We are getting a new roof

Actually, we are getting two new roofs
It's going to be a bit of a mess for a few days
  We have been waiting many months for our turn to get a new roof.  It's going to be a huge job, but it's important that we keep Creations and The Main House in great shape.  We suffered damage in the hail storms last year. We have now moved to the top of the list for our roofer.  
  They will be here, we think, on Monday, May 7th to begin on The Main House and then will continue on to Creations.  Creations will be open during this process, unless we are concerned for our customers safety.  
  If you are planning a trip our way anytime between May 7th and 19th, you might want to check our website or give us a call at 830-896-8088. 
  Parking will be the best in our satellite parking lot to the side of The Main House.  

             Karen Stone
returns to The Main House    

June 4th - 7th, 2017        

   Karen Stone combines colors and fabrics like no one else in our industry. We have been so blessed that she has taught for us many times at The Main House.
  Karen has a variety of great techniques she shares as well as how to work with unusual fabrics in a project.  This year will be no exception.  She has created a quilt for us to work on that features many of her techniques. Karen's flexibility will allow you to work on any of her quilts, just try her techniques, or work on an unfinished project from any of her quilts.  It's a wonderful relaxed atmosphere of creativity.  With unlimited sewing time, you will be able to work at your own pace.
  If you are eager to work with color, and fabrics, then this is the class for you.  The quilts pictured belong to Karen. You will have the chance to see these and many more during the class. The quilt she has planned for this retreat is "Wonderful World" and you can see it on the registration page.  Remember, you can work on any of her quilts if you prefer.
  This 3 1/2 day retreat is $595.00 and includes 3 nights stay at The Main House, 9 meals, and the class with Karen. We would also love to have you as a day student which includes all the meals and the class for $445.00.
   You can register for this retreat on line at  Karen Stone  .  You can also give us a call at 830-896-8088, and ask for Julie.  We will be glad to register you on the phone.

Debbie Maddy returns to The Main House

Indigo Dyeing and Shibori Stitching

September 24th - 27th
     Debbie Maddy will be at The Main House, September 24th - 27th with one of the most fun retreats we have ever offered.  She will be teaching indigo vat dying.  You can use any plant fiber such as cotton, rayon, bamboo, linen or silk.       The garment pictured shows rayon that Debbie dyed for us.  We gave her 3 yards, she dyed 4 different pieces, and then we combined them into a great garment and scarf.  
   It's very intriguing just to see how this process works, but then to come away with some great fabric is such a plus!  
   Make your plans to spend 3 1/2 days with Debbie at The Main House.  
  The 3 1/2 day class includes 3 nights stay at The Main House along with 9 meals.  The total cost is $595.00 which covers everything except your supplies.  We would also love to have you as a day student for $445.00 which includes everything except the 3 nights stay.  
  If you have not attended one of our Main House retreats, make 2017 your year to join us along with Debbie and create your own exciting fabric.  
   You can read more and register on line at   Debbie Maddy Retreat  If you are more comfortable chatting on the phone, just give us a call at 830-896-8088 and ask for Julie.  Don't wait too long as we have only 5 spots left.

      Dreamer by Carrie Bloomston

               Wonderful new collection from Windham

    We love all our fabric, but every once in a while there is one of those collections that arrives that everyone seems to love.  Dreamer by Carrie Bloomston for Windham fabrics is that group.
   We have carried several of her collections and each one was special.  This group features a feather print that we just had to use for a shirt.  
  One of our favorite bags is the Maxwell Bag so we could use lots of the fabrics in this pieced bag.
  Check it all out on our website at  Dreamer .  Better yet, come in the shop for a visit and see this great collection.  Bet we will have something else made from it soon.
