      Hi Masha, nice to meet someone Russian here! I type in English not out of snobbery but because I don’t have Russian keyboard. I will take you up on your offer to answer my questions – I am learning how to sew (how to build a garment, rather than how to use a sewing machine).
      I didn’t post it in the comments so that I don’t offend anyone, but you are 100% right – fashions come to the US with a huge delay. :) Where I live, in central PA, fashions don’t come at all. :)

      I have lived in the US for the past 22 years, so English is good. :) I don’t advertise being Russian because that is hardly true anymore, I spent most of my life here, only memories are left. I have family in PA, Ardmore.
      I started sewing too many years ago in Russia, but didn’t sew for a long time here in the states. I picked it back up in the last two years, started a blog last month. I am not a pro by any means, but I have accumulated a lot of resources, gadgets, tips, so I will try to help if I can.
      I comment on this site once in a while when a topic touches me. A lot of people seem to feel so entitled, angry that collections don’t suit them or that things are not precisely to their liking. I couldn’t find any information supporting it, but I don’t think that Burda US and UK Burda are the same entity. All I could find that this community was started by a person who used to work for Burda Publishing in Germany. Otherwise, I think the reason for the delay ties into reasons related to copyright, and publishing is a separate process, meaning that there is no financial connection to European edition. We depend on a very few companies to offer subscription for Burda UK here in the states. During my recent research, I came across a statement that Verena, Burda knitting edition, is no longer published in english. Makes you wonder how long we will be lucky enough to have Burda around. That is why I was defending the initiative to start independent edition of Burda in US. Just seems like a good idea.
