We have so much to share, so let’s get right down to the knitty gritty stuff!
Do you know that there are standard seam allowances for different types of sewing? Clothing construction uses five-eighths inch of a seam, home dec uses one-half inch of a seam and quilting uses one-quarter inch of a seam. These can be assumed, unless the pattern or instructions state differently.
Accurate stitching is important for straight, flat seams in both garments and drapery.
