Meet the Maker
Janice Hagstrom Bailor is a fiber artist and quilt maker from Newport, Pennsylvania, USA. A life-long lover of arts and crafts, Janice has tried just about every medium, either through courses or self-discovery, finally finding her way to quilting and fiber arts in 2012. Janice was drawn to quilting because it encompasses the values of taking timeworn objects and re-purposing them into something new, beautiful and useful, a lesson she remembers fondly from her own childhood. Many of the projects she now creates take on the tradition of using little bits of curated materials and creating a new, modern quilt or other craft piece. Janice is an avid gardener, nature lover, and mother, and therefore heavily inspired by the wonders of nature and subjects that inspire wonder in children. Through her projects, Janice hopes to transfer to others a little bit of the wonder, excitement and love felt when creating.
