Quilt Artist Lisa Hagstoz Calle talks about her BERNINA Q 24
Having the Q 24 in my studio is a little slice of heaven.Lisa Hagstoz Calle, Longarm Quilt Artist

About Lisa: With a degree in Textile Management and Marketing, Lisa Hagstoz Calle soon began to explore the “other” side of textiles, the artistic side. She fell in love with quilting in 1997 and discovered longarm quilting in 2004. Her award-winning original designs have opened the door to teaching opportunities so that others can learn from her art and skills.
