Hello Linda and Along Came Quilting.
I am sorry that this is so long getting to you. I am so very pleased with the online service, the speed of delivery, and quality of products in my order from November 2019.
Please know that I will check your online store first for products I am looking for.
I look forward to stopping by the store on my next trip back to my hometown of Calgary.
Thanks again and keep up the great work.
Brenda M., Oakville, ON, March 6, 2020
I want to compliment the two women who helped me select fabric yesterday. Each one was pleasant, had a thorough knowledge of the products in your store, accommodating, and very patient.
I am the woman who spent hours (literally) picking out blue and then green fabrics.
Donna M., March 6, 2020
You have been more than helpful! Thank you!
Shelley K., March 3, 2020
Great friendly and helpful staff.

I came in for the first time today and was (am) totally green when it comes to all things sewing. I was recently gifted a used sewing machine by my partner's grandmother and came in with a sewing project in mind. The staff was very helpful, especially Jill, who guided me through everything I would need, step by step. I felt so welcomed and she was good at recommending me things I might need that never thought of, while still expressing that she didn't want to extend far beyond the basics so I get a good grasp. It seems like the people here want to share their love of sewing, and I definitely recommend this place for beginners!
Megan Bouchard - Google, early March, 2020
I received the fabric I ordered today. I am so pleased with the customer service. They are so quick -well as quick as Canada Post is. I am very happy and will continue to order from them.
Elaine C. - Facebook, Emeryville, ON, March 2, 2020
WOW! When I spoke with the lady at your shop, I believe her name is Kim, she indicated the wait would be between 3 and 12 weeks?
That insert must have been sent from New Zealand via "super sonic aircraft"....🤗
As owners of a Canadian small business for 20 years (recently sold and retired), I support Canadian small business whenever I can.
I'm looking forward to receipt of the insert.
Thank you for your helpful staff members and prompt attention to my order.
Bye for Now,
Linda F., February 29, 2020
Wow that was fast. Thank you so much. I’m loving my table.
Marie Anne D., February 28, 2020
Wanted to let you know my pattern order arrived yesterday. Thank you.
Now it’s my turn to get to work!
Fern, February 25, 2020
I searched my local shops and the internet for a copy of Susan Smith’s beautiful quilting book, “Somewhat In The Middle” and Along Came Quilting sure didn’t disappoint. Not only did they have Susan’s book for sale at a reasonable price, they shipped to me in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island in record time and for the Canada Post rate. The book arrived wrapped in a protective wrapper which I also appreciated as this book is a real treasure. I also received very welcome personal email communication advising me of the successful processing of my order. I will definitely continue to shop with Along Came Quilting and hope to stop by the shop during our next visit to Calgary. Thanks again!.
Jackie M. - Facebook, Nanaimo, BC, February 23, 2020
I received my charm pack today. I really like your fabric choices in making up this pack.
Thanks for the great service.
Dawn W., Ayton, ON, February 18, 2020
Thank you once again. I searched everywhere for this particular quilting book and you were the only Canadian company that had it and had made it available at a reasonable price.
I am going to enjoy it very much and will definitely be doing business with you again in the future. I will go to your FB page and leave my comments.
We get out to Calgary every few years to visit family so we will stop by in person and check out your shop.
Jacqueline M., Nanaimo, BC, February 18, 2020
hello quilters... I live in the Yukon. the folks at Along Came Quilting mailed me some fabric for the exact cost Canada Post charged them!! That is unbelievable customer service. Wow! Prompt shipping, great contact through entire process and kind to northerners. I will definitely shop here again. Thank you.
Elizabeth J.R. - Facebook, Whitehorse, YK, February 17, 2020

Received today....thanks so much!!
P.A., Stratford, ON, February 3, 2020
I was in yesterday, February 2, and I was very happy with my experience. I was looking for background fabric for a very large pieced heart…. Your associates Jill and Shandra (I believe that’s her name) we’re very helpful. They allowed me to spread out my quilt and we auditioned many possibilities for the two wide background stripes that I needed.
We discussed the layout of the stripes and they gave me good advice to cut the stripes length wise to avoid seams in the stripe. This was not what the pattern advised. Anyway I bought 4.5 metres of full price fabric which I’m not sure I’ve done before at 20.99 a metre. I was happy to do given the great customer service.
Lorraine R., February 3, 2020
Received my ruler today and am going to be using it tonight!!!! Thank you very much.

