The term “seamstress” – do you feel it’s outdated? From dressmaking, alterations, hand embroidery, quilting, knitting, crocheting – there are so many different types of sewing.
When I talk to people unfamiliar with sewing – they don’t seem to understand the differences and lump all of those categories into just one – “sewing.”
Lots of inaccurate stereotypes about people who sew, what we do, why we do it, and that all of us want to open up an Etsy shop.
Is there a better way we could characterize ourselves and various specialties?
Let’s start a conversation here!
