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!

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.

If you are available and a fairly confident quilter you could help us at Quiltessential Co with this project. We need people to cut, sew, quilt and bind. Please sign up at the store. We are having “sew days” to get quilts done and more.
