Over a year in the making, The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook has officially been released in the U.S. and we decided to celebrate by throwing a party at Housing Works in NYC! Friends, partners, contributors and BurdaStyle members (some even flew in from out of the country!) all came through for a great night of seeing new faces, catching up with old friends and celebrating our first publication.
Special thanks to SINGER® for making the party possible; Housing Works for the event space; Spoonflower for providing the fabric for our Make + Take booth; Megan Nicolay for her glitter tattoo skills; the great crew at Random House; the folks at Have Booth Will Travel and photographer Vanessa Rees for the awesome pictures; videographer John Sabia; and our amazing contributors, members, friends, and partners – you all made this an event to remember!
