Did you know?
The term handmade is commonly used to define crafts produced by a craftsman in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is special because it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a hand-crafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife as well as sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter works with just string, thimble, and needle to quilt thousands of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to develop a thing distinctively for you.
