In my workshop, I taught my students how to make a simple flower and a basic heart. I showed how they could be used on cards, gift tags, and placecards. Here are my sample projects:
Each person got a handout that told about the history of quilling and showed eight basic quilling shapes.
Everyone who visited my table seemed to really enjoy quilling. I'm optimistic that they will return to their organizations and share how fun, easy and inexpensive quilling is. I hope to see lots of quilling projects at the fair this year!
Special thanks to Jennifer, who assisted me during the workshop!
If you're a teacher, Scout leader or 4-H leader in the San Francisco area and would like to attend next year's event, please let me know. Regardless of where you live, please look into your local county fair and consider entering your handiwork (or that of your child). Thanks!
