I have been a long time fan of Nancy's for so many years. I felt like someone special is missing in our lives. Nancy has always been an inspiration for so many of us through the years. I hope that her legacy and PBS shows will keep all of us going for a very long time. My Saturday mornings would be so empty without Sewing With Nancy. My prayers and love go out to her family and the people that worked with her. God bless all of you.

Sewing With Nancy has been my mini-vacation every weekend since I was out on my own. Sewing was my comfort zone when I was away in the military and after I returned home. Thank you for years of comfort and joy. You are missed and my heart aches for our loss.

I've watched Nancy for years and truly admired her ability as an artist but mostly for her loving personality. She was such a caring loving person on camera and I know that she must have been loved by each of her family members. I send my condolences to her family as I know she must have been such a huge influence on your lives. She was certainly loved by the sewing community. May God give each of you peace and comfort as you remember all the loving years you spent with her. God Bless!

Nancy Zieman's grace, quiet confidence, and sharing have impacted me greatly during the many years I've followed her on television. She was such a special soul, and I can't help but believe that she will also be an influence wherever she is present. I miss her, and speak of her in my prayers. To all of her family, friends, and co-workers, how lucky you are to have had her personally in your life. Please accept my condolences for your loss.

I am in a state of shock. I watched Nancy EVERY Saturday morning, got a waffle & cup of coffee to watch my sewing mentor & bought every tape & sewing accessory she recommended. I loved her & learned so much. Still have the well worn books & earliest printouts that have gone all the way to Singapore with me when living there. Was so excited when she adopted as I am both adopted & an adoptive mother myself. God Bless you all & know she left a huge footprint in my heart & on sewing skills. Still remember the back cover of an early book of her sitting outside with her first young son, husband & glass of wine. Like Nancy, I was born in 1953. She is loved & will be missed.

I loved watching Sewing With Nancy, I know I am a lot older than she was but every time I watched her show I learned something, so therefore I believe you are never to old to learn. I just found out about Nancy passing away and she will truly be missed by a lot of people. Rest In Peace Nancy.

Since I was a very young girl I watched Nancy on PBS. She taught me to sew. I had a complete tailoring education every morning. I never missed her show. As I got older I started to really appreciate what Nancy did for us. She gave so much of herself and overcame such obstacles. She was an angel with her charities and labors of love. I tell everyone that I had the best teacher. She was my guru. God will surely find her a beautiful and well appointed sewing room in heaven. He will give her all the notions she wants. God Bless her and I will pray that her giving and loving family are comforted knowing the love we all have for them. Thank you for sharing Nancy with us. God bless and keep you strong.

Just learned of Nancy's passing over after watching the show about sewing with children. First Shock, then a Deep Sadness and Feeling of Loss. I read all of the lovely condolences poured out by SO MANY and I just have to add my AMEN. Nancy was a teacher who forgot about herself and poured out her love of sewing and creating beautiful things so that we each could take what we wanted to make our worlds even richer. Her talents were striking and her love generous. Thank You Nancy- we miss you

Still sad after reading this morning of Nancy's passing. Just like so many influential people in our lives, I thought she'd always be there, never thinking loss would come so soon.

My sincere condolences to all in her family.

I am not a seamstress by any means but watching Nancy Zieman gave me courage to get out the old Sears table top and make beautiful creations. Nancy's theme music always perked me up and I enjoyed hearing her expert advice. I learned of Nancy's passing today with the marathon programs on Create. I believe God sends everyone to earth with knowledge that some days we are the teacher and some days we are the student in so many ways. Nancy Zieman was blessed with "patience"; a virtue that can't get any traction in our high tech world. Patience teaches us to give all the glory up to God for life's mountain tops and valley's because each has a lesson. Nancy's patience re-enforced in me to not be in a hurry for all will come if it's meant to be. Above all "wait on the Lord". Rest in peace Nancy. My prayers are with the Zieman family.

