At BurdaStyle we love sharing new things with our members. New project ideas, new patterns, new trends to love or hate. We also love sharing new techniques! From stitching button holes to inserting zippers to interfacing a collar we think having an arsenal of different techniques and tips makes your sewing life so much easier.
Fiskars & BurdaStyle want you to share a fantastic technique or tutorial with us! For the month of February Fiskars is challenging all BurdaStyle members to create and upload a great technique to our Learning section for the chance to win some awesome prizes from Fiskars!
First place will win the ultimate scissor collection and five runner-ups will receive some awesome scissor packages as well! See below for full prize details and how one lucky member can score their own scissor prize pack with our comment to win!
