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 March 1st 2022. 

To best serve ALL our clients, we at Quiltessential Co will ask anyone that comes into our store to continue to wear masks when the provincial mandates are lifted on March 1.  We serve clients of all ages and of all health care statuses, and we believe this allows us to keep as many people feeling safe and secure as possible. This also helps us reduce potential transmission of not just Covid-19 but any communicable illness. Our staff and customer’s health and safety are our number one priority.

Please bring your own mask. We will have some available in case you forget yours. As much as we want to see your smiling faces again, we want to ensure that we can continue to do what we do with as few dangers for our staff and customers as possible.

The past months have been difficult for everyone, and we hope that we will soon be more secure and quickly back to a new “normal”.   

• We will continue to wear masks, and do the same cleaning and sanitizing as we have done since Covid started.


• You must wear a mask to cover nose, mouth and chin
• We ask that you use the hand sanitizer.

  • We will help you as much as possible for everyone’s safety.
  • Bathrooms are not available to the public.
  • All on-line orders and paid merchandise is 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.

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"
