Designed for use in schools

 

ABOUT

This resource is a set of 24 seam samples mounted onto manilla tags. The samples include:

  • Open seam - 1 sample showing what the right side of the seam looks like and 6 samples showing different ways of neatening the seam edges (pinking shears, overlocker machine, sewing machine overlocker stitch, zigzag stitch, turned edges, binding)
  • Closed seam - 1 sample showing what the right side of the seam looks like, 5 samples showing different ways of neatening the edge (overlocker machine, sewing machine overlocker stitch, zigzag stitch, using just an overlocker machine and using just a sewing machine overlocker stitch) and 1 sample showing a piped seam (where decorative piping has been added to a closed seam) 
  • French seam - 1 sample showing what the right side of the seam looks like and 1 sample showing the wrong side of the seam
  • Run & fell seam - 1 sample showing what the right side of the seam looks like and 1 sample showing the wrong side of the seam
  • Mock run & fell seam 1 sample showing what the right side of the seam looks like, 1 sample showing the wrong side of the seam neatened with an overlocker machine and 1 sample showing the wrong side of the seam neatened with a zigzag stitch
  • Edge to edge seam - 1 sample showing how non-textiles materials can be joined using a sewing machine (this seam can also be used on textiles materials particularly thick materials that don't fray)
  • Lapped seam - 1 sample showing another way of joining non-textiles materials can be joined using a sewing machine (this seam can also be used on textiles materials particularly thick materials that don't fray)
  • 1 sample comparing a seam to a hem as these terms are often mixed up

 

Samples are displayed on manilla tags (approximately 6cm x 12cm) and each sample has a label identifying the seam.  

 

The samples can be used for display or as a handling pack to help evaluate and compare seams.

 

The samples pack doesn't include instructions or information (apart from labels included on each tag). For instructions on how to carry out the seams look at the separate digital resource in our shop titled '001 Developing Textile Skills - Seams'.

 

Colours of materials and shapes may be slightly different to those shown in the images.

 

The samples pack is posted usually on the day of the order but please allow 3-5 working days for delivery.
