#Scott Sent Me-2023-
  • No purchase is necessary, but I know it’s tough to control yourself. 
  • The contest:  Visit the most quilt shops in the US and/or Canada during September, October and November of 2023.  When you visit each shop, please make sure to tell them that, “Scott Fortunoff from the Jaftex Corporation sent me.” If the business owner doesn’t know what you are talking about, tell them to check out this blog post for more information at
  • Duration: Friday, September 1st, 2023 to Thursday, November 30th, 2023. 
  • On Thursday, November 30th, 2023, post your shop total visits on my @scott_fortunoff Instagram page and/or my @jaftexpresident Facebook page when queried. Each shop can only be counted once.
  • To play along with the #ScottSentMe2023 Challenge, you must have an Instagram or Facebook account and make it public for the duration of the challenge.  In order to win, you must follow my @scott_fortunoff Instagram account and/or my @jaftexpresident Facebook account.
  • On Wednesday, December 6, 2023, I will ask the top consumers who visited the most shops for undeniable proof of all the shops they visited.


  • To prove that a certain shop was visited, here are ideas of things to include in the photos (one or more forms of incontrovertible proof is ideal):
    • You must be in at least one of the proof photos for every single shop visited.
    • A picture in front of the shop’s signage. If the signage is outside, you will also need proof you went inside the shop.
    • A picture with the owner or a shop employee if that is not too disruptive to the business and they are willing to pose.
    • A picture of you in the shop, as long as there is something that makes it clear what shop you were in i.e. a sign, a banner or a flyer, etc.
    • A picture of the shop’s business card.
    • A photo of a shopping bag from the store.
    • A credit card statement with a purchase from the store.


  • Who can participate?  The truth is that this contest is for everyone.  The only exclusion would be fabric sales reps from any company.
  • Territory: This contest is open to consumers visiting shops in the US and Canada only.
