Dave and I had the best time exhibiting at the Craft and Hobby Association tradeshow! We met so many wonderful store owners, professional crafters, teachers, buyers, etc…at the show in L.A. We miss the weather too!!

BUT after six long months of working on new quilling kits and tools, I finally released them at the tradeshow! I’m so excited that I can share them with you! I’ll posting them throughout this week!

This year the Quilled Creations’ booth was the biggest it has EVER been (10′ x 40′). It’s a overwhelming task to get set-up. Like the “circus” curtains?  I’m glad our booth cover them up!



We had new quilling videos playing throughout the show.  They will be up on YouTube very soon for you to enjoy! I have to admit, it’s awkward watching myself demo, but I have so many techniques that I really want to share with you.  So you might only see my hands :)

We also had a Make & Take table.  I think we had 150 people try our Make & Take!  The response was amazing…


Arctic Buddies

Of course after all of the other “Buddies” kit, this one was just waiting to happen! I love the penguin (even though he’s from other other side of the arctic)! It includes quilling paper, wiggle eyes and instructions ($9.95).

Elegant Floral Cards

I love how the tri-fold cards frame these quilled designs!  Each flower uses a unique technique that you might not have tried before. Hey, it’s always great to learn something new! I even included colored photographs in this kit!  Includes quilling paper, 6 tri-fold oval blank cards, 6 envelopes and instructions ($12.95).

More posts to come this week…three more NEW kits…and one was awarded “TOP 20 Innovative Product of CHA”!!!

    Congratulations, Alli! In addition to seeing the other new kits, I’d love to hear about the logistics of getting such a huge booth and its contents out there for the show – quite an undertaking!

    After looking at your pictures, my daughter, who is 9 and loves to quill with her mama, said “I want to go there!” We are excited about the new kits! As a homeschool mom I always plan some sort of craft to go along with our studies and this is perfect for the land animals she is studying right now.
