We’ve got lots of great new digital products for you to enjoy.

Have you been noticing all the fun, new stuff around BurdaStyle.com lately?

We’ve added our own exclusive webinars. They’re one-hour live video presentations (think an expert presenter streaming PowerPoint info on your computer), and they’ve been a great success so far. We’ve got new webinars every week on topics ranging from skills and techniques first-hand notice and a link that will allow you to register for the week’s specific webinar. The webinars have been taught by our fantastic Burda team (including yours truly as of next Thursday!) as well as some of our superstar instructors from The Sewing Studio. Best part? If you can’t attend a webinar live, you can download on-demand recordings of past webinars.

What else?

You’ll also soon (Monday!) get to experience our first online course! We’ve taken the most popular class from The Sewing Studio (the sewing classes I started in my Toronto apartment that have now grown into locations in Toronto and NYC), and we’ve converted that to a self-guided online course that you can walk through with the help of a talented instructor.

We’re also working on some fantastic videos, so stay tuned for more about that. Also, offline, we’re about to unveil a brand new BurdaStyle magazine! More details about that soon!

So stay tuned! I’ll be sure to keep you posted of everything else we have going on. Can’t wait to have you join us. I’m looking forward to being a part of your sewing growth. I encourage you to challenge yourself, learn new techniques, and, as always, keep sharing your ideas, projects, comments, and tips here with the other members of our BurdaStyle community.

    I’m interested in this class but I have some questions before I register, who should I contact? Is it too late to register as the class has already started? What is the format of the class? Can I download the materials and work through the class on my own?

      Thanks for your interest! You’re right, the course has started so registration is no longer available. But we’ll definitely be adding more online courses, so keep an eye out! And for future reference, the classes are online, so they’re self-paced, and they include coursework. And yes, you can download the materials provided and work through the course as independently as you like. (Plus there’s an instructor who guides you through any questions or challenges.)

    Not only is the $299 prohibitive, but it was also short notice. You may want to do a survey to find out who has taken online classes before and how much they were AND who has taken in-person classes and the costs of those. NY and Toronto are expensive places to live, so basing the prices off of locations that many don’t live won’t give you a good idea of how much the class is actually worth to this international audience.

    Ausgeschlossen! Für den Preis “knobele” ich lieber selbst etwas länger und zahle eigenes Lehrgeld. Und es gibt ja auch noch Bücher …..

    Thank you, everyone, for your feedback. We based the price on a discount from what we charge for the same course at The Sewing Studio New York, which is $424. We value your input!

    Wow, $299 for an online course is absolutely outrageous! To take a 4 week sewing class with an instructor in person here in Vancouver doesn’t cost anywhere NEAR that! And their overhead is significantly more than someone teaching a class over the internet. Such a shame.

    I must agree with Cascadia. $299 for one online course is way too much.

    I would love to take a class like this, especially if it’s part of a larger program, but $299 is prohibitive for many people.
