21 Sewing Terms Every Beginner Should Know

Sewing by machine is a skill that takes practice and a basic knowledge of “Sewing Terms”.  I used to teach a class aimed at new sewing machine owners, and my goal was to incorporate as many sewing terms into that class as possible. 

The class was offered  free with the purchase of a sewing machine at the store where I worked. 

Armed with the knowledge of knowing how to use the sewing machine just purchased along with some basic knowledge of skills and terms, most of our new sewing machine owners were well on their way to a fun and satisfying  hobby.

One of the blogs I love to read is “Colette”, the Publishers of
Colette Patterns and Seamwork Magazine, and the latest blog post was none other than “21 Sewing Terms Every Beginner Should Know“.

Written by Katie Whittle, here’s a little bit about her:

Katie teaches new skills through in-depth tutorials, sewalongs, and articles for Seamwork Magazine and The Colette Blog. She’s all about encouraging sewers to try new techniques and create a personalized wardrobe that makes them feel great!

Check out her great article, then come back here and let me know what you think of it, and happy sewing! 

Nowadays you’ll find me sharing this kind of knowledge at our local library “Sewing Social in Trenton”.
