Did you know?

The term handmade is generally utilized to define crafts created by a craftsman rather than a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is unique because it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary knife and sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with just thimble, needle, and string to quilt hundreds of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to produce a thing distinctively for you.
