Did you know?
The term handmade is typically used to define crafts created by an artisan rather than a factory. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. However, not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary knife and also sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with only thimble, needle, and also string to quilt thousands of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to create an item uniquely for you.
