    I have a granddaughter at 7. She loves beeing together with me while I am sewing. «i sew for fun» would be a great inspiration for sewing with my granddaugther.
    Your videos and your books give me pleasure, knowledge and inspiration.
    I feel sorry about Nancy Zieman’s death. She was a great teacher.

    What a gift to leave a legacy such as Nancy has done. This would be great to help my two granddaughters get into sewing, quilting and embroidery. Both of them have a touch of artistry in them!! Such a great beginning!!!!

    I miss Nancy and continue to watch her shows and videos any time I can. I have a granddaughter who has shown an interest in sewing but we just haven’t connected yet. This gift would be a perfect way to show her she can start smaller and doesn’t have to sew a huge quilt like Grammie does. Your website is great appreciated, Nancy. ❤️

    So cute! Such eager learners! Simple projects with fun fabrics and successful results – what little person could resist?

  • Teresa Alva

    I love the simple yet beautiful projects. I am looking for a way to get my grandchildren interested in something else besides their computers. When they hear my sewing machine going, they always come to see what I am making. The projects are a great introduction to the wonderful world of sewing.
    It breaks my heart that Nancy’s granddaughters no longer have her.

    I’ve been watching Nancy since our pbs station started playing her shows. There are so many reasons to watch. I think the greatest gift is the inspiration & enthusiasm she shared throughout the years.

    How precious it is watching Nancy with her grandchildren sewing. Thanks for sharing “I Sew for Fun”.
    I’m teaching my granddaughter how to sew. Our first sewing project was a pillowcase. The second project, to earn the Girl Scout Silver badge, we made cage covers, thirty-five, donating them to the Humane Society. Had lots of fun, the memories are the best. I will continue to teach her sewing and Nancy’s book; I Sew for Fun, may just have our next project.
    Thanks Nancy for all your years of teaching.
    Prayers and Blessing for Nancy’s family.

  • Jane
    November 30, 2017

    This is a great way to give memories, and to give children skills and confidence they can carry their whole lives. What a great collection of choices, wiith pictures, to begin working with young girls and boys (sewings machines have motors, and a young man in U.S. Army basic training with my husband made “pin money” because he knew how to sew on buttons and make minor clothing repairs).

  • Linda P.
    November 30, 2017

    Great ideas to share. I’m hoping one of my grandchildren will have my love of sewing.

  • Joanne Miller

    I loved my sewing classes in school, and that was my start.
    But due to budget cuts schools no longer have sewing classes. My granddaughter is 5 and I hope to start her love of sewing. The book would be a great help!

  • Judy

    Nancy’s book would be great to share with my granddaughters who have been asking to learn how to sew.

  • Susan Miller Walter

    I have a granddaughter who is old enough to start sewing but attention span dictates that projects be easy and fairly quick to finish. Everything in this book meets those goals. Would be very nice to win this for her.

    I have 4 granddaughters, ages 8 – 3-1/2, so I see a lot of hours spent sewing with them through the coming years. I would love this book to guide me as I help them gain a love of sewing and quilting. Nancy Zieman has always known how to make the art of sewing seem more simple.

  • Jeanette
    November 30, 2017

    I’ve sewn for years, making clothes for myself, husband and 2 sons. Now my daughter-in-law is pregnant with her third; which is her first girl, I’ve given her my second sewing machine and it will be so much fun sewing together for fun!!

  • Donna Fecteau
    November 30, 2017

    This is an awesome book. Wish I had it when my kids were little but hopefully will get to use it with my grandchildren.

  • Ruth Senn
    November 30, 2017

    What a wonderful gift for Nancy’s grandchildren to have this time with her, something they will always remember. I will miss Nancy so much! My 7 yr old granddaughter has been begging me to teach her to sew and these programs from Nancy will be good motivation for me. I plan to put together a sewing kit and some kid-friendly fabrics for her Christmas present.

  • Joan
    November 30, 2017

    What a joy to see Nancy doing projects with her granddaughters!
    Her “I Sew For Fun” line is wonderful. I hope it will grow as her memory and love live on

    I teach after school sewing classes and have for the past 30 years! I just love it. I have always been inspired by Nancy and her sewing techniques. Especially when it comes to children. She was the best!

    I watched the video this morning for “I Sew For Fun”. I love seeing the little ones so excited to learn. I think my favorite was the little boy being SO excited about his new cape and dancing around wearing it. SO cute.

      As with everything Nancy did, this book shows the best approach to use while teaching a young person the JOYS of SEWING.

    I am an adult leader for a girl’s service organization. I try to teach them a sewing skill every chance we get. It is so great to see their faces light up when they finish even the easiest project. These are girls 8-20 years old.

