About Whimsiquills

Welcome to Whimsiquills, your online source for all of your quilling supplies. We have it all: quilling papers,

specialty quilling papers (gilded on edge, pearl, metallic, pearl on edge, graduated, two tone,

wide cut/specialty cut, holofoil, mixed/multi, parchment, spectacular, & full sheets) quilling tools,

books about quilling, quilling kits and pattern booklets, glues and fixatives, and even cards and novelties

to put your quilling in or on. We have even brought a line of Fiskars border punches to dress up your

quilled cards and scrapbook pages. But let me tell you a little more about us.

 

Whimsiquills is a family business located in my home in Enfield, CT. My name is Pat Caputo and I am

the quiller in the family and I have been quilling for more than thirty years. I started Whimsiquills in 1981 as a

way to sell some of my finished work. At the time I was an “at home mom” who loved to quill; I sold my

work at home parties, craft shows and later at craft malls. I also taught quilling and gave quilling demonstrations.

As my children grew up, quilling became more and more the focal point of my life. I joined the English quilling guild

and authored a newsletter for American quillers for eight years. I was one of the founding members of the

North American Quilling Guild and hosted three of their national conferences here in Connecticut. My designs

have appeared in “The Book of Paper Quilling, “Paper Quilling (the weekend crafter series and

 “Family Circle Magazine”. I had the honor of being chosen to give a two day quilling workshop to members of

the Fiber Arts and Stitchery Guild of Hawaii, (yes it was in Hawaii!) I also did a quilling segment for the

DIY network; and was thrilled when I was asked to coordinate the 2007 and 2008 Quilling Design a Day

Calendars for Accord Publishing. Two of my custom quilled pieces toured with Exhibits USA traveling Museum

tour. You can see how quilling took over my life.

 

Over the years it became harder and harder to find quilling supplies in local craft shops. Through my associations
with the quilling guilds, I came to personally know the owners of some of the major quilling companies, like Lake
City Crafts, Paplin Products, Quilled Creations, and J & J Quilling, so it was only natural that I started offering their
quilling supplies to other quillers around the world. I now design quilling kits for Paplin Products and of course I continue
to quill. Thanks to the internet, quillers around the world can “find” each other and converse. I share my experience
and expertise with other quillers through my web site and my blog (Quilling With Whimsiquills). You will find
free quilling patterns, quilling reference materials, and lots of pictures of samples of cards, scrapbook pages and
finished pieces to help “jump start” your creativity. These are downloadable so you can print them out for your own use.
These sites give me an opportunity to reach out to quillers I may never get to meet in person. I hope you enjoy your visit
at our site, feel free to contact us with your questions or comments. Whimsiquills@cox.net or toll free in USA and
Canada 1 877 488 0894. When you call us you will speak with Debbie, me (Pat) or Ross . . . no “voice mail jail”. If you
call after hours
