Fit Nice by Nancy

My goal is to take the stress out of seamstress using easy FIT, FASHION and FUN TECHNIQUES.

Nancy Cook ( the other Nancy from Beaver Dam Wisconsin) has done 2 things most of her life---SEW and TEACH.  She has taught sewing and machine embroidery classes for individuals, groups, stores and guilds using all major sewing machine brands. Her TV appearances include Sewing with Nancy and Linda MacPhee’s Workshop.

Finding FitNice helped her personally to create a wardrobe with the 2 patterns that fit her and now as a certified FitNice instructor allows her to  use those 2 things she has done most of her life to help others sew garments that FIT and compliment their bodies.  She enjoys traveling and continues to share at guilds, stores and Original Sewing and Quilt Expos across the country. It is a joy to see the light bulb moment when people realize they can have fit, fun, and fashion without stress.
