My name is Julie, but my friends call me Jules. I started JMark Afghans, etc. in 2005 to share my love of soft, cuddly afghans and ~ honestly? ~ all things crocheted. (Well, that - and I ran out of storage space!)
Though we've grown to include accessories - hats, and scarves, and shawls, baby layettes and blankets, and items for the kitchen, our first love has always been afghans.
An afghan is a hand-crocheted (or knitted) throw or blanket.
Made from the same type of yarns used for sweaters, scarves, hats, and shawls, Afghans come in a variety of sizes, patterns, and weights.
Some Afghans are tightly woven, and incredibly warm and cozy ~ and heavy. Others are lighter, more lacy, decorative, and beautifully elegant.
We even have two styles that are handmade using 2 strands of yarn. These Afghans are double thick, soft, and oh, so perfect for winter nights and afternoon naps.
There are machine-woven 'items' available on the Internet that call themselves Afghans, but - as a purist - I believe that only those which are handcrafted deserve the name.
Okay, we're not asking anyone to reinvent the wheel. But when you want a blue-and-brown Afghan, you shouldn't have to spend all day searching the Internet. At JMark Afghans, we think it should be very, very easy to get just what you want.
Unlike web sites where styles and color options are limited, we let you tell us what Afghan size, shape, and color(s) will make You blissfully happy. JMark Afghans doesn't keep an inventory ~ so no item is ever out of stock, and You never have to settle for almost-what-I-needed.
Have a favorite Afghan or Scarf pattern, but don't crochet? Let us know. We'll work with you to get it made.(Afghan images on our website are examples, using our favorite colors or yarn we had on-hand, of the possibilities for your personal 'design'.)