L.K., Vanscoy, SK, November 19, 2019
I am SO grateful for all the tweaking you were able to do to get that fabric out to me❤ I had such a lovely time putting it all together for a beautiful King sized quilt for my family, with matching pillows. But it only took me 4 days to finish and now I'm itching to start another one lol. I saw something online that caught my eye, but it is from another store, and I refuse to buy elsewhere….
Thank you once again for everything you have done for me. It has been so much fun, and very appreciated 😊
M.S., Busby, AB November 14, 2019
Thank you! You were very kind on the phone.
D.M., Orleans, ON, October 28, 2019
I just had to drop you a line to say what a pleasure it was to shop in your store (twice!), while visiting Calgary from London, Ontario.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming and the selection was second to none.
Keep up the excellent work and happy quilting!
Lisa St.M., October 17, 2019

Dear Linda from Along Came Quilting,
I had to send you a message to thank you so very much for my recent purchase of you map of Canada fabric panel😁
This was my very first online purchase!!!
I was so excited!! I was driving my family crazy asking, When do you think it will get here!!? Do you think it will look like the picture!!?? How big do you think it will end up being!? What should I make with it!?
I didn't have to wait long did I!? That was so fast!! It has far surpassed any expectations I had for it. It's so beautiful!!!
Lord help me, I can't stop staring at it lol. It currently sits in a place of honor in me front window. No one is allowed to sit on the bench for the moment lol.
I am so excited to sort through your other fabric I will be ordering to turn this into a lovely quilt for my family. I shall let them fight each other to sort who wins it😁 … It's so much more convenient for me to order your lovely fabric and have it delivered, than making the long drive into town.
You made it such a lovely experience, right down to your little handwritten note on my receipt, and butterfly sticker🦋 I've not been that excited to get a sticker since I was in 1st grade!!😊 Thank you for making it feel so personal!
You probably think I've gone round the bend lol, but as I said, this is me first online purchase, and I was very excited. I am a farm girl and these little things matter to me. Take care, and talk again soon!
M.S., Busby, AB, October 3, 2019
Thank you so much for sending me the fabric. It’s beautyful.
Your service was more than good, en you have even added a copy of the Parliament Squares pattern whith the calculation of the inches. Thank you so much for that too.
Willy van C., Netherlands, October 1, 2019
I received my book today, and have already cut out my first block. Thanks for the great service.
Marge G., Nanaimo, BC, September 27, 2019
They are amazing! This not the first time I have ordered online and the service is exceptional. This time they had ran out of one of the materials I had order and they took their time to help me pick another to match my project over the phone and computer. I highly recommend them for both their product and customer service.
Yvonne E.F. - Facebook, Herbert, SK, September 9, 2019
The insert plus quick change set arrived in the mail today. It is a perfect fit!
I appreciate the superior service your shop provided.
Helen K., September 5, 2019
Thank you so much for getting my order on the way. I have been looking for somewhere to order Robison Anton thread for ages. The other sites either did not have any numbers on their thread or you could only order made up sets. I have only been using Robison Anton thread since I started embroidering 25 years ago.
So thank you so much for being there when I needed you. I will certainly be looking to order again.
Yours in sewing
D.F., Ramara, ON, September 5, 2019
Thank you so much for your confirmation and order, I am appreciative.
I highly value small businesses - thank you for being there for all of us and everyone's hard work and dedication :)

Gail M., New Maryland, NB, August 21, 2019
Hi Linda B. I must take time today to thank you for your exceptional service that you have given me and my online shopping over the past few years. I live in a small community and very much appreciate being able to purchase my sewing needs from your sewing outlet. I am not on Facebook or Social media, so have to praise your outlet and work ethics with this email. I also want to thank you for the little extras that I receive with some orders, very uncommon in today's busy world. Also, thank you so much for your help with special orders.......sincerely

Kim W., Chesterville, ON, July 23, 2019
Over a year ago, you'll helped me find all the fabric I needed to make this quilt from Northcott. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.
Well, I finally finished the quilt and gifted it last week. I thought I would send you a picture, just in case you remember. All your efforts paid off.
My sister-in-law was so thrilled. Thanks again and I hope all is well.
Elaine K., Franklin, GA, July 21, 2019

B.L, Canmore, AB; July 21, 2019
Linda I love you company & have recommended it to others. I stumbled across it when looking for my Oh Canada series, that believe it or not, I first saw State side.
Your inventory is amazing and your prices are well within industry standards.
Your service is great, just wish I lived closer to be able to come into the store.
Thank you again. I look forward to seeing what is new and exciting coming in.
Patti G., Sooke BC, July 19, 2019
I love both of my portable tables. One for my machine and also for an extension. Very sturdy. I recommend purchasing from you. I have had mine for a good 8 years and many of my friends both some too. Very good product.
Christiane C., July 13, 2019
Love the staff and they have great stock.
Michelle M. - Facebook, Calgary, AB, July 9, 2019
Beautiful material. Lots of different lines. The pattern selection is wonderful. Notions galore!
Cathy M. - Facebook, July 9, 2019
I cannot say enough good things about this store. We went in there mostly as a starter fact-finding mission to find out what was needed for my mother-in-law to make us a quilt. However, the staff was so helpful and patient, 2 hours later we left feeling very confident that we had everything needed to make the quilt. We knew nothing about quilting going in, and we were treated patiently, properly, never rushed, and never spoken down to. The store is immaculate, well-lit, and very well laid out. Kudos to all of the staff at Along Came Quilting!
Tony Norman - Google, 2019
fabulous stock, awesome staff, visit every time I travel to Calgary
Claire L. - Facebook, June 25, 2019

