I am a creative designer, author, instructor and product developer for the craft and hobby industry. My projects have been featured in various craft magazines, including internationally. I have been contributing paper projects to craft books since 2004. The most current book is Quill It Easy.
My book The New Paper Quilling was released in April 2006 and it went paperback in 2010. I have been quilling since 1980.
My (64 SKU) line of Provo Craft Stand-Outs quilled stickers were sold on QVC and featured on HGTV's The Carol Duvall Show. They are retired but you can still buy many designs on eBay here.

Quilling, also known as paper filigree, is the art of rolling narrow strips of paper around a pin-like tool into a circle and shaped to form three-dimensional designs. The origin of quilling has been traced to European monasteries of the fifteenth century, but the actual creation of the art may date back to the thirteenth century. It is believed that feather quills were originally used to roll the paper strips.
