Charlotte Angotti: November 12 - 15, 2017


Charlotte Angotti is a quilt designer, author, and national speaker and teacher based in Layfayette, Louisiana.  Learn more about Charlotte on her website:

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.

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 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 quilt making and her job is teaching others to enjoy it as much as she does.
