Lecture: Charlotte Angotti
July 20 @ 10:30 am
Why aren’t you making more quilts? I know you have the fabric!
This lecture is humorous, light, yet full of information and real quilts. No slides or Powerpoint – the lights are up and the ideas are flowing. This is a great way to get an overview of what quilting is all about. Questions are always welcome. Bring friends, cameras, and be ready to laugh!
While shopping with her mother in 1977, (really, that long ago!), Charlotte wandered into a quilt shop and everything changed from there. Educated in fine arts, speech and drama, she brings a variety of talents to the class and in a most humorous way.
She has been teaching quilt making since 1978 because someone asked Charlotte to teach her. Her first quilt was sold right after making it. She has sold many since. In 1981 Charlotte opened a quilt shop, Quilt Works, in Virginia Beach, VA. She sold the shop in 1999.
She has been teaching nationally/internationally since 1991 and now lives in the Lafayette, LA area, moving there in 2016.
Quilt Maker’s Studio was started when Charlotte realized there were a few left-over kits now and then. The ‘orphan’ kits are sometimes available on the website, but more often offered for sale in other classes as she travels. The kits are so popular it is difficult to get them online before they are sold! The kits are laser cut and go together perfectly. They make sewing a quilt simply as good as it gets.
It has been said many times, if you hear laughter coming from a room, there is a good chance Charlotte Is in there. Charlotte is known for humor, her way with color and fabric, her pre-cut kits, and her book, Surprise Yourself! Charlotte is a fun person to have on a faculty or as a teacher coming to your guild. She believes her hobby is quiltmaking and her job is teaching others to enjoy it as much as she does.