Sewing With Nancy has always and still is a special time for me. I check my TV's guide and look for the times when it will air. That's my time for me! I purchased and read her book, reserving it before it was available. I was so touched by her strength of character and determination to place her face before the world, and to be loved by so many of us who sew, want to sew, or just want to be entertained by Nancy. I purchased from her catalog, bought DVD's and books, which I still treasure and some of which I've shared with my daughter. I just became aware of her passing about a month ago; being devastated. The world of fabric arts has lost a very special person, but Heaven is richer because Jesus has called her home to be with Him. May God comfort you, her family, and all who loved Nancy as we have.

I watched Nancy's show in early 1980's. I came across it today. I guess I always knew she had an issue with her facial nerves but it wasn't very obvious. As I watched her today, I thought I've got to look her up online and find out more. In my mind, she demonstrated such strength that I wanted to know more about her struggle as an inspiration. As you can see one online link to another showed me her story and unfortunately her recent passing. I am so inspired by learning her story today. My condolences to her Family. As you can see, she continues to demonstrate strength and courage even in her passing many months ago!

Nancy is synonymous with sewing. I bought from her catalogue years ago, went to one of her traveling classes, watched her videos on PBS, learning so much from her along the way. She has a huge legacy, which will continue for decades to come because she was always on the cutting edge of sewing techniques and tools. It would be difficult to say that I will miss her, because she will still be with me in all the ways that I am familiar with. I feel sympathy for her family, who I know are blessed - just knowing that she is in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I had a dear friend, breast cancer w mets to bone...deeply sorry for the loss of this icon of industry, entrepreneurship, inspiration and creativity but not sorry that the suffering is over. Just learned of her passing now; belated blesssings to Nancy on her new path and to all her family.

Posted by Cheryl Furr - Miami Shores, FL   June 01, 2018

So many will miss her and her dedication to teaching all of us the art of sewing. I have seen many "sewing shows" that have not inspired me as Nancy has. Her demeanor, explaining her task at hand in simple terms, soft-spoken, yet clear words were some of the reasons I continued watching her...year after year.
I regret Nancy had to battle the vilest of diseases...and ultimately lost, way, way too young!
Prayers for mending, peace of mind, and regression of pain for the families...God Bless. RIP Nancy!

To the Zieman Family,

Like one of many thousands, Nancy was a welcomed friend in my home and studio whenever I needed her amazing sewing expertise. She has left behind a wonderful gift. By sharing herself with the world, she assured she will always be here for us. Her demeanor, knowledge, and selflessness made her an icon. God plants us where we are needed and she surely blossomed. She will be here helping us to sew for generations to come. Thank you for sharing her with the world.

I have just recently heard of Nancy Zieman's passing. Though I am not a sewer myself, i have long admired her God given Gifts and Talents. I often thought to myself, I wish I had some of her talents as a designer...she seemed and felt like a Dear Close friend...perhaps a chum that perhaps went to High School with. A very personable Lady. One felt one could talk to...I am so thrilled that my PBS Station is running her show here at KERA in Dallas, Texas and North Texas...Nancy still brings forth that warm and cozy feeling of a Dear Friend...perhaps having a cup of Coffee or Tea with her in her kitchen; then on to the Sewing Room. Thank you Nancy Zieman for so many years and opportunities to learn from your giving Spirit. You will be sorely missed. However, you are now in the Presence of the Lord...God Bless You and Your Family.

I just now learned of Nancy's death, and am so sad, as, I saw a program of her sharing her grandma special sewing skills with her grandchildren. It touched my heart, as, I am continuing to sew with my granddaughter, a common thread my own grandmother and I shared, with me useing her treddle machine. She passed much too soon, as Nancy now has. She will live in the hearts of her sewing sisters who share her 'old soul'. blessings to you all...Jane DuChene... Waverly, Iowa

I have watched her from her very 1st episodes until the most recent. I truly felt that she was my sewing friend via TV and you tube. I learned to sew when I was 11 and I could not wait to see every episode of her PBS programs. I have many of her sewing books and return to them on a regular basis for sewing instructions.

