Quilting from the Heart is a family owned business in Camrose, Alberta Canada. We opened in February 2000, and have been sharing our love of quilting ever since. In 2012, The Sewing Centre joined us, and we started selling Pfaff Sewing machines as well as an expanded selection of fabric and notions.
We are located at 4811 50 Street, Camrose, Alberta
Today, Quilting From The Heart & The Sewing Center reside in one building on main street in Camrose.
Quilting From The Heart is owned by Ardelle and Roger Kerr.
Roger is a former teacher & dairy farmer, turned quilter. He is a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor, and has made more Judy Niemeyer quilts than he can count. He's the person to ask if you need quilt math, or help picking your quilt fabrics.
Ardelle is also a former teacher, who now spends most of her time running our longarm quilting service. After quilting so many of Rogers Judy Niemeyer quilts, she has become quite well known for her spectacular quilting on these types of quilts. You can see more of her quilting at rosecityquilter.ca
Kathleen is Ardelle and Roger's daughter, and our store manager. She's probably the one you've talked to if you've emailed or sent us a facebook message. She keeps our store running smoothly and our website up to date, as well as writes and designs our in-house publications, such as our wool felt embroidery books, newsletters, email's, and more.
Rocky is Kathleen's husband and our machine technician. He spends most of his time at the store fixing sewing machines and helping customers learn how to use their machines. Of all our staff he spends the least time sewing, but he does enjoy machine embroidery when the mood strikes.
Eddie and George are Kathleen & Rocky's sons, who can usually be found playing in our classroom or trying to show you their favourite fabrics. Don't make eye contact if you don't have a few hours to play.
Val hangs out with this crazy family and makes sure that you can find everything you need when you come in. She has endless patience for the shenanigans we get into.
We hope to see you in the store soon!
