Sewing With Nancy’s 30th Anniversary–the Celebration Begins!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that Sewing With Nancy would be celebrating 30 years on TV. On the first anniversary of the show, we celebrated with a cake. And now, the cake can have 30 candles—who would have thought!

My show first aired on the Satellite Program Network, SPN, on September 1, 1982. (The network long ago faded into the sunset.) I know the actual anniversary is several months in the future, but hey, I’ve got to stretch this out as long as possible!

Attend our annual Sewing Weekend Event for a special treat!

I’ll be taking a look back over the last 30 years at a special event during our annual Sewing Weekend Event. On Thursday evening, May 3rd, you’ll travel through the past three decades of Sewing With Nancy, it’s called Nancy Zieman Presents Sewing With Nancy Celebrates 30 Years on Television (How clever of a title is that!). No sewing or quilting tips during this seminar, just grins and giggles. I’ll open the Sewing with Nancy vault and you’ll see short clips from vintage videos, including bloopers, plus memories galore.

Has Sewing Weekend been on your Bucket List?

Beaver Dam Wisconsin is lovely in the spring time—especially this spring—no chance of snow in May. (Well, it has happened before, but I’m going out on a limb that it will not happen this year.) If attending Sewing Weekend has been on your bucket list, now’s the year to attend.

Bye for now,

    Congratulations!! How many shows can say they were on for 30 years? I can’t think of any. Even though you are a celebrity, you haven’t changed a bit. Still the sweet girl who walks people through the creative process so they can understand.
    I hope you will be with us for many years to come.

    Thanks for not fading into the sunset with your first set of shows when that network went under. You kept on going and so did our learning from you. You should be very proud. I am happy for you. Everyone else has said everything I could just repeat and better. It is time for you to take a bow…and stay with us a lot longer I hope! I love your ideas.

    Don’t quit now ! I’ve sewn/quilted for 60 years, yet I would not miss your TV show for anything. You and your guests are calm, organized, and clear, plus I learn something every week. The show just prior to yours on Sat. TV is utterly chaotic, two talk at once, four hands in close-ups, can’t even see the demo, etc. Thanks for 30 years of fun.

    I have learned so much and used the tips so many times
    I have my two sisters watching now every saturday morning.
    Thank you Nancy Stay on the air.

    No way! Thirty years! I’ve been watch your program since it was on satellite and believe it or not, that is what re sparked my interest in sewing. I consider you a mentor. I’ve learned so much and enjoy all your easy methods of sewing. My son was a baby then and now I have a lovely granddaughter who has an interest in sewing. Congratulations! Your the best!!!

    I first saw you at a workshop at the Texas A&M Research and Extension Center near Corpus Christi, Texas in (I believe) 1982. I thought I knew how to sew (10 years in 4-H Club), but that “Busy Woman’s Sewing” presentation literally changed my life. You are AWESOME, Nancy — here’s to another 30 years of sewing!

    I sometimes feel you are my best friend-I spend more time with you and your guests than I do with anyone else. I’m either watching your TV show, reading your catalog or now, reading your blog and it’s all educational and inspiring. Thanks for all your hard work; I hope you and I are both here for many more years.

I met you when you came to my hometown for a three day sewing retreat. You are a very kind and gracious person. It was nice to meet you. Have a great celebration!! Kim
