      I also have reservations about this new version.Burda Style in English versus American Burda. Reminds me of Verena Stricken when they tried English “American Edition” Sadly a massive flop which failed. I expect fewer patterns and with “detailed sewing instructions” a magazine that will become too expensive and unrealistic to produce. Good Luck. I will be sticking to the international English edition or switch to the French or German version.

      I am with Mirela here. I buy the Turkish version of Burda Style Magazine and have just about every issue for the last three years (since I discovered it). I don’t want this new simplified US version to affect the magazine I love so much. I don’t need more instructions, thanks. I like lots of patterns and less chit-chat and I LOVE the low price for all those patterns. I sincerely hope that the regular Burda magazine (with millions of satisfied customers) doesn’t change. I am happy if it fills the “gap” in the market for those who want English instructions and fewer patterns, but if it affects my beloved magazine, well, I suppose there’s always Ottobre or Manequim….

        I agree with you. Just as well that Burda speaks other languages.

        I couldn’t agree more. I’m in the U.S. and the jargon used to describe what this new one will be here, terrifies me as I see visions of it being what “Burda Easy” was this year which to me was bad! I love Burda and am willing to see, just hope the UK version is always available to those of us who don’t want it stripped down and fluffed up.

        Yes, this is my fear too. As long as I have the patterns I don’t have to have instructions. And as much as I hate to admit it, the increased price is going to be a factor for me. I get the impression I will still be able to get the UK version.

        We’ll still maintain the advanced patterns in addition to intermediate and easy patterns in order to make sure everyone is challenged as well as inspired!

      I see the US version is going to have 30+ patterns, which seems like fewer patterns than usual. So, are you decreasing the number of patterns to make room for the better instructions and mysterious new content?

        lol. Yes, that’s exactly it. We are fleshing out the instructions so they’re more thorough, more detailed, and easier to understand. And we’ll be adding in new content. The magazine itself will still have the same (if not more) number of pages, but we’re hoping to increase value through what we’re adding in.

      Where can the new US edition be purchased in Canada? I currently get my BurdaStyle through GCN in Toronto as there are no bookstores, news stands or craft / fabric stores that sell BurdaStyle where I live.

      Sorry my previous post was a question and failed to mark it as such, which yes makes me a doof! Just trying to understand long term implications to U.S. subscribers and whether or not we’ll lose the UK edition option.

      Denise – you are doing a fab job at answering all of us who are either worried or excited! Can you disclose whether or not it is the long term intention to cut off the UK version from being distributed to U.S. subscribers and switch just to this new version? I think there are a lot of us long time subscribers in the U.S. that are somewhat terrified by this annoucement at least in the long term! LOL, I know, silly but we love Burda as it is now. I’m all for new changes as long as things don’t get lost in the process. = )

        lol! Thanks! :)

        Yes, you are correct about the long-term intention. I don’t want you to be worried, though. We will be increasing the frequency of the US magazine each year, and we’re following suit of the German magazine, so we’ll be including all their gorgeous spreads and all their gorgeous patterns. Think of a magazine like “Hello!” It’s offered in so many different countries, each catered to its own market. And then international versions (if you still want access to the UK edition down the road) will be available either through the website or through international vendors and distributors.

        I’m so thrilled to hear how much you love the mag as it is now. Be sure to keep me posted about the specific things you love so we can ensure the US mag has all the same great things! :)

      I hope that new US instructions will be hopefully be used as a starting point for foreign language translations or that subscribers who understand English could also get those in electronic version. That would convince me to subscribe again for sure!

      Yes! …I’m looking forward to instructions written in English, not simply translated (although yes, they can be funny at times, I’ve also wasted many hours trying to figure out the simplest instructions because the translations leave a lot to be desired at times!). I admit I’m a little bummed at my subscription won’t be switched to Burda US automatically since it expires in May. I’m certain I can deal with that, though.

      I love all of the new changes and offerings on the site, and now from the print side of Burda as well. Keep up the great work Burda team!

      Where do I enter my email address? Somehow I’ve missed where to do this.

      ETA: Thanks, ladies. So it’s just the newsletter I am already subscribed to. Sometimes I don’t see what is right in front of me lol

      The “literal” german translations are part of the charm of the UK Burda. I often laugh out loud at the descriptions of the garments they can be really hilarious! ie Pants – cover your legs….. or the quaint 1950s style descriptions that accompany the photoshoots.

      I’m guessing the US version isn’t going to be that much different to the UK version (except that it is an opportunity to gain more advertising dollars with localised ad-spend). I’m in Australia so either magazine will be sold at “import” price. Will the “additional” US patterns be available online?

        Yes, everything will certainly be available online.

        Lol regarding “part of the charm”. :)

        It will be similar to the UK, although it will have some styling, more sewing info/articles, fleshed out instructions, etc. The minimal advertising that will be included is a fraction of the standard ad:editorial ratio seen in major US publications, so I’m sure you’ll be very pleased with the content!
