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. 


We know that many of you are very eager to get back to resuming regular Quiltessential Co store shopping!


NEW JULY 1ST 2021. We will continue to monitor and adjust, but many customers and staff have not been able to get their second shot and wait 14 more days. Therefore after a LOT of thought about safety for staff and customers we are implementing the following:
• We will continue to wear masks, and do the same cleaning and sanitizing as we have done since Covid started.

We are asking that:
• You wear a mask or we will supply a mask if you do not have one.
• You use the hand sanitizer.


  • We are relaxing the "no touch" policy. We will help you as much as possible for everyone’s safety.
  • The front door is unlocked until we have 5 customers inside. The door will then be locked and we ask people to wait while we can give those inside our assistance.  Your patience is appreciated.  
  • Bathrooms are not available to the public.
  • All on-line orders and paid merchandise is now to be picked up in store.

We will continue to offer the fastest and best service that we can. Stay safe and we will see how the next few weeks go.

"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"
