Teach Quilling Classes

I started my own business and create quilled crafts for craft shows and teach quilling classes to small groups and organizations, children over the age of 10 and adults.  If the children are under the age of 10 and show an interest and have adult/parent or guardian with them while they quill that can be an option.

Below is a list of ideas of what I can do and can teach classes on. If there is a specific theme, or interest I could create or dig up ideas to create something that could meet the needs of the group.

I walk through every step as a group or to the individual who is sitting in the class. I sit down and join the group and create the same item with the person/group and teach every step as we continue to build on a project until completion. Some people in the group might be faster or slower and I work with everyone's speed to assist them with whatever level they may be at or if they need me to assist in another way I come over and help.  It is a very laid back relaxed environment sometimes the radio playing softly in the background during the class time and there maybe open conversation going or just peaceful quiet.

Supplies cost per person $25 that covers the slotted quilling tool, quilling paper, xerox copied instructions, history of quilling write up, class evaluation, cardboard wrapped with non-stick paper for a place mat and all can be taken home in a zip-lock bag. I provide the glue and the scissors for each workshop/class.

I am willing to teach classes in Albany County, Rensselaer County and if it is under 2 hours to travel from Cohoes, NY.
I can meet for church functions, girls night out,  craft guild, girl scouts, or at a local cafe, libraries for one on one or group hang out.

I can provide a location if you do not have a location to meet at. The location is:

Paper Crafters Unlimited, 568 Columbia Turnpike, Rensselaer, NY 12061 phone number 518-512-5088, website 

I do work full time during the day at my main job. I am available mostly on weekends (Saturdays 10 am to 6pm Sundays 1pm to 6pm) and maybe a few evenings during the week.
Just contact me by email staceysmile{at}gmail{dot}com to set up a time, theme or idea/technique you like to learn, and how many in your party or where you would like you like me to hold a class.

Possible materials other then quilling paper that a group or a single person can use in the classes: manila file folders, toliet paper & paper towel rolls, CDTA blue bus passes, magazines and newspapers. I may be able to supply some of these supplies but if your interested in holding a class with these supplies let me know so we could create a plan to collect and then hold the class.

1)      Snowflakes (1 hour for each one that is made) in large or small scale, or with 
normal quilling paper or manila file folder (I have plenty file folders to use, 
just give me advanced notice so I can cut them up a head of time).

2)      Christmas tags (1 to 2 hour class)

3)      Paper towel or toilet paper roll ornaments
(3hour or 2 hours ) to make 3 or 4 in that amount of time.


4)      Mini cards (2 or 3 hours)

5)      Bookmarks (2 or 3 hours)

6)      Flowers (2 or 3 hours) pick one of the flowers below,
add it to the front of a card.

7)      Jewelry pendant and earrings (2 or 3 hours)

8)   Angels (3 or 4 hours)

9) Tulips in Basket (1.5 to 2 hour class)

10)  CDTA blue bus pass roses - it takes 2 blue passes
 to make one rose. (1.5 hours to 2 hours)

I teach craft classes to the East Greenbush Girl Scouts during the summer. I can also teach these classes out to the public, either at a library, school group, church group, or a ladies night out. Prices can be negotiated by per person or as a group can change to help the group to meet. I will list the supplies needed to meet for each class and either the person I make contact with to hold the class or I will provide the supplies depending on each situation. I usually provide all supplies when I hold my classes. I usually get paid when I send an invoice after the class or get paid individually per person in each class. Send me an email to contact me

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quilling tool to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

Children age 12 and older, teens and adults are welcome to attend. If your a beginner or at a higher level I can provide teaching and have the time to work on projects that are simple or that can challenge you.

PLEASE RSVP and there is a $5.00 reservation fee to sign up to reserve your seat.  You can call, email (staceysmile@gmail dot com), or stop by the store to reserve …

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.

Quilled guitar

I finally stopped procrastinating and followed through with a clients project she asked me to do a month ago. I used quilling paper to create a guitar. It is a 8 by 10 frame and fits the frame. It took 4 hours to create. Created 9/4/16

The second image is is what inspired me to create the guitar with the tulips. It is not my design it is a vector I found on the web.  I liked it and it helped motivate me to create.
