About

Hello, my name is Jo Baner and I live and do my artwork in Whatcom County near Ferndale, WA. I recently moved here from Bellingham (with a brief detour and stay in Arizona) where I have been a longarm quilter for several years. I take in quilts from all over the country. I have been drawn to and involved in the visual arts and needle work since my childhood. I use my love of photography, thread, and fabric to create works of art on both paper and cloth. My life is never a dull moment. I hope my work inspires you and brings you much joy. I live with my husband and two cats.  After retiring from a 37 year career in Respiratory Therapy in March 2011, I am now quilting full time. I really enjoy longarm quilting for other people and in my spare time I enjoy drawing, painting, working on my own quilts, gardening and being outdoors. Can't wait to see what comes next!.....
