I have some news, though the blog title *kinda* gives it away…

I am going to be working with Nancy Zieman Productions!

This is a fantastic opportunity.

Did you know Sewing with Nancy is the longest-running, sewing based television show? 30+ years.
Did you know it is one of the only nationally syndicated shows?

The original job post came across my Facebook feed and said “Writer and Product Developer”. Oh that would be an amazing career! I set forth to clean up my resume and get that over to their HR people. I did a phone interview, a skype interview, and a pattern writing audition interview. WOWSA. I cannot believe it, still.

The company is based in Wisconsin. Thankfully, my experience writing for other fabric companies, designers and magazines has geared me up to the responsibilities of working “off-site”.

I gave my notice at my 40-hr-week day job on Dec 22nd. I had worked there for just a little over 2 years. It wasn’t sewing/quilting related, so I really didn’t talk about it much.

Anywho – now we are back on the sewing/quilting track. High fives all around! “Look under your seats! You get a high-five, YOU get a high-five, EVERYONE GETS A HIGH FIVE.” …. did you read that in your best Oprah voice?

I’m going to keep writing here, at ReannaLily Designs. I’ll also keep providing free patterns and tutorials, as well as, new designs in the shop. Lectures and Workshops will still be rockin’ and rollin’, too.

Of course, I’ll keep you posted! Stay tuned.

Pinch me!!
