BurdaStyle at Maker Faire

Makerfaire_medium

This past weekend BurdaStyle (along with 96,000 others) were at Maker Faire in San Mateo, California.
If you guys are not familiar with Maker Faire, it is the country’s best science fair created by Make Magazine to “celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the DIY mindset.”
While there we taught hundreds of people how to sew using our quick-and-easy free make + takes with Singer sewing machines and Britex fabric. Check out our slide show from the event.

To all those interested in joining BurdaStyle, click here.

We wanted to give a huge shout out to those who made this event possible.

Make + Takes from Maker Faire

Maker_faire_blog2_medium

If you are in the Bay Area this weekend (May 22&23) you should come by Maker Faire and join us for a Make + Take! We will be having two, quick and easy projects to create. You can sign up for either the Easy Drawstring Bag or Roll-Up Organizer.

We will have awesome fabric provided by Britex, the four story, amazingly inspirational landmark fabric store in San Fransisco and sewing machines and a brand new line of irons provided by SINGER (who are also a part of the Swap-O-Rama-Rama tent.) Once your project is created, you’ll also be able to iron on some cool graphics!

It’s going to be a lot of fun! So, stop by booth 218 in the expo hall, pick up great goodies and create something!

See you all this weekend!

Help Those Affected by the Nashville Floods

Nashville_medium

Being part of BurdaStyle, as I have been for the past 2 1/2 years, you develop relationships with people all around the world. One such person I have had the pleasure to get to know is our member Ashchaser. When her status was updated last week to: “We Nashvillians need your help! Clothes, shoes, anything, will do!” I knew BurdaStylers would love to help. From Ashchaser herself here is a first hand account of the devastation and what you can do to help:

When witnessing the effects of natural disasters on the news you cannot help but feel sympathetic to those far away people, trying to deal with what has happened to them in the best way possible. Yet on May the 1st and 2nd my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee would experience something which has left me with so many more feelings than just sympathy itself. In two days our midstate received about 13 inches of torrential rain, making for the first monsoon I had ever seen in my life. On that Saturday it started with just flash floods, as well as the advice to just stay put wherever you are and wait it out, without panicking. Although many people like myself were out and trying to get back to the city, packing the roadways towards what would be the epicenter of the chaos. Soon the interstates were overtaken by nearby rivers and streams, causing many to abandon vehicles for their lives, and ripping up the asphalt wherever it was in the way. The situation became dire when those who stayed at home noticed that floodwaters were quickly reaching their back doors, and would end up needing rescue by boat with few belongings and their pets.
