Doodling—we’ve all done it with pen and paper. Now it can easily be replicated on fabric. Let Nancy Zieman inspire you to use simple stitches, and odds and ends of fabric to create greeting cards to desktop art from spontaneous Doodle Stitching ideas.

① Collage Doodle: Buttons, small pieces of fabric, leftover ribbon and a little stitching combine to create a greeting card or a small piece of wall art.

Public television's longest-running sewing and quilting program has been the source for innovative sewing, quilting and embroidery techniques and has inspired hobbyists nationwide since host Nancy Zieman transformed the television studio into her classroom in 1982.
The first Sewing With Nancy program aired on cable TV in 1982. Initially, the programs were videotaped in Nancy’s living room with a camera crew of one person and 13-hour taping days! In the early years, Nancy Zieman ran a one-woman show, developing the scripts, making the samples, and taping the programs.
Today, Nancy still writes the scripts, yet it’s a team effort to plan the programming, develop the samples, and write and illustrate the books.
