Over the last decade, the Doan family business, the Missouri Star Quilt Company in tiny Hamilton, Missouri, has grown from Jenny's corner shop--with one quilting machine and two bolts of fabric for sale in the back--to become the largest supplier of pre-cut quilting fabric in the world. And the deep connection felt by the company's millions of loyal fans and customers boils down to one thing: their love for Jenny, the mother of seven (and grandmother to twenty-two and counting) whose humorous, easygoing, down-to-earth quilting tutorials have been viewed more than two hundred million times.

Now, Jenny is ready to give 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.

How to Stitch an American Dream is about something more than the chance to get to know Jenny Doan. It's an opportunity for readers to have their lives changed by one woman's remarkable story--an inspirational story of overcoming hardship and finding abundance through family, faith, and the power of giving.
