Did you know?

The term handmade is commonly used to describe crafts produced by a craftsman in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is special because it is not mass-produced. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife as well as sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter functions with just needle, string, as well as thimble to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to create a thing distinctly for you.
