Update on Creations OPERATIONS FOR JUNE

View of Creations Store from Main Street

We will continue with the policies below for the month of June.  

We are going to open our shop to limited walk-in shopping beginning Wednesday, June 3rd. We will be open Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10 -2 .  The only entry will be thru the lower door facing our parking lot.  MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR ENTRY.  If you forget your mask, you can purchase one for a $5.00 cash donation which will go to the Humane Society.  It's not about how you personally feel about wearing a mask, it's about common curtiousy to others.

We will have a cork board outside the door to fill one of the 8 spots available.  When you leave, please remove your name so the next person can come in.  You can see our ingenous chalk board and read more details on our blog at Testing the Waters.

For your convenience we will continue to offer curbside pick-up.

 We have cancelled all retreats at The Main House until the middle of June as a precaution. If you don't already receive our online newsletter, take this opportunity to register.  Just look for the "Join  E-happenings" button below.   When you receive the confirmation e-mail, be sure and click the "confirm subscription" in the e-mail.  We will be sending e-mails to keep us connected with videos of what we are creating in the shop.

We appreciate our customers

“Kaffe

  We want to say thank you to all our customers who continue to support us while we make our way through this uncharted territory. It's so important to us that everyone who visits our shop feels comfortable being here. That's one of the reasons we have not opened our doors to walk-in traffic.

We are still trying to figure out how we will be able to accomplish the safety of our customers and staff while maintain the "Creations culture" of welcoming everyone in our shop.  The "sewcial distancing" and limited numbers will be a challenge, but we will work it out. 

We look forward to the time when we can welcome everyone back in our shop.  Until that time, we cannot even begin to express our gratitude to those who have visited our website and placed an order.  

We continue with curbside service.  It is amazing how many projects have been worked on thru phone calls, texting photos, and e-mails.  

Thank you again!!!!

We love the hand-dyed wools from Mary Flanagan that feature traditional wool suiting fabrics that have been over-dyed in gorgeous colors. Our hand-dyed wools from Wooly Lady feature such vibrant, luscious colors that they are quite inspiring. We also stock Sue Spargo's mill dyed wool, the wool thread to match, and now her hand dyed wool as well.

Great Stuff Online

Grabapple Hill Hand Stitchery

Hand Stitchery

The popularity of hand stitchery like redwork and backstitch or outline embroidery never seems to fade and we've found quite a few pattern designers that know just how to add a modern touch to this classic style. These designs look great in projects from tea towels to wall hangings and even work well in quilts.

Our online selection of patterns and books include themes related to holidays, gardening, and Texas as well as designs for wool stitchery.

Visit our Hand Stitchery department to check out our online offerings.

Anna's Awesome Applique Machine Embroidery

Machine Embroidery

Embroidery machines have made it easy to stitch colorful, elaborate embroidery designs on everything you can imagine. We love the simplicity and speed of stitching single designs onto the blank linens we carry such as homespun towels.  Visit our Embroidery Blanks page for our online selection.

We carry Machine Embroidery CDs in the store and offer a few of our favorites online. We love the whimisical machine embroidered applique designs from Lunch Box Quilts. A new favorite design company is Anna's Awesome Applique Designs - their Fiesta de Talavera, designed by Michelle Watts is a beautiful quilt. Visit our Machine Embroidery Design CDs page to find a selection of some of our favorites as well as pictures of some of the fun samples we've stitched from them.

Neat stuff

Neat Stuff

We find many other products that our customers will love, so we've created a Neat Stuff category. Stuffed animals is one of our favorite categories.  You will find jungle animals, farm animals, exotic animals, owls, and even the occassional dog an cat. 

We also love the cards by Shannon Martin.  The cards are funny without being mean and we can all relate to them. We also carry cards by Words & Watercolors.  You'll find cute socks in our shop along with the Baggallini brand of purses.

Visit our Neat Stuff department to get an overview of our Neat Stuff categories or use the Shop Online menu categories (on the left) to explore a specific category of Neat Stuff.  Most of our neat stuff is in-store only as it changes too quickly to ut online.  Another reason for a visit to the shop.

Celebrate Texas!

Texas Themed Fabrics, Patterns, Machine Embroidery, books & More

Over the years, we've found that Texas and Western themed products are very popular in the store. Between the fanatic Texans that live here and the people who visit when they come to the Texas Hill Country, they just can't get enough of Texas stuff! So we are constantly on the lookout for great Texas themed fabrics. Here on the website, we've corralled them all on our Celebrate Texas! page.

 

Plan to Visit Creations!

Creations has neat stuff throughout the store.

More Neat Stuff in Store!

We encourage you to personally visit Creations in Kerrville! We love to meet people and to help you find the perfect treasures. We're known for all of the "Neat Stuff" scattered throughout our store. Unfortunately many of these items just aren't appropriate to offer online -- you'll want to see them in person. For instance, we offer jewelry, scarves, purses and even hats - we love the flair they add to our clothing models - and our customers love them too!

Other items we carry are just too big or fragile to ship so we don't offer them online. For instance we also love to decorate the store with gorgeous antique spool cabinets - and every one is available for purchase.

The Baggallini line of purses, bags and rolling totes has been a tremendous success. Our customers love them!  Take a look next time you are in the shop.

If you'd like to see more of the latest "Neat Stuff" we have in the store, be sure to take our Store Tour. Or better yet, plan a visit to the Texas Hill Country and Creations, so you can take something home with you.

Creations is on Facebook!

We miss seeing you all in our store. So, we've decided this is a great time to embrace the Facebook to stay in touch with you. We invite everyone to visit Creations' Facebook page at: facebook.com/creationskerrville .

Tootie the Fax Cat

Tootie the Fax Cat

Have You Heard About Tootie the Fax Cat?

Have you ever sent a fax and wondered if it arrived? At Creations you don't have to worry, our cats look after the fax machine. For many years we had a cat that personally delivered faxes to us if we were away from the machine when one arrived. You say you don't believe it? Well, take a look for yourself - here's Tootie delivering a fax during a class. Read the whole story and see more fun photos at: The Amazing (But True) Tale of Tootie the Fax Cat .

Although she retired many years ago, the legacy of Tootie the Fax Cat lives on. She wasn't necessarily as customer-friendly as Domino, but she was quite the office assistant!

BHG Quilt Sampler Top Shop 2019

 

In 1996, Creations was first featured in Quilt Sampler's second edition.  Twenty three years later, we were invited to be their "encore" shop for Spring 2019.  It was quite an honor to be featured in this magazine twice.  

 

We still have copies of this edition of the magazine .  If you can't find it locally, we will be glad to send you a copy. Go to Quilt Sampler to place your order and see our featured quilt.

 

We so appreciate the support of our customers for all these years as we continue to bring you the best our fabric industry has to offer.
