Janet Root has been quilting since 1989, but dressmaking for many years before that. She has taught quilting classes at many area shops and local guilds. Her quilts have been exhibited locally and at NQA and The Schweinfurth Gallery in Auburn. Her kaleidoscope quilt, Nagano, appeared in the 2000 AQS Art Quilt Calendar, and January Frost was published in a recent issue of Traditional Quiltworks.
