Quilling Books Giveaway!

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries. Scroll down to see who won!***

I meet the nicest people online.... Alysn Ford and I began corresponding about quilling - snowflakes, to be exact - back in 2008. Recently she wrote to me with the offer to send an All Things Paper reader two quilling books she owns in duplicate. What a kind offer! Of course I said yes, so here are the books the winner will receive:


Miniature Quilling by Diane Boden Crane




Alysn wound up with an extra copy of each when she received the Search Press composite book of four previously released quilling titles, Beautiful Quilling Step By Step, which includes Quilled Wild Flowers by Janet Wilson, and Quilled Borders and Motifs by Judy Cardinal, in addition to Quilled Miniatures and Three-Dimensional Quilling.


Alysn compared the composite with the books she already owned, and determined that with the exception of the table of contents being moved to the very front of the books, and the removal of the images on the end pages and the covers, the content is identical to the originals. (I tell you all this in case you've been thinking of ordering the composite, but have wondered if you'll miss out on something important - you won't.) Thus she's happy to clear some shelf space by giving away her duplicates, which are in fine condition.

The giveaway is open to anyone with a U.S. mailing address, and the rules are simple... to enter just leave a comment.

Giveaway ends at the end of Saturday, July 23. The winner will be chosen by random.org and announced on this post and Facebook the next day. Good luck!

Disclosure: As always, book titles are affiliate links.

Update: Congratulations to Leanne, commenter #42, as selected by Random.org. Leanne, Alysn will be sending off the books as soon as you email me your mailing address. Many thanks to all who took the time to enter!

  35. I learned to quill back in 1981 at a women's retreat. I loved it and kept on quilling for 10 years--selling things at a local consignment shop and/or giving them away. I had to give it up for some time due to my job, but after retiring I am once again quilling. I've been using the books from Jane Jenkins and several other authors. I recently purchased a fringer and like to make dimensional projects, but I've never tried the miniatures. I'd like to learn them--something new. Currently I'm only able to get books at the local library.

    Quilling is a beautiful craft. Though I dont do it as often as I would like, anything I have ever created is given to a person that shows as much love that I have put into it and for the art. I love making things and giving them away. I would love to be able to learn 3D quilling and start making some new and different pieces. Thank you for doing this, what a great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh how wonderful! Quilling has given me so much pleasure. The longer I quill the more I realize that is so much more I want to learn about this art. I will be 70soon and completely enjoying this time of my life.
