I was planning to go -- and REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. Then I got sick -- and as it happens -- we had another big dump of snow Saturday afternoon -- so I am glad I wasn't on the road after all. WINTER JUST WON'T QUIT, EH??
|See that empty chair in the front row? THAT WAS FOR ME...!!|
|Nancy autographed everybody's books....|
|AND she always has to TEACH SOME KIND OF SEWING thingy...|
|I was really sorry I missed eating lunch with my good friend John...|
That's what Nancy and Rich Zieman did for Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. They took pride in building a business that provided good jobs for people. The kind of jobs that could support a family -- you could buy a house, a car and pay for your kids college tuition.
I don't want to get all mushy here -- but Nancy Zieman has been the wind beneath a lot of people's wings in the sewing industry -- not just in Beaver Dam.
And -- hey -- you will love the book. My husband John read it cover-to-cover -- (mostly he only reads Civil War history books).
If you have a book club, or a sewing club -- make reading Seams Unlikely a goal for this year. It is a great read that makes for very interesting discussions. Nancy Zieman is, at her very core, a teacher. And one of the lessons of her book is that your life is what you make it. It's always about that glass half-empty, half-full, isn't it?
Nancy teaches by example. And reading about her life -- the lesson is that kindness matters. When you treat people fairly, every single day -- it always comes back to you.
Thanks, Nancy! (again!)
