Marc Jacobs
Chicago, Illinois
Marc Jacobs grew up in Long Island, New York and moved to Chicago in 1993 to become an independent sales rep. His career began selling buttons exclusively. These days he can be a good source for ribbons, trims, fabric and buttons. He can always be found at either of the two international Quilt Markets during the year.  He also displays his wares at local rep shows. Twice per year in  Bloomington, Illinois.  Three times per year in Shipshewana, Indiana as well as the Holmes County Fabric Show in Ohio every July.  During periods when he is not accumulating ‘steps’ on his fitbit - he travels the midwest visiting his customers.
