Useful Sewing Contractor Terms

There are professional sewing contractors located all over the world. Many of these specialists utilize modern machines to create unique thread patterns and weaves, but also sew and stitch by hand. Depending on what clothing, classic quilt, or unique apparel you need to have made, there is likely a contractor that can assist you. Many of these experts specialize in a specific area, such as embroidering, crocheting, or knitting. Listed below, you will find some useful terminology that may expand your knowledge of sewing.

  • Embroider – This refers to creating unique sewing patterns on clothing, blankets, towels, or other fabrics. Various colors of thread can be used to decorate quilts, apparel or garments to your liking. This stitching may include pictures, words, or letters.
  • Neoprene – A synthetic polymer that resembles rubber, and is used to make certain car fan belts, wet suits, and other products. This material is resistant to weathering, oil, and heat.
  • Bobbin Winder – A part of a sewing machine that allows you to wind thread. This bobbin part is what holds the thread, like a spool. These can be replaced in sewing machines, but external winders are also now available.
  • Blind Hemmer – This is a machine used by some sewing contractors today. It is basically used to hem various types of fabric. Like a sewing machine, a blind hemmer often has a light that allows the user to see where the stitching line is. These machines prevent running and snagging, and allow for a professional finish.
  • Ballistic Nylon – A thick, durable, yet synthetic fabric that is used to make luggage, tool belts, and hand-made motorcycle jackets. This protective material can have unique thread patterns, and is often used to make police belts as well.
