Newbies in 2015

Dear Indian Quillers,

I am very glad to share many news in the last day of this year.

New Design teams, New challenges, New Sponsors and so on.

Our Challenge group will have monthly challenges from 2015.
  • The end of each challenge will fall on the last day of the month, hence you will be having much more time to create and share your project with us!
  • Our design team projects will be shared all month long and we will pick a few of our favourite submissions to share along the way as well!
  • Our winner and toppers will be posted on the fifth day of the following month and if chosen you will be asked to be our guest designer the month after that.
Now about our New Design team

I have a great pleasure in introducing our new design team - beautiful talented ladies
 I am born and brought up in Bhilai (Chattisgarh). I did my engineering from Govt Engg College, Jabalpur and did my masters in Engg from BITS Pilani. I was in Ahmedabad from 2003 to 2008. There I worked for 5 years in a telecom software startup (Varaha Systems). In 2008 we moved to Hyderabad. Because of kids I left the job and decided to be with them. Then that time I came across ‘quilling’ word. I got to know that it is a type of craft work. I am mostly aware of all forms of art and craft but this word ‘quilling’ was very new to me. I researched and found so many lovely things which can be done using quilling. It was so fascinating to see that what all can be made with paper strips.From that point there is no turning back.
My idea of giving some time for myself is to spend time with paper,glue,my tools and now jewellery supplies.I love experimenting and learning new crafts and to be frank I design my stuff when I go to sleep or when I am cooking.As a child I was always keen in making cards for friends and family.I used to find new techniques to make others feel special on their day.Always wanted to be a good Artist and crafter.With the support of family I have been making time for my passion with 2 kids around..
I enjoy Rangoli making,sketching,painting(on my to do list),jewellery making,polymer clay,glass painting,paper quilling and last but not the least cardmaking/scrapbooking/

Stamping.I hope in future as well I continue to learn and experiment with new crafting techniques everyday.
 Hello! My name is Shruti, I am so glad to be a part of the Indian quilling challenge Design Team. I am from the city beautiful ' Chandigarh' but currently stay in Bangalore. I discovered my quilling talent in April ' 2010 when I had to quit my job and move with my husband to the States, And since then there has been no looking back.  There are two reasons why I love to quill - since it requires a lot of patience to make a perfect quilled pattern , it helps me slow down, relax and be a peace with myself and secondly coz I love being a part of someones memories and more so love the happy Thank you's that I receive back!

Hi, I am Megha Jain. I am a curious homemaker (SAHM in joint family). I call myself curious, as I soon get curious about things. I try to learn new things out of curiosity. I try to find and clear my concept each and every time. My family calls me crazy. However, I call myself a learner, as I feel that every second of our life we learn something new.
Crafting has been my passion since childhood. I don't remember from which age, but my mom recalls, that I have been drawing before I joined my preschool. In my school, I was almost always a first place winner in drawing. I used to make cards from childhood and gift on birthdays etc.
I keep changing my hobbies.. My kids have grown, and now I have a lot of free time.. which took me again to my favourite work. From two years, I am interested in paper crafting. I am loving every bit of it. I love making cards, envelopes, quilled projects, scrapbooks... any anything related to paper craft.I am really thankful to my hubby and family who has always given me their full support. 



 Hi. I am Jovita Dsouza from Mumbai. I would like to thank shyla for this opportunity to design for the Indian quilling challenges. I have been closely associated with IQC since it's initiation. And it gives me great pleasure to now join as a DT member.
After dabbling in the field of accounts for many years. I decided to give my creative streak a thought. What started as a hobby has now become my full time profession.
I enjoy all kind of craft work but quilling has a special place in my heart. I love to make cards, albums scrapbooks. And I try yo incorporate quilling as much as possible in my work. I do hope through the IQC we can work together to grow and promote the art of quilling. Cheers

Hi everyone, I'm Jasleen and I'm feeling happy and honoured to be a part of the Indian Quilling Challenge team for 2015.Most of you know me through my blog Happily Ever Crafter I live in the city of Mumbai, India with my husband and 3-year old daughter. I'm a dentist by profession and currently working part-time. I've been blogging since August 2013 and I love spending my spare time playing with paper, inks and stamps. Although I enjoy all kinds of paper crafts, I'm especially hooked to card-making and quilling,which I believe is the most versatile form of art with endless possibilities Thank you Shylaashree for giving me this wonderful  opportunity where I hope to get more inspired and creative and I hope my creativity inspires others as well."
