SFF- J and O Fabrics Review!!




I do a lot of sewing, and I love being able to design my own styles in the comfort of my own home. I also enjoy being able to see a pattern or style and then copy it for myself! There have been many times I have seen a skirt, dress, jumper, etc. that I really liked, and then went home and made a "pattern" for myself! 

I recently picked out some new fabric from J and O Fabrics, a Dalcross Gray Polyester Dress Plaid. I am a huge fan of plaid skirts; there is just something so beautiful about the stripes, lines and blends of color! When the material came in, I realized that the picture on the website doesn't do justice to the lovely colors! With the gray background, blue, red and dark gray stripes, the fabric has a very appealing look.  With a 60" width, I had more than enough for my favorite pattern...a 6-gore elastic waistband skirt. This polyester material was very easy to work with, and it only took a couple hours to get it all cut out and sewn up!






I really like how the skirt turned out. It is something I can wear for casual, everyday or even a Wednesday evening Church service!




"Morris and Manya Jukel opened J & O Fabrics Center in PennsaukenNJ in 1962. Manya was a woman of the 21stcentury who proved she could establish herself within a male dominated business world. Manya created this business with the loving support of her husband, Morris, who saw her as a woman destined for success.
Morris and Manya were soon joined in J & O Fabrics by their son-in-law, Stan. He seamlessly blends the traditional family business values together with those need for a fast paced, growing, global business. Today, the family fabric traditions continue under the management of Stan and his son, Ryan.
J & O Fabrics now has a state of the art website, jandofabrics.com, which has increased our share of the retail fabric market. Going online has expanded our presence from a local to an international level. The online version of our New Jersey-based fabric store at jandofabrics.com has become one of the most shopped fabrics sites on the web, not just because of the quality and variety of fabrics we sell, but also because of the care we take with each and every customer.
We strongly feel that our presence in the textile industry and our capability for further growth are unparalleled.
Don't think that what you see on-line is where the selection ends, J & O Fabrics Center is the size of a supermarket......we can't post everything! AS one of the largest fabric stores in New Jersey, we have a huge inventory of fabric in our store, so if there is a fabric that you are looking for, just email us with your request. We also order from just about every fabric manufacturer, so if we don't have it, we can get it! Fabrics arrive in our store daily, so keep checking the web site to see what is new."
