Nancy McKenzie (Western Maryland College ’78) has found her way through life via happy (and unhappy) accidents. She began working with sewing and other fiber arts when she was young - a long time ago. She has knitted off and on since her teen years, and it has become a relaxation refuge for her. Her other creative work has included childbirth, writing and photography, working for more than 15 years as a correspondent for the Carroll County Times. She is a certified judge for the Maryland Association of Agricultural Fairs and Shows in knitting, crocheting, needlework, sewing, plants and photography. She is a certified instructor in Dance of the Phoenix Qi Gong. In her domestic life, she is surrounded by six cats, two sourdough starters, and one husband, Ned Landis, who is the family musician. She also knows how to fire a Civil War cannon.
