A while ago, the Google-maps-based Burdastyle resource map changed from being an advertising-site for businesses to a free resource map, a great way for us members to tip each other off about shops we love.

I think it’s an excellent idea! I’ve sent in my four favourite shops in Stockholm and just looked at the map to see what other gems may be hidden there. Not much, at least not in Europe, I must say.

Norway, Denmark, The UK and many more countries have NO listed shops, and I know from discussions here and from reading blogs that there ARE great, great resources around.

I’d like to encourage you all to send your favourites to Burdastye so we don’t all have to make our own private research before travelling. Where’s that huge, fabulous shop in Paris that I’ve heard of, and the street lined with shops that sell affordable fabrics in London?

See the map + detals here:

    Still no progress on the resource map, and this post remained hidden in the dungeons of the forum so I’m probably the only one who’s ever read it (sick and tired of all the website bugs!) … this is an attempt to once again push for help from the members to turn the resource-map into what it should be!

    You have to e-mail David to get things added to the map. I suggested my business, but when I didn’t want my whole address included because I work from home they refused to list me. They said it must be a retail location to get listed? I teach sewing and pattern making, there is no retail.

      Good luck! I hope you added your favourite supply-shops too? In case I travel to Texas anytime soon ;-).

    I have just seen your plea & had no idea they made the resource open for non-paid listings! jolly good too! I have emailed David with a link to my Google map I created earlier in the year with listings of sewing shops I go to in London, and one from Fehr Trade for Brighton so fingers crossed they can use it!

      Yeeeeey! Great, thank you – especially since I visit London sometimes :-)
      Now we just need help from the rest of Europe.
      Anyone from Milano, Rome, Paris up for sharing a few secrets?

    Oh, and Burdastyle, any chance of changing the title of this topic from “Resort” to “Resource”-map? Silly me made an unnoticed spelling mistake when I added it… it would be greatly appreciated, this way it’s a bit confusing!

    I sent a couple in for Washington, DC. Not as exotic as Milan or Paris, but hey it’s my home. :)
