Let's Get Quilting! - January 26, 2015 Edition


Our parent company Jaftex Corp. is celebrating 85 years this year! We had so much fun last year with our "Countdown To The Holidays" event that we thought we would celebrate our parent company's birthday in a big way. 


First, if you are a quilt shop owner, make sure that you check out our big birthday contest [details above] because it is an amazing giveaway. Also, we want to see how you feature Henry Glass fabrics in your shop. We will feature your shop on our blog.


As a consumer, we are going to give away bundles of our beautiful fabric each week. Stay tuned by following here on the blog, liking our Facebook page and participating on our other social media. It's going to be fun!

This week we are going to give away a bundle of Elena Vladykina's Berry Cobbler collection.


a Rafflecopter giveaway
Good luck!

OMG - I haven't made any. I'm still getting over the holidays - we've been going non-stop since October.

Lisa Marie said...

I made a bunch of gifts for Christmas 2014 but so far haven't started for Christmas 2015. I will start in the next month or so as I like to make them throughout the year. Yesterday I made a Valentine's Day pot holder and a St. Patrick's Day scarf for my aunt, so I guess that counts for holiday gifts of some kind.

Janie said...

I have made one holiday gift so far this year. I just finished the binding last night. I need to stay on top of this, I ran out of time last year. Thanks for the giveaway!

I have been making birthday presents for my granddaughter Tess 10, doll clothes, coin purse, felt puppy. ALso, for my 3 yr old grandson Bowen, a finger puppet game - 5 monkey fingerpuppets and a crocodile finger puppet, 5 magnetized felt fish and bag with a magnet fishing pole. Then I will make some Easter things - but my CHristmas sewing list is already written and I start asap to take them all to England when I go in June.

I only made a couple things for the Grandkids. The adults don't exchange gifts. Gives me more time to make gifts for myself! LOL

Betsy said...

So far I have made a table topper for a gift

Debbie said...

I'm a newbie quilter (3 months) and I'm building my stash. These fabrics are great. I have some current stash that would go wonderfully with them. I'm definitely going to have to follow you on FB.

Michele R said...

I"m a newbie quilter (3 months) and I'm currently building my stash of fabrics and tools. Love the fabrics, they will go with some of what I have already. Let the ideas fly. Will have to follow you on FB to get some new ideas.
Thank you.

PK Sews said...

LOL. I haven't finished cleaning my sewing room after December's whirlwind of sewing. so the answer is none - I haven't started on next year yet.

Fabrics are gorgeous! Hope I'm the lucky winner!

We are hunkered down right now (Mon. Evening in the Hudson Valley of NY) waiting to see if we get 2 ft of snow from this storm,

OhioLori said...

Holiday gifts for next Christmas? Not a one so far lol...but working on Baby gifts for a new Granbaby due in April! :)

Juels said...

Not a one! Congrts on so many years in business!!

Kaye M. tkmattson@hotmail.com said...

The Berry Cobbler fabrics look great! My special favorite is the striped fabric with the designs on them, I'm sorry to hear about the nasty storm in the Northeast. Here in Nebraska we are having unusually warm weather with the highs in the 60's!

Kathy E. said...

Oh, how I wish I could say I've gotten at least one Christmas gift completed (or even started) at this time! But, I do not. I've been so busy working, that all I have time for is laundry and a bit of cooking!

Joyce Carter said...

I have about 15 soap savers, 4-5 gift bags, and about 8 pencil cases made for Operation Christmas Child 2015. And one sewn dress! I'm learning to sew the right way (lessons from a friend) so I'm hoping to feed my new fabric habit. :-)
