Nancy Zieman 4-H Virtual Community Quilt Project & Nancy Zieman Documentary

Nancy Zieman 4-H Virtual Community Quilt Project

In celebration of the upcoming premiere of the PBS Wisconsin documentary, Nancy Zieman: Extraordinary Grace, there will be a Nancy Zieman 4-H Virtual Community Quilt Project. Because Nancy’s career in sewing was inspired by her youth participation in Wisconsin 4-H, all youth and adult quilters, sewists and fiber artists are invited to contribute a photo of a quilt block to the community quilt. In addition to the 6-1/2-inch fiber art square or quilt block, participants will also be including an artist statement detailing how Nancy and 4-H directed their fiber arts journey and/or career path. This virtual community quilt will be a photo collage and will be shared as part of the virtual experience. You’ll also be able to scroll through and read stories from participants across the country whose lives have been impacted by Nancy and/or 4-H, at, Sept. 10-12, 2020.

To see quilt block examples and artist statements and participate in the 4-H Virtual Community Quilt Project, complete the FREE registration at
