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 1981Charlotte opened a quilt shop, Quilt Works, in Virginia Beach,VA.She sold the shop in 1999 when she moved to Michigan.
She has been teaching nationally/internationally since 1991 and now lives in the Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina, moving there to be close to her family in 2008.
Quilt Maker's Studio was started when Charlotte realized there were a few left over kits now and then. These class kits are offered for sale on this website along with her patterns and book. The kits are laser cut, come in only the colors offered, and are first come first served. If you see one you like, get it. They are wonderful to sew. (there are times when they aren't available...nothing leftover!)
It has been said many times, if you hear laughter coming from a room, there is a good chance Charlotteis in there. Charlotte is known for humor, her way with color and fabric, her pre-cut kits, and now a new 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.
