Description

Wisconsin Public Television and Nancy Zieman Productions invite you to join us in the Wisconsin Public Television studios – the location of the Sewing With Nancy set – for an open house: Celebrating Nancy Zieman.


Nancy Zieman, longtime host of Sewing With Nancy and co-founder of Quilt Expo, passed away on Nov. 14, 2017. An educator, author, pattern maker, television producer, entrepreneur and innovator, Nancy inspired millions of sewing and quilting enthusiasts throughout her career. She hosted Sewing With Nancy, the longest-running sewing series on television, since 1982.


During this event in honor of Nancy's life and legacy, you'll have the opportunity to v
iew the Sewing With Nancy set, get a behind-the-scenes look at the production of Sewing With Nancy, view a tribute video and visit with the production staff who worked with Nancy over the years. You will also be invited to share your memories of Nancy – and how she inspired you – in a feedback booth.