Ahhhhhh.....this morning I relaxed by the fire and tuned in to watch Nancy on her sewing show. I do not sew , but my mother and grandmother were beautiful seamstresses.
Connecting with Nancy was like a beautiful , soothing meditation through her ease, grace, great skill as she demonstrated the craft of making something beautiful, whimsical, original & special.
I loved the sound of her voice & her steady, clear tutorials.
I became an armchair seamstress traveler
With Nancy as warm, friendly, wise guide....& I was also able to revisit my memories of my mother & grandmother during my Nancy Meditation.
A few minutes ago, after her show, I decided to check out her website for the first time....
And with surprise & a heart tug, learned she had recently passed away...

Ahhhh... so very sorry.... and I extend my heartfelt sympathy to her family & friends.
She will be missed, indeed.

Words cannot express what joy in life your beloved wife and mother brought to me through all her years of television, books and personal appearances bringing her love and personal passion of sewing to all her loyal followers. I had the pleasure of meeting her once and she was as gracious as she appeared on TV in my living room throughout my lifetime. As a lifelong sewer myself, her methods, skills, tricks and tips will stay with me forever. As a faithful follower I was shocked the day I heard the quiet after the episode, and looked up from my knitting that day and saw that she had passed away. I was heartbroken as such a dear, sweet person and beloved Mother and Wife was taken from us far too soon. As the New Year comes may the passage of time help you to recover from your loss, but know that so many share in your grief. She will always be in our hearts forever.

When I first read she was sick, I thought of how my family members had gone through cancer and what it does to you and your family. I knew what they was going through. I pray that Nancy would come out of it cancer free. But we just don't know when the Lord calls us home. I believe Nancy was every woman girlfriend & teacher. Because I remember seeing her on TV ,in late 1970. I was a lonely teenager , didn't know what to do with myself then. She gave me a way to express myself. And to try learn things even if it didn't come out right. I will always remember her. We will see her again with a needle & thread in her hands.

I shall miss you Nancy. You took the mystery out of sewing. Your simple approach to the fabric and sewing world opened my world for creativity. My mom sewed my beautiful clothes from the time I was born through my teens, but she just could never teach me to sew; often getting frustrated at my crooked lines and taking over (bless her heart). Imagine her surprise when I started sewing my own dresses, outfits for my baby girl, and hemming my nephews slacks and jeans! All thanks to you Nancy. God bless you and your family. We will truly miss you.

I just learned of Nancy Zieman's passing. I'm so shocked - I would try to catch her shows on PBS. I especially enjoyed her comedy episode where she used sewing utensils to cook in partner with another sewing expert. I've learned so much just listening and watching her. She had a calm spirit that uplifted me and gave me confidence in approaching my sewing craft. I will be forever grateful that I had the chance to bring her kind spirit into my sewing room. Thank you Nancy and Thank you to your family for sharing you with us. You will be missed.

Dear Friend, Nancy Zieman, you never met me, but I would recognize you from a mile away. I too have watched you, obsessively, for as many years as you have been on Tv. I am now 77, and I can't believe I've outlived you. You were so talented, so sharing, so unaffected, so lovely--Yes, I probably adored you. Thank you for your time. I hope you didn't suffer long. I pray for comfort for your family, and for all your followers who learned so much from you. See you in Heaven, where I hope we can meet.

"Never was a 'sewist' but met Nancy on the many, many times I visited family in Waupun and Beaver Dam over the many years from 1958 until 2002. I've watched her show many times and was amazed at how she, like myself a surgeon for so many years, felt that her fingers had their own lives. Nancy had the hands of a surgeon and her results were superb. I'll miss you, Nancy. Assuredly, the Holy Trinity and the Blessed Theotokos are still welcoming you. Eternal Memory, Nancy, Eternal Memory. Pray for us.

