I love to quill--create intricate designs from narrow paper coils and scrolls. Every quilled item in my shop has been made by me. The tools that I use are crafted by my husband, Gregg. He also makes wooden bases, metal hangers, or any other needed display items.

QUILLING as an art form began to flourish in the early 1600’s. French and Italian monks and nuns made the first pieces using paper from old documents and letters and the gilt-edged pages of old books.

This is the blurb that accompanies all of my quilled pieces. It gives a very brief history of this ancient art. I began quilling many years ago as a hobby and a way to create unusual Christmas and Easter decorations. I taught a few classes to girl scouts and elementary school classes, but did not have much time for this intricate art. Now that I have retired, I am able to pursue what has become a passion.

Some pieces I create are two-dimensional, but I really enjoy creating pieces in three dimensions. I like to use color and shapes to capture reality with my coils and scrolls of paper.
