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.
We have finished our first Tuffet Retreat at The Main House. There were a total of 16 finished tuffets, but we had some gals who finished and left before we could get this group shot.
Our retreat was 2 nights, 2 days of stitching, meals and lots of fun. It was wonderful to see how different all the tuffets looked. We hope you will be able to join us in one of our future tuffet retreats.
Our next retreat is March 22th – 24th. The class begins at 1pm on Tuesday the 22th. We’ll sew that day, all the next day, and finish with lunch on Thursday, March 24th. The cost of the retreat is $270.00 which includes two nights stay at The Main House, all of your meals, and unlimited sewing time. We would be delighted to have you as a day student for $170.00 which includes all your meals and unlimited sewing. We have two instructors who will help you complete your tuffet. Each student has 3 tables to work on. Our studio is large and has great lighting.
We have the tuffet foundation pattern available for $29.98 as well as the tuffet kit for $129.00. You must have a kit and pattern. Other supplies you need are minimal and a complete supply list will be sent upon registration.
If you want to do a tuffet on your own, you can order the pattern and kit on our website at Tuffets.
Sixteen gals were in our tuffet class and 16 left with finished tuffets. These close ups show you there are endless possibilities for your tuffet.
We have a summer retreat scheduled beginning Tuesday, June 28th – Thursday June 30th. You can register by phone at 830-896-8088.
Should you have to cancel a Tuffet Retreat, your refund will be given in the form of a Creations’ gift card.

If you have THE DREAM MACHINE then you will love this class. We will work with features that ONLY this machine has. These are the features that set it apart from every other embroidery machine available.
You will learn how to scan in a drawing and have your machine stitch it out. You will be able to scan in your handwriting as well.
This machine can help you with your quilting, and we will show you how it can quilt just the areas you want!!
Even if you took this class before, I bet you could use a refresher. We always have new things to show each time we do a class so don’t miss this one.
Decorative Sewing with the Circular Sewing Device
Thursday, March 31st 10:00 – 4:00 pm
Lunch provided by The Main House
Class fee $80.00. If you purchased your machine from Creations, we will have a $20.00 gift card for you at the end of the class.
The use of the Circular Sewing Device and decorative threads has endless possibilities for creating wonderful designs on your sewing machine.
We will work with metallic threads, and heavy threads. We’ll stitch over cords and ribbons. The most fun is bobbin work which allows you to use lots of different threads that would never go thru the needle.
The circular sewing device sells for $119.00 and you will need it for this class. It comes with two extra feet that we will also show you how to use.
Even if you have taken this class before, we know you will want to come again as we have new stitches and ideas. We will show more bobbin work this time around as it is so much fun!
If you would like to register for any of these classes, please give us a call at 830-896-8088. Hope you will find one that works for you.
We have been in a Western print drought here in the shop. It seems when one company does western, they all do. And then there is a long dry spell.
We are gotten in western lines from Moda, Maywood, and Blend fabrics. Each line has it’s own personality. Moda actually has two lines, Texas Proud and Sundance Trail. You will find bluebonnets in the Texas Proud line and some great western prints in Sundance Trail.
Maywood’s line is called Hold ’em or Fold ’em. Blend fabrics came thru with brightly colored boots and horseshoes.
There is something for everyone NOW!!!!
Visit the Texas/Western Fabrics page of our online store to find our latest selection.
This picture shows only a portion of the batiks we stock. You will find fabrics from the latest collections by Hoffman, Robert Kaufman, Moda, Anthology and Island Batik.
We always have finished quilts to show how these fabrics can be used together.
While you are wandering in the shop, be sure and see all the wonderful antique spool cabinets we have.
Visit the Cotton Batiks section of our online store for our extensive online selection of cotton batiks.
We have carried Australian prints for over 10 years in the shop. Our inventory has steadily increased as the interest in these unusual and dramatic prints has risen.
One of our favorite quilts to use with these prints is BQ4 by Maple Island. It allows you to present these great prints and showcase them in a quilt.
We hope you will visit our “Australian” department and see what great things you might create with these fabrics. You can see many of our Australian fabrics on the Australian Fabrics page of our online store.
While you are pondering which quilt to make, you could easily be tempted by some of the great jewlery we have displayed with these fabrics.
