Many elderly people remember being taught as children how to crochet a practice handed down through the family for years. The exact beginning of this special craft has been argued for years with many countries claiming this honor. In our own country the first English settlers did it in order to provide various garments for the family. Crochet quilts were often made for babies. Originally used to create such things as lace and other adornments it was soon found practical for clothing and bed coverings. For many years afghans were a favorite and many won ribbons at county fairs. They were especially appreciated for their practical use when someone was ill.
Why should you use Swarovski crystal rhinestones? Because they will last the lifetime of each quilt that you create. Although there are less expensive rhinestones available they may not continue to adhere to your quilting blocks when washed. A quilt is an heirloom. If your rhinestones fall off it will lose some of it`s value. Genuine crystal rhinestones will add an amazing touch of sparkle to your next quilting project. All you need is your own household iron.
