OK, so this is a video hosted by giant company Google, applauding Youtube – BUT it’s still an amazing turnaround story: economically devastasted couple and village rejuvenated by – quilting classes online: Missouri Star Quilts.
Long before I saw this video back story, I had seen Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt company in action on video, and was struck by how down to earth, warm and welcoming she was onscreen. The quiltmaking taught was simple and yet effective. It needed to be. I haven’t even learnt yet, was just attracted to watching the process and the putting together of various elements into a new form. (ie much like curating a blog, the way that I do it.) I had no idea that the business began from such difficulty.
