In certain circles, this week’s guest is considered a rock star. While she humbly disagrees, we’re impressed with the fact that this author, teacher, artist, scholar and woodworker has chosen Bloomington as her home. Since 1995, Nancy Hiller has taught cabinetmaking, furniture, and finishing courses, authored five books and run NR Hiller Design, a one woman design and build operation. We talk to Nancy about how a woodworking course taken out of spite led her down the path to what would become her life’s work and how being a homeowner provided comfort and satisfaction to her as a single woman.
Also, we throw back to At Home in Bloomington Episode 24, in honor of women doing what they want to do! Scouts BSA Troop 1148 has been lighting up the scouting scene and providing opportunities for girls to camp, hike, make and learn outside and in the community in a way mostly only boys had done in the past. And in our REAL-List segment, Deb shares the realities of a home remodeling project.
