Default Does anyone know where I can get a paper quilling tool from?

I tried JoAnn's but I couldn't find one and I called Michaels to see if they had any in stock, but of course craft stores always hire people who know nothing about crafting lol, and the guy told me he had no idea what I was talking about and wouldn't be able to help me. I'm trying to get one soon, which is why I want to find it in store instead of online. So does anyone know if Michael's have them or AC Moore and if so what area are they normally in?

If you have a Hobby Lobby in your town, I know I've seen them there, along with other quilling supplies in the stamping/scrapbooking section.

Awe man, I don't have a Hobby Lobby here, it's about an hour/hour and half away. I think I'm going to check in AC Moore and Michaels tomorrow

I know I've seen the quilling strips at Michael's in the scrapping/stamping section. I would guess that they'd have the tools, too.

I'm looking for the one with the slot in it. Just the one you use to roll the paper with. I'm trying to use it to make paper beads.

I'm hoping that they will. I want to say I've seen them in my Michaels but I'm not really sure.

Last time I was at Archivers, they had a section for paper quilling.

I make a lot of paper beads and I use cotter pins from the hardware store. They're available in many sizes and "cheap," too.

This what I was going to suggest. I also use a small gauge knitting needle (like about 2.5mm). Actually, I just cut a bunch of strips from a magazine yesterday to make some paper strips. Saw something on Pinterest that caught my eye (I'm sooo addicted to that site!).

The cotter pins are great because they have the slit. It's so easy to get them started.

Have you tried using a large embroidery needle?

I've purchased them at Hobby Lobby.

I made my own quilling tool from this tutorial: Crafts, Kids, Quilling - Inna's Creations: DIY quilling tool made from a needle

I love my frugal quilling tool. It fits perfectly in my hand & I think I have more control over my designs.

I have made one with a large paper clip.... I forget where I read about that.... straighten it all out and make a tight hook on one end.

If you stick a darning needle into the end of 1/4 inch wooden dowell and snip the tip of the eye off ..presto..you will have a quilling tool.

Since it seems you have a computer, you can always order quilling supplies on line from one of the quilling stores. Therea re a couple of them that I do business with. One is the Quilling Superstore. Can't think of the other right now but it is in Ohio. Just do a google search for quilling supplies. Lots of places!

One cork, one Children's Sewing Needle (they're blue plastic and very large...Dritz is one brand). one clipper or sharp scissors. Stick the needle into the wide end of the cork (that'll be the handle), clip off the closed eye of the needle (easy now to slide the paper off the end), and quill away! The cost is pennies, and they last for ages. Crafts stores have bags of corks if you don't have any.

Hi! If you are looking to purachase - I too would suggest Quilling Superstore....they have many quilling supplies, are family-run, and if you are on their mailing list - they run regular sales (maybe weekly or every other week).

Happy Quilling!

Thanks for all the advice guys. One of the lovely SCS ladies is sending me a quilling tool. I'll hopefully post the beads in my gallery when I get done.

AC Moore had them in their new clearance aisles. I saw one last week.
