Sewing with Nancy 10-20-30 Minutes to Sew for Your Home
Nancy Zieman
0873495306
November 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
The author of 17 sewing books and host of the Sewing with Nancy program that airs on PBS, Zieman here aims to break sewing projects into small steps that can be completed easily by the on-the-go sewer with only "10, 20, [or] 30 minutes" of spare time to sew. This pattern book has projects suitable for even the novice. Every step of every project is described and illustrated, and the book includes patterns for a number of useful sewing and quilting accessories, as well as linens, pillowcases, baby items, and kitchen accessories. Like Sandra Betzina Sews for Your Home (reviewed above), this is a good home-sewing title for public libraries. But if you can choose only one, opt for Betzina because of its richer instructional content. Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.

501 Sewing Hints: From the Viewers of Sewing with Nancy
Nancy L. Zieman
0848714644
January 1996
Paperback
·
 
Amazon.com
This advice-laden book compiled by a renowned television sewing guru works equally well as a reference for answers to specific questions or as a guide to dip into at random. The well-organized hints all sent in by viewers of Sewing with Nancy are occasionally supplemented by variations or further elaboration from Nancy herself. There's so much information (most of it relevant to general sewing projects; some specialized, but potentially useful) that inveterate quick-tip collectors may find themselves reading page after chock-full page of valuable hints when they only meant to look up how to make a crisp collar or find a better way to store all those fly-away pattern pieces.
