The term handmade is commonly utilized to describe crafts created by an artisan as opposed to a factory. Each handmade quilt is special because it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating blade knife and also stitch them together on the stitching machine. The quilter deals with only needle, thimble, and thread to quilt numerous tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to develop a thing uniquely for you.
