Happy 85th Anniversary Jaftex!
Linda Lum DeBono is a fantastic designer and one of Aurifil’s biggest cheerleaders! When she sent out the call for many friends to come celebrate the Jaftex Corp. 85th anniversary, we could not wait to join in on the fun!
Part of the blog hop was the option to showcase the gorgeous fabrics by the fabric houses of Jaftex Corporation in a project of the blogger’s choice. Henry Glass & Co., Inc. provided me a rainbow fat quarter bundle with 20 fabrics full of potential! For my project, I chose to make a Log Cabin cushion cover. The log cabin is the symbol of home and I could not think of a better block to celebrate a family’s successful 85 years of business!
For a little Jaftex Corp. company history, the company 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.
Congratulations Jaftex on the many years of growth and success and to many more years of a great business!
There is still time to visit all of the fabulous guests in the blog hop to share in many inspiring projects and giveaways!
