Quill Ease Slotted Motorized Quilling Tool Review and Giveaway

 Congratulations to FirstBlushes, winner of this giveaway!

There's a revolutionary new tool in the quilling world called Quill Ease. It's from 3Birds Studio and is motorized! I tested it out over the weekend and am excited to tell you how much fun it is to use. Just slide the end of a paper strip into the slot, press the button on the handle and whoosh... a moment later you'll have a smoothly rolled coil - just like magic!


quilling-tool-quill-ease

The battery-operated tool (AAA battery included) is sturdy, quiet, and eliminates tedious hand rolling. It's a breeze to slip a strip into the wide slot and the chubby handle is lightweight and comfortable to hold. While the Quill Ease Tool is ideal for beginner quillers and those with hand or vision problems, everyone else will find that it is simply an enjoyable and fast way to quill. I can just imagine the belly laughs of children who give it a try!

A wooden circle template and a selection of quilling strips are included in the package along with a cap to protect the slotted tip when not in use. There is also a detachable disc that fits over the tip to help slide a coil off the tool and into the circle template where it can expand. I have to admit I don't find it necessary to do this, but it may be useful for beginners.

quill-ease-tool-supplies

While the crimped coil center is larger than the one my usual favorite tool produces, I found that by altering the way I normally shape a coil, I was able to incorporate the crimp as part of the design. Here's a closer peek at my example... the center of each flower petal is flattened for a unique look.

Quilled Flower Card

Watch for Quill Ease to make its debut on July 23rd on HSN television and hsn.com. The bundle pack will include Quill Ease, wooden template and a starter pack of quilling strips for $22.95.

Sorry if this is a repeat - I didn't see my comment after I hit Publish -
My previous comment:
Oh man! This tool looks interesting! I'd tried different ways of doing the same thing - (attached my quilling tool to cordless screwdrivers and drills, and they just ripped the paper strip out of my hand - TOO FAST!) I'm glad someone finally got it right. I usually quill with 1/2" wide strips, so I think the wider center is just PERFECT! Great job!
