We will not accept quilts with odors.  This is a smoke free facility to ensure our customer's quilts are kept in a clean environment.

American Quilt Works™ Studio is located next to the Jennings Park Nature Trail

in Marysville, Washington which is about 35 miles north of Seattle.


In 1993, my property was designated as an "Urban Wildlife Sanctuary" by the Washington State Fish and Wildlife Department.  This is a view of the Allen Creek Wetland which I work hard to preserve by using only organic products in my garden.  In addition to natural habitat, I have numerous birdfeeders and birdbaths located throughout my property to support small wildlife which include many birds, hawks, a resident owl, bats, bees, butterflies and other critters.   

Our address is:  American Quilt Works™ 5415 67th Street NE, Marysville, Washington 98270.  Phone 360-658-1086 email address:  ckessel@msn.com


We maintain a clean, healthy, and safe studio environment – No Dust, Smoke, Odors, Bugs, Pet Hair or Smell.  Customer's quilts are kept in their own box clean and fresh which also protects them from loss.  In addition, our studio has a Security System to protect your quilts.  What does all this mean to you?  Your quilts will be returned to you clean and odor free.  We appreciate all the hours of work you put into making your creation so we want to ensure your quilt is protected while it is entrusted in our care.