Nancy was a major contributor to the worlds of Sewing and Quilt-making in the USA. She encouraged thousands of us to learn techniques and patterns, with ample instructions and demonstrations. Nancy shared her knowledge with enthusiasm, and added to her teachings by introducing us to many knowledgeable guests.

Nancy inspired me to develop my overall confidence once more through sewing. I believe the gals at the store are an extension of her love of sewing. When I sewed I frequently referred to one of Nancy's publications; and, her positive attitude and tone of voice carried me through difficult projects with confidence and cheer. Thank you Nancy for being you, I felt wonderful when you came on the air. I am very sad right now, but I can see your smile. I miss you greatly.

Nancy Zieman never knew it - but she saved my life. During a very painful period, my life was spiraling out of control. One early Sunday morning in the early 1990's, I turned on my tv and I came across her show. She emanated such grounding strength and kindness that I found myself waiting in excitement each Saturday to watch her sewing show. I was an avid fan for many years, and when I found out that she died, I felt like I lost a close friend. I will never forget her kindness. She was an amazing teacher, but I believe she was a powerful, loving healer. I will never forget...

My deepest condolences to her family, friends , fellow public t v viewers and any and all families impacted by cancer of any type.

It was because of Nancy that I gained the confidence to learn the art of sewing. Through her countless programs, instructional videos and books, I was able to learn how to sew on my own. She gave me the gift of confidence to learn what initially seemed so complicated, but made it so simple to understand. Here in Hawaii we are limited to sewing classes and she brought the classes into my home across the Pacific and for that I am grateful and thank her. God bless her, her family and her entire team.

Sunday was a beautiful day, made even more so whilst I watched Sewing with Nancy. That night I awoke and found it impossible to return to sleep, so I turned on the TV and watched a program on Create TV until my mind said it was time to return to dreamland. A second before I turned off the TV I heard "Remembering Nancy". This comment woke me up as I thought, no one usually 'remembers' someone unless they have died. I did some quick on line research and discovered that Nancy had died. I have been watching her program for years. Her programs were educational. Her programs inspired me to enroll in quilting classes.I will miss her enthusiasm, and her smile.

I suppose it was a given that a Nancy should be watching Nancy on her sewing show on public television. It's been many years since I have done any sewing...actually I did it in homemaking in high school and a little bit afterwards. I enjoyed it and actually have thought of taking it up again as I enjoyed watching Nancy do so on television so much. I applauded the fact that she never let her condition of Bell's palsy prevent her from being in the public eye. I was familiar with the condition because two men that I knew very well had it so it not only never bothered me but gave me an extra dose of respect for Nancy as I thought it was admirable that she didn't let it bother her or impede her success.

I was watching an episode of Nancy's show and at the end of the program was an acknowledgement and remembrance of her. I'm sorry that I did not hear of her passing last week until I tuned into the show. I'd like to extend my condolences and prayers to her family. When I think of selfless bravery she epitomizes that in this fallen world of vanity. Her skill and love of her craft is an inspiration for all generations! May she rest in the peace and love of the Father! Her legacy will live on!
Peace and love to her family!

At Rochester, NY's PBS station, WXXI, the program manager (male) was about to cancel "Sewing With Nancy." The area has a strong sewing community, ranging from Hickey-Freeman tailored men's clothes to strong fiber interests with weaving, the RIT's School for American Crafts, 4-H groups, a local ASG chapter and many quilting groups. Several of us wrote to Nancy to let her know of this decision. Meanwhile, local fabric and sewing machine stores put out petitions to keep Nancy on the air. I'll never forget picking up the phone and hearing Nancy's familiar voice on the other end, saying she was going to try to come to Rochester to give a show. Although she nearly got caught in a March snow storm in Detroit, she did come and gave a great presentation. And that program manager and the president of the station, were presented with sheets of paper, enclosed in a personalized sewing machine embroidered folder letting him and the station know how much we wanted Nancy to stay on the air. We later heard how jealous the PBS stations in Buffalo and Syracuse were that we had gotten Nancy Zieman, and they hadn't! Several of us were honored to be able to have lunch with her before she flew back to Wisconsin. She was so generous with her time here, for which we were very grateful. She had a memorable elegance and presence. Missing her children and family was her one regret in coming. Rochester being the home of Susan B Anthony, to mark her success in the business world, we gave her a Susan B dollar.

