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.
The following instruction links were created before blogs, twitter and facebook, and seem to still be helpful to many.

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 15th century, but the actual creation of the art may date back to the 13th century. It is believed that feather quills were originally used to roll the paper strips.
