When Daniela Stout opened Cozy Quilt Shop in San Diego, California in 2003; a star was born. In four short years she has transformed the industry! Thanks to her example, quilters all over the country are joining “Strip Clubs” – while maintaining their sense of modesty!
It all started as a “Quilt Club” idea. The staff would cut fabrics into 2 1/2″ strips and design a different quilt around them each month. The customers could add backgrounds and borders of their choice to complete the quilt. Of course, everybody loved it – she spoiled them rotten! Who doesn’t love to get a kit when the initial cutting is all done for you! So, one of the hottest “strip clubs” in the country was born!
Customers could “preview” the fabrics for the following month while they were attending a presentation on the current project. An amazing thing happened – they all became friends! It gave them a reason to visit the shop each month – and they got to know the other people in their groups. A generation of “strippers” was born. And, Daniela knew she had created something totally unique!
