Hi...I'm new to the forum & very happy to be here!

Post by love quilling on 2011-05-23, 21:04

I've been quilling for about a year, mostly flowers on cards. It's a holiday here in Canada, kind of windy/rainy, so I thought today would be perfect to do some internet surfing and I found this site and joined!

As mentioned, I mostly do flowers...pretty basic, so I hope I can pick up some wonderful tips here. I took a look at some of the posts and it really looks like I've found a group of people I can share ideas with and learn from!

When I tell people I quill, they ask 'quilt?' lol! I know only a couple of people who dabble a bit in quilling. I love it - quill on breaks and lunch at work, when watching tv, on vacation....I'm hooked cheers

I'm very happy to be here!!!! flower

Hi Karen and welcome to the Forum.

Quilling tools are not a high priced item but here are three or four different types.

A needle tool, which is exactly what you would expect, a long needle glued in to a handle.

There are slotted tools. Some are cellok pins (excuse spelling) which are also glued into a handle.

There is also a "fine" slotted tool which is usually metal.


Also available is a tool which is one of the longer hand sewing needle with the end of the eye removed.

Creative Quilling has most of these in their Quilling Supplies.

Here is the link to their on-line catalogue featuring the tools.

Creative Quilling Tools

You can sometimes buy tools at Spotlight or Lincraft and Riot Craft, if in your area, has slotted tools.

Hi Karen I am new to quilling enjoying it (not very good) but I enjoy it and they say practice make perfect. Some of the work on the site is stunning.
I only have a basic tool if you find a good one let me know.
