Thank you for your help today, sorting out the colors I had chosen. Much appreciated.

...On a different subject, Linda, I wanted to thank you and your staff for always being so kind to me whether I have come in for help with fabric selection, or with a question that I am sure they have answered a hundred times before.  I think I told you before that I live in Riverbend and never knew about your store, until I tried to sign up online for the "block of the month club" and you called me to say that because you  were in Calgary it would be much cheaper for me to come in to the store instead of getting it mailed to me - dhh.  After my first disaster with Goggle directions I finally found you.  Ever since then without a doubt your store has become my favorite quilting store in the city.

Thank you


I wanted to let you know that I got the kit two days ago.  I love the Hoffman batiks that you used! 

Thank you.

Pam E.

I was in Calgary over the long weekend.  I was the one who arrived at your shop just before closing when you were cutting Jelly rolls  for the quilt show.  Thank you for letting me shop.  I had a lovely time and enjoyed your shop.  Your batik selection made me think of a brand new crayon box--all those possibilities.
 I'll be back.

Hi Linda,

The pattern came today, and I like it alot.


It's been a long time since I ordered from you--Your service and the fabric was great!
I'll be in Calgary in May and look forward to seeing the non virtual shop.
That's all that kept me (from) a much larger order.

Thanks Shannon W.

Thank you so much.  I really appreciate the great service!  It was a pleasure to speak with you and your staff.  You will be hearing from me again as I'm sure both my Mom and I will find that we NEED something from your great selection.  Right now if we combined our stash it would probably start a small store but who can resist new material?
Thanks again - I'm looking forward to seeing the material when it arrives and I will certainly make it a point to come to the store the next time we are in Calgary.


My fabric arrived at 9 am on this beautiful sunny spring morning! . . ..Many thanks for the great service, guys! I'm delighted. 

I look forward to visiting Along Came Quilting again soon.

Best wishes,



Hi,  Received my fabric order this morning - customer receipt 1944 - and wanted you to know I love the fabric and can't wait to get sewing

with it.

Thanks, and hope to shop with you in the future.

Pam G.

Hi Linda,
Thank you so much for the information.  Yes, please proceed with the order as I am excited to receive it.  You have a wonderful website and I will return to do more business with you.
Have a great day.


 My little Dolls and clothes have arrived safely and perfectly packaged.

Thank you.

Hi Linda,

the fabric arrived a few weeks ago but due to the holidays I forgot to let you know, I appologize.

I'm very happy with the fabrics and thank you very much for the service,


Kind regards,
Shirley Jacobs

Letter received:

To the staff,

This is a letter of appreciation to you for the time and work you did in preparing the 12 Days of Christmas Kit. 

This is the first time in all the years that I have purchased a kit that actually had everything in it that was supposed to be there.


The fabric was good quality, cut accurately so there was not a problem cutting the appropriate pieces.  All the fabric was labeled well.  The directions were clear, concise and easy to follow.

I am not particularly good at co-ordinating colour and am in awe of those who do it well.  The colours here when put together made a lovely quilt.  I enjoyed working on it and am happy with the result.

Thank you for the pattern, "Lazy Afternoon Quilt".  It will be a project a little later on.  Also the broach - love it and wear it.  Thank you.

Hello...sorry I missed your call today. I will take the Floret Flannel in whatever length you have (I think you said you only had 1.25 meters) as I can still incorporate it into the quilt I'm making. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for the gift of the brooch. It is lovely! And, I would like to thank you for the wonderful service you offer. I love your website! You'll be hearing from me in the future!

Colleen Wack


Just a quick note to let you know I received the fabric in the mail yesterday at noon and it is just beautiful.  I will be doing this again once I plan my next project.

Merry Xmas and all the best in the new year,


Hi Linda

I want to thank you for the 12 Days of Christmas emails!  I came into the store this week and bought a number of stocking stuffers and a few gifts as well!

Thanks as well for the classes you offer at Along Came Quilting; I had a blast at the August long weekend retreat. ...  I look forward to making friends, learning new things and getting projects done!

May you and yours have a wonderful Christmas, full of happy moments, precious memories and good cheer!



Thank you very much! Very fast delivery, got it last week. Thanks for the quilt is lovely. I'll be ordering from you again for sure!...

Hi Linda...Just wanted to let you know that I received my package today...I can't believe you were able to stuff so much into such a small envelope!  Well done!!
The fabrics are perfect, and as well, I love the backing (flannel) color that you chose.

Thank you also for the pattern and pin (how cute is that?)

I will be sure to be in touch again when I am ready for another project, and will be certain to refer your site to any of my quilting friends here in Merritt.

Thanks once again for all your help.

Shelley L.

