Descending into the Depths of Hell: Our Trip to Missouri and Kansas: Missouri Star Quilt Co.
Missouri Star Quilt Co. This a world famous--I am not kidding--purveyor of quilting kits, supplies and implements. The company was founded in 2008 by Jenny Doan, a resident of Hamilton MO who turned her hobby into a multi million dollar business. "Doan has been called "The most famous quilter in the world" due to her over 350 YouTube tutorials that have been viewed more than 110 million times. In 2015, two of her children who handled the business end of Missouri Star Quilt Co. received the National Small Business Persons of the Year award." (Wikipedia)
We rewarded ourselves with some gelato before we got back on the road. We stopped again in Jamesport MO for what we hoped would be another interesting small town experience but both we and the town were pretty tired and we disappointed each other. With that we made our final leg of the journey into Clyde MO and the Monastery of the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration where we would stay for the next two days visiting Sr. Paula.
