Did you know?
The term handmade is commonly used to describe crafts created by an artisan as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. However, not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and also stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with only thimble, thread, and also needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to produce an item uniquely for you.
