Alli discovered quilling when she saw a co-worker's beautifully quilled wedding invitation in a frame. She taught herself how to quill and even cut her own strips of paper. When she became a stay-at-home mom in 2002, she and her husband turned her unique quilled designs into an online business, Quilled Creations www.quilledcreations.com. Quilled Creations has become the world's leading supplier of paper quilling products. Alli has been published in many magazines and is the author of numerous quilling books including Paper Quilling Kit for Dummies (2009), Quilled Flowers: A Garden of 35 Paper Projects (2012) and Quilled Jewelry (2013).
