While shopping with her mother in 1977, Charlotte Angotti wandered into a quilt shop that changed her life. Educated in fine arts, speech, and drama, she brings a variety of talents to her classes in a most humorous way as her love affair with fabric meets simple ideas and patterns. Charlotte has been teaching quiltmaking since 1978, and she has enjoyed a national/international teaching career since 1991. It has been said many times that if you hear laughter coming from a room, there is a good chance Charlotte is in there. Charlotte is known for her humor, her way with color and fabric, her precut kits, and a book, Surprise Yourself! She believes her hobby is quiltmaking and her job is teaching others to enjoy it as much as she does. Visit her website at quiltmakersstudio.com.
