Sanchez's recent designs are also glued to shiny compact discs. Most of her figures are designed to be hung as ornaments, and one small figure can have up to 54 inches of paper strips, while larger quilled images will include many more.
She said an ornament given to her by a friend in the 1970s sparked her interest in quilling. The friend told her it was a "quilled" snowflake, and the memory of that gift stayed with her through the years. When she found a book on quilling at a yard sale, she bought it.
She recalls small craft fairs in the 1970s that were held in a building on West Center St. that originally housed the community's first hospital. Those fairs were held in several other temporary locations until they reached the old Grand County Senior Center on 100 Prada Bag Brown
Making ornaments quilled images gives joy to local crafter
Using an "arthritic glove," which stabilizes the wrist while allowing the fingers to move, Sanchez began to craft ribbon ornaments. The ornaments consist of a Styrofoam core and layers of folded, colored ribbon pinned to the core in elaborate designs. Most are finished with a tassel and a cord with which to hang them on a Christmas tree.

In those days, Sanchez said, she did all crochet work, specializing in angels, teddy bears, butterflies and baby blankets. About seven years ago, pain from carpal tunnel syndrome ended her ability to crochet, so she turned her creative talent toward making Christmas ornaments and a variety of quilled items.
Pilar Sanchez is one of many local crafters who will offer her hand made items for sale at the senior craft and gift fair at the Grand Center the weekend of Dec. 5 and 6. Sanchez said she has been a crafter for many of the years since she arrived with her family in Moab in 1965, near the end of the uranium boom.
Sanchez will share her booth this weekend with her husband, Jose, who, under Prada Red Backpack the appropriately named "Scrap Shop" label, uses mostly scrap wood to craft delicate looking wooden angels, crosses, boxes and sled ornaments using a scroll saw.
