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!


Our staff and customer’s health and safety are our number one priority and we are temporarily closed to walk-in customers. We will re-open when appropriate. We will be at the store working to fulfill orders and long arm quilts 11am-4pm Monday thru Saturday. Our staff have been truly remarkable throughout this uncertain time.

New KIT KLUB for pick up or mail out will be available soon. Let us make you smile! We will be posting our current projects and pattern ideas and we would LOVE to see all your creative efforts while you are cooped up at home. 

We have a business Facebook page but are unable to answer messages quickly via the Facebook messenger app. Please direct all inquiries by phone or email only and we will do the absolute best we can to help you. Our customers mean everything to us so let us stay connected and make it through this together!

Jessie's House
Quilts needed

The Jessica Martel Memorial Foundation is finalizing construction on Jessie’s House with plans to open on April 1st, 2020, offering shelter from domestic violence to individuals and families within the Sturgeon Region, Alexander First Nation, Edmonton Garrison and the City of St. Albert.  Hoping to offer the comfort of a quilt to each client, the Foundation is looking for donations.  If you are a quilter, please consider donating a quilt to Jessie’s House. You can drop off your donation at Quiltessential Co, 100 McKenney Ave, St. Albert.

We have completed several quilts, received beautiful donations and are currently looking for people to quilt and bind or put together quilt tops. You can sign up with a simple email to us and we will call when something to work on is ready for pickup.
