Home of Quilling, suppliers of quilling strips and accessories
Quilling, paper filigree or the Art of paper scrollwork, can be traced back to at least the 15th century in Europe. French and Italian nuns used to decorate religious objects with paper strips often cut from old gilt edged books. As it became more popular and spread to England and America paper quilling was used to decorate a wide range of objects e.g tea caddies, screens, coats of arms, etc.
During the Victorian age quilling was taught in some schools for young ladies. The Victoria and Albert museum has on display various items decorated with paper scrollwork. The craft has experienced a revival in recent years as it is a relaxing, beautiful, versatile craft that can be practiced by all ages. it is an inexpensive hobby to follow. Quilling can be used in card making,scrap booking,decorating boxes,picture making etc.Once you have mastered the art its possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