Just having learned of her passing from a NY Times obit, my husband and I were distressed to know of the pain and suffering she went through these last few years. Our thoughts of comfort and sympathy to her family and friends. She leaves a legacy of grace, pride in good work-women-ship and curiosity.

I discovered 'Sewing with Nancy' by pure accident many years ago. I already loved to sew & realizing there was a show about my favorite hobby was so exciting. The first show I saw was about sewing swim suits. I ordered the transcript made 2 swim suits & was totally hooked on Nancy's show! Have been a huge fan every since. So it deeply saddens me to hear of her passing. I have learned so much from watching her shows. My love of sewing & quilting is mostly the result of being a faithful viewer each week & learning so many shortcuts which makes this craft more enjoyable. My heart goes out to all of her family & friends. May she Rest In Peace. Good bye, Nancy-for now...

As I was watching the Sewing with Nancy program last Monday I was shocked and saddened to see the memorial about her passing. My deepest condolences to her family and all who loved her, which probably includes most of her television audience. Although I don't sew, I enjoyed watching her programs, especially the quilting ones. I bought a few of her books over the years for my sister, and found the pattern alteration book particularly intriguing. In her too short life she has touched many other lives positively with perhaps just one or two helpful hints or maybe inspiring a major career choice. Also her success despite living with Bell's Palsy must have been an inspiration for others living with obstacles, whether health or disability issues or perhaps growing up in a broken home or being from the wrong side of the tracks. Somehow I always just knew she was the same sweet charming lady away from the camera as she was in front of it. She is surely now hearing these words: Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

I was fortunate to have a mother who started teaching me to sew at the age of 5. When Sewing with Nancy started airing, Mom and I would watch together whenever we could. Through the tips and ideas she shared, I learned to take even the most basic sewing project and make it my own. When my mother was called home to the Lord, Nancy remained a part of my life through her shows. I loved the creativity she inspired, the encouragement she shared and the strength and gentleness that she exhibited through her life. Her loss will be felt by many.

To her family, you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Your loved one is free of the things of this fallen world. Know that as time passes, the tears and loss you feel now will turn to sweet memories that are part of her legend and yours. Cherish them as her viewers cherished the time she spent with them.

Nancy inspired me to sew again after I had become discouraged. She taught that there's more than one way to do things and shortcuts are good! But beyond that, she showed by example that you don't have to look like a perfect model, talk flawlessly or never make a mistake to star in a wonderful TV show that helped thousands. Her commitment to charity sewing has given me inspiration for years and will continue to be leisure time projects. Words can't fully express what her teaching, notions and example of Christian living has meant to me over the last 30 years. Thank you to her family for supporting her endeavors.

Here's a little poem in Nancy's honor:

I pray that risen from the dead, I may in glory stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head, but a needle in my hand.
I never learned to sing or play, so let no harp be mine.
From birth until my dying day, plain sewing's been my line.
Therefore, accustomed to the end in applying useful stitches,
I'll be content if asked to mend the little angel's britches.

Dearest Family:
Nancy was such an inspiration to me and I'm sure thousands of other women like me who enjoyed her teaching and found we felt confident enough to actually make a quilt instead of just dreaming of making one. When our grandmother's weren't there to teach us the skills, Nancy was. My greatest joy is a little log cabin quilt I made for my youngest 25 years ago and after years of use is still in good enough shape to pass on to his first child. There have been many more quilts since then, for other children, and Nancy's gift for teaching, made every one of them possible. I am so sorry for her loss. May your family know the peace that passes understanding.

I was very saddened to hear of her illness and the struggles she endured throughout her life, but she has left a legacy.

