Cathy Izzo, owner of City Quilter, NYC

Researching quilting resources in New York, I learned about City Quilter. Opened by Cathy Izzo and her husband Dale in 1997, the shop is a quilting center with 3000 bolts of quality cottons, a full selection of supplies, Bernina machines, and 50 classes every quarter.

I made an appointment for Monday to show owner Cathy Izzo the yukata cottons I import. As a fellow quilter and Japanophile, she was very interested. We struck an agreement and I will be sending her 50 yards to test in the NYC market.
