Hello my quilling fellows

I'm really excited to announce the launch of the first social network made specially for quillers like us.

Here you can blog your artworks, upload the photos of your lovely quillings and find tutorials. You can ask questions and get answers your from experience quillers, make groups, participate in forums, find quilling events held in your area and even win prizes by participating in our competitions. The choices are limitless and all in one place.

Quilling is a rare art form and is not known worldwide like other crafts. Is not as popular as painting or embroidery or jewellery making and the bunch of us who quill can feel lonely. At least that's how I felt sice the moment I discovered quilling. I very rarely see any quilling supplies in shops and never seen any books in libraries. There wasn't a specific place where I could ask questions or or get tips about how to quill. Which one is the best quilling tool? What's the difference between a slotted quilling tool and a needle point one? Where can I buy good quality supplies? What are the best quilling books? This are few of the many questions I asked myself in the past and had to spend ages online finding the answers. I many time wished that there was a place where I could just ask the question, go and do some quilling and come back few hours later and the answer will be there. I couldn't find a place like that so I made it myself (with help form my lovely husband, Andy) .

Quilling cafe is a great place to make friends and interact with people who have the same passion as you. It's free and easy to use. You can make an account in just few minutes or sign in with your facebook, twitter, google or yahoo account.

At the moment is just me and my husband there and we feel quite lonely. Please join us. The network is waiting for you to make the place buzzing. You are important so please let me know if you have any problems. Feedback is very appreciated. You can find me by clicking my name at the bottom of the page on Quilling Cafe

What are you waiting for? Go and have fun. Sing in and let's start socialising. Can't wait to meet you all there. See you on the other site :)

Thank you Sonia.

Gordana, it would've been nice to have a photo of yourself to upload so we get to know you but that's not mandatory. You can upload any picture, a smiley it's ok. You can put one of your quillings, that will be nice.

The necessity to upload a picture when you sign up is to stop the spammers from making automatic accounts and put their adverts up.

Thanks for signing up and can't wait to see your lovely quilling pieces up there.
