100+ hashtags for Instagram #sewing

 

sewing hashtags for InstagramI admit that I didn’t get what all the fuss was about on Instagram until, like, 2 weeks ago. I followed a couple people, and when they didn’t post lots of sewing pics, I lost interest. Usually I do not want to see pictures of your dinner. It just made me hungry. I need no help in the getting hungry department, thank you very much.

But I found the “explore” button, and so I explored for a bit. Some sewing, yay! But mostly random people’s selfies and, please, enough with the glamour dinner plate shots already! Finally, finally, I figured out hashtags are the way to go. Aha! I’m slow, but I got there.

So I’ve spent the last few days digging deep into the fun of Instagram, and I collected a fair amount of relevant hashtags that are starting to get me where I want to go. These are helpful to use as a search mechanism to find great new people to follow, or you can choose to use them on your own posts to help you get discovered in the vast InstaUniverse. I suggest you use hashtags on your first comment under your image. You can then edit, add or delete them.

I have found a bunch of lovely accounts, and I’m getting more social and posting more pics as well! You can see what I’m up to at “grayalldayblog

Do you have some favorite hashtags? Leave them in the comments and I’ll add them to the list. Happy Gramming!

  1. You don’t want to see food pictures and I don’t want to see pet pictures—why is it that people need to post so many — isn’t one a week enough? 🙂

    I too realized hashtags are the way to go. I would love if Instagram allowed you to create a list of hashtags and then view a feed based on just those hashtags. After you follow 100+ people it’s too easy to miss posts.

    Thanks for the list! I’ll add a few: #sewaholicpatterns #madebyrae #threadtheorydesigns #deeranddoe #oliverands

    • Oh yes! I forgot about the obsequious pet pictures! Haha! I agree, being able to control your feed by hashtag would be awesome. There are some people in the world that sew AND do other things (not me, of course) and then those food/pet/selfies wouldn’t show up in the feed.

      Thanks for adding to the list!

  2. I always feel like some seamstresses that follow me might get gipped since I don’t really tie all my social media (besides my blog) to sewing.. since im mostly visual, I like to document my life via instagram.. so every now and then it’s like cat, cat, beer, food, brooklyn, me doing something ridiculous, and a dress.

    I’ve realized that the more you like sewing related things on the explore feed, instagram will tailor to it. For a while I was liking a lot of yoga and fitness, and then I was so tired of seeing the same thing over and over.. I’ve almost got it tweaked to my liking.

    there’s actually a few here i haven’t thought of using, so thanks for that!

    • That is good to know that the explore feed will adjust to your preferences. I’m going to play with it more this coming week (in the name of research!).

  3. Love the list, thank you very much for compiling it!

    Another hashtag that’s recently (well, last few months) come into use is #indiesewing. For use when sewing indie patterns.

  4. This is great! I’d like to add #tinysewists – for kids who are sewing. A little self-serving because it’s the title of a series I posted on my blog, but I love seeing those little kiddos getting a start on the fun!

  5. These are awesome! I may have missed it, but I usually use #sewingforboys #sewingforgirls #sewingforbaby and this week #kidsclothesweek I’ve discovered so many great sewers out there via IG!

  6. Just found your list. It’s wonderful! Thank you. I had been starting my own, but you did the work for me. I teach sewing so … #sewingclass #teachingsewing and sometimes it’s in a library with a #makerspace

  7. Just found your blog. THANK YOU for these sewing hashtags! I hadn’t thought of the #sewcialist tag – love it! I’ll start using these on my instagram for #mysewingprojects. And I totally agree… I’m so sick of instagram food I almost don’t need to eat in real life. Ha! I’ll be back to visit. Have a blessed day!
