sewing patterns
Posted: Sunday, February 09, 2020 12:15:04 PM
I wonder zaz if you realise that sewing patterns are what you use to CUT OUT a fabric so it can be sewn. FABRIC is the material(patterned or otherwise) so why do you call fabric "sewing patterns"?
Please rename sewing patterns with 'Patterned Fabric' or similar. how on earth a customer can find fabric with the labels you use is amazing.
thank you

I've wondered about that for quite a while myself.

A sewing pattern is a template made of thin tissue paper. You pin it to the fabric and cut the fabric according to the template and sew the pieces together to make something. A sewing pattern has nothing to do with the pattern on a piece of fabric.
It is conceivable; however that someone would make a pattern/template that is printed directly on a piece of fabric. I have seen such before.

I have one such 'pattern' which is a cut and sew tote. I've never sold it here but I've had it up for a while. I agree that fabric should be called something other than 'sewing patterns' because there are many uses for fabric besides sewing. Upholstery is one use and there are others as well. I don't know why they don't just call the category 'fabrics' or maybe even 'yard goods' or 'cut fabrics' or something.
