nancy for sharing your creative talents. Sewing for me is a stress-buster! All the best to you and yours.

    I admire you so much for making a life work of doing what we all love so much—using our sewing machine. Because you taught all of us, we proudly fill our lives with the sewing, quilting and embroidery that was ready to die out until you came on the scene. Thank you so much, Nancy, for keeping our hobby / lifetime goals alive!

    Really enjoy watching your show online as there are no craft and quilting shows on Australian T.V. Martha Stewart appears sometimes and that is it. So glad we can watch online.
    Any chance to get an Android app for your show?

    Glad that you love what you do because it has guided my sewing years.
    As I was cleaning out ‘stuff’, I was having trouble ‘dumping’ my video cassettes of Sewing with Nancy. I no longer have a player to watch them but could not part with them – just in case. Now that you have said that all episodes are on PBS, I can let go of them. Thank you Nancy!

    Little tricks of the trade is all we need sometimes. One guest you had on gave me a better and faster way to make welt stripes and she was the ” accessories purse lady, you showed me how the feed dog used to take up more stitches when it was a sleeve that needed to be fitted, and I have made numerous gifts with triangle and squares .
    Thank you so much for dedicating your talent for the benificary of others.

    Keep up the good work

    Hi Nancy

    I have been a long time fan. I really appreciate that you visited eastern Pennsylvania in 2012. There was a video in 2009 called Magical serger Techniques. Will this video be available online?

    Nancy * As you go forward and have more shows for us to watch and learn from, have you thought about re-runs? You will be around for many years. What a great gift you have and are sharing with us. Maybe I should begin purchasing all your data to hand down to my great great granddaughters. Thank you*

    I too would like to say “Thank You” Nancy for all your work and contributions for keeping this art form alive and well. Whenever I want to learn a new skill I always check out your videos for the best approach and wonderful hints or go thru all your old booklets that I own and would never part with! I looked at the date on my booklet and it was 1990. Yikes!

    Dear Nancy,
    Like many others, I have been watching for over 30 years. Your techniques and shows are always first-rate. I have many of your books and refer to them often. I sincerely hope your health and PBS will allow you to continue for many more years.

    Nancy, I have learned so much from you (not just sewing) with your confidence and style! Thank you. I cannot get your shows on Maryland Public TV, although I have requested them. I am glad you offer them free online and have watched many as part of your blog. Thank you for making them available. I send my best regards and happy thoughts! Karen

    Thanks, Nancy. You have been my sewing inspiration for many years, but I taught school so I only had time to sew during summer vacation…that is if I didn’t have to teach summer school. Needless to say I was really excited to finally start really learning to sew once I retired. I am so glad that I found your show on TV. I still need to learn to use purchased patterns better, but I’ve gotten pretty good at using a well fitting dress to make my own pattern, thanks to your simple instructions. I’ve even gotten pretty good at designing my own clothes using some of the methods you teach. I’ve also been able to make several baby crib quilts and baby blankets for my great granddaughters. After seeing what I can do, a few of my friends have started asking me to make one for their grandchildren or daughter’s babies. God bless you as you continue to inspire us all.

    I have been with Nancy for at least 25 years. I started as a doll maker and am now, currently, a quilter. My one anxious dream is to make a landscape quilt. I have watched your shows on such a few times but I can’t get up the nerve. I think they are so pretty and reflect the outdoors which I love. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and now live in Michigan. Keep up the good work and I hope your medical problems have been solved.

    I have been watching your programs for many years. When embroidery machines became available I recall you embroidering on a Pfaff 7570, the next year I went to Sewing weekend and purchased a classroom machine. Since then I went on to teach classes at our LQS. All of this is thanks to you and your programs. Thank you Nancy for everything. See you at Sewing weekend!!!!

    Thank you for the timely post! I’ve loved watching your shows, and listening to you present at the Sewing Expo in Puyallup. In fact, my mother and I always look to see if you will be there. Miss seeing you, as well as your cohorts in comedy!
    I can’t wait for Saturday mornings just to catch your show. Thanks for all of the great education and sewing tips!

    I have watch you for years and I have to give you credit for my sewing ability today. I’m a simple home sewer without much education but feel I’ve gained a wealth of education from your shows. In the past I made my husband suits by watching your program. I remember the years when adding machine tape was our only stabilizer. Today it’s just me but I still watch your show and am still learning new techniques

    Thank You Nancy! You inspired me to take up piece quilting! My favorite – half square triangles! I have been watching your show on our local PBS and have enjoyed it greatly! Thank you for overcoming your many obstacles and sharing and inspiring others. RIP Nancy! You most certainly deserve to.

    May Nancy rest in peace.

    Good folks, I am looking for an episode featuring quilting artists at a Madison Quilting Fair. Maybe in 2019, sometime.
