Yay, Amelie, who correctly answered short-sided seam. Although my crafting is sometimes short-SIGHTED, my seams never are. Or something.

Thanks to all of you for chiming and, and making this Trivia series so much fun. And, Happy Holidays to everyone. Make sure you take some time to sniff the yarn/smell the roses/taste the chocolate during this busy and sometimes hectic time of year.

......................................................................................................................

This time of year, there's a flurry of activity for crafty folk - gotta get those socks knitted for our loved ones, gotta make some cookies, gotta craft, gotta make, gotta decorate. It's wonderful, and frenetic sometimes, and it just plain makes a maker feel good to do these things.

I, for one, am super multi-craftual, and get quite obsessed quite frequently. My favorite non-knitting crafty thing right now is sewing garments. Mainly for me, because I've been feeling kinda selfish, craftily, lately, but I'm right this minute sewing a dress for my oldest. She's been asking. And asking. And asking.

I'm learning all kinds of things, which is great, and humbling. In fact, seams have been a great topic of conversation among my crafty friends. Which brings me, for the final time this year, to the Tuesday Trivia query: Which of the following is NOT a type of seam or stitch used in sewing?

A. French seam

B. Straight seam

C. Flat-fell seam

D. Short-sided seam

E. Lapped seam

First to answer gets, no, not a dress sewn by me, but the badge of trivia honor!!! Yeehaw!

And, I'm sharing a photo of the dress I made the other day - I looove new crafty obsessions!

Wild Guess

I'm going to take a wild guess and say French Seam :)
Love your dress, Shannon!

Just a guess ...

It's been awhile since I've done any sewing but I think the answer is D - short-sided seam. The others are familiar to me but I've never heard of this one.

btw - that sure is a pretty dress! :)

total guess

and not the first person to guess it but i agree i think the one i am least familiar with is short sided seam - but i almost think they are ALL seams and this is a trick trivia question.

Agree with Amalie

Short-sided seam.