Thanks for letting the Ujamaa Grandmas have their see day at your store’s class room. I have never been to your store before and found the space so great to do our projects in. And your staff were so friendly and welcoming. Thanks for your generosity.
Georgie S., Calgary, AB, May 23, 2019
Thanks. Anxiously awaiting my table. My three sewing buddies all have them and rave about them…. Fantastic for Retreats.
Lynn B., Arnprior, ON, May 21, 2019
First visit. Drove from other end of the city because they were the only one with the strawberry fabric I needed. Little did I know until I got there, that they also have the best customer service in a fabric and sewing store anywhere in the city that I've had (and I've been to many over the years, they've already been great but this one beats them all!). She helped me with my homemade pattern too and helped draw it in opposite for other side so I wouldn't cut it backwards. I will just skip the other places from now on and continue to make the trip across the city to this place. OMG did I mention that you don't even have to buy a membership here like some other places?? Amazing! :D Thanks again!.
Katinka Kotz - Google, 2019
There prompt efficient service is a credit to the store owner and staff that work there. Many thanks.

Debbie I., Ottawa, ON, April 23, 2019
Hi Linda – and everyone at ACQ
I just received an order of batiks from you which are to add to the stash I’m using for a project. Darned if in that bundle is one which is the PERFECT fit for the border of another project on my design wall – which brought many days of agonizing to an end for me – and today I’ve ordered more of that fabric from you so I can finish that project! I just thought you’d like this little anecdote.
Jean S., Meadow Lake, SK, April 8, 2019
Hi Linda - my package came today - all good and all that I was looking for.
Pleasure doing business with you - I will be visiting in Calgary in July (5th - 8th) so will definitely come in and browse around.
Suzie A., One Fifty Mile House, BC, April 3, 2019
I was gifted a really fancy schmanzy lamp (a used bluemax full spectrum) to help with seasonal affective disorder, which unfortunately lacked a specialty light bulb. The shipping from the states was jaw-dropping, so I looked for Canadian stores that held it. I guess this lamp is often used as a crafter's lamp, so luckily Along Came Quilting had one in stock. I'm in Halifax, they're in Calgary, but they responded immediately (10 PM Halifax time) and arranged to send it to me asap. Like, really, asap. It landed on my step so fast. They were SUPER kind, friendly and professional. I wish I was crafty just to give them more business!
Mary-Alma Bateman - Google, 2019
I made an online purchase of some divine fabric and was pleasantly surprised by the communication with the staff about my order, the speed of service I received and the attention to detail evident when I received the order. They were a treat to deal with, and I'll be shopping there regularly.

Darlene Lynn - Google, 2019
I have paid this now. Thank you for keeping your shipping costs so reasonable. I can’t buy anything from the US now because the shipping is just too expensive. Looking forward to receiving these beautiful batiks.
Andrea G., Vancouver, BC, March 28, 2019
When I need to find great quilting fabric at a great price, I come here. Even without a discount they are cheaper then Fabricland. I get great tips, advice and ideas from the lovely ladies.. and there are classes if needed

Visited the store after being an online customer. Excellent selection! Storefront is unassuming, but inside is amazing - fabric, supplies, patterns, books & magazines, panels, and more.
Sheila G. - Facebook, March 9, 2019
Thank you for your response to my email and the direction to the shipping info page. I wish all websites had such detailed shipping info with examples of shipping costs to various US locations.
I have placed an order and am awaiting an invoice through PayPal.
Michael G., White GA, March 8, 2019
I thank you sincerely for the quality of service from your store of its products.

I look forward to my order and further purchasing from you.
I will notify you of its arrival, and possibility of anoher purchase.

Cindy Nixdorff - Google, February 16, 2019
I just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am of your store. Yesterday my sister came in from Regina. Unfortunately it was 5:30 and your store closes at 5:00. The person that was closing the store (Teri) noticed the Saskatchewan license plate and asked Sharon who was in the store for a retreat if my sister could come in and purchase a piece of grunge fabric.
This was so appreciated and I just wanted to let you know that your staff was great.
Denise S., February 16, 2019
Thank You. You guys are great.
Deanna J., Willow River, BC, February 12, 2019

Linda W. - Facebook, February 11, 2019
Thank You so very much for your speedy response to my order. To find the fabric on your site was a Godsend. It arrived today and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your service.
Chris M., Holland, OH, February 6, 2019
Thank you! Parcel received in my rural box today.
Your service is outstanding and I LOVE my SewEzi table. I will continue to promote it as the best accessory for sewing machines, whether it's in my sewing room or for travel. I'm short and it makes all the difference in the world to have my machine lower - so much easier on the shoulders and back - saves $$$ on chiro and massage from too much sewing - pays for itself in no time.
I've stitching friends in NZ and they're amazed to hear we use THEIR tables here - and proud of the fact it's a KIWI item. There's not much that NZ exports to the rest of the world, except great wool items, lamp chops and milk powder to Japan.
It's such a treat to have free replacement - excellent service and appreciated. Keep up the great work.
Darlene H., January 29, 2019
I love my table so much. I would like to order a large size for my Bernina 750. Do you have them in stock?
Tracy L., January 29, 2019
Thank you...hopefully I can visit your store when I visit my daughter. I was thrilled to see you had this material as it appears to be sold out in Ontario.

