Pellon® + Sewing With Nancy



Pellon® is a proud sponsor for the Sewing with Nancy television series, featuring Nancy Zieman. We have long admired Nancy, and, having actually worked with her years ago, are thrilled to have renewed our partnership. Nancy is an inspiration. She has schooled generations in the areas of sewing and quilting and is an industry leader in education, innovation, design, and entrepreneurial spirit.

Sewing with Nancy has been a PBS regular for over 30 years. What started out as a one woman operation is now a stunning collaborative effort put together by an incredibly hard-working team. It is backed up by an informative website featuring tips, tricks, tutorials, and other handy info. It is a key online destination, visited daily by beginners and experts alike.
