One Family Revitalizes A Small Town With, Yes, Quilts

Here’s a heartwarming story.

The town is Hamilton, Missouri.  The business is Missouri Quilt Company.  The owner is Jenny Doan.

The business draws people to the town, yes.  But the business also has a terrific web site with tons of free videos.  And the business specializes in pre-cut fabric–which is meant to make quilting FAST and easy.

Now, what is also fun is this piece of history:  JC Penny started in this same little town–as a salesman.  Years later he returned to open his 500th JC Penny store in Hamilton.

Yeah small town businesses.  (I hope you’re supporting yours and not the Big Box stores.)  And yeah quilts!
