“The Art of Quilling” Quilling Card Company August 30 - October 20, 2018

Quilling is the ancient Egyptian art of rolled, shaped, and glued paper that results in creating a unified, decorative

design. The art of quilling has been around for centuries, with a remarkably varied historical background spanning

across the continents. Quilling Card Company has embraced this beautiful art form and is proud to have become the

premier source of preserving and sharing this lovely lost art.
