Cécile Trentini’s career began as a painter and sculptor. She considers curiosity as the main driving force in her work. Her materials are often unconventional - such as cotton makeup pads and chocolate wrappers - joined with a unique aesthetic style.
Since it opened in February 1997, The City Quilter has served New York’s quilters and fabric artists, and visitors from all over the world. The 4,000-square-foot shop offers the full line of BERNINA sewing machines and features more than 4,000 bolts of cotton fabric.
