But just want to buy a paper Burda pattern?
With the main Burda website redirecting here, I cannot do that, and not all the patterns are available here. There are also times when I don’t want to download a pattern, print it off, tile it up and THEN cut and alter it. I just want to buy and go.
And there are a LOT of sewists out there who use the Burda printed patterns and who have no interest in using anything other than a complete pattern. What are they to do? Many of them are going to look elsewhere.
There are a few places that stock the paper patterns, and I CAN order from them, but with the main site redirecting to here, there seems to be no way to access the pattern envelope information, sizing details, or line drawings of the style details, and these are important factors when choosing a pattern. And in addition, many UK retailers do not carry the full range, especially not the costume patterns.
Advise, please. This seems to be a retrograde step, and a very serious one. Even if it is temporary, lack of access to the full range of Burda patterns is going to lose you a LOT of good will and a lot of sales… People won’t think of Burda first in the future when looking for patterns.