I am so very impressed with your fast reliable service & been telling everyone what a wonderful website I found.
I wish your store is in my neighbourhood; I would love to wander through the store. Someday if I’m in Calgary I’ll be looking you up. Meanwhile I definitely will be ordering from you again.

Tricia M., Victoria, BC, December 6, 2018
Just to let you ladies know, my daughter(lives in Calgary) brought me to your store this last January, while I was visiting from Kamloops, B.C. Everyone was so helpful and friendly as my daughter picked fabric choices/pattern for me to make her a quilt. She picked Tokyo Terrace and your store told me to send a photo when done! Her birthday was yesterday and the quilt was sent from Kamloops by Courier. She WAS thrilled!! So, a great big 'thank-you' from us and I'll definitely be back!
Kathy L., Kamloops, BC, December 6, 2018

Hi. Thank you Linda. That was fast….Super fast service.
Taylor A., Keremeos, BC, September 4, 2018
Thanks for being such an awesome company!! Have a great day,
Diana U., Courtenay, BC, September 4, 2018
…Thanks for ordering the lacy cabins patterns for me. I put your shop name online with some quilters from some of my groups and gave you rave reviews. The quilters were asking for good shops to order from online. I told them you were awesome. So you might be getting orders from other provinces because some of my clubs are across Canada.
Thanks again. I love shopping with you.
S.H., Cold Lake, AB, August 26, 2018
About 6 weeks ago my sister and I, along with our husbands, visited Along Came Quilting while we were staying in Calgary on a visit from the UK. You may remember that you called a taxi for us as my husband was feeling a little tired and it was very hot. It transpired that he was developing Pneumonia and we had to fly home shortly afterwards. We were very thankful for that taxi for, as it turned out, there had been an accident on the Stampede rail system so no trains were running to and from the Stampede. Consequently taxis were in very short supply and we wouldn’t have been able to get one if you hadn’t called one for us! Anyway, I bought fabric in the shop to make a tote bag similar to one I had seen on the Rocky Mountaineer and I thought you might like to see the outcome, front and back….
Evelyn L-S., Oxford, England, August 25, 2018
I received my order yesterday and are very happy!!!
Thank you so much!
C.T., Lac La Biche, AB, August 25, 2018
My order arrived exactly when Canada Post said it would. I appreciate the "signature required", as it appears that many parcels are being stolen from front steps. I would also like to thank you for your wonderful service re my order over the phone. I had made several other calls to other shops in my pursuit of the items I required for my applique workshop, and sadly to say I was met with disinterest from all but your shop. Thank you for your time, interest and consideration in dealing with me. You rock!
Linda O., August 20, 2018
Good Morning Linda
I have been at the cottage (no roads, electricity.....) I arrived home to find the envelope with fabric. Everything is great. The prompt replies and mailing have made your service a go to for another time. Thank you
Orleen A., Clarksburg, ON, August 19, 2018
I placed my order on Saturday and received it Tuesday! Phenomenal service and just the most beautiful fabrics. Along Came Quilting have a wonderful selection of fabrics and their prices are so competitive! Thank you so very much!.
Felicity L. - Facebook, August 16, 2018
Thank you so much for the fantastic service - love the fabric you sent!
F.L., Turner Valley, AB, August 16, 2018
Quilt rack arrived this afternoon. Our mailman said in all of his years of delivering packages this is the most substantial package he has ever seen. It was packed just as you described and all the parts were wrapped well and then foamed in place.
The quilt rack is beautifully made, with great attention to detail. Assembly was easy and straightforward. The rack looks beautiful in our living room. Thank you for offering such a lovely product and great service.
George & Susan, Glenville, NY, August 10, 2018
…Your service and support has meant a lot and I tend to be a very loyal customer when I am met with such wonderful service.
Denise G., August 10, 2018
Thank you very much for the info. I will be looking out for it. I LOVE this material and can hardly wait to get working on it. It should make for a great quilt, cushions, and pillow covers along with whatever else I can think of.
Marie. P., Edmonton, AB, August 8, 2018
I purchased an ez sew table last April and did not get a chance to praise you for the excellent service I got. Thank you! But more importantly where can I go online for others to see to help promote your company?
Alyce C., August 6, 2018
Thank you, Linda. You make online shopping at ACQ such a pleasure.
Jan. R., Calgary, AB, July 26, 2018
The best quilting store in Calgary. The staff are very helpful, and have a lovely selection of fabrics. Instructional staff are super for those at every level of their quilting careers.
Debbie Worsley - Google, July 22, 2018
Thank you so much for the speedy service. I will certainly let my fellow quilting friends know.
Pat D., Nepean, ON, July 20, 2018
I just wanted to thank you for your input last night into fabric choices. Once I got it all home and used the bridge fabric you chose, I was able to complete the run with stash fabrics. Although it ended up going darker than the lighter we were aiming for, it does balance out the other end of the run. I guess that is what quilting is really all about, being flexible and evolving with the resources that are available. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your help last night.
Linda W., Calgary, AB, July 20, 2018
I ordered fabric on Thursday and it arrived today. I have found that the colours of fabric on line are exactly the same when seen in person. I also enjoy visiting the store when I'm in Calgary.
Maxine A. - Facebook, July 10, 2018
Greetings from USA!
I want to thank you so much for sending our order of Oh Canada! Fabrics. Everything arrived safely and was beautifully packaged. The enclosed free pattern was a fun surprise, too!
We wish you a wonderful rest of the summer!
Mary B., Midlothian, VA, USA, July 9, 2018
Hi Linda, I had a lovely surprise the table arrived this morning(one day early). I have it assembled and am very pleased with it. Thank you for your prompt service.
Pauline T., July 5, 2018

