Did you know?
The term handmade is generally used to describe crafts created by an artisan instead of a factory. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife and sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with merely needle, thread, and thimble to quilt thousands of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and skill to develop a product uniquely for you.
