Daniela Stout


Daniela owns and operates a strip club in California. Truth be told, she owns and runs a quilt shop that happens to have a strip club…

Daniela opened Cozy Quilt Shop in Rancho San Diego in 2003. Soon after, she offered her customers a strip program that promotes piecework with 2 ½” strips. To support the program, she started to design and write patterns to use those skinny morsels of fabric. Not long after the successful launch of that pattern venture came her second business, Cozy Quilt Designs®, a publishing company focused on quality patterns, books and tools for quilters of all levels.

Working with fabric is one of Daniela’s very favorite things. To imagine a quilt, design it, write it up, and then see it come alive with real fabric… well, that’s the very best thing of all. She considers her job the best job in the world.

If you are in San Diego, you are invited to drop by the shop. Check out the website at cozyquilt.com. Try to come on the second Saturday of the month at 8:30am; you might just find a strip club meeting in progress!
