Nancy's Corner

I just shot a little segment for the Sewing with Nancy Show! I went downtown to Vilas Hall where I was for part of the year last year working in the UW costume shop. The segment was about how you can use your sewing skills for working on costumes, and they called me to talk about some of my experience sewing for the Theatre. It was a lot of fun and it went well, (I guess!)
I'm told it will air in September so I'll let you know when it gets closer to the time.
Otherwise, I'm working on a business plan, and doing lots of yoga which has really helped my carpel tunnel syndrome. You can follow how that's going here.
More on the Sewing with Nancy show later when I get the photos...
