Quilling Classes December 2013

Happy new year to our blog readers! Oh, can't believe that it's already 7th of Jan! I'm so not ready with 2014. >_<

To begin the new year with, I would like to share some photos from our quilling classes conducted in December last year.

Adult Beginner Class
We first started quilling class in Dec 2012. And this is our 8th class already!





Kids Holiday Fun Quilling Class
It's our second attempt conducting kids quilling class. This time we made quilling easier for these young quillers by rolling corrugated/ board strips. The strips are wider and thus easier to work with for our young learners. (We use this KIT for our kids class)







Quilling is fun! Don't you agree?

Referring to the above pattern, arrange and glue the Poinsettia petals together before placing the tight coils in the centre on top of the petals. Glue the Poinsettia and leaves at the lower centre of the card, followed by the candles and the candle light.
Tips: The yellow tight coils for the Poinsettia centre can be substituted with yellow or gold colour pearls or blings to give a different look.

We hope you enjoy quilling this! Happy Christmas!

Spreading the love of quilling 2013

In an effort to spread the love of quilling, we had took part in two exciting events this December!

The first one is a free quilling workshop for children, jointly organised by PnQ and Seedling Learning Centre, on the 1st of Dec. Altogether there were 20 plus children participants. Initially the parents were there to assist heir younger children, but ended up they themselves also had fun quilling. We each made a poinsettia card and a simple Christmas tree tag.

The second event is a quillers-meet-up which was held on the 7th. We had fun quilling and meeting other quillers. We also had a Christmas card exchange session. Since everyone enjoyed it, so we probably will meet quarterly in future.