Amazingly fast customer service. I ordered some fabric panel from this shop. They were shipped the same day and I received them the next day. Will definitely shop here again. Thanks very much.
Brenda B. - Facebook, June 8, 2018
Thanks very much that is amazing service in that you shipped the same day I ordered. I look forward to doing more business with you.
B.B., Sylvan Lake, AB; June 6, 2018
I came to realize that your price is the best by far in the meantime. I have to say, you have the best staff. I just spent a good hour in the store looking through your scrap box and got a great supply to make a collage quilt of the turtle by Laura Heine. I am so pleased with the pieces and the price. Your staff also steered me in the right direction as to how much Steam a Seam 2 we actually needed and that was amazing. ... We are quilting newbies of only one year so learn a lot every time we enter your store.
Thanks so much for your time.
Brenda O., Local Area, AB; June 4, 2018
Can always fine something for a project, love this quilt shop!
Terry Anderson - Google, May 22, 2018
Thank you so much, Linda! I appreciate your excellent service. All the best!

Order received, thanks for prompt and courteous attention! Small, independent stores every time. I used to live in Calgary and always loved your first store.
C.A., Stony Plain, AB; May 17,2018
Thank you so much ! My order arrived today and it's exactly the color and quality I needed.
I'm so happy.
Diane L., St-Hubert, QC; May 9, 2018
I really have to commend you on your customer service. It is definitely second to none.
I ordered some fabric from you on Monday morning. When I got home last night (I live in Cochrane, AB.), it was already in my mail box. You really can’t beat that kind of service.
I am so impressed with your service and your staff. They are all very knowledgeable and very friendly.
Dealing with you is always such a positive experience.
Thank you and I will definitely be shopping more online (at your shop) and recommending you to my friends.
R.J., Cochrane, AB; May 9, 2018
It is my pleasure to support your business. On one of my trips to Calgary (to visit my sister), I'll drop in at your store.
... I will use this opportunity to say how impressed I have been from the outset with your support. You took the time to call me last year when there was a question about a couple of my orders ... and you were able to solve the problems. I have mentioned your store (and great service) to many of my quilting friends.
D.B., Indian Head, Saskatchewan; May 4, 2018
J'ai fait mes débuts dans la courtepointe seulement il y a 3 ans. Je demeure au Québec et nous n'avons pas beaucoup de magasins de tissus dans ma région. En faisant des recherches sur Google j'ai découvert cette belle boutique en ligne. Beaucoup de choix et le service est excellent. J'y fais des achats depuis au moins 3 ans et j'en ferai dans le futur c'est certain.
Suzanne B. - Facebook, April 25, 2018
I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your prompt service. I have now ordered a second time with you and couldn’t be happier. My first order arrived so quick it made my head spin. Really appreciate it. Your service is excellent and I will definitely be using you more often. I will also pass it on to my friends.
I have visited your wonderful shop quite a few times and love it. But sometimes when I only need a couple of things it is easier to just order it. Thank you for offering a great service. .
Rose J., Cochrane, AB; April 24, 2018
Thanks for letting me know where things stand (regarding when order would be shipped). It is always a pleasure dealing with you!
S.H., Ellershouse, NS; April 16, 2018
The store is beautifully laid out with a large selection of modern fabric. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The owner graciously allows a charity quilting group I belong to use the store's classroom for our monthly meetings. This store is truly a 'community' store.
Happy Customer - Google, April 16, 2018
Greetings, Just dropping a note to say that I enjoyed a most pleasing visit to your Quilt Shop. What a beautifully displayed and lovely place to spend some time! I was also helped by a very accommodating lady named Terri. Thank you Terri , and Along Came Quilting for a very pleasant mid morning shopping.
Sincerely , MaryAnne M., April 11, 2018
I'd like to cancel the subscription now after this last charge.
Thank you very much for the great service, and great product. My aunt has been thrilled. She's been asking me to cancel now because she doesn't want me to spend too much on her but otherwise we're both ecstatic.
Nolan S., Kingsville, ON ; April 10, 2018

