Jaftex Celebrates 85 Years! Bloghop & Giveways all Month!

85 years ago, Jacob A. Fortunoff (JAF of Jaftex), began peddling fabrics in New York City.
Their focus at the time was women's sleepwear and lingerie! 

Today, Jaftex is a leader in the quilting industry. Jacob’s grandson, Robert, changed the business of the company in the 1980’s, when he purchased companies like A.E. Nathan, Henry Glass, Stylemaker, Chanteclaire, Fabric Editions/Studioe and more recently The Blank Quilting Corp..

September marks the 85th Anniversary of Jaftex, and they sure know how to celebrate---
30-days of Blog-hop-bliss!!

Giveaways are scheduled at each stop throughout the Bloghop!

  1. What a great lineup of Quilty goodness! I'll be waiting for your hop day on September 9th Heidi!

    1. My favorite local quilt shop is Pine Grove Quilt Shop in Buffalo, NY

  2. I just went there for the first time the other day, but hands down my favorite local quilt shop is JEllen's House of Fabric near Cleveland OH! Sarah: crjandsbj(at)netzero(dot)com

  3. Quilt'n'things in Montrose, California always seems to have just the fabric I need to complete whatever assortment I've pulled from stash that just isn't quite enough.

  4. I like Shabby Fabrics.

  5. I buy almost all my fabrics by internet and there are many fav and look shipping prices before buy.On one I buy charm packs and others buy FQ bundles.

    Shabby Fabriics,Fat Quarter shop,Fabric Shoppe...there are fabulous online shops.

  6. I would have to choose Fat Quarter Shop.....don't have close Quilt shop close to us, only Jo-Ann's.

  7. OhioLori wrote what I was going to write -- I shop at Jo-Ann's because there isn't a local quilt shop, so I would have to say the fat quarter shop online as well. sarah@forrussia.org

  8. My favorite little quilt shop is in my hometown called The Quilt Shack and the owners are the sweetest, most helpful people. I love shopping there!

  9. Carolina Cotton in Kings Mountain NC is a small shop but friendly and helpful.

  10. Quiltessentials in Auburn Maine is my favorite quilt store...helpful, friendly with diverse quality fabrics

  11. My favorite shop is Quilters' Choice in Jupiter, FL

  12. My favorite quilt shop is Loving Stitches in Marysville, WA
