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.

Quilt Sampler Top Shop 2019

Quilt Sampler Top Shop 2019

Creations was first featured in Quilt Sampler in 1996, it's second edition.  Now 23 years later we have been 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.  

The magazine comes out in mid May and we will have it available for order on our website as well as our quilt kit.  We now have the magazine and our quilt kit available for pre-order.

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. 

 

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.  

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 "Enclore" shop as we were featured in 1996.  It is such an honor to be featured twice.

Our kit will be available for sale as soon as we get the magazine as it has the instructions.  You can pre-order a kit (which will include the magazine) 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

 

 

 

 

Cactus Collage from Fiberworks

Collage Cactus

This wonderful wallhanging was made by Martha York, one of our many talented customers. 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.

 We will have the kit available shortly to order on line.

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.

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.
