With over thirty years in the sewing/fabric industry, Nancy Erickson divides her energy between her newsletter, mail order fabric and pattern business, and national seminars, motivating women to sew more often and better.
She is the founder of The Fashion Sewing Group and The Fashion Sewing Sewing Group Pattern Collection which contributes funding to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and two domestic violence groups: The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and The Family Violence Prevention Fund.
She has written for Threads magazine, and conducts fashion sewing vacations in Chicago and tours in Europe for women who want to learn more about fashion at its source. Before starting Erickson Consulting Group, she hosted a weekly ABC-TV segment, was a columnist, and was vice president of marketing and Fashion Director for a large fabric retailer. The Chicago Tribune once called her a "sewing evangelist." Her education includes a clothing and textiles degree, couture study in Paris, and mechanical/technical training on sewing machines and sergers. Her sense of humor, style, sewing experience, and appreciation for the artistry of fashion have made her a friend to fashion celebrities and earned her a loyal following among women who love to sew.