To the Zieman family,

What a tribute to Nancy. Since her program announcing her retirement from the show, thousands, possibly over a million people have poured out their appreciation for a truly unique woman. I, too, had to join with others in expressing my admiration for her dedication. As others have noted, sewing was the vehicle in which she shared her love and faith. It's hard to say which was most valuable. I've tried lots of sewing projects, but I will miss her warmth, confidence and sheer pluck!

Thank you for sharing her life with us, the viewers. We are forever grateful.

I am saddened by the news of Nancy's passing. She was in my living room every week and I felt that I knew her, but of course I didn't really. She was a great instructor and seemed like a gentle soul. Even if I wasn't going to make what she demonstrated, I always learned something and enjoyed watching her. She had a generous spirit and championed other sewists and causes.

Dear Zieman Family, please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Nancy educated and encouraged so many that love the art sewing and quilting. I have been a devoted fan of hers as far back as I can remember. I watched her on TV weekly, and grateful so many favorite episodes are recorded. One special one that come to mind is the comical episode she made with Mari Malari. I never laughed so hard when they demonstrated how to use a rotary cutter to dice celery!

My sewing studio is full of her sewing notions, supplies, fabrics, and my bookshelfs are full of her DVD''s, books, and videos and supplies. I've continued to enjoy using all of them for several years.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies, and know she is no longer suffering and is at peace with the Lord. Nancy will always remain in a special place in my heart. I am so grateful to feel like I welcomed her into my home weekly, as though I actually knew her personally and the most precious woman she was.

There are some people who leave this world a better place. Nancy was one of those kinds of beautiful people (inside & out). I had no idea she was sick so the news of her death was unbelievable. Shocking. I have watched her program almost every Monday at 12:30 since retirement. What a piece of sunshine along with terrific education. Thank you, Nancy, for continuing to teach the craft when schools have cut out most vocational programs. I'm sure you have inspired many young minds and rejuvenated our older minds. I miss you terribly. Until we meet again....

I feel as if I have lost a dear friend as she had that manner about her on every one of her shows that I watched. Because of Nancy, I undertook quilting over ten years ago, and love it! I have so many books and DVDs from episodes that were special to me, and some I still have saved on my recorder, that I will always treasure. Heaven certainly gained an Angel in Nancy's passing! and a talented one that will keep everyone in Heaven complete with a quilt, a bag, a dress, shirt, skirt, or whatever they would desire on this journey!
I know that Nancy's talent and kindness will live on forever in everyone's heart and thoughts, in all the good work and efforts she has always provided.
Farewell on this journey, my friend, I cannot wait until I am able to join you as we gather around a large quilt frame and begin a project together one day!

Many years ago, I was contacted by Nancy's Notions to be interviewed in "Nancy's Corner" for the work we do through Little Dresses for Africa. I decided to fly to Wisconsin to be on her show, hoping the exposure on TV would spread our cause. I never dreamed such a friendship would develop nor did I anticipate the impact that Nancy's association would have on our ministry. What began that day was a close connection and many other opportunities to work together. The generosity to the children of Africa that followed was hard to even measure. She has been responsible through her influence on so much good, and I am sure that I am one of many charitable causes with which she has aligned herself. We are so grateful to have known her and feel a very personal loss at her passing. Some years later, Nancy honored us by being the keynote speaker at our Little Dresses Sending Hope conference in Shipshewana. She and Rich came not only to speak but also attended the dinner the night before. She was so gracious to the attendees and so patient with the questions and photo requests. I will always remember how she shared her story with such humility and humor. She touched the ladies with her heart and spirit and her Christianity was apparent in everything she did and said. Our sincere sympathy to Rich and the family and our thanks for all you have done to support her good works. I know it takes a family to stand behind this successful of a life as both a business woman, mother and wife. Thank you for sharing her with the world and encouraging her as she made such a difference in so many lives. Our prayers are with you and we are confident that she rests in a better place. Love, Rachel O'Neill

As a former board president of Bethany Christian Services on Wisconsin, I came to appreciate her not only as a successful business woman but also a strong supporter of adoption. She had a pretty long drive from Beaver Dam to Waukesha for out board meetings but she tried to make every and when she was not able, she often called in. She was a busy lady and could have easily turned down our invitation to join our board. But her love & commitment to adoption lead her to serving on the board for many years.

