I am just wondering how these items are picked. I am guessing the majority of them have to be based on a Burda pattern. Some choices are a mystery.

    And why don’t the featured items on the front change on a regular basis anymore?

      I noticed the website changes taking awhile to change as well, but I assumed it had something to do with Jamie and Jillian leaving http://www.burdastyle.com/blog. Also i’ve noticed a lot more Burda projects on the front page instead of member projects – it used to be very member project heavy
      I’ve been on here for years and i’ve noticed the change long term esp it stopped being “open source” sewing … I wonder if Alden still works here?

      I’ve been wondering that. And why there hasn’t been a new gallery in months – the last ‘best projects of the month’ was back in March. The galleries and featured items on the front page (especially when it’s member projects and not just Burda products) were a great thing. It feels like we’ve lost a lot of that sewing community aspect that there used to be and now it’s just the Burda corporate stuff. It’s almost like it’s now we’re allowed to post on their site, rather than it being the community of user’s site.

      Yes there have been same major changes on BurdaStyle.com recently and we have just acquired a new community manager that will start to feature more user projects and galleries…the last couple of months have been a transition for us and we are more focused on the community now more than ever so please bare with us through this transition :) Expect more member projects and spotlights in the very near future! Hope you understand.

    Sewnotwork I always assumed it was chosen by how well your garment was finished, how clear the photos were and your wording in the description. I’ve had a few on the front page and I would assume that its all about how clear you are. I try to be very descriptive in my posts at least

    I don’t think it goes by view count or comment numbers. I think its chosen by a person…
