    1. Unfortunately, I don't. I made them when I had time away from my full time job. I've been trying really hard to do them more often. What kind of tutorial are you looking for?

    1. Hi Adina, welcome to quilling! Since I've made so many videos, I'm not sure which one you're referring to. I assume you mean the needle tool? It's actually a Kemper Lace Tool. Here's an Amazon Affiliate link:

      The thicker paper I like using for on edge quilling is called Canson Mi-Teintes, and I buy it at local fine art supply stores, but here's another link:

      When you look at the notes below my videos, you'll see a list of resources. Here's a another link for them:
