My grandmother has a magic ability to find out new interests in my life and suddenly, my mother calls me up saying Nany dropped off some stuff for me. It’s always fun to see what she sends over. It used to be crow figurines, lately it’s been quilling stuff.

A while back I went to Mom’s house and she presented me with a plastic shopping bag full of neat quilling items. There were two vintage Hazel’s Quill Designers, five vintage magazines, and a big bundle of quilling strips. Wow!

I think there were two things that struck me when I looked over my loot. First, four of the quilling magazines were from 1974. I think it’s kind of interesting that during the exact year that I was born, someone in my family was buying quilling books that were published the same year, and forty years later, I would become a quilling enthusiast and be given these very same books! How amazing is that?

Second, it is clear to see how far quilling has come since the 70’s. Though the patterns in these books use the same techniques quiller around the world use today, they definitely have their own “vintage” feel to them.

So while I don’t plan on using any of the ideas in the books, I will hold on to them because they really are a treasure!