Hi Linda,
Thank you for matching the backing of the quilt  It arrived this morning with the mail (cute Mailman ).  I love the quilt and thank you for the beautiful Broach, will show off at the Guild....Thank you


Hurrah.....your parcel of material arrived today, both mine and Ella's.....Thank you so really don't know how much we appreciate your cooperation and dedication.  We phoned one another on receipt of the packets and Ella's first words to me were, "Are you stroking your material?"  Now you know how happy we were to get it.  Thank you once again and march on with strength.
God Bless and Thank you

I heard two of my quilting buddies signed up for the holiday chorus as well ! They were quite jealous when they saw it on the web page. I am really glad I found your shop it is spectacular !!!!!!
Thanks for being so good to me 

Sharon W.

Thank you I always enjoy doing your block of the month quilts and look forward to the next one. 

Thanks again and have a very Merry Xmas and all the best in the New Year.

Brenda W.

Thank you very much.  I look forward to getting home from a month out on the road and being able to sit down and finish the top.  I get so many great compliments from my last BOM from you I can't wait to get this one done too.

Thanks again.

You have the most beautiful Bali handpainted fabrics I've ever seen!  Thank you for being a part of the Quilt FabShop Hop.  Had it not been for it, I would have never seen your beautiful fabrics and kits.  I look forward to ordering from you as soon as my husband becomes employed again.   .... Keep up the great work!

Hi Linda

Congratulations, . . ..   It is my favorite quilt shop and it's not only the great selection of fabrics you carry that makes it so. You, your staff and the fellow shoppers I run into when I'm there make it an inspiring and fun destination every time I go in.

Thank you.

 Wendy H.


Just a note, Linda – looks like great ideas re: the classes!!  (Especially great that if we come on a Sunday, can leave stuff overnight for a Monday, etc.)  Great to see that you gals actually listen and answer us customers!! 

..., The store has never been better!! 

Wendy B.

Thanks so much Linda.

Also I can not thank each and everyone of you enough for all the help that you have given me. You guys are the best and my new saying is, if all else fails call "ALONG CAME QUILTING".


Hi Linda

I have included photos of 2 lap quilts that High Country Quilters made with the fabric that you & Trend Tex donated to our guild for use in charity quilts.  We have given these 2 quilts to Camp Horizon.  I believe that the quilts will be used by the children while they attend the camp.  We made them lap size so that they could be used for those in wheelchairs.  We have enough fabric left over to make 1 more quilt.  This will be on our agenda at an upcoming retreat.
Thank you so much for the fabric.   Please pass along our thanks to Trend Tex as well.  We appreciate your generosity and the opportunity to make quilts for those in need. 

Linda S.

Hi Linda,

Yes, please keep me on your store emails list.  Many of my customers tell me you have the best quilt shop in the city.Keep up the good work.

Lorna K.

I was recently in your store trying to find a special fabric and although I didn't see the exact fabric that I wanted I appreciate all the time, good humour and patience that was awarded me. Keep up the good work.
Your emails are inspiring and keep us quilting. 
Ellie S.

This is awesome news.  You and your staff continue to amaze my friends and me .... We recommend you to ALL our new quilting acquaintances.
Pat M.

Thank you for the info. It is such a treat to get such great books at a great price. 

Ellie G. 

Hi Linda:

I know you don’t expect or probably want replies to your e-mail notices, but I just wanted to say thanks for the explanation. 

I have always encouraged everyone I know who is thinking of purchasing a book to visit your establishment and will, of course, continue to do so.  You are definitely the best priced shop in town and the nicest bunch of people.  Keep up the GREAT work.

Dear Joanne and Linda,

I attended the “Quilt Along with Joanne” today – I truly enjoyed my time spent and truly appreciate this

Type of “class”.  Thank you so much for the e/mails – you people do a great job. 


Adele I.

Thank you soooo much.  Is there a message board or something like ebay has where you can leave feedback about your transaction.  You have gotten back to me quicker and have been more helpful than any other source I have ever dealt with - on line or in person and I really think you deserve all the good feedback you can have.

Thanks sooo much,
Sandy E.  :)


 ... While I am writing this e-mail I wanted to let you know how nice your bombs are. I received the "Affair of the hearts" BOM from you and was very satisfied with the quality of he fabrics and how you set each month up.  Thank you

Lynda C.


Dear ACQ:
I just wanted to drop you a short note to let you know that I received the first package in the McKenna Ryan, “When Friends Gather” Block of the Month program.  I am especially pleased that the fabrics are all labeled – many thanks for the extra effort. 
I intend to work on it this weekend and look forward to receiving the rest in the program.

Have a great day,
Ramona S.

I received my material today. It came very fast and the selection was wonderful.

Thank you


Dear Linda and staff at Along Came Quilting   

I wish to thank you for the lovely table surprise you provided for the Heritage Park Quilt show dinner last Saturday. 

I must inform you that my family and I are moving.  I look forward to your newsletters and the wonderful pictures that you attach to your emails but it is hard to drop in when I am "just passing by" .

I wish you years of great success and I know that you are the outstanding quilt store in Calgary and you make me feel special when I go into your beautiful shop. I am still working on quilts (various stages) with great fabric finds from your store.

I will still visit you on my return trips and fill the stash that I have started.


Sincerely, Diane D.

Thank you so much for sending the fabric.  I just love your BOMs.  ...Thanks again!
