Then how about hand sewing vs machine sewing? I only hand sew.

Yep, artisan is right!

artisan you beat me to it. Etsy defines what is handmade for selling on etsy.

one could also argue, using a scroll saw is not handmade, its a machine. so, do i need to do it by hand with a coping saw?

I also cook w/out a mixer- does that make a cake of mine more handmade than someone using a mixer?

and i machine sew.

brickhouse (this is hypothetical of course) do you think that machine sewn items should be disallowed?
