Welcome to Quiltessential Co. Inc!

As an extension of Ingrid Machtemes’ passion for quilting, Quiltessential Co.Inc. has grown to serve the quilting needs of St. Albert, Sturgeon County, Parkland County, the greater Edmonton area, and points beyond. Quiltessential Co.’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff seek to inspire, teach, encourage and assist quilters to appreciate and enjoy the art of quilting. Available in person, by phone and through email, we hope to provide you with the patterns, kits, books, materials, tools, and supplies you need to get as much pleasure from quilting as we do. So whether you want to stop by to drool over the latest fabric, seek advice on color coordination, or just talk quilting, call or stop by. We would love to help you succeed! We also do long arm quilting on our Gammill machines upstairs.

Thanks for the review!
"To Ingrid and her amazing staff who went above and beyond to help quilters and crafters keep their skills alive. You found unique ways to pivot and give everyone the opportunity to keep doing what they love to do. You were always available to help a new quilter like myself get projects done and provide great advice. Although you could not initially keep your doors open, the drive through for pick up and mail out option was invaluable"

TILDA PIE IN THE HERE so check it on the website or in the store.
This years spring collection is fresh and happy. 
Growing up, I always heard I was an incorrigible daydreamer, never in the moment, my head constantly in the clouds. My mind would wander from the classroom into a world of shapes and colors, completely forgetting where I was. Constantly drawing and building things, often several hours going by, without me being aware of it.

This collection is a sweet and colorful nod to children like me who struggle with dyslexia and cope by creating alternative, creative worlds full of ideas – hence the collection name, Pie in the Sky. By being patient and continuing to create, you will eventually find your place in the world."
