Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is generally made use of to describe crafts produced by an artisan in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. However, not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary knife and also sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter works with merely string, thimble, and needle to quilt thousands of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to produce an item uniquely for you.
