Did you know?
The term handmade is commonly utilized to define crafts produced by a craftsman rather than a factory. Each handmade quilt is unique due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses use various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter works with only needle, string, and thimble to quilt thousands of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also ability to produce a product distinctively for you.
