    The seam finishes pdf is wonderful! I am sure to keep it and refer to it when I am stuck with my seams 🙂

  2. Zina says:

    I think I’m actually supposed to comment here to be part of the blog tour and included for the grand prize–no? Nancy is the best and I’m glad she’s going to have more of a presence on the web.

  3. Vicki says:

    Thanks for the seam finishes PDF, more proof that this book is worth having as a main reference guide.

  4. Cheryl Greenleaf says:

    I just watched the DVD for Nancy’s Fancy Footworks book /workbook the other night and have to say that between the DVD and her clearly written instructions I feel confident when using all my presser feet. I’ve even added instruction sheets for the use of all my other Baby Lock presser feet (in alphabetical order of course).

    I can tell from what I’ve see so far that Nancy Zieman’s Sewing A to Z is another must have.

    Thanks for participating in this giveaway.
