Love this Charlotte, and all the stitching you've been doing!

Colette Copeland

I wish I could be with you; there are some fabulous classes. I know you'll have a wonderful time!


Holy Cow! I may need to take a trip to LA! You have outdone yourself!

I LOVE that banner-wish I could take the class. Have fun in LA and check out Obsolete gallery in Venice (on Main St.) if you're in the area. My husband has work there and you and Kaari would love the place.


This is wonderful!
Always an inspiration to visit you here...


Hello Charlotte,

This banner is amazing!

The banner is really pretty. Sad to say I'll be taking your class only in my dreams. Have fun!

Thanks for the valentine inspiration, just in time for a sweet little 3 inch project of my own. I can't wait to stitch, it's fun to share the love! You're quite a talented (and classy) lady, Miss Charlotte.

charlotte, just wanted to say hey ( finally)... i've been an admirer from afar for many, many years! i felt the need to comment when i saw the Mary Englebreit Christmas Companion here in your post ( it is still my favorite xmas book that i pull out each year - it is just so lovely!) MEHC did a wonderful feature on my studio & co ( drooz studio) years ago ( I worked w kathy). i attended silver bella 2009... and should have introduced myself - but i was feeling overwhelmed and shy! i won't make that mistake again! happy new year! - shell

Your banner is GORGEOUS! I know it will be a big hit. Maybe you could do an online tutorial one day.
