About UsAt Kismet Quilts, we love what we do and it shows. From our carefully curated selection of fabrics to the smiles on our customers’ faces. We aim to share our love of quilting with the world around us, and it all starts from our shop here in Port Alberni, at the heart of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Kismet Quilts is more than just a quilt shop, it’s a community. A place where our friends gather to share their newest projects, seek advice on their next ones, and sometimes just catch-up with one another. We are proud to foster a creative environment where quilters feel at home and projects come to life.
We carry fabric collections from Moda, Robert Kaufman, and Timeless Treasures to name a few. We’ve also lined the walls with cutters, adhesives, patterns, rulers, threads, and more to make sure you have everything you need to keep creating.
Once you’ve finished your work of art, you can bring it back or send it into Kismet to have it professionally quilted on our fully computerized long arm Statler Stitcher. You’ll have access to our library of thousands of patterns to give your quilt the perfect finishing touch. You can rest easy leaving your quilt with us; our long arming staff are kindred quilters who understand the love and dedication you put into creating your quilt, and they make sure to take the same care and attention in quilting it.
When you’re happy with your finished project, and you’ve passed your smile on by giving your quilt to a friend or loved one, it’s time to start all over again. Join us for a class to learn a new technique, try a new pattern, or just as a great opportunity to get together and sew with people who love quilting just as much as you do!
We really do love what we do, and we are thankful every day for the great community of quilters, who are both our customers and our friends, that enable us to continue. Thank you for supporting Kismet Quilts!
