About Me

My name is Debra McCracken and I am the Chief Creative Officer of Flamingo Quiltworx! Located at the Flamingo Motel in Castlegar, I have a great selection of quilting fabrics and supplies. I also offer a Long Arm Quilting service featuring Exclusively Freehand Quilting. I can quilt almost anything onto your quilt, from a simple all-over type of pattern to an elaborate custom treatment. My Award Winning Quilting can enhance your beautiful quilts. Let me make you a quilt of your own or finish up a quilt that you’ve put your heart into. I have been making quilts for 25 years now and I have so many more to make!  The possibilities are endless and original ideas are popping up everywhere.  If you are a traditional hand quilter, I offer a basting service.  The Quiltworx also has a nice array of Wide Quilt Backs and a variety of Quilt Battings including a Bamboo Cotton Blend that is wonderful! Gorgeous new fabrics are arriving all of the time and I also have a selection of Quilt Kits, Fat Quarters and Bundles excellent for a quick project or a gift for your favorite quilter! We are Open Tues-Sat 11-5 or by appointment 250-365-7978.
