SEW VS WEAVE
Is there a difference between sewing seams and weaving seams?

There are different ways of joining seams. You can use sewing techniques like a running backstitch on knitted garments. You can also do most seams with a mattress stitch, which creates an almost invisible seam and which might be thought of as more of a weaving technique.
