BurdaStyle Visits Europe!


BurdaStyle hit Europe with DIY and fashion frenzy!

How'd you Like our April Fools?


For anyone who was on the site yesterday you may have seen our April Fools featured project Fabric Scrap Quilt ReStyle

For anyone who doesn’t have the background on this, last July we posted up the Fabric scrap quilt to less than rave reviews. This was a throwback for anyone who was on the site back then and we think a pretty silly one, though once we took the pictures it did look kinda rad (aside from not covering the back of me AT ALL)

Hope everyone had a good April fools and a great spring!

The BurdaStyle Resource Map (Revisited)

View The BurdaStyle Resource Map in a larger map

Back in November, we introduced our Resource Map, a collection of great fabric, craft and sewing businesses around the world. The idea came from our desire to discover and share some the best places to get a proper sewing, notions or fabric-buying fix.