  • Jan bos

    Would love to win this book because my granddaughter just received a sewing machine that belonged to her great-grandmother and I would love to teach her with some of these projects.

  • Frances Bobo
    November 30, 2017

    I would love to win this to teach my grands how to sew and leave them with a legacy they can teach their children someday. To instill in them how to sew will help them in so many ways, from hemming a pair of pants to fixing a seam or replacing a button.

  • Beth Harbourt

    This would be great for my eight year old daughter who is always nearby me when I am embroidery by hand. Having a guide to help teach her would be great.

    My heart still hurts from the news that Nancy had a short time to live and was retiring — and then, in a very short time, she was gone. She was inspiring as a teacher of many sewing skills and also an inspiration as she faced her final days. I never met her, and yet feel like we were good friends!

  • Kate Irwin
    November 30, 2017

    I would love to win this for my almost 8 year old daughter who adored Nancy. This will be a nice for her to have to to remember Nancy.

    Nancy always found the cutest projects. I’m too late for the grandkids but would love to encourage the greats with these and to show them it is the most fun ever. Thank you TNZ. Keep up the great work.

    I loved watching the I SEW FOR FUN episode with Nancy and her granddaughters. The book is on my list-just like Nancy, I sew with my grandchildren too.It’s such a wonderful tradition to pass on AND a great way to make memories. Thank you, Nancy and NZ Productions , for sharing this special moment with us.

    My grandsons 9 and 7 live in Canada and visit me each summer. This year the 9 year old asked if he could sew something on my machine. I had him make a small tote bag but he wants to make so much more. Now the 7 year old asked if he could sew next summer. Your book would be full of great ideas. Thank you for the chance to win a copy.

    I have the privilege of teaching my great grand daughters to sew. The timing of this new series is perfect.
    Nancy indeed is leaving a wonderful legacy.
    I have had the wonderful opportunity to follow and learn
    from Nancy, from basics to actually a small home based
    alterations, business over the years.
    What an encouragement to me and thousands of others to follow their dreams. Now the door to open to a new generation once again. Thank you to all who supported her!

    I saw this show not long after Nancy passed away. It was so heart warming to see her with her grandchildren but at the same time, I cried through the whole show. I know how much she will be missed by me and I never met her. I can’t believe how those grand babies and the rest of her family feel. My prayers are with all of them. May God bless them and help ease their pain and help them be a comfort to one another.

    I was looking forward to seeing this episode. I heard it was the last one she did. And since it was with her granddaughters it is extra special. RIP Nancy, we miss you.

  • Melody
    December 1, 2017

    Nancy will be missed. I have watched her shows over 20 years. My first sewing book was a beginners book. I bought that book in a bookstore in the 1990’s. I have been sewing since. I saw her do a show on machine embroidery on a Babylock. My first sewing/embroidery machine was a Babylock Ellure Plus. Now I have a Babylock Aventura. She has taught me a lot. I have bought Clover products because of her suggestions. I figured if she is sponsoring the company then the products must be one of the best. She has taught me so much with sewing and embroidery that I have opened my own custom business.
    I will miss you Nancy. RIP!

  • Cheri L Thornton-Conner

    I was shocked and devastated when I heard of Nancy’s passing. I love this idea of sewing with children. One of my granddaughters wanted to learn to sew at the tender age of 7. She now has my mother’s “antique” sewing machine to learn on (the one I learned on, too!) Singer 503A Rocketeer. I wish we lived closer so I could work with her myself.

  • Catherine H.
    December 2, 2017

    I had watched Nancy’s sewing programs on Saturday, then when my husband retired and I was still working, I had him tape the shows that was on Wednesday. In the evening when he was watching whatever I did not care for I viewed Nancy’s program that aired on that Wednesday. I have enjoyed her programs and her teaching style. I am sure as much as we the audience will miss Nancy her family’s loss is so much greater.

  • Jan Pedrotti
    December 3, 2017

    I was shocked to hear of Nancy passing away. She’s been a big inspiration to me with all the teaching and ideas I received from her show. Would love her book! My grandchildren are all learning to sew and this talent will never be lost!

    I was shocked and saddened by Nancy’s death. I have watched her show for years and learned a lot. I record the shows and refer back to them again and again. I too have an almost 3 year-old great granddaughter that loves learning anything, so sewing will be our next project. The book would be a great help. May God bless Nancy’s family and give them comfort .

    How I have enjoyed Sewing “with” Nancy all these years. She brought me back to sewing as an adult. I too am a 4-H alumnus and always enjoyed it when she slipped it into the show.

    I was fortunate to meet her once at a two-day seminar in the Denver area. She was exactly as seen on the tv, lovely and gracious. Sewing altogether will miss her.

    I do not have a small child but my nephew is reaching his young daughter how to sew. This book would be great for them.
