Sewing with Nancy Zieman

OMG, I wish I had seen these videos much earlier in my sewing journey (I meant 10 years ago!).

 Nancy Zieman is a well known person in the sewing world. She has written quite a number of books such as Sewing with confidence, Serge with confidence, etc...'. I do not own any of her books yet. However, I am so thrilled to have found this site. Very informational and it makes you think ' hmm why didn't I think of that'. 

I am a visual learner and get very bored when I have to read garment construction tips which are word lengthy. Sometimes, I simply can't understand. I feel there are many who are like me. So if you are, I am sure you will enjoy Nancy's videos. 

Update : I am fixing my sewing/makeup/creative room now, can't wait to get the sewing machines started! Too many wonderful patterns just sitting in my drawer untouched. My head is over loaded with creative things (sewing and designing wise! LOL!). Here are some pictures of work in progress and an idea for sorting sewing notions and accessories (things to keep close by the machines).

As you can see, it is a complete mess!

My awesome sewing and serger machines out and ready to be used. I can't wait.

Got this great cabinet from ikea to sort my sewing stuff. Not very expensive, it will last and can take a beating if you move around (like me).

I just love it when things are organized.

Till next time, have a wonderful day!


  1. Did I spy an industrial machine in the corner?? I'm jealous.

  2. Thanks for posting about Nancy. That's a great resource! It looks like you move is going pretty good! Its nice to have a dedicated space for creating. Can't wait to see it completed. And that machine in the corner is serious!!!

  3. I should be slapped with shame, looking at how organized you keep your threads! You are no joke! :D

    So glad you have your own creative space back. That's wonderful Uma. Have major fun!!

  4. I love Nancy Zieman's dvds.. I've recently purchased 10 dvds from her site and prior to that have various other sewing related dvds. I like to watch them or rather listen to them as I sew. It really inspires my sewing game...lol.

    Looking forward to your creations once your sewing room is set up.

  5. Hadn't really heard about the dvds before so thank you for bringing them to my attention.

    Love your sewing space (ahem.. especially those beautiful machines). Ikea and those chest of drawers are making the rusty organising wheels in my brain turn a little.
