Creations from Main Street

Creations was established in 1978 and for the last 38 years has specialized in fabric for quilters and sewing enthusiasts. Of course, we have plenty of patterns and books to help you create projects with our beautiful fabrics. In addition to quilting, clothing fabrics, over the years we've added hand stitchery, machine embroidery, and wool applique to our product mix.

You will also find purses, jewelry, socks and cards to tempt you or your non-quilting friends.  We hope you will come by and enjoy a cup of coffee and maybe a bit of chocolate.  

We are located in Kerrville, Texas in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. We are just off IH-10, 60 miles north of San Antonio, Texas.

Creations is open every day: Monday - Saturday, 9:30 - 5:30 & Sundays from 12:30 to 4:00.

 

Creations has an extensive collection of quilting cottons from the top manufacturers.  We love to bring your the newest lines available as we discover new companies and designers. We are constantly adding to the fabric collections we carry as we search for the best batiks, contemporary, traditional, and modern fabrics.

We also carry a variety of fabrics for clothing and home decor. We still love to sew clothing and we enjoy using linens, silks, cottons, and more. We discovered long ago that home dec fabrics are often wonderful for clothing projects like jackets. Of course, our home dec fabrics are great for pillows as well as purses and bags.

In our shop, you can find cotton homespun, flannel, rayon batik  as well as silk dupioni.  We love to a variety of fabrics and enjoy both sewing and quilting.  You will find lots of models to inspire you.

We're always on the lookout for unusual fabrics for sewing projects so you are sure to find new types fabrics in our store and on-line.

Creations Opened in 1978

Creations was established in 1978 during the "polyester doubleknit era". I (Kathy) opened the doors with all natural fiber -- not one "poly" among us!! That was quite revolutionary during the 70's. We were often told "I'll be back when you get some doubleknit!" We didn't and we're not sure if they did. The picture left is of our original location on Water Street.

We added quilting cottons to our inventory in the early 80's but we never lost touch with our love for clothes sewing -- sometimes you need a little instant gratification. We're finding that lots of others who have been away from clothing construction are "coming home" too.

In the mid 80's, I was joined by my sister Julie. She brought with her all those "business skills" that are so necessary. After a few years we decided to incorporate and both have become equal shareholders.

 
From Our House to Yours

From Our House to Yours

In the early 90's we opened a second store, From Our House to Yours, located in the historic Rawson home, built circa 1895. That store specialized in home decorating - home dec fabrics, new and old quilts - antiques and accessories for the home and garden and was well known for the frozen cappuccino we offered customers.

We speak of it here in the past tense, because we decided to combine the two businesses. So, From Our House to Yours closed in January of 2000. The historic Rawson home became the home of Creations.

Over the years, we've carried on some of the traditions known to the house.
