About Us

Trapunto – "to quilt" in Italian (we're not Italian) is a family business located in Edmonton, Alberta which started in 2016 as a way to share our love of quality quilting fabric, hand embroidery, and notions with others.

We are passionate about the brands we carry, looking to bring fresh and unique fabric to Alberta's capital. Our brick and mortar opened in March 2019, and we are so thrilled to be a part of Edmonton's sewing community.

Dorothy is the owner of Trapunto. Her passion for quilting started during summer meetings of the Conjuring Creek Women’s Institute. She already loved fabrics and sewing; therefore, creating quilts became a passion. While working full-time managing super duper, complicated engineering projects cut into time for making quilts; it did allow time to become a knowledgeable quilter. Dorothy currently serves on the Edmonton and District Quilt Guild as Treasurer.

Jamie is our wearer of many hats. Jamie's the one behind this very website and our social media content among other things. While not quite a quilter, she enjoys hand embroidery, video games, and is a member of the Edmonton Needlecraft Guild and joined the executive to oversee Exhibits & the Newsletter.

Karen is our resident longarm quilter. Having been a quilter for ages, she bought her own longarm machine in 2002 going in hard after using her domestic to quilt. Entirely self-taught she's been longarming for a solid decade. We're so happy that the time was right for her to get back into longarming and join our team.

Sandra is our warm and kind friend that brings enthusiasm and joy to what some might consider menial tasks. She is a true fabric enthusiast, keeps our shelves neat, our fat quarters from being naked, and stitches up samples. She is also the Edmonton District Quilt Guild's Librarian.
