A Fine Seamstress
When I was a young "sewer" I watched Nancy to find out how to do things the right way! She explained sewing techniques so simply and thoroughly. As a nurse, I always thought she must have had a stroke at some point in her life due to the obvious drooping of one side of her face. After doing some research I found out that she had suffered from Bell's Palsy at a very young age and the facial paralysis did not diminish. Her parents encouraged her in all her pursuits and her talent led to Sewing with Nancy.
Often we feel that we know the people we watch on television. I always thought if I met Nancy in person we would be instant friends. Her graciousness reached through the television screen. Thankfully her knowledge will continue to be passed on as reruns of her programs air and perhaps a new generation of seamstresses will be taught by the best!
