Jaftex85thAnniversaryI

Jaftex is celebrating their 85th Anniversary and today is the first day of the Jaftex Blog Hop. Jaftex Corp. was founded in the 1930’s when Jacob A. Fortunoff started selling fabric on the streets of New York. At that time, the mainstay of the business was women’s sleepwear and lingerie. In the 80’s, Jacob’s grandson, Robert, dramatically changed the business of the company. The business focus was transferred to the over the counter quilt industry when Robert purchased companies like A.E. Nathan, Henry Glass, Stylemaker, Chanteclaire, Fabric Editions/Studioe and more recently The Blank Quilting Corp. Robert is now joined by his two sons, Scott and Greg. Scott currently is the President of Studioe Fabrics, The Blank Quilting Corp. & A.E. Nathan Co., Inc. Greg just joined the business in late 2014 and has successfully spearheaded the company’s foray in to precut fabrics among other contributions.

So, in celebration, Jaftex is hosting a month long blog hop with lots of prizes. You will get a chance to win fat quarter fabric bundles at many of the blogs, but the big news is the big prizes to be awarded in October:
