Treasured Quilts of Wisconsin Showcases Tradition, Innovation and Inspiration

Treasured Quilts of Wisconsin, a new television special hosted by Sewing With Nancy’s Nancy Zieman, invites viewers on an uplifting journey featuring interviews, stories and masterpieces from Wisconsin quilters. The program premieres 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29 on Wisconsin Public Television.

Through heartwarming interviews, Treasured Quilts of Wisconsin proves that quilting is much more than just fabric and thread. Nancy Zieman introduces viewers to contemporary quilters who take traditional quilting to new levels, innovative quilters who use unconventional techniques to push artistic boundaries, and inspirational quilters who explore the richness of life and its many lessons through their craft.

Treasured Quilts of Wisconsin features quilters and quilts from around Wisconsin. Nancy Zieman, known for sharing the “how” of sewing techniques, delves into the “why” of quilting: the sources of inspiration for what can often be a solitary process. Featured quilters including Diane Gaudynski, Betty Ekern Suiter, Bruce Seeds, Natalie Sewell and more welcome viewers into the workspaces where extraordinary projects take shape. Viewers will also see beautiful quilts by dozens of quilters from across the state.

Each quilter has unique reasons for quilting. Learn how all quilters are united by a passion for tradition, innovation and inspiration when Treasured Quilts of Wisconsin premieres on WPT.
