Quilting Legend Will Visit Lawrenceburg In September
Press release from City of Lawrenceburg
(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The quilting industry has been revolutionized! Love and passion for the look and feel of a quilt no longer requires years of dedication to create. Thanks to quilting extraordinaire, Jenny Doan, it is now possible to create a beautiful quilt in a week or even in a day (one that may look complicated when in actuality it was as simple as sewing a straight line)!
Jenny Doan a Hamilton, Missouri native has published 2 magazines; Fons and Porter and her most recently released her very own magazine; The Block. Her magazines are full of great ideas and are always a sellout. Over the past few years, Jenny has become a veritable superstar of the craft through her development of ways to make beautiful quilts efficiently using pre-cut fabrics. Her quilts styles range from traditional to contemporary and she is a hit with quilters all over the world! Her online tutorials have drawn as many as a million viewers; some from as far away as South Africa. She has changed the quilting industry forever by embracing social media and by streamlining the art of quilting while retaining the beauty of the craft. Her methods have drawn younger quilters, thus further growing the industry in a time where other industries are struggling. She has been featured on the NBC nightly news, and the Wall Street Journal.
Jenny has taught thousands to quilt simply by watching her videos. Her fans find her style less intimidating than that of other quilting tutors. “She makes you feel as if it is not only possible, but easy. The greatest thing about Jenny is that she has not changed even though she is the hottest thing in quilting, she still laughs when people ask for her autograph in Walmart.”
Jenny will be coming to Southeastern Indiana’s One Stop Shop Hop on September 19 and 20, 2014 at the Lawrenceburg Event Center in historic Lawrenceburg Indiana. The shop hop will feature vendors from all over the country, Jenny will be hosting 2 trunk shows each day on Friday, September 19 and Saturday, the 20th.
