About Us

At Algonquin Sewing Center, we are passionate about providing quality products and excellent service to our customers. We believe that quilting and knitting are important traditions that link us to our heritage, as well as provide us with unique opportunities for creativity. Locally owned, and with a friendly atmosphere, Algonquin Sewing Center’s staff are experienced and ready to help!

Whether you are a beginner or a veteran sewer, classes are available for every skill level. Beginner sewing classes, garment sewing classes and specialty sewing classes are all available from Algonquin Sewing Center! Quality quilting products are also available! We offer a variety of colours and collections from Cador Textiles and Northcott. And the best part? All of our fabric is all 100% quilting cotton! Our quilting notions include fabric markers, needles, pins, rulers, thread, and more! For knitting, we offer a selection of Patons and Universal yarns. We also have a large selection of sock yarns including Tuffy, Kroy, and Opal yarns. We also have a great selection of knitting notions, patterns and books.

Located in the beautiful Upper Ottawa Valley on the main road linking Pembroke and the Town of Petawawa at 2096 Petawawa Blvd., we are easily accessible. We own our own building with free parking right at the door and a flat entry that is wheelchair accessible. The store is all on the same level so that there are no stairs inside or out.


The Upper Ottawa Valley has a rich mixture of Canadians from all over the country. Our customers are knitters, quilters and sewers from all backgrounds and many parts of the country.


The heart of our store is our classroom and it is here that we get the opportunity to introduce our customers to new hobbies. It is here that we support the products they buy from us - for example all of our Husqvarna Sewing Machines and Sergers customers are offered a free class to show them how to use the great features of their new machines.

When you are in the neighbourhood, stop in for a visit and view the many samples of sewing, quilting and knitting that we have on display. We like to think that "we have it all for you"...but if there's something you need that we don't have, we'll do our best to get it!
