    I have this book. Nancy’s story is so heart-wrenching yet so hear-warming too. Her challenges and the grace she showed while battling through them is so empowering. She was a truly wonderful person. I wish I could have met her. Thank you.

    I cannot get enough of what this wonderful woman did for homemakers/students/male&female with her television shows on PBS. The longest running show and it still keeps playing. To have a book on how she managed to create (PBS CREATE) her show and such a wonderful insight to get to the TV world of sewing/quilting/embroidery would be fantastic. I wish they would make her show an hour. The only great thing is that there is YOUTUBE and her website that is available 24/7. Keep posting as there will be new people to catch her on PBS and have the same interests and will start on her website and emails. Thank you.

    I didn’t start sewing until 7 years ago but was well-acquainted with who Nancy Zieman was and what she accomplished. My mom met Nancy at an event in Florida a number of years ago and asked her to autograph her sewing A-Z book for me – as a new “sewist.” My husband gave me Nancy’s Seams Unlikely for Christmas and I truly enjoyed Nancy’s story. I would love “The Rest of the Story.” –

    I still turn to Nancy for help when encountering difficult projects, or as a reminder when returning to an to a rarely used skill. It saddens us that she was taken so young. She made all our lives better.
