Nancy Zieman signature

As 2023 comes to a close, we’re taking time for a warmhearted and grateful look back at this year’s memorable moments and unexpected milestones. The Stitch it!

NZP 2023 Block of the Month December

In January, we kicked off 2023 with our 2023 Block of the Month Fat Quarter Mystery Quilt Series. On the third Saturday each month, we release a FREE! quilt block sewing tutorial right here at the NZP Blog! As you may know, our 2023 Block of the Month Fat Quarter Mystery Quilt is a mystery no more – as our completed quilt design was revealed, for the first time, in our December 16, 2023 Blog Posting! We designed this year’s BoM quilt along with our friends at Benartex, to showcase the beauty of Bali Batiks. We’ve really enjoyed making this special BoM23 in two colorways and revealing the surprise patchwork heart design! Thank you for following along! And mark your calendars for Monday, January 1, 2024 – when we’ll be launching our 2024 Block of the Month Sew Along Quilt Series! Have you been thinking of making a quilt with our BoM series? The 2024 Block of the Month Mystery Quilt Series will be our absolute easiest BoM ever! We welcome everyone to join in, even if you’ve never before made a quilt!

In January, we recorded our NEW! Stitch it! Sisters Clever Coverstitch Bag Video with Deanna Springer and guest Pam Mahshie, Overlock Business Manager for BERNINA USA.

      I have always loved watching sewing with Nancy. I still watch her shows. I am so thankful that you are doing the blog. And now the show stitch it. Nancy’s memory will live on in our hearts. She did somuch in teaching us new ways of doing things. Even though I didn’t know her she left a lasting impression on me. Thanks to all of you for continuing to help teach us.

    I look at my emails coming in from Nancy Zieman productions with anticipation. I watched the show every Saturday from the moment I saw it on PBS in Oregon. I purchased a Bernette B68 serger early in 2023 from your website and had it shipped to my current home in Michigan. I am extremely pleased with the coverstitch (and chainstitch) which is how I leave it set up near my Evolution. It also was wonderful as back-up when Evolution went in for servicing. I have clothing for my granddaughter and myself planned in 2024, and am determined to finish a Storm At Sea quilt for my son in 2024 also.

    In 2023 I decided to start sewing again and found Namcy Zieman’s pattern sizing instructions. I immediately found her sewing books and purchased them.. This purchase led me to the Stitch It! Sisters and so many more projects including the placements using the Clover fabric tube maker. The placemats made a wonderful gift. This led me to making a rope basket that I filled with coffee and treats for another perfect gift. I also made my first quilt! Your emails and programs have me excited about sewing again! 2024 will be a new year for many more projects! Thank you for bringing my creative side back to life!

      Your store looks amazing. I only wish I lived closer to shop in what looks like the best sewing shop ever. I grew up watching Nancy on my local PBS station & was saddened when she passed. So glad your staff is carrying out her love of sewing. I know she’s looking down with great approval.

    As it was with Nancy Zieman and “Sewing With Nancy”, so it continues with “The Stitch it! Sisters”. These ladies are thankfully carrying on a great legacy and paying homage to a wonderful lady. As a new sewist, many years ago, I faithfully watched “Sewing With Nancy” and learned most of the sewing skills I still use today. Then when machine embroidery became available to the home sewist, I, again, learned skills for machine embroidery from “Sewing With Nancy”. We all miss her so, but glad Deanna, Denise and Dana are going forward but still remembering Nancy.

    I love the family feeling I get when I walk into the Nancy Zieman Sewing Studio. I enjoy the classes and the Stitch It Sisters videos. I like the fact that most times I don’t have to bring my machine to class. I enjoyed the weekend this year and liked the small feel to it. This is one of my favorite sewing stores.

    This past year (2023-2024) has been a tough one for me with difficult challenges interspersed with good things. I think that also mirrors what has been happening in the nation and around the world. I haven’t been able to sew much this past year. I am hoping for more sewing and better things in the new year!

We creators are so blessed to have the resources and experiences of all the exciting things happening in sewing and creating do to Nancy’s love of sewing legacy!

