Sewing With Nancy® 1900 Series Program Descriptions Prog. 1901: Simple Swing Jackets (Uplinks Aug. 21, 2005, and Feb. 19, 2006) Use two fabrics and a streamlined pattern to sew reversible jackets that have style and flair. Nancy Zieman uses two coordinating fabrics and a jacket pattern having only three or four main pattern pieces to make versatile casual jackets. She demonstrates simplified construction techniques as she makes a reversible print jacket with a collar. Then she shows how to add interest to a collarless reversible jacket by making and adding piping. Prog. 1902: Simple Swing Jackets (Uplinks Aug. 28, 2005, and Feb. 26, 2006) Combine serger construction and interesting fabrics to make single layer jackets. Using the same pattern as in the previous program, Nancy Zieman creates two serged jackets with totally different looks. She chooses a midweight woolen fabric to make a single layer jacket accented with serged stitching. Then she selects a sheer fabric and uses a serged rolled hem to construct and finish a jacket that has a collar. Prog. 1903: Simple Swing Jackets (Uplinks Sept. 4, 2005, and March 5, 2006) Give a basic jacket personality and vitality with unique sewing techniques and accents. Small amounts of embellishment can give a jacket a new look. Nancy Zieman adds couched thread accents to the collar of one jacket, then finishes jacket and collar edges of another jacket with fringe. She simulates color blocking, using both sides of a reversible fabric on a third jacket, and adds elegant embroidery to a boiled wool jacket. Prog. 1904: Quilting—It’s All in the Cards (Uplinks Sept. 11, 2005, and March 12, 2006) Use fat quarter cuts of fabric to learn how to select and coordinate quilt fabric colorations. Nancy Zieman and quilting author/color expert Terry Atkinson use fat quarter “playing cards” to illustrate color selection principles for choosing quilt fabrics. They use Terry’s Four Seasons, Go Fish, and King’s Corner quilts as examples, with designs based on popular card games. Nancy explains how to construct the King’s Corner Quilt and the Go Fish Quilt. Prog. 1905: Quilting—It’s All in the Cards (Uplinks Sept. 18, 2005, and March 19, 2006) Practice combining quilt prints by using fabric fat quarters. Guest Terry Atkinson and Nancy Zieman play a few hands of fat quarter poker to develop winning strategies for combining five prints of various sizes, values, and colors. They demonstrate timesaving techniques for making a High Five Quilt and a Royal Pairs Quilt, each patterned after a card game. Prog. 1906: Quilting—It’s All in the Cards (Uplinks Sept. 25, 2005, and March 26, 2006) Use a simple three step process to choose coordinating quilt fabrics to complement a print. Using folded fat quarter fabric cuts, Nancy Zieman and guest Terry Atkinson practice selecting quilt fabrics by considering three factors: print size, print variety, and value. They illustrate those principles, then give step by step details for making card game-based Texas Hold ’em and Four Seasons Quilts. Prog. 1907: Sew Chic Chenille (Uplinks Oct. 2, 2005, and April 2, 2006) Make textured chenille; then add it to fashionable garments, accessories, and home accents. Chenille is no longer restricted to the bedroom. Nancy Zieman explains the simple process of layering, stitching, cutting, and laundering fabrics to create chenille. After showing how to make chenille scarves, she explains how to incorporate chenille into a favorite garment pattern. She also details how to make an ultra- soft chenille baby blanket. Prog. 1908: Sew Chic Chenille (Uplinks Oct. 9, 2005, and April 9, 2006) Learn simple techniques for adding chenille accents to chic accessories. Nancy Zieman uses chenille to accent accessories rivaling those found in exclusive boutiques. She adds Stacked Chenille to a clutch bag, then incorporates chenille morsels on a cosmetic bag. She makes a chenille Peek-A-Boo Scarf using a stabilizer base, and adds fringed binding to jacket edges. Prog. 1909: Sweatshirt Makeovers (Uplinks Oct. 16, 2005, and April 16, 2006) Convert ordinary pullover sweatshirts into fashionable cardigans. After demonstrating how to turn a pullover sweatshirt into a classic cardigan, Nancy Zieman and guest Mary Mulari construct three variations. They add twisted button loops to a front closure. They adapt a quilting technique to make center front prairie points. Finally, they use hemline ribbing to convert a sweatshirt into a vest. Prog. 1910: Sweatshirt Makeovers (Uplinks Oct. 23, 2005, and April 23, 2006) Add style, comfort, and fashion to a sweatshirt by modifying the neckline and hemline. Host Nancy Zieman and guest Mary Mulari begin by adapting a sweatshirt neckline to include a classic placket opening. Next, they enhance the neckline with a zippered collar, and they include a handy zippered sleeve pocket using a simplified technique. They also add a buttoned-up side accent and neckline crossover ribbing to another sweatshirt. Prog. 1911: Sweatshirt Makeovers (Uplinks Oct. 30, 2005, and April 30, 2006) Change the style of a sweatshirt with facings and appliqués. Nancy Zieman and guest Mary Mulari show how to remove neckline ribbing and make facing patterns. Then they add pleated inserts, vented or notched facings, and appliqués to sweatshirts. They conclude by converting a sweatshirt into a vest, using a zippered placket at the neckline and double facings to finish and trim the armholes. Prog. 1912: Fantastic Fabric Bowls (Uplinks Nov. 6, 2005, and May 7, 2006) Use fabric to make bowls that serve as attractive home décor accents. Designer/sewing expert Kate Bashynski is Nancy Zieman’s guest. She starts by making a basic fabric bowl by fusing two fabrics to interfacing, then shapes the bowl with darts and accents it with machine stitching. After making a confetti bowl, she and Nancy modify the shape of several bowls, making flat-topped, octagon base, chevroned, and 8-pointed versions. Prog. 1913: Fantastic Fabric Bowls (Uplinks Nov. 13, 2005, and May 14, 2006) Take fabric bowl making to the next level with changes in shaping and fabrication. After reviewing basic bowl construction, Nancy Zieman and guest Kate Bashynski move on to more challenging variations. They make a bowl with a scalloped edge and a center medallion, a stand-tall bowl, a round bowl, a pagoda bowl, and a fluted bowl. For added interest, they also accent several of the bowls with machine stitching, fringe, and buttons.
