Creations Store Tour

Front view of Creations from Main Street

Grab Some Coffee and Browse the Store!

We've created a store tour to help familiarize newcomers with our style. Take a look at how the store looked recently. We've included lots of pictures of our current quilt kits, fabrics and more! However, the displays are ever changing, so don't be surprised if it looks different on your next real visit. Please note: our merchandise changes frequently! We can't guarantee that the products you see in this tour are still in stock. Thanks for understanding!

Our customers say that Creations is a joy to visit and browse. We enjoy getting to meet so many creative people! Three outside doors make it easy to get into the store as soon as you park. This is the view of the front of the store from Main Street.

Once you get inside, our staff will be happy to help you find anything in the store. We always have a pot of coffee brewing and a few chocolate snacks to give you even more energy for shopping.

Kathryn welcomes you to Creations

Welcome to our shop

Kathryn invites you to come in and take a look at our shop.  We are always eager for our customers to be able to visit in person, but sometimes that just doesn't happen.  Our distant customers who don't get to visit the shop often, tell us that sometimes they just need a Creations "fix".

We hope that our store tour will help you get that fix, or better yet, invite you to come and and see what we are all about.  Kathryn retired in 2019 after being part of Creations for 22 years.  She stops by to check on us every once in a while, so maybe you will catch her here and be able to say hi!

Globe Trotter from Quilt Sampler May 2019

 Australian Prints  --  We love them

 We have carried Aboriginal fabrics for many years in the shop.  We now have over 100 bolts and the fabrics are so interesting.  This area really catches your eye when you are in the shop.  

Most of us can't resist these prints and love to work them into our quilts.  

You can see all our favorites on line at Australian Prints.  The quilt shown will be featured in the May 2019 Quilt Sampler.  We were invited to be their "Encore" shop as we were previously featured in 1996.  It is such an honor to be featured twice.

Our kit is available for sale.  You can order a kit which includes the magazine at Globe Totter Quilt.   If you just want to order the magazine, you can also do that at Quilt Sampler Magazine.

We are so grateful to all our wonderful customers who have supported us through our 41 years. Thank you

 

 

 

 

Digital Linen prints

We Love Linen

 We have always loved natural fibers.  Linen is one of our favorites.  It has always been a challenge to find linen prints.  We now have a great source for digital prints.  These prints are amazing and the color shading is beautiful  

The linen we carry is machine wash and machine dry.  Of course, it wrinkles, but not nearly as much as a solid linen. These linens are also lightweight so they are great for our favorite oversized top. 

You will want to see these linens and you can check them out on our website at Digital Linen Prints. 

Bali Rayon Batiks make great clothing.

Bali Rayon Batiks Galore!

We absolutely love using the beautiful, soft, drapeable Bali Rayon batiks for clothing. They work great for shirts, lightweight jackets, skirts, and capri pants. So, we always have a big selection of these colorful fabrics. We even have a pattern for an infinity scarf made from rayon.

We have an entire online section dedicated to these gorgeous bali rayon fabrics - you'll find them on our Rayon Batik Fabrics page under the Sewing Fabrics section of the menu.

These fabrics are easy care and can be machine washed and machine dried...how easy can it be.  Come check them out. We make all of our garment models in size medium so everyone can try them on and see if they need a larger or smaller size.

Flannel fabrics

 Flannel is one of our Favorite Fabrics

We always have a great selection of Flannel fabrics.  This picture shows our more traditional flannels.  We also carry flannels that are great for kids quilts too.

You will always find flannel in our shop, regardless of the time of year.  We always have quilts to show you how great a flannel quilt can be.   

You might even have time to make one for yourself.

 

Kids flannel

 Kids Flannel

We love all the darling flannel prints that are available now.  There are so many contemporary prints which is just what the young mothers are looking for.  Did you know that our best selling baby color is gray?  Yep, gray and pink, gray and black, gray and mint.  

Next time you are in the shop, be sure and take a look.  These fabric change often, but you can see what is current on our website at Kid's Flannels.

 

Texas bluebonnet fabric and digital watercolors

We Love Texas "Stuff"

 We always try to have some interesting Texas themed fabrics along with all the bluebonnet fabric we can find. We have gotten the 2020 crop of bluebonnet prints from Moda and you will want to check those out at Celebrate Texas.

If you scroll past our crop of bluebonnet prints, you will see the artwork of Kathleen McElwaine.  We love her digital prints of Texas themed designs.  Know you will too.

Batiks

Can't get enough Batiks

 It's always fun helping customers select batik quilts.  The fabrics all want to go together. We carry a large selection from Hoffman, Kaufman, and Timeless.  

Hope you will consider visiting the shop when you are looking for batiks in our area.

 

Cactus Collage from Fiberworks

Collage Cactus

This wonderful wallhanging was made by Martha York, one of our many talented employees. It uses the Cactus Collage pattern from Fiberworks by Laura Heine.  The applique is all raw edge and fused down using Steam-a-Seam II.

