Getting prepared for the Quilling Guild’s Annual Celebration Weekend in September. All the information is here http://quilling-guild.weebly.com/hartley-wintney-2017.html.
Our Regional Table this year will be ‘Clocks and Jewellery’. Some of us are using a glass petri dish to create our timepieces. A great protection for both quilling and clock hands. Here’s mine.
Petri Dish Clock
3D Grandpa Teddy – he rocks!
This Grandpa Teddy is quilled using my unique invention – a Wheatsheaf Pom-pom.
He features in “Quilled Teddy Bears” book http://www.quilling.karoo.net/learn.htm#books35 along with fifteen more delightful bears, including these “Anniversary Bears” – a great greetings card for that special occasion.
The Quilling Guild’s AGM and Display of Quilling will be in New Earswick, York, this year!
And you can come and visit Paul and me demonstrating quilling in York’s Castle Museum on 2nd September. Paul will not be in Regency costume!
Really looking forward to visiting NAQG Conference. Getting in the mood by making my name badge (which turned into a plaque!) It’s a pity most folks from Nashville have two feet – I seemed to have proved I am useless at symmetry.
I often meet up with new people who are interested in what I do. If they have never seen quilling before and I do not have strips to hand my explanation usually results in a bemused blank gaze! Now I have solved the problem. I always have my keys with me so I can simply show them the fob and instantly the problem is solved! My thanks to Shiro Ono for his lovely blank fobs – the correct depth for quillers.
From Jane’s ‘Locking Tweezer Letters’ DVD
These letters and numbers are just magic! Such a simple but effective new quilling technique can produce the four shapes necessary to make every letter and every numeral!
A demonstration is so much better than diagrams so we’ve created a DVD.
Just go to http://www.quilling.karoo.net/learn.htm#videos or email firstname.lastname@example.org to order it and use this new quilling idea to make wonderful birthday cards or free-standing words for your friends and family.
You can buy locking tweezers from jjquilling.co.uk.
Paul once quilled ‘Lord Baden Powl’ for QT and he will appear in our Owl-themed Regional Display at the Guild’s AGM/Display of Quilling in Sherborne, as it sparked off a multitude of pun-fun ideas. East Riding Quillers have made: “Owl You Need is Love”, “Beach Towl”, “Intellectuowls” and I’ve even had a go at “Simon Cowl”.
Anyone want to take a guess at this one? Click for a closer look.
