    a seam/a stitch

    Is there any diffence between the two, when speaking about sewing?

    Re: a seam/a stitch

    not a teacher

    Hi,
    as I searched for the answer, I think that:
    The "Seam" is the joint, the solder in a cloth, besides the "stitch" is a point,
    a hole that is part of the seam.

    You can say about a man injured: "he had ten stitches".
    furthermore, a scar can be seen as a seam.

    hope I made no mistake and that helps you.

    A seam - the line along which two separate pieces of fabric are joined - is made with a number of stitches. They are fundamentally linked but have different meanings.
