2015 Row by Row Experience Fabric Promo
Guest Blog by Veronica Hofman-Ortega
Blank’s blenders go with the flow for 2015 water-themed rows.
If you participated in the 2014 Row by Row Experience this past summer, you know what an incredibly successful Shop Hop event it was for quilters and quilt shops across the country. With the announcement at Fall Quilt Market of the 2015 Row by Row theme—“Water”—we know you’ve already visualized your row or doodled design ideas on the nearest scrap of paper or napkin. We hope the creative juices are… shall we say, “streaming?”
To help you flow color into your Row doodles and designs, Blank Quilting Corp. is offering a special promotion on our popular blender fabrics—Splash, Fusion Illusion and Crushed sky—to our customer shops. These hard-working blender fabrics found their way into numerous patchwork, appliqued and paper-pieced rows in 2014 and will work just as diligently in your 2015 water-themed designs.
Coming up dry for ideas? Blank’s Beach Party collection (shipping in March) could be your inspiration, or Sakura’s 7157M and 7154M (shipping February) may float your boat. Whether your row illustrates falls or fountains, sea creatures or seascapes, water sports or water balloons, from now through September 1, 2015 take advantage of Blank Quilting’s versatile blender collections for your Row by Row shop sample, kits and quilts. With the race to submit a completed RxR quilt and be eligible for fabulous shop prizes, why not suggest a coordinating 108” backing to your shoppers for an easy, flash flood finish?
Our sales team is here to support you! Contact your Blank Quilting Corp. sales representative today or submit your blender order (Splash, Fusion Illusion or Crushed) through this web site. Splash, Fusion Illusion 10-yard put-ups, 8-piece minimum order is required. Enter “RxR Promo” in the Special Instructions block. If you send us photos of your rows using our fabrics, we’ll promote them on our Gallery page and social media sites.
I usually say “good morning” whenever my phone rings, day or night. I want to always capture the freshness of that feeling that a new day and a beautiful morning brings. It is the same feeling I have in launching this website, freshness of a whole new way to present the new and improved Blank Quilting Corporation to our customers.
I am well aware of the longevity and loyalty the original Blank had with its customers. I never want to interrupt that relationship that quilt shops, designers and independent quilt shops have built over time with the brand. As the new owners, the goal is to enhance the existing relationship and earn the opportunity to show you how we can serve you much better.
The first goal when we bought the business was to align inventory in such a way that you will not have to wait on back orders or wait for products that won’t ever ship. We ship close to 100% every time.
The second goal was to create trusting business relationships with the customers. This may be a little difficult as credit isn’t automatically extended to everyone as was the case with the previous owners. However, over time, we want to be your trusted partner in your business and we want to help you grow which in effect helps us grow.
The third goal was to maximize the ease of which we do business. The first hurdle is that we are a New York Corporation and we need to collect ST-120 forms and business licenses from all of our customers (if you haven’t already done so for any of our other companies: Henry Glass Fabrics, Studioe Fabrics or A.E. Nathan). It is a minor hassle, but after that we want to introduce you to a whole new way of shopping online with us on this site.
Please call me if you ever need ANYTHING, seriously. As I always say, if you don’t contact me or someone at my company about a problem we have no way of fixing it. We truly understand that the fabric business is not perfect and will do whatever it takes to make our customers happy. That being said, if you are not satisfied with something going on at our company, I am always here as a last resort. I aim to please!
We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship!
Thanks so much.
We are very glad that you made it here. Since Blank Quilting was purchased by the Jaftex family of companies in July, the mission has been to re-vamp the Blank Quilting Corp website to reflect who we are and how we can best serve our customers.
We hope you find your way around the website easily and return often to see what’s going on. This site will house all the latest information on the Blank Quilting lines. If you would please be so kind and sign up with your email address to “Keep In the Loop” about what’s going on with us, you will be the first to get news on specials, promotions and any other important corporate announcements.
We know that the Blank customer has had a long history with the legacy company and the goal of the new and improved Blank Quilting Corporation is to make that experience even better!
