Italian Words: Sewing or ”Cucito”

Alongside the Italian language course I am taking up, we are also being taught some crafts starting with sewing. I am actually loving it!

So I am sharing a few words I learned recently with our sewing activity:

  1.  Filo or thread

lui/lei cuce (he/she/it sews)

noi cuciamo  (we sew)

voi cucite   (you sew, plural)
