We just finished our August Tuffet Retreat at The Main House in Kerrville, Texas.  Creations sponsored this retreat and we had 13 “tuffetiers” as they labeled themselves.

In our retreat there is plenty of time to sew so everyone has the chance to finish their tuffet.  We love them all.  The fabric choices were so different and each tuffet was so unique.  We had two tuffets made from old ties.  These gals probably worked longer at home to get those ties ready than they did at the retreat.  One tuffet was Australian fabrics made to coordinate with a quilt.  There was the vegetable dye fabric that looked like the old bedspreds form the 60’s….love that one being a child of the 60’s.

We had 3 square tuffets made in this class.  There was one from the Australian prints, one from the Serape stripes and one using the handwoven ikats.  Each was so different and so wonderful.

We are so proud of everyone who attended this retreat and wish them all future tuffet success.

If you want to make a tuffet, you can purchase our kit, pick your fabric and get started.  Order the supplies and pattern on our website at Tuffets.

We all worked together to complete the tuffets.  It was such fun to see them all coming together.  Hope you will want to make one yourself.

We have a winner at Creations in the Row by Row summer shop hop.

Sheri Sweet is our winner.  This gal gets around.  Her rows were from as far away as Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Sheri got a great pack of 25 bright batik  fat quarters.

If you haven’t been collecting your free patterns at quilt shops across the United States, there is plenty of time as the hop continues through September 6th.  Hope you will be able to stop by.  If you would like to see our row, you can check it out at “Home is where your fabric is“.

Warehouse Sale — Success

Pictures are truly worth more than words.  We are so grateful for all our customers who came to help us celebrate.Our 38th Anniversary event was amazing.  We think everyone came expecting a crowd and they weren’t disappointed.  We sold fabric at unbelievable prices and offered some great Horn cabinets.  Our sale had it all.  There was stuff from antiques to eclectic  “junk” to old shop hop decorations.  It was great fun.

We have a few ideas for next year to cut down on the “over crowding” we experienced. (After all, our warehouse is only 4,000 square feet.)

 

Mark your calendar for our 39th Anniversary
which we will hold March 31st and April 1st, 2017.