    I cannot say enough great things about Nancy Zieman Productions. I love to watch her on CREATE TV (PBS) and they just do not do enough of her here in Virginia Beach VA. I know that I can get more info with her on my computer. I do that every week when I get a new email. I have been watching her when I first didn’t work outside the home, and she came on my PBS station.
    I have been retired for 10 years this month and really thought I would get more sewing in than I have but “Life Goes On” and you never know what God will throw your way.
    I believe that Nancy Zieman covers all the bases for sewing anything. Home Decor, quilts, clothing, embroidery and more. Just love her shows and her videos are so great even now that she has left us. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! Thank you for keeping her alive for all of us FANS.

    Still watching Nancy every week… I know most of the shows by heart. They bring precious memories to me as I learned so very much from her… Thankfully you are continuing to honor her memory… I may know the show but the lessons taught are still used daily…. Thanks for the reminders…. Sometimes
    I still forget…and need to figure it all out again.. And there is Nancy ready to answer the question…. Her sewing lessons are priceless and current no matter the years.
    Thank you sew very much.

    I am so glad and grateful the three sisters have continued Nancy’s legacy to the sewing world so successfully. Good teaching, good ideas, good projects and products. I’m more quilter and home dec than garment sewist now, but appreciate the sewing presentations on any topic.

    I have great memories of attending events in Beaver Dam and have really missed the fun times since moving to Florida. Maybe this year I’ll make it back for my favorite show in the country, the Great Wisconsin Quilt Show and someday make it to the new Sew Quilt Create Weekend. in May. Keep up the traditions, please, we quilters really appreciate all you do to inspire us!

    Your store looks amazing. I only wish I lived closer to shop in what looks like the best sewing shop ever. I grew up watching Nancy on my local PBS station & was saddened when she passed. So glad your staff is carrying out her love of sewing. I know she’s looking down with great approval.

    This summer I got to sew again with my granddaughter who won a prize in I Sew for Fun Kids 2019. It was so much fun to sew with her and her 7 year old sister. I also love to make the infinity scarves from Faux Fur and giving them as gifts. What a wonderful quick way to warm someone’s day in these cold winters.
    About 28-30 years ago ( I’m guessing) I shopped at the very first Sewing with Nancy store; it is a fond memory.

    I would love to visit you all in Beaver Dam, it’s just too far from Nevada! Your blog make the miles melt away and I almost feel like I’m there. Thank you for the challenges during 2023 and the many, many inspirational blogs, projects, and videos. I know that 2024 will be every bit as inspiring and challenging. Happy New Year!

    2023 found me struggling to start or finish projects of all kinds. I’ve had several losses, including my step dad and also my best friend, on Christmas eve. My friend was my only Christian relationship that i had and my faith has been in Rocky ground for quite some time now. She was helping me look for joy again… from 1000 miles away. Starting the week before Christmas, I’ve started going to a church quilt group and joined craftsy. I hope to create and enjoy fellowship again in 2024. She wanted that for me.

    After I retired in 2009, I think I watched every one of Nancy’s sewing shows. They were a favorite. I got my sewing confidence from her. She was quite a gal. I wish I could have met her. Please keep her memory and her store and the quilting going. I had two surgeries this year and each prevented me from sewing. Now in the process of moving to a smaller home. Can’t wait to get normal and sew again. Keep going in the new year.

    For years I have enjoyed watching Nancy’s sewing shows & feel her quiet spirit of giving.. After a few years of ill health, enjoyed getting back into quilting in 2023 & looking forward to more sewing in 2024!

    I have be a long time admirer of Nancy and her designs. Recently life has crept in and taken my sewing time away. I was thrilled to see the BOM project and the new gadgets that are part of the project. I plan to reclaim my love of sewing and make new “sewing “ friends this year! Thank you for the inspiration and opportunity!!!

    I still look forward to watching Nancy’s previous episodes on Saturday mornings! So many creative folks are a part of those programs as they continue to grow! It’s great to see new sewers continue in this craft!

    Thank you for continuing to honor Nancy with your inspirational videos and love of sewing. Since schools do not offer this type of instruction, you play a large role in educating new students and giving us a refresher course if we have been sewing for a while.

    So many wonderful sewing ideas, and so little time. 2023 was a busy sewing year, with new projects. Looking forward to 2024 and getting more inspiration, more fabric, more needles!

    2023 was a wonderful year of playing with fabric, and in 2024 I am focusing more on doing things that “scare me” like free motion quilting!
