Ingrid Machtemes has been creating since she was a little girl. As a teenager she started with a love of quilting and pottery. For many years she worked as a potter and has spent many hours at the wheel creating original works of art and selling them from her studio – Pottery Plus.
As time and children allowed, her interests increasingly returned to quilting. The love affair was instant, and all-consuming. Ingrid designs her own quilt patterns and teaches quilting classes. She had been doing this through continuing education courses and her home business for several years before she made the leap into a full-fledged corporation. She opened Quiltessential Co. as a store in 2004 in downtown St. Albert, and has since expanded into her current location: a former gas station located at 100 McKenney Avenue, St. Albert.
At the Edmonton Guild on April 15th her talk is “Innovative ideas in the Quilting Industry”. Come and see how far we have come in quilting: new ideas, technology, engineered gadgets, speed cutting and piecing. How do we keep up with this? How do we incorporate it into our work? How can stores and your resource people help you?
