The term handmade is commonly made use of to define crafts created by a craftsman in contrast to a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. Not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife as well as sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with only thread, needle, as well as thimble to quilt numerous little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also talent to create an item distinctively for you.
