  1. Thank you so much! Do you mind if I share your images with my sewing community on Facebook? They are beginners and they’d totally love these. Very insightful.

  2. Hi Nikki!
    Awesome blog! I am developing a new Fashion Blog that is very interactive, informative, personal. I have a segment on Hand sewing and I would love to come interview you and give the readers a visual of the components and terms. If you’re interested please email me to go over the details.

    Look forward to hearing from you!

  3. I love to sew! I am not the best at it but I learned when I was about 12 and I love having that skill. I think it’s important to have. I am a huge blog junkie as well and I love to learn new things on it. Sometimes I have to be in person though to accurately learn how to do something.

  4. I’m glad that you clarified that a baste uses long stitches to keep the fabric together. I have been wanting to start learning to sew, but don’t know the terminology. I’ll have to start learning more words soon, so I can follow instructions without making mistakes.

  5. Hello Maile,

    I have an ESL YouTube Channel isaacsenglish, one of my viewers has a request for sewing vocabulary. Can I use your images to make a video for my Spanish students?
