I am Charisma. Yes, that is my real name. I am a wife, mother to six children, Christian, and I own my own long arm quilting business. Those are all of my titles in no certain order. I have been quilting for several years…..and decided to make it more than a hobby in August of 2010. I bought my first long arm, a 26 inch Innova, by August of 2011, I bought a second machine. We now have a Third machine. A Gammill with a statler. A computerized quilting machine. I have quilted more than 7000 customer quilts and I have over 500 of my own. I have a range of work as you can see in my gallery. I am in for the adventure that comes with my life and this business. As some of you know through the process of following my blog, I dropped out of college a few winters ago to pursue my LAQ business further. I am happy for the changes….I get more time with quilting, my family, God and all of you! all very important things for me.
I can now say that as of 2018 I am a pattern Designer. I have been published in several magazines and have an online store with several designs available. I am focusing on designs that speak to me. More advanced embroidery, Christian based designs and regular quilt patterns. I love to mix textures, design styles and everything in between. So you will be seeing more of me.
I am a proud owner of 4 dogs, Gracie our English Mastiff and Kalli our Black lab, Red our Dogue De Bordeaux, and Elvis, the Pomeranian. AKA King of pups. A cat that is like no other cat. So as you can see ->I am pretty busy and I don’t think I know how to slow down….which is ok…we only live once.. I better use as much energy and life as I possibly can….I love to make new friends…and maintain all the relationships I build in person or on the internet..I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to meet all of you. You have each brought something into my life…I know God has a hand in everything and I recognize those blessings! Thanks for joining me on my journey!
I also just want to add that I want this blog/site to be a place for inspiration. Inspiration comes in many forms. Yes, quilting is my job. I hope my quilting gives you inspiration in some way..of course. I also write very freely of my personal struggles and what is going on in my life. I have come a long way in my life…and I am trying to process this journey of life. I hope that it touches you in some way whether it be that you have already been through this stage..or you are going through what I am going through….or if you can’t relate that you just say a simple prayer…send me a good vibe or energy in whatever form you believe. If you ever need that from me..please contact me I am always available for that. The views expressed here are my own personal views……Charisma’s Corner. That doesn’t mean I am right or wrong. It’s just where I am in whatever process I am in. So I always welcome your thoughts in love. Much inspiration .Many blessings!
