Creations Store Tour

Creations Front of Store on Main Street

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. 

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. We recently convinced her to come back and help us cut kits on the days we are closed….can’t get away from us.

Aboriginal Log Cabin Quilt from Creations

Australian Prints — We Love Them

We have carried Aboriginal fabrics for many years in the shop. We now have over 160 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 Aboriginal Prints. The quilt shown was 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.

We are so grateful to all our wonderful customers who have supported us through our 45 years. Thank you!

We never seem to tire of working with the Aboriginal fabrics. We continue to enjoy making quilts using these fabrics.

Our biggest issue is being able to keep them in stock. See our current selection at Australian Prints.

If you would like to purchase this kit, you can find it at Sisterhood Quilt Kit. Our kit is 60″ x 70″ as we enlarged the pattern with one more row in with width and the length. This is such an easy quilt to make. Just one block and rotate it across the rows. After you make this quilt, you will want to make it again, maybe using up lots of leftover prints.

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, Island Batik and Timeless. You will find them online in our Cotton Batiks section.

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

When we opened our shop in 1978 there wasn’t much of an intersting quilting, yet! We opened at the end of the Polyester Double Knit era with all natural fibers.

We have continued to carry fabrics for sewing and are so happy to see a renewed interest in garment construction.

One of our favorite fabrics is rayon. It has a wonderful drape and can be machine washed and dried on low heat.

Interested? Check out our selection of rayons prints from Telio Fabrics. You will also see our great choices in rayon batik. See these fabrics at Rayons from Creations.

Precision Quilt on display at Creations

Perfection is 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 Perfection is Overrated Quilt Kit.

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

We carry many different kinds of fabric. We have contemporary, traditional, holiday, novelty and traditional. You will also find linen, rayons and even knits in our shop.

The fabrics we receive from Moda are among our favorites and designer Debbie Maddy is our alltime favorite Moda designer. We have carried everthing she has designed and her latest collection Yukata is absolutely great.

We used the simple Popsicle Sticks pattern and two of the Jelly Roll strips packs to make this great throw.

Kids Flannel display in Creations

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.

The fabrics in Salsa were designed by Stephanie Brandenburg and Frond Studios.

This quilt is so simple to stitch, but so dramatic because of the fabric.

You can order the kit at Salsa Dreams Quilt Kit.

Stephanie’s line of fabric looks like it has been painted.

Kaffe Fassett fabrics at Creations

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 Kaffe – Brandon – Philip – Martha 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.

Star Sprinkles pattern was designed by Atkinson Designs. This pattern uses just two blocks that are turned and alternated to create this interesting quilt.

It’s too hard to see here, but our background is a Kaffe Spot which is white with a light lime polka dot. So fun to see a different quilt when you get close.

To purchase this kit, see it at Star Sprinkles Quilt Kit.

This pattern is also great for all your scraps. The pattern comes in the kit, but if you just want the pattern you can find it here at Star Sprinkles pattern.

In the mood to sew something easy. Check our the Remy Pattern. You can make this blouse in just a few hours of sewing.

Never too early to think about sewing for the Holidays. We have a great selection of Halloween fabrics and this simple Halloween quilt kit, Cloud Nine. This is a quilt you can actually finish before THIS Halloween!

If you want an easy, fun Hallowen quilt, then see our Cloud Nine Quilt Kit.

Halloween Steampunk is back for another year as it was so popular last year and we sold out so quickly. Get your panel at Halloween Steampunk.

If you just want to see more of what we have to offer in the way of Halloween fabrics you can see them all here: Halloween at Creations.

Marcia Derse is a grahic designer who creates for Windham Fabrics. She has done some wonderful prints, but her Palette line of “solids” looks as if they have been handyed. We love the color selection and this quilt Fourteen on Point shows them off.

We have, of course, a kit avaliable that contains the pattern, and all the fabrics including binding. You can get that kit at: Fourteen on Point Quilt Kit

If you just want the pattern, you can find it at Fourteen on Point Pattern.

Want to see all of the Palette solids we carry? View them here: Palette Solids

Threads choice abound at Creations

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. You’ll find these on the Threads: Machine & Hand category of our Notions section.

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 Spargo’s Wool, Thread, Books & Needles.

Peepers - An essential tool for many of us

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 on your next visit to the store.
