Our Story


KTR Sewing Centre first opened its doors before we were born in downtown Winnipeg with a previous name and location long forgotten.  A "few" years later, a few store names, locations and owners later, we took ownership of The Sewing Gallery from Herb and Shirely Wildeman on July 1st, 2004.  In 2005, we changed our name to Quilt as Desired and in 2006, we moved to our previous location at 661 Pembina Highway.  That location had better parking and classroom space than downtown; however, we soon outgrew it and knew that we needed to find a bigger home for the store.  After a number of years of searching, we recently found the perfect location and plans were put in place to make the move.  This move was also the opportune time for a store name change tht would better identify us to all sewists.

We are thrilled to now be in our new location with a bright, cheery showroom, spacious classroom and on-site service center.  We look forward to your visit and the opportunity to provide you with an exceptional and inspirational experience.
