Welcome to Hand Fasting, an online quilt shop dedicated to serving the needs of hand quilters!
at www.handfasting.info started as part of a natural progression that began in October, 2011. It was inspired by an exciting response to a request for hand quilters to share their work on the blog Michigan Quilts. The article asked hand quilters to create a link to a hand quilted item on their own blog. The response grew, and hand quilters from all around the world requested a blog where they could share more than just one quilt. They wanted a forum to discuss, compare, and enjoy hand quilting with others who also had a passion for the process. The blog Hand Fasting began with a group of talented hand quilters from around the world who were willing to take turns and write articles about their own quilting experiences. Following the blog’s success, a Facebook group was started. As of June 27, 2014, the Facebook group now consists of over 7,100 hand quilters! If you would like to be a writer for the Hand Fasting blog, or would like to join the Facebook group, please email Caron.
Throughout many discussions, quilters shared their frustration with the lack of available resources for hand quilters. They not only wanted a shop where they could find supplies, but a person who knows about hand quilting… someone who is a hand quilter themselves, someone they can lean on when they have questions or need suggestions. As a result, HQS was born.
Hand Fasting, started in May 2014, is owned by Caron L. Mosey and is based in Flushing, Michigan, U.S.A.. The shop’s goal is to continually increase inventory that is specific to the hand quilter. Quality hand quilting thread, thimbles, needles, notions, and everything the hand quilter needs and wants will be available. If something you need is not found on the site, or if you have a how-to question, please feel free to ASK CARON.

Happy Shopping, and as always, Hand Fasting!