F.L., Turner Valley, AB; March 20, 2018

R.W., Gimli, MB; January 18, 2018
Thank you so much Linda Your service is excellent and I make mention of along came quilting regularly at our quilting get together. Shopping in many areas is getting very limited. The two closest quilting stores are in Medicine Hat and Moose Jaw and it is costly to jump in your vehicle to buy what ever small item you are needing. I will definitely look you up on facebook and rate your service. I do not do alot in that regard with google.
J.W., Gull Lake, SK; January 10, 2018
Good Morning Linda, Thank you for your letting me know about the orders and for your kindness of shipping them together. That is perfect. I love the Gypsy Sit Upon. It enables me to sit comfortably and I do not have leg pain when I get up from the chair. I decided a second one was needed so that I will have one in the quilting room and one at the dining table. I am so appreciative of you and your store.
Pat C., Winnipeg, MB; January 3, 2018
Excellent choice for quilting fabric
Helena H., Google Review, December 2017
Love the fabric selections
Sam O., Google Review, December 2017
Was in last week to get binding for a quilt I just finished . The ladies were so friendly. Asked if I needed help. I showed my quilt and she took me over to look at material to go with my quilt. We tried a few and decided on one . Explained how to put on the binding for I had not done binding in one stripe before. Then I want some material for another project that she helped me with too. Great shopping experience !!!

Linda Thank you so much for your prompt reply – it is a pleasure to order from your company. The person who took my phone call was great and I have nothing but praise for the whole experience. It will be wonderful not to have a sore neck and shoulders from trying to sew at the incorrect height at quilt retreats. Wishing you a Happy Christmas season

Hi Linda! My order arrived today, the material was just as pictured. It matches well with my other picks for a quilt I'm working on! Yours was the only Canadian store I could find it available. I just signed up and placed my order on Sat. and it has already travelled across Canada to me! I would for sure recommend your store to everyone! Thanks.

Jennryrose S., Facebook Review, August 30, 2017
No problem, I am thankful you have a shop since our shop in Fernie closed. … My children both live in Calgary; whenever I visit I go to your shop. You have a great selection of fabrics.
Louise P., Fernie, BC; August 26, 2017
I was happy to find your store. I have ordered specialty fabrics from Spoonflower and they are always reasonable with their shipping costs, but the difference in the dollar has made it impractical to order from the U.S. this past year. It was your reasonable shipping costs that helped me decide to order from Along Came Quilting. The other online stores in Canada wanted too much to send just a yard or 1/2 yard. I'll be back!
Marilynn C., Cambridge, ON; August 25, 2017
… I'm sure thankful you have all these Hoffman watercolors for my projects. Thanks again for your great service
T.M., Mayerthorpe, AB; August 23, 2017

A.M., Terrace, BC; August 2, 2017
Our local quilt shop is closing (the owner is retiring) and we live in a small rural town not near any large quilt shops, so it’s a treat to find one online with so much choice and good prices! I am going to pass your website along to all my quilting friends! Have a great summer!

Annette D., Shawnigan Lake, BC; July 15, 2017
Just wanted to let you know I received my order today. Everything looks great. Considering the cost of postage, my husband says it is better to order from you as opposed to having to drive the many miles I do to get good fabric. Looking forward to being a future customer, … I do a lot of sewing. Will certainly be giving your card to my fellow quilters.
Patricia F., London, ON; July 12, 2017

T.B., Bowmanville, ON; June 23, 2017
I have never quilted before.... they were so kind, Kim helped me pick out a quilt pattern from their display, to fit within my tight time constraints... Found the book that went with it, modified the pattern to be the size I needed.... Helped put a quilt colour scheme together. Calculated the amount of material I would need. After I got going with it, I had some questions on topstitching and remedies for slight block difference and on a Saturday, they were so patient and kind on the phone, wanting my quilt to be a success :). Their sewing machine needles were cheaper than fabriclands members sale price too! .
Melanie A., Facebook Review, June 12, 2017

K.A., Meleb, MB; May 8, 2017
Hi Linda, Wow, that was really quick. I picked up my fabric today and once again thank you for your great service. I bumped into a friend of mine attending the class this morning.

Pam K., Google Review, March 2017
March 22, 2017: …You have no idea how many places I tried to find fabric with stones - and I was definitely not going to order from the States. I'm very glad to support a Canadian business - will try to remember you in future. March 28, 2017: Just a note to say the fabric arrived today, and there are two reasons to thank you: I am happy with the fabric, and since I collect stamps I was very happy to see the stamps on your envelope. :) I will definitely order from you again.

Thank you Linda. I would like you to know that I do a lot of on line shopping, when it comes to quilting shopping Along Came Quilting is my FAVOURITE place to shop. I tell everyone that asks 'what is the best Canadian on line quilting shop?' that Along Came Quilting can't be beat. Thank you all for your commitment to us quilting 'back a doodles'. 😂
Monika M., Surrey, BC; February 19, 2017

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Catherine H., Winnipeg, MB; February 9, 2017
I was searching for a particular Northcott flannel to use as the inner border in my first ever quilt and had no luck at my local quilt shop (or any of the shops in Vermont). I did a Google search and found a possible match to the fabric at Along Came Quilting. I called late morning (EST) and reached the shop before it even opened. Kim was so pleasant and kind. She found the bolt, matched the item number to what I was looking for, cut the fabric and readied it for shipping tomorrow, all before the shop opened! I guarantee that I'll be ordering from you again and again. Thank you so much!! .
Margaret R., Facebook Review, February 6, 2017
I just wanted to let you know I received my fabric already!!! Wow that was fast! Thank you! I think it will do very nicely for the quilt I'm making for my son and his fiancée for their wedding. Thanks again for your help!

