Quilling Basics - Getting Started

Quilling, or Paper Filigree, is an ancient art form that some say dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Today we use a variety of papers in varying lengths and widths to create our quilled masterpieces. Quilling involves taking strips of paper and twirling, rolling, shaping, and gluing them together. The name Quilling is derived from the name of the tool that the 16th century nuns used to create their shapes.

Information about Quilling can be found here:
Quilling as an art from or craft has a very low cost startup. The basic tools are generally things that you have around the house or they do not cost a lot of money to purchase. Most people can get started for less than $25. Information about what you need to get started can be found here:

I am your newest follower!! I just want to thank you for sharing your artwork, tutorials, tips and heaven knows what else I may find I am new to the art of quilling and when I found your web site through NAQG it was like a dream come true. I sent my membership fees to NAQG last Sunday and I am hoping to hear from them in the near future. I also have applied for membership in the Yahoo group. Again, thank you Antonella for sharing all of the information on the art of quilling that you have provided to me. Your art work is gorgeous and it is a honor to learn from someone as talented as you.
