Sewing and Quilting

Share

So much around us is sewn, from our clothes to home décor.

Once a basic technique of sewing by hand or machine is mastered, it is a craft that can be used to furnish a home or dress your family.

Sewing is the fundamental process underlying a variety of textile arts and crafts, including embroidery,tapestry,quilting,appliqué and patchwork.

Although usually associated with clothing and household linens, sewing is used in a variety of crafts and industries, including shoemaking, upholstery, sailmaking, bookbinding and the manufacturing of some kinds of sporting goods.

For thousands of years, all sewing was done by hand. Fine hand sewing is characteristic of high-quality tailoring, custom dressmaking, and is pursued by both textile artists and hobbyists as a means of creative expression.The invention of the sewing machine in the 19th century and the rise of computerization in the later 20th century led to mass production of sewn objects, but hand sewing is still practiced around the world.

There are many types of quilting that exist today. The two most widely used are hand quilting and machine quilting.
Hand Quilting is the process of using a needle and thread to sew a running stitch by hand across the entire area to be quilted. This binds the layers together. A quilting frame or hoop is often used to assist in holding the piece being quilted.
Machine Quilting is the process of using a
home sewing machine or a Longarm machine to sew the layers together. With the homesewing machine, the layers are tacked together before quilting. This involves laying the top, batting, and backing out on a flat surface and either pinning (using large safety pins) or tacking the layers together.

Get creative with fabric and stitching to create wonderful embroidered pictures, gifts, cards or anywhere else your imagination may lead you.