I received my fabrics today. This is my first time ordering fabric on-line so I did not quite what to expect.

I want to "Thank You" for your excellent service. I am very impressed with the ease of ordering from A.C.Q. on-line & the obvious care in which the fabrics were selected, packaged & shipped. Your service was prompt & the fabrics as lovely as I expected.

Marilyn E., Calgary, AB; August 10, 2013
Hi Linda All the thanks are mine - to you! The service I have received from you has been truly wonderful and could not possibly have been bettered. I hope the postal services are half as efficient as you! If you can bear it, I think I would like to order some more of this range from you, but this time to be delivered to my son's Canadian address, so keep an eye out for me! For now my thanks once again,
Margaret S., Devon, UK; July 12, 2013
Good morning! I am the mother that your store stayed open for last Wednesday. My son, Bryan, told me that you not only stayed open an hour later but that your staff happily cut fat quarters while he pulled out bolts of batik fabric. Thank you! I love all of the fabric and I’m sure I’ll be able to make a quilt out of the batiks. Two other pieces are Kaffe Fassett and are good additions to my collection of KF fabrics – another quilt in my queue! Beautiful, gorgeous fabrics! Once again, thank you!
Barb Z.; June 18, 2013

Loris B., Port McNeill, BC; March 22, 2013
Hi, Lynda - I finally got up the nerve to start my Home Tweet Home blocks last week and I wanted to thank you again for such a beautiful package - it must have taken hours for you to label each piece - it is very much appreciated. I was actually at a class at our local quilt store - they are doing the Petals pattern but said I could join them to learn the McKenna Ryan technique. Out of respect for the store offering the class, I did buy 2 patterns and some fabric but they wanted me to bring what you had done for me. They could not get over how lucky I was to have such beautiful fabrics to work with - many, many thanks! I was singing your praises!
Nancy Wright, Gatineau, QC; February 19, 2013
Received the fabric - it's gorgeous! Even better than in the pictures. Thank you so much for your wonderful service - can't wait to work on a project with them!

Charlene S., Brewer, ME; October 6, 2012
Hi I was in your shop for the first time this afternoon and just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service that I received! Since I just relocated here from North Carolina and looking for my new quilt shop I was very impressed with your shop and your wonderful employees! I plan on coming to one of your quilt along classes so that I can meet other quilters. Much to my husband’s dismay I can see me spending lots of time in your shop! Again, thank you for making me feel so welcome and I am sure that I will see you soon!
Debi M., Calgary, AB; October 4, 2012
I was in your Calgary store for the first time, yesterday. The help I received was outstanding and I thank you. When I left, the clerk (sorry, I didn't get her name), gave me a business card and mentioned that you have a e-newsletter. If so, will you please sign me up for the newsletter? Now that my creative juices are flowing I have to get going and start sewing the wonderful batik fabrics I brought home with me. Thank you, so much.
Janet K., Sherwood Park, AB; August 31, 2012

Carol R., Calgary, AB; January 26, 2012
By the way I got tons of complements over the holidays on the "Once Upon A Star" quilt I did with you a couple of years ago. I had it up over the holidays and I intend to leave it there until spring thaw. Thanks again for doing such a wonderful job of putting these kits together. I have told my little quilt group how good you are about proofing things and adding notes when necessary, at least one of them has already contacted you about the next BOM.

I know that I shouldn't waste your email time, but I just have to say that is the epitome of Customer Service ie., to have all your employees named the same so that when a customer calls, they don't have to wait for "Linda" to answer!! Something like George Foreman naming all of his sons George. Seriously, thank you, I appreciate the quick response. I will certainly give you a call when I check over my stash. I want to tell you that I am from the "old school" and though I search out things on internet, I will almost always buy locally (Calgary is still local) and support people/shops that someday I know I can visit. Thanks.

