About Our Shop
Tucked into the heart of the Panhandle of Nebraska, 7 miles SouthWest of Hemingford, you will find any
quilters dream store, Pat’s Creative. Pat’s Creative originated in 1975 with just a drawer full of DMC
machine embroidery thread. Through years and growth of the family, owner Pat Buskirk along with her 2
daughter in-laws, grew the business to be a garment sewers delight, with lots of fashion fabrics and
Bernina & Janome sewing machines. Free bi-monthly workshops, sewing and machine classes, seminars
and great customers helped Pats Creative to grow and expand. The quilting revolution in the mid 90’s was
a turning point for the business . Quilting fabrics and classes were then introduced to our customers. This
new generation in sewing has taken our business into where it is today.
Pats Creative has always been family owned and operated. It is currently owned by Sonya Buskirk and
daughter Shelley McConville. Their store is located on their family farm 3 west, 3 south, 1/2 west, and 1/2
south of Hemingford in a Morton steel building. Sonya’s husband Dean is our sewing machine technician.
We are proud to offer area to the area a complete line of Bernina, Janome, & HandiQuilter sewing/embroidery/
quilting machines, with lessons and full service. On any given day you may step into our shop and be
helped by any of our 4 generations-Pat, Sonya, Shelley, or Shaylynn.
