Sewer vs. Sewist

I've been seeing a new word creep into the sewing world vocabulary - "Sewist."
It intrigues me. 

OK, it's true.
For the first 15 pages of Google images (at least)
this was the only kind of "sewer" depicted. 

Perhaps we more creative types don't want to be associated with that type of sewer.  Word Spy has some interesting history on the use of "sewist."  There is also an entertaining column in the Bangor Daily News about the term.  So, what do you think?  Tailor?  Seamstress?  Sempstress?  Sewer?  Stitchologist?  Sewist?  Does it matter?

Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
