Did you know?
The term handmade is commonly utilized to describe crafts produced by a craftsman rather than a factory. Each handmade quilt is special due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses use different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary knife as well as sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter works with merely needle, thimble, as well as string to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to create an item distinctively for you.
