Tales Of A Fourth Generation Textile Executive: Big Macher!

We interrupt this program for my regularly scheduled Tales Of A Fourth Generation Textile Executive blog that has nothing to do with that Free Sewing Machine Scott (FSMS) fellow.  I have had loads of blogs in the cue as I was trying to get ahead of my scheduled posts and then I was rudely sabotaged by this FSMS for like the last 3 weeks and I am not sure I see an end in sight.  Boring!  Annoying!  Free sewing machine….blah, blah, blah. Whatever!

This week I am bringing back an oldie but goodie. The Fabric Yenta is bbbbbbbbbaaaaaaaaccckkkkkkk! I am starting a new series under the Fabric Yenta moniker.   It’s called Big Macher.  I am going to sporadically talk about people that I meet in the fabric industry that I consider to be big machers.

If you didn’t know, a big macher is a Yiddish term for someone who is a big shot. I am going to lob a name out there.  This is a no-brainer to me. Pepper Cory is the first big macher that comes to my mind.  Pepper is so cool. She’s a true sage in our industry.  She knows everyone or should I say everyone knows her?   Not only am I happy that she is on my team, but she is also a friend and confidante.  Thank you Pepper, you BIG MACHER!

Big Macher #1!

By the way, if you are going to quilt market Pepper has a schoolhouse that you should attend especially if you want to meet a big macher among other things.  Besides meeting the big macher herself, at the schoolhouse, you can come and see some new works from industry designers using Peppered Cottons.  You can also learn how to adapt Pepper’s marketing program “RSVP-Designers” to create your own sales buzz and excitement in your shop.  I digress.

The timing of this blog is perfect because we are nearing in on quilt market and I am definitely expecting to see some potential big machers and chat them up for further additions of …..say it with me, BIG MACHER!!!!  (I hate multiple exclamation points, but I couldn’t help myself). Stay tuned.

Speaking of Quilt Market, I will be at booth 2319 (Studioe Fabrics) and booth 2218 (Blank Quilting).  Please come by and see me and all the new lines we are showing.  Also, you can take a look at the EverSewn sewing machines that FSMS is giving away.  Finally, if you would like to set up an appointment with me, please email me at scott@jaftex.com.

We interrupt this program for FSMS.  Darn it!  This FSMS dude doesn’t go away and he is driving me crazy, but making me happy nonetheless! I may have to boycott this clown or give him a beat down.  Oh, just go ahead already you big rude jerk….there is another winner to be announced, so I hope that Stephanie Hogan is reading this blog now.  Stephanie, may this sewing machine help to bring just a little happiness to your family during these difficult times.  Thanks for sharing your heart warming story!

Enjoy the rest of the week,

This is the Fabric Yenta and his alter-ego Free Sewing Machine Scott
