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“.
We completed our June tuffet retreat last week. Everyone went home with a finished tuffet. We took a group shot of just the tuffets. Can you see the oddball? This retreat we had one square tuffet. The square tuffet requires a few more sewing skills, but they are well worth the effort.
Our next picture will show you the maker of each tuffet. It’ fun to match up the tuffet with its owner.
These gals came from Houston, Cypress, Midland, Boerne, San Angelo, Junction, San Antonio and even a few from Kerrville.
We have another tuffet retreat scheduled for August 23rd thru August 25th. There are only 3 spots left in that one, so give us a call at 830-896-8088 if you are interested.
The retreat begins at 1pm on Tuesday. We get started and sew that afternoon and evening. We stitch all the next day and finish the construction on Thursday morning. The retreat is over after lunch so that everyone has a chance to get on the road if you are travelling. You can stay for two nights at The Main House, stitch with unlimited sewing time, have us prepare your 6 meals and have two instructors help you finish your tuffet for $270.00 plus supplies. If you want to come as a day student, the fee including meals and unlimited sewing time is $170.00.
If you can’t make it to a retreat, but you would to order a kit and foundation pattern, you can do that online at Tuffets.
We finished our second tuffet retreat earlier this month. There were 11 gals in the class and we finished 11 tuffets. Everyone loved their tuffet, and we loved how different they all looked.
Take a tuffet class with us and know we will be there with the right equipment to get your tuffet finished. Our next class is June 28th – 30th, but it is currently full.
Call us at 830-896-8088 and we will be glad to put you on our waiting list.

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.
