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 know that many of you are very eager to get back to resuming regular Quiltessential Co store shopping! We however, feel very strongly that we need to ensure that we are doing everything we can to ensure your continued safety and the safety of our staff and community.  This is our priority. 

One of the things we must do to ensure your safety is obtaining the proper and approved protective equipment, sanitation stations and do some store restructure. Supplies have been ordered and are on their way, but they are difficult to obtain in such a fast-changing market.

Therefore, we are planning a staged and gradual approach to ensure the safety of all.  Please stay tuned for another update within the next couple of weeks outlining how our store will handle opening, our hours, and the safety protocols. Also please check our Facebook page and Website for regular and timely updates.

In the meantime....we are still offering on-line shopping which is updated daily. Our customers have been really happy with our “window shopping” area and curbside pick-up service. We are here working to fulfill orders and long arm quilts from 10:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday to Saturday. We are helping via phone and email and know we are keeping everything safe and our customers served well.

Thank you for your continued support and patience.  We will see you soon.

Click here for info on our 'Window Shopping", Curbside Pick-up, and Mail out. We are busy doing this each day. PHONE NUMBER AT THE WINDOW ONLY IS 780-264-6461

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!

Take care and keep on quilting!

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.