Came into the store today to check out your new location. Loved it, and of course had to make a purchase or two. The lighting is great, the true colours of fabric clearly visible, and all the fabric so clearly arranged, loved the floor, and the parking really good too. WOW! As always, your staff first class. Congratulations! I look forward to more pleasurable shopping on a regular basis. I also plan on taking some classes too, your classroom so nice and light. Well done and see you very soon.
H.F., Calgary, AB; July 4, 2011
Thanks for the note, Linda. My order arrived on Friday (very speedy of you!) Of course, I still shop with you -- yours is still my favourite quilt shop!…Take care and thanks for such great online service!
Teresa W., Kelowna, BC; May 10, 2011
My fabrics arrived safe and sound in today's mail - 18th April. All delightful quality fabrics as ordered. Many thanks,
Helen Mc., Australia; April 17, 2011
I also wanted to let you know that I really appreciate how you label the fabrics in the BOM. I have done BOM from another online quilt shop and it is a complete guessing game as to which fabric they intended for where.
Kathy L., Calgary, AB; March 27, 2011
Thanks for your help and awesome prompt replies! Terrific customer service!
Keltie M, Water Valley, AB; March 18, 2011
Thanks Linda for your quick attention to this matter. I look forward to future shopping adventures with Along Came Quilting when I return…..need a couple of weeks in the sun/warmth as every true Canadian.
Irene L., Nepean, ON; January 24, 2011
I really enjoyed looking at your website. You have some beautiful kits and patterns. I will be back. Thanks ~ Linda BTW - I have never sent any shop on the shop hop a compliment before.
Linda H., Liberty, MO; January 11, 2011
Thank you! My order came today. I love the fabric, and can't wait to get started on it.
Maureen B., Regina, SK; January 11, 2011
Just a quick note to say how impressed I am with your quick delivery service - I recieved my order today. Thank you!
Anne-Marie K., Selkirk, MB; December 6, 2010
Linda! Thank you. That is an excellent idea. I will do that. It will not leave here until Monday, so I look forward to hearing from you. You have great ideas and it sure makes me feel like you value your customers. I will send some along and have a great weekend. Tks again. THANK YOU AGAIN Linda: Just talked to Leslie..and again another positive experience. I will certainly return to your website in the future. You girls are great.
Wendy H., MB; November 8, 2010
Thank you, Linda - I appreciate your response. You have a great site and I think I'll be coming back to order Christmas presents anyway! Thanks again,
Debbi-Lynn B., Regina, SK; October 31, 2010
Thank you so much!!!! I am looking forward to the pattern and going to Along Came Quilting soon. I was there the other day and bought some great stuff. You have a wonderful store and great staff.
Darlene D., Calgary, AB; October 23, 2010
I am very excited about both of the block of the month I’m signed up for – Beach Walk and Affairs of the Heart. It’s like Christmas every month when those packages arrive in the mail! You guys do a great job with the things you offer and the organization of each block of the month – LOVE IT! Have a great day and I will definitely call if i have any issues or questions. Thanks again!
Wanda N., Okotoks, AB; October 20, 2010
Thank you for your excellent service.
Most appreciative, Best regards Pauline D., Warman, SK; January 8, 2010
Wow, that is excellent service.
Most appreciative, Linda G., Richmond, BC; December 5,2009
My package arrived actually yesterday and I love the fabric! Love it! I am thinking really hard about ordering more and every time I log onto your sight I see more and more......I will sort through it and be back in touch with an order!...I really appreciate it and it has certainly been a pleasure ordering from you, without a doubt you are added to my favorites!
Most appreciative, Annette S., Bethlehem, PA; November 25, 2009
I look forward to my parcel. And I look forward to ordering more items from you when I get caught up on some of my projects. I must say, I really do like buying from stores in Canada instead of the US. So I will be getting more quilting items from you in the future. Thanks once again,
Trudy F., Lincoln, NB, November 30, 2009
Hi. I just wanted to drop a quick email to say how much I have enjoyed working on “Once Upon a Star”. I joined your block a month and found making the blocks extremely easy with your added instructions, clear labelling of the fabric and quick answers to any questions I had. I have always picked my own fabric and though I missed doing that – this went together so much faster. I am now joining the blocks and will be quilting and embellishing over the next two weeks. Thanks again and I’m looking forward to another block a month!
Wanda N., Okotoks, November 16, 2009
Dear Linda: Thank you for choosing the fabric for my winter projects. It is perfect.
Marian C., Nanaimo, BC, October 31, 2009
Just a little note to let you know that I enjoyed the quilt retreat that I was able to attend. It is nice to keep going without interuptions. Although it seemed I had quite a few interuptions with the visitors I had at my house. But I made good progress on my Jewels of Bali. I have sewn since being at home but not as much as at the retreat. Thanks for the opportunity to attend the retreat. I hope I will have the opportunity to attend another at some other time.
Peggy W., Calgary, August 15, 2009
Hi Linda – I’m loving these emails! I’ve asked for the ironing board for my birthday or Christmas – I checked it out one day when I was in the store. And I’m loving my Blue Max light that I got a few weeks ago.
Bev McC., Calgary, AB, December 4, 2008
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.
I wanted to let you know that I got the kit two days ago. I love the Hoffman batiks that you used!
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.
Prince George, B.C.
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.
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
Thanks, and hope to shop with you in the future.
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.
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,
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!
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,
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 pin..it 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.
.... quilt top for your lovely Christmas panel kit! I love it! Your directions are so clear and fabrics labeled. Even I did it!
Please, please more kits for the shopping averse!
I'm leaving the province of Alberta and moving to PEI. I've always loved shopping at your store. Thanks for all your support and the tons of fun.
Hello: above subject kit just arrived today! I will be starting on it as soon as this e-mail is finished!! Thank you so much for the delightful little lapel pin and thank you for expediting the kit. Can you tell I'm SO EXCITED? Again, thank you
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 much...you 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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
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".
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.
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.
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.
This is awesome news. You and your staff continue to amaze my friends and me .... We recommend you to ALL our new quilting acquaintances.
Thank you for the info. It is such a treat to get such great books at a great price.
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.
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
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,
I received my material today. It came very fast and the selection was wonderful.
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!
