Hi BurdaStylers! I’m back from The Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Atlanta and what a great show. Did you catch our Fashion Show LIVE on Facebook? If not click to view because it was a great show with garments flown in from the BurdaStyle Fashion Factory in Germany! Read on to see the fashion show program and links to all the patterns sent down the runway. Also see where we will be next!

If you didn’t catch the live show you can watch it here. I cannot even describe how beautiful these garments are in person, the fabrics used are the most luxurious and really flatter all the pattern’s silhouettes. Our models also did a fabulous job showing off these patterns.

Check out the program below and links to all the styles…

In additional to the BurdaStyle fashion show I also held daily trunk shows and got to meet BurdaStylers in person! Friday was “Wear your BurdaStyle Day” so everyone who wore their sewn BurdaStyle patterns got a special pin and present from me.

Wear your burdastyle

My favorite part of these expos is meeting everyone and being surrounded by so many sewists. I love talking to everyone and answering their questions about BurdaStyle and sewing in general, so if you find yourself in an expo city I encourage you to come out and say hello!

Atlanta Booth

Here is a picture of Ty our amazing Community Manager working the Burda booth and educating expo goers about our digital patterns. Ty and I even had a chance to walk around and purchased some fabric for a special project I’m working on for us.

Here is where we will be travelling to next:

I’m also teaching two daily lectures in Lakeland and Cleveland about digital sewing patterns, drafting your own skirt sloper, and athleisure.

See you there!

    I watched half of the fashion show video but the video quality is horrible. Is there better video somewhere? Love the garments, just wish you could actually see them on the video