Thank you for everything just doesn't seem to be enough for all you taught me. You have left a big following and you will be missed by all of us. We loved you so much! You have taught so many people from your TV Shows, Quilt Classes, and Quilt Shows. You have been there for me whenever I had a question I could just pull up your shows on the internet, your stores supplied me so many great tools to create my quilts. You were a visitor in our home every Thursday. God gave us an angel when you were here, and you left your mark in the quilting world and all the other causes you brought to us in your programs. I will truly miss you. God bless your Family who graciously shared you with us. You will always remain in our thoughts and memories and in all you left for us and for generations to come.

I always wanted to sew, their are somethings people do and it seems so easy you become so convinced that it is so easy. You go out and buy everything needed to fulfill your desire of completing the project. But you are not Nancy who has the patience and love for sewing. Over time you keep trying with some success and you improve a little with each stitch and project,but you are not Nancy, a little encouragement from her goes a long way. To the family of Nancy Zieman, you have my condolences. The God of tender mercies comforts us in all our trails. 2Cor1

I had the opportunity to meet Nancy at the Sewing Expo Convention in Puyallup, Washington around 2004. Due to some serious injuries I had, I was in a wheelchair at the time. Nancy had been told ahead of time about my accident, the loss of my husband, and the possibility I was facing of loosing my leg by a mutual friend. When we got to her booth the women were at least 10 deep, and I could not see her over all the women. But, she had seen us coming, and came out from behind her safe area into the mop of fans to come over to me and introduced herself. She also told me how very sorry she was to learn of the passing of my husband, and the numerous surgeries I had had. I was overwhelmed by her unselfish, lovingly condolences and words of encouragement she gave to me. She was the star, not me, yet her kind words felt like she should have been talking to her best friend. Nancy had a way of touching my heart and life that day, as well as many, many other people's lives she touches that you probably don't even know about.

I wanted to let you all know how much Nancy touched my life that day, and the many lives of the women who stopped to hear her kind words she spoke to me.

I only wish I was there to help you thru this very difficult time, as she helped me that day in Puyallup. Surround yourself with family and friends, and those adorable grandchildren, it will help. And May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow!

Nancy you will be sorely missed. Your creativeness encouraged me to buy my first sewing machine, in which I made my niece her satchel to carry necessities for her and her daughter. And I am a 58 year old man and your inspiration still lives on. Thank you.

To Nancy's beautiful and treasured family,
What impresses me most about Nancy is that while diligently working and creating with her God given talents, she loved the Lord and therefore lived her faith through it all. I feel that example will mean the most to you as you treasure your memories of her. You are in my prayers. God bless you. Donna Parton, Frankton, IN

What a treasure the country will miss. I have felt connected to her in many ways over the years watching her on television - with a love of sewing and quilting, having adopted two girls from Korea, and sharing a faith in our Heavenly Father. May the family find peace and comfort.

I consider it one of the greatest joys and privileges of my life to have known Nancy in the professional world and to learn so many things from this truly amazing woman. When her book 'Seams Unlikely' came out , I was first in line to buy it. I could not put it down. I felt as though I was introduced to every member of her family and I saw clearly, how deeply she loved each and every one of them and they, her. I have been reminded more than once of the struggles that she endured with such grace, such dignity and honestly, I felt some shame at my own lack of faith. I know that this beautiful woman is in the arms of our Lord and all who are with her are rejoicing and celebrating her. For her family here on earth, please know how much we adored and respected Nancy and know that our prayers are for you all to feel that love and support. We thank you for sharing her with us. Blessings and heartfelt prayers for your broken hearts today.
