    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Pins are commonly used in sewing as a tool to hold fabric pieces together temporarily before stitching. They are thin, sharp objects with a head on one end and a pointed tip on the other. When sewing, pins are inserted through the fabric layers to keep them aligned and prevent them from shifting. This allows for precise and accurate stitching. Needles, on the other hand, are used in hand sewing or with a sewing machine to create stitches. Sewing pushers and push tops are not commonly recognized sewing tools.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False
