I am absolutely thrilled with my Quill Ease. It takes some practice to learn how to use it. But, trust me, once you do, you will fall in love with it just as I have.
The first thing I love about it is the fact that it saves me the calluses and any pain I feel while quilling with just a normal tool. I quill all the time because I love this art so much. That, in and of itself, can cause some discomfort in your fingers and wrist. Once I saw this product, I bought it immediately! It was if 3Birds had read my mind and created it just for me.
The second thing I love so much is the fact that you get all of your quilling done in a fraction of the time it takes to quill by hand. You know when you have glued several strips together and you're staring at that long, long strip and you're thinking to yourself, "OMG, it's the longest piece of paper I have ever seen! No way will I ever be able to get that done!"? Well, with the Quill Ease, I actually look forward to things like this because not only is it fast...it's fun.
Now, as I said...there is a learning curve. You may want to get some strips together and practice with it. You can't apply too much pressure while you are winding your coil. This will cause the tool to stop momentarily until you let up. I have found a trick to prevent this from happening all the time. If you take the strip between your thumb nail and the nail on your forefinger and run it along the strip with a little pressure and pre-curl the strip...the tool will just wind it right up. No problem.
I hope that you order the Quill Ease and get as much use and pleasure from it as I have!Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
