About Quilted Treasures
Jo Ann Gruber
Jo Ann was born in Oklahoma and has lived in various locations in the U.S. and overseas as part of a USAF miltary family and has been a resident of Alaska since 1971.
She has been quilting for over 30 years. She purchased her first Gammill (an Optimum) after leaving a career in the corporate world and started quilting professionally twelve (12) years ago. A few years later she added a Statler Stitcher, became a Certified Statler Instructor, and a sales representative for Gammill.
In 2012, Jo Ann and her husband, John, became the Independent Authorized Dealer for Gammill Quilting Systems serving the state of Alaska. She teaches quilting at local area shops and offers various longarm-specific quilting classes and Creative Studio training in her studio.
John retired from a 37-year career with the USAF and Federal Aviation Administration. He does some quilting and enjoys making small wall hangings that are donated to the local Friends of Pets organization for their yearly auction.
John also enjoys woodworking and has taken up woodturning in the past few years. An avid bicyclist, John has biked in many of our 50 states. In 1998, he biked across the country (Seattle to Washington DC) raising funds for the American Lung Association.
This past year he has taken up fat tire winter riding enjoying the great Alaskan outdoors year round. Although a fan of Brooks Saddles, none of John’s bikes sport a Brooks
