Established in 2000 with one mission: to bring a high-quality fabric store to Northern Alberta.
A Husqvarna Viking sewing machine retail dealer since 2003
and HandiQuilter Longarm machines since 2019 is representative of the quality products offered.
The store reflects both country roots and a modern edge.
You are sure to be greeted with a warm welcome and we encourage you to wander and enjoy our quilt gallery along our 14 foot ceilings that are changing regularly to capture the artistic spirit in everyone.
Our passion for excellence inspired us in the beginning and continues to drive us today. We pride ourselves on offering a superior shopping experience and in the long-term relationships we’ve built with our customers.
Come create something special with us!

Lindsay hangs out with us a few days a week playing with our tech and online presence "stuff".
She has quilted several of our quilts that hang in our gallery using our HandiQuilter Infinity 26 floor model.
Come see her on Tuesdays and Thursdays - you will find her either behind the longarm or a computer or dreaming up some new colour combo that "has" to go in a quilt. She's got a great eye for colour!
When she is not here, she keeps busy chasing cats (one of which was rescued right outside our front door!) and runs her own longarm business, Arrow Quilting.
