JEANNE BICE, the television personality known on home-shopping channel QVC as 'The Sweater Queen', has died aged 71. JEANNE BICE regularly appeared on the network selling her 'Quacker Factory' clothing line whilst wearing her trademark headband, reports CNN International.
Bice was known for modifying everyday garments with sequins, beads, fabric Christmas trees and cartoon ducks. She soon gained a reputation for her colourful personality, and was often featured on E!'s 'The Soup'. A eulogy on the QVC shopping website read, "Jeanne chose to love. She loved what she did - creating Quacker Factory clothes, with 'sparkle and shine'. Clothes that made people Happy. She loved QVC. Everything about it. She loved the people: the executives who ran it, and the production people who worked so hard to make every show perfect. She loved the stars who appeared there, and had to pinch herself when others considered her one". Bice began her successful clothing line after her husband died, leaving her to raise their two children Tim and Lee alone. She chronicled her life in the 2005 memoir 'Pull Yourself Up By Your Bra Straps and Other Quacker Wisdom'.
JEANNE BICE developed a loyal fan base who enjoyed both her sequined sweaters, and on-air storytelling. The Wisconsin native reportedly turned 'Quacker Factory' into a multi-millionaire dollar business
