About the holy thread and our unique handmade crafts

Here's my story with needle and thread.....

After the first time I used a sewing machine and working with needle and thread for a Home Economics project in school, I thought I would never dare to touch one ever again! That project was a disaster!

Interestingly, sewing(especially quilting) came looking for me after twenty over years! Due to a cycling accident, I can’t do the things that I used to do. It was during this time that one of my friends introduced sewing to me. Since then, the rest is history! I had never attended any physical sewing courses and I learnt sewing and quilting through YouTube tutorials (so grateful for the technology). 

To my surprise! I found that the sewing machine is not as intimidating as before and I grew to love the art, especially quilting. I am fascinated by the colorful pieces of fabrics beautifully pieced together, forming different patterns. 

What is Quilting?

Quilting can be considered one of the first examples of upcycling, as it has historically made use of remnants and offcuts for the creation of new products. There is no limit in creativity when it comes to quilting. Quilts can be used as ordinary household items or to beautify to our homes, lives and world!

Why are our handmade crafts unique?

Each of our handmade craft has its story or inspired by something or someone. Much thoughts were put into each design, not only making our crafts aesthetically pleasing to your eyes but its functionalities, quality and attention to each detail are not compromised. I spent a lot of time and effort into sewing each craft with you and the receiver in mind. I always imagine the surprise look on the receiver’s face and a big smile on your face when you opened up the package. This is my way of expressing my blessings and gratitude to all of you who appreciate our handmade craft. (You can read more Why buy handmade crafts?)

Why called the holy thread?

Why called the holy thread? 

Needle and thread hold different pieces of fabric, batting and backing fabric together. I hope the holy thread is the connection that brings all the different communities, cultures, beauty and creativity together so as to keep this art of quilting passing down from generations to generations.
