Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is frequently used to define crafts produced by an artisan as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is unique because it is not mass-produced. Nevertheless, not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife as well as stitch them together on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with only needle, thread, and thimble to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to create a thing distinctively for you.
