From the Publisher
How to Stitch an American Dream will make you laugh, cry, say “bless your heart.”
In her new memoir, How to Stitch an American Dream, readers will discover the behind-the-scenes success story of the Missouri Star Quilt Company and Jenny’s remarkable journey to overcome hardship, claim the abundance of family, and ignite the power of giving—all while revitalizing a small town along the way.
Jenny is now giving her fans, the business world, and moms of all ages (and grandmas too!) what they’ve been asking for: the full story of her journey, from her humble beginnings as a homeschooling mom, to founding MSQC in her fifties, through the remarkable success and inspiration she’s so well-known for today.
A STORY THAT WILL BUILD YOU UP
How Jenny and her beloved husband, Ron, raised seven children on a shoestring budget— and had fun doing it!
With only a prayer, the Doan family moved from California to rural Missouri with no place to live, no jobs, and no idea how they were going to make it— only faith!
How Jenny, Ron and their children worked side-by-side to patch together a family home out of a crumbling shell of a farmhouse — trusting in each other to make a new beginning!
Faith, hard work, and generosity not only carried them through the hard times, but led directly to the success of the Missouri Star Quilt Company — revitalizing a small town along the way!
About the Author
Jenny Doan is the smiling face of Missouri Star Quilt Company. Stitching together simplified quilts full of love and laughter, she makes quilting easier, more accessible, and friendlier than ever before. Watching her tutorials feels like coming home again. With over 750,000 YouTube subscribers and more than 225 million views to date, Jenny has sparked enthusiasm for quilting and warmed her viewer’s hearts across the globe.
When she moved with her growing family to Missouri over 20 years ago, she never imagined that someday they’d have a successful quilting business. Like many small towns across America, employment was scarce, so in November 2008, on a modest budget, the Doan family bought a building in Hamilton and started Missouri Star Quilt Company. At first, they offered basic quilting supplies and machine quilting services, but business picked up when they started posting videos of Jenny teaching quilting tutorials online. From that time on her life changed forever.
