Quill Ease Slotted Motorized Quilling Tool - Review

There's a revolutionary new quilling tool called Quill Ease [no longer available]. 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!

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.

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.
