Testimonials...1ST Time Attendees

Meredith McGuire, Chicago IL
It was a delight to find myself surrounded by so many creative, gifted women -- each of them welcoming
and encouraging. Moreover, in what other art -- and at what other conference, save NAQGCon --
would a rank beginner have the opportunity to learn directly from some of the best artists in the field?
I felt so fortunate to be able to attend the conference, and I hope to see everyone in Delaware next

Karla Schaefer , Poncha Springs CO
As a first time attendee, I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed the 2018 NAQGCON this year.
Before the conference, I communicated with Beth several times with a million questions. She patiently
answered all of my questions and added helpful information to make my experience great. I learned
many new techniques and tricks from the great variety of classes I was able to attend. The make-it
and take-it room was great because everyone shared thoughts and ideas. Everyone was so nice and
welcoming, I’m looking forward to seeing them again at the 2019 conference.

Margaret Putterman, Brooklyn NY
I had an absolutely delightful time. Everyone went out of their way to be friendly and helpful! I learned
a lot and had a lot of fun! Can’t wait for 2019 conference!

Dancing Quillers of VT/NH

submitted by: Steve Caswell, Waterbury Ctr VT

The Dancing Quillers resumed their mini-meets in May with Steve showing how to do
Iris Folding. We created a vase to hold some quilled lilacs to celebrate spring. Some
decided to do other flowers as their choice of vase colors didn’t go well with purple.
Marianne really got the bug and went home and made six more.

In June we met in Enfield NH, Marianne’s home town, to learn basic husking. We cut
out boxes on the Cricut to decorate with flowers.

Sorry we missed the conference this year. It looks like it was a winner. Maybe Delaware

submitted by: Lois Bandt-Weber, Leesburg FL

Lois Weber (AKA Lois Bandt-Weber, my artist name) was
honored to be one of the artist participants in Disney World’s
Festival of the Arts on Wednesday February 7, 2018.

I taught 26 people how to quill. As only one hour and fifteen
minutes was allotted to teach, I figured I had better KISS it
(Keep It Simple Stupid). A snowflake ornament was chosen
to teach as it only used one color and two shapes. Disney
provided the materials to be used and I put the kits together.
My daughter Susan (my assistant) and I had free entry to
the park and were given tickets to any one of the parks for
future use.

Disney people found me, along with three other artists, at
Artisans on Fifth co-op store in Mt. Dora to invite as we each
are very different and creative in our field of art.

Disney provided a guide to help set-up and the sound guys
were terrific. The “students” were thrilled to learn a new art
form. After the program we could enjoy Epcot.

All in all, it was a great experience to be able to spread the
knowledge of Quilling.

The NAQG Archives Committee and Board of Directors would like to extend a quilling challenge
to members of the guild. In museums throughout the world there are examples of exquisite
antique quilling, also known as paper filigree. The challenge is for members to recreate an
antique quilled piece of your choice. Your creation does not need to be an exact replica by
any means. Rather, use your selected antique piece as inspiration for your own creation. It
could be very close to the antique work, or it could be your own quilled art that is loosely based
on your selected inspiration piece. Also, your art does not have to be the same size as the

This is not meant to be a competition. However, the best quilled art will be selected to be
displayed at the 2019 conference, and photos will also be included in Quill America.

The Archives Committee would like to encourage members to begin working on a recreated
quilled work. Please send close-up photos to Lynn Paarmann, Archives Director, at LPaar@ In addition, please send a photo of or webpage link of the antique work that
inspired you, along with information identifying the art.

While you may select any antique piece you want, a good place to start your research is http:// You will find Florian
Papp’s “Rolled, Scrolled, Crimped, and Folded: The Lost Art of Filagree Paperwork.” Other
antique examples can be found online and in many popular quilling books.

We are really looking forward to seeing your art!
