Sewing is STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math)

Science: Sewing tools and inventions were created because of science. 

Technology: Sewing includes the use of technology. Sewing machines, fabric, needles, other notions, and sewing patterns are manufactured using technology in order to produce these items.

Engineering: Engineering is building, creating, and/or solving. Design is a huge element of sewing. You can create a pattern or follow one. You can even embellish your project using your own special touch. 

Arts: Sewing involves creativity. Adding certain creative elements such as a bow, a button, a ruffle, or something else. Each project created is unique.

Math: Sewing uses a lot of math. This includes measuring, making adjustments, cutting, sewing, measuring again, and putting pattern pieces together.  Math is also used when sewing seams and hemming.


Here are tips for keeping your sewing machine in optimum operating condition:
  • Replace your sewing needle every time you begin a project. A dull or slightly bent needle will cause poor stitch quality and the needle could break.
  • Clean the dust and lint out of the bobbin case area after each project. It is also easier if you vacuum the lint out using an attachment. Do not blow the lint out because it could blow the lint into the sewing head.
  • Plug your machine into a surge protector which avoids power surges and low-power "brown-outs."
  • Get your machine serviced and cleaned at least once a year.
