    Great Article About MSQC!!

    They posted this on Facebook. It must be a local media source. I want to go visit there so much. I live only four hours away!

    I love Jenny's tutorials. I'm so happy for them that they are doing so well.

    It was a great news piece. Made me laugh when they said that 2/3 of the mail going out of the Hamilton Post Office is from MSQC. They are also the largest employer in their county. Hopefully the good folks of Hamilton are very happy with their success.

    The Kansas City TV news station was in their shop today filming a story for the news. I saw it on MSQC Facebook page.

    The shop is worth a stop if you can do it. It's on the way from here to Nebraska (in laws) so I've done it. Everyone who works there is very friendly and it's set up so you can watch Jenny filming tutorials if she happens to be doing it while you are there.

    Jenny and her family deserve many, many kudos for taking a risk in a "down" economy and helping revitalize the town. I just love Jenny's enthusiasm and sensibility when it comes to all things quilting. Love her tutes!

    One step at a time. One person, one family is all it takes. So many post offices are closing. Glad to see Hamilton needs additional personnel to keep the mail flowing. Big Kudos to the Doan family.

    Wonderful!! I can not tell you how much I would love to travel to MSQC. Wouldn't it be fun to take Jenny to lunch. She has provided all of us with hours of pleasure. I am sure I would buy out the shop. Her enthusiasm is contagious.

    I love how much they give.. its not all about take with them.. order something and get an e-mail that is cute and funny about the shipment.. receive the package and get a personal note from the warehouse.. Those are not seen with other companies.

    What a great story! I love watching Jenny on youtube. She is so personable. Kudos for the family for stepping into their dream when the economy was in the tank and they are in a small town. I hope the business continues to boom.

    Can't wait to see Jenny! Our guild is sponsoring a workshop with her in August.

    It's great to hear success stories on small town businesses.

    Jenny is so down to earth. She shows you don't need to spend thousands on a sewing machine. Her patterns are great, and her tutorials are simple to follow. My kind of quilter!

    It is a heartwarming story. One person's vision extended to the family and then to the quilting community and then the town and out into the world. How cool is that! I am very proud of Jenny Doan. Talk about having faith!

    That's so true. Jenny is a quilters Oprah! It is all so fun and positive. I think that is what makes her, her tutes and family etc. all so special. Many of us have been on the short end of things. It's nice to see just regular folks make it big and in a little town too. I wish them years and years of success and well-being. I hope she never runs out of ideas and patterns!
