The art of traditional porcupine quill work is quickly becoming a lost art. There are a very few who are keeping it alive. People like my friends Christy Hensler and Nancy Fonicello. With that said contemporary porcupine quill art is taking new interest. I am very glad to say that I have been quilling since the early 1970's. I incorporate it in many of my jewelry and art pieces. I even have a beginners section on traditional porcupine quill work in my book, "FlatWork" So were do you buy porcupine quills? The best place is from Sarah Tronti of Onedancingcrow. Sarah has spent the last 17 years perfecting the dying process of porcupine quills. Her colors are amazing and the quality of her porcupine quills are suburb. In addition, Sarah carries African porcupine quills, other critter parts, leather, ceremonial drums, sinew and much more.

I know the hours of standing over the hot die pots and the hard work that goes into Sarah's day, why?, because Sarah is my mom.
