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 the fabric and notions.
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. When she isn't at the store, she does longarm quilting and travels around the world teaching longarm and free motion quilting. See her quilting at kathleenquilts.com.
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.
Our staff also includes Susan, our machine embroidery expert & knower of where everything is; Karen, who is new to quilting, but is great with colour; Coleen, who teaches our beginner classes and is great to help you with any sewing questions; Trudy, who makes the best cookies anyone has ever had; and Yvonne, who's always game for something new.
We hope to see you in the store soon!
