BurdaStyle Day 2011 was a success!
On Thursday, May 12th the BurdaStyle team celebrated our official day at Purl Soho, eating pops and talking everything from sewing schedules and future projects to favorite materials, designers and more! Check out a few of the photos from the event and find out how you can get involved by starting your own Meetup event where you live!
Given under a month to rally fellow BurdaStyle members and plan a fun event was no easy feat. Nonetheless, many of you performed the task splendidly. We wanted to give something extra special to those who were able pull together the largest Meetup groups for our day. The top five groups will receive special BurdaStyle goodie bags to hand out at their next event, which we hope will be just as fun as the first one.
