      Drop

    • B.

      Race

    • C.

      Hit

    Correct Answer

    Never put pins or needles in your _______.

    • A.

      Mouth

    • B.

      Skin

    • C.

      Skin or mouth

    Correct Answer
    C. Skin or mouth
    Explanation
    Putting pins or needles in either the skin or mouth can be extremely dangerous and can cause serious injury. Both the skin and mouth are sensitive areas of the body, and inserting sharp objects can lead to puncture wounds, infections, and other complications. It is important to avoid putting pins or needles in these areas to prevent harm to oneself.

    Always turn the hand wheel ___________ .

    • A.

      Towards you

    • B.

      Away from you

    • C.

      Upward

    Correct Answer
    A. Towards you
    Explanation
    Turning the hand wheel towards you is the correct answer because it is the standard direction for operating most machines or devices. This direction is commonly used to tighten or engage mechanisms, ensuring a secure and effective operation. Turning the hand wheel away from you would have the opposite effect, potentially loosening or disengaging the mechanisms. Turning it upward is not a common direction for operating a hand wheel and may not have any specific function in this context.

      Up

    • B.

      Off

    • C.

      On

    Correct Answer
    B. Off
    Explanation
    The phrase "thread your needle" refers to the act of putting thread through the eye of a needle. In this context, the correct word to complete the sentence is "off" because when threading a needle with a sewing machine, it is important to turn the machine off to ensure safety and prevent any accidents.

    Take up lever should always be at its ____________ point when starting and stopping a seam.

    • A.

      Highest

    • B.

      Lowest

    • C.

      Middle

    Correct Answer
    A. Highest
    Explanation
    The take up lever should always be at its highest point when starting and stopping a seam. This is because the take up lever is responsible for pulling the thread from the spool and feeding it through the machine. By starting and stopping at the highest point, it ensures that there is enough thread tension and prevents any loose stitches or thread snags.

    • A.

      Drop

    • B.

      Pick up

    • C.

      Race

    Correct Answer
    A. Drop
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "drop" because dropping the presser foot is a common action performed when using a sewing machine. The presser foot is a part of the machine that holds the fabric in place while sewing, and dropping it allows for smooth and even stitching.

    Rate this question:

      Left

    • B.

      Each

    • C.

      Right

    Correct Answer
    B. Each
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "each" because the sentence states that both hands should be on each side of the pressor foot. This means that one hand should be on the left side and the other hand should be on the right side of the pressor foot.

    • A.

      Top right

    • B.

      Bottom left

    • C.

      Top left

    Correct Answer
    C. Top left
    Explanation
    To hold the spool of thread with the thread coming off the top left means that the spool should be positioned in a way that the thread is coming out from the top left corner. This suggests that the thread should be pulled upwards and towards the left when being used.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When sewing a seam always use a ___________ at the beginning and end of the seam.

    • A.

      Knot

    • B.

      Backstitich

    • C.

      Lockstitich

    Correct Answer
    B. Backstitich
    Explanation
    When sewing a seam, it is important to use a backstitch at the beginning and end of the seam. A backstitch is a technique where you sew a few stitches forward, then sew back over those stitches in the opposite direction. This helps to secure the seam and prevent it from unraveling. By using a backstitch, the seam will be stronger and more durable, ensuring that it holds up well over time.

    Iron safety -- When ironing always stay a(n) _______________ away from others.

    • A.

      Arms length

    • B.

      Foot

    • C.

      18 inches

    Correct Answer
    A. Arms length
    Explanation
    When ironing, it is important to maintain a safe distance from others to avoid any accidents or injuries. Staying at arm's length ensures that there is enough space between the iron and other people, reducing the risk of burns or accidental contact with the hot iron. This distance allows for better control and maneuverability while ironing, ensuring the safety of everyone around.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    When not in use always place an iron on its ____________.

    • A.

      Heel

    • B.

      Butt

    • C.

      Back

    Correct Answer
    A. Heel
    Explanation
    When not in use, it is recommended to place an iron on its heel. This is because the heel of an iron is designed to provide stability and balance. Placing the iron on its heel helps to prevent accidental tipping or falling, reducing the risk of damage to the iron or any surrounding objects. Additionally, the heel often has a non-slip surface, which further enhances stability and prevents the iron from sliding or moving while not in use.

      Pin

    • B.

      Seam ripper

    • C.

      Needle

    Correct Answer
    C. Needle
    Explanation
    The given options "pin," "seam ripper," and "needle" all relate to sewing. However, a pin is used to temporarily hold fabric in place, and a seam ripper is used to remove stitches. On the other hand, a needle is an essential tool used to sew fabric together by hand or with a sewing machine. Therefore, the correct answer is "needle."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    • A.

      Pin

    • B.

      Seam ripper

    • C.

      Needle

    Correct Answer
    A. Pin
    Explanation
    A pin is a small, slender piece of metal with a sharp point at one end and a round head at the other. It is commonly used to fasten or hold fabric or other materials together. In comparison, a seam ripper is a small tool used for cutting and removing stitches, while a needle is a thin, pointed object used for sewing or stitching. Therefore, the correct answer in this context is "pin" as it is the most relevant item among the given options.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    • A.

      Pin

    • B.

      Pin cushion

    • C.

      Needle

    Correct Answer
    B. Pin cushion
    Explanation
    A pin cushion is a small cushion or pad that is used to hold pins and needles. It is often made of fabric and filled with a soft material like cotton or wool. The purpose of a pin cushion is to keep pins and needles organized and easily accessible while sewing or doing other crafts. It provides a safe place to store the pins and prevents them from getting lost or causing injuries. Therefore, a pin cushion is a logical answer given the context of the words "pin" and "needle".

      Ruler

    • B.

      Tape measure

    • C.

      Seam gauge

    Correct Answer
    C. Seam gauge
    Explanation
    A seam gauge is a tool used in sewing to measure and mark hems, seam allowances, and other small measurements. It typically consists of a ruler-like piece with a sliding marker that can be set at a specific measurement. This allows for accurate and consistent measuring and marking of fabric. While a ruler and tape measure can also be used for measuring in sewing, a seam gauge is specifically designed for this purpose and is often preferred for its precision and ease of use.

      Ruler

    • B.

      Tape measure

    • C.

      Seam gauge

    Correct Answer
    B. Tape measure
    Explanation
    A tape measure is a tool used for measuring distances or lengths. It consists of a long, flexible strip of material, typically marked with measurements, that can be extended and retracted. Unlike a ruler or a seam gauge, a tape measure is designed to measure larger distances and is more portable and versatile. It is commonly used in construction, sewing, and other applications where precise measurements are needed over longer distances.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    • A.

      Seam ripper

    • B.

      Seam remover

    • C.

      Seam picker

    Correct Answer
    A. Seam ripper
    Explanation
    A seam ripper is a small tool used in sewing to remove stitches or seams. It typically has a sharp, pointed end that can be inserted under the stitches, allowing them to be cut and removed easily. The term "ripper" suggests that the tool is used to "rip" or tear out stitches, making it an appropriate name for this type of tool. "Seam remover" and "seam picker" could also be plausible names for this tool, but "seam ripper" is the most commonly used and recognized term.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    • A.

      Yarn

    • B.

      String

    • C.

      Thread

    Correct Answer
    C. Thread
    Explanation
    The answer is "thread" because yarn and string are both types of thread. Yarn is a type of thread made from fibers, usually used for knitting or weaving. String is a thin piece of thread, often made from cotton or nylon, used for various purposes such as tying or sewing. Therefore, thread is the most appropriate answer as it encompasses both yarn and string.