Check out this pattern by Laura at Collage  Cactus. 

Grey Fabrics

We love all the tones of grey

It seemed that a few years ago you could hardly find a grey....who wanted that color.  Now it is a basic and we have quite a nice selection of grey tones. 

We have found that grey is the most popular for baby quilts.  It's combined with black and white, mint, pink and about any other color you can imagine.

We have just completed this quilt using the Pinata pattern and Hoffman's Digital Fat Quarter Collections in grey and red.

 You can order this kit on our site at Pinata Quilt Kit.

 

Snap Shot Quilt Kit by Kathy Doughty

Perfection if Overrated

This "wonky" version of a Churn Dash quilt pattern is so much fun.  Nothing has to be perfect!  You can order this kit online at Pefection is Overrated Quilt Kit.

You'll have a great time stitching this kit.  The fabrics are brigt and feature small contemporary patterns.

Lightning Strikes Pattern

Black and White is a classic

Everyone at some time will want to make a black and white quilt.  The best time to look for fabrics for that project is anytime you see them.

We always have a great selection of black and white prints.  Check them out the next time you are in the shop or view them on line at Black and White Prints.  

It seems that grey has slipped into the combinations of black and white and you will find many wonderful combinations in our black and white section.  It's also fun to add a pop of color. The "strikes" in the pattern are from a digital rainbow fabric we have.

 

Horizons by Kathy Doughty for Free Spirit Fabrics

Horizons from Kathy Doughty for Free Spirit Fabrics

We were thrilled to have had Kathy Doughty teach at The Main House in 2018.  We are always ready for a return when she can fit us in.   Kathy is a wonderful instructor and we encourage you to get in a class with her where ever you can.

Her last line of fabric, Horizons, is still available for order.  Seeds and Stems is also in the shop for order.  

If you want to see more of Kathy's Horizon line and her books check it out at Kathy Doughty books and fabric.   We know you will enjoy them as much as we do.  You will find her newest book, Organic Applique, here.

 

Kaffe Fassett and other Designers Fabric

Kaffe Fassett and Other Designer Fabrics

In the big room on our upper level, you'll find a huge selection of Rowan/Westminster fabrics from designers like Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably, and Philip Jacobs. You'll find fabrics from all these designers in our Contemporary Fabrics category under the Quilting menu.

In amongst these gorgeous fabrics, you'll find many of Kaffe Fassett's books. We also carry some of the prints from the Artisan collection which include some great large prints, batiks, and handwovens.  We also stock the shot cottons and stripes that have become basics for us.

We love making kits from Kaffe's fabrics.  If we choose to do a quilt from his books, we try to use exactly the fabrics used in the book. Click the Quilt Kits menu link to find them.

 

Wool quilt from Timeless Traditions

Wool Quilt from Timeless Traditions

We have a great selection of wool that is ready to be used for rug hooking or embroidery.  You will find wool from WoolyLady and Mary Flannagan as well as Primitive Gatherings.   You can see a bit of our selection on our website under the Wool heading.  Along with our wool you will find hand dyed velvet pieces as well as a great selection of silk dupioni.

The quilt pictured is a combination of two patterns from Timeless Traditions.  One of our very creative customers combined the patterns, added interesting textured fabrics as backgrounds and made this wonderful quilt.  We don't have a kit for this one as we helped her put together the fabrics.  We would love to help you create your own quilt too.

Threads

We love Thread

Threads to a quilter are like paints to an artist.  There are so many colors, weights, and uses for threads that you can experiment with them for years.  Our selection ranges from 100 weight threads for the smallest detail work to 12 weight threads that are thick and showy.  We carry threads for both machine and hand work.

We will be delighted to discuss threads with you on your next visit to the shop.  The right thread selection can make all the difference in your project.

We now carry Sue Spargo's mill dyed wool to go with her perle cotton threads for hand stitching.  You can see all of these on our website at Sue's wool, thread and needles.  

Jewlery and neat stuff

We have lots of great stuff to shop for on your next visit

We carry wonderful fabric, but you never know exactly what great "stuff" you will find on your next visit to the shop.  

Jewelry -- who doesn't love to look at that?  We carry some great pieces that will make the finishing touch for the garment you create.

You will also find watches, bracelets and hats.  Always expect the unexpected at Creations.

Peepers Reading Glasses

Peepers Eyeglasses

If you need just a bit of help with your eyesight, we have Peepers.  The strengths vary form 1.25 for those who just need a little help to 3.0 for those who need more.

Each pair comes with a case to keep them from getting scratched.

These glasses are fashionable and fun.  Creations has lots of "neat stuff" for you to see ono your next visit.

Quilt Sampler Top Shop 2019

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

We still have copies of this edition of Quilt Sampler.  You can still order the magazine from us as well as our Globe Trotter kit. You can order the kit on our website at Globe Trotter Quilt Kit.

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