Tiny details improve quality
Do tiny details like how the fabric is cut, size of needle, thread quality, stitch type matter in the finished product? They do.
I take pride in making a beautifully hand-crafted high quality product. And what makes it high quality are not just the materials and the design but also skilled construction. The tiny details in construction make a big difference in the finished product and I am continuously trying to figure out how to improve.
A few such behind the scene tiny details which most customers will never know:
- The pattern is cut with electric hot knife to prevent frayed edges and allow precise and fast cutting of slippery fabrics.
- Smallest size 9 needles are used to ensure that the needles holes are as tiny as possible.
- Poly core industrial thread for strong, long lasting and even seams.
- No raw edges. In the quilts, all edges are concealed within using rolled hemmed seams or inverted construction. For compression sack, I use flat felled and french seams for high strength.
