Nancy Zieman passed away today; November 14, 2017. Her cancer must have been aggressive in her last days. It is heart breaking to watch cancer ravage the body. I send condolences to any and all that knew her personally -- but also to all those that sew or sew better because of her. She was wonderfully gifted in so many ways!

She will be missed!

One of my most favorite things about her is how humble she was in every interview. She called herself a teacher and audience a classroom -- when asked about her celebrity status.

I have read each comment and given flowers to you all.
Some people leave such an imprint in our hearts -- she will never be forgotten.

Nancy was by far a truly gifted and talented lady who will be dearly missed in the sewing world. I remember Nancy as both of us attended the same college at the same time in Wisconsin and her contributions back then were noticeable. So impressive to see her rise to stardom and become a household name in sewing. I’m so shocked and saddened to read about her passing thinking she had beat cancer for good upon her May 2016 return to PBS. Things sure changed quickly and such a huge loss. My condolences to family, friends, and all the people she inspired.
