    I have only been sewing for a year or so, and since then I have really developed a passion for learning new skills. I want to learn it all! Pattern making and pattern fitting, upcycling old clothes into new and exciting things for myself and to give as gifts. My grandchildren love it when make them things! I love the freedom of free-form quilting as well as traditional style quilts. I really enjoy getting Burda emails. The ingenuity and creativeness is inspiring to a newcomer! The patterns are awesome and easy to download. This is one of the best websites for people who sew!!

    I think one of the greatest factors about Burda is it’s international membership!

    As a new sewer, 10 yrs ago when I retired, Ladies at the Senior Ctr, taught me to hand stitch, I did that for 5 years. As, I learned to make simple crafts, I was getting frustrated until I started a Learn to sew class at the local school. The most amazing thing for me is finding Burda (absolutelly true). Bought your new book and go to the web site daily.The book is fabulous! Anyway, I am very excited about this contest. I am new to this, and wonder what it is I have to do ? I will be online Decl1st to see what happens.

    When I read through the comments I understand that even if I live in Sweden I can participate too? Is the Burda-Santa so kind? Tried to find out what the rules are – but don´t find them.

      Hey May,

      Yes, for the majority of the prizes we are giving away, you can participate. We are trying to make as much of the giveaway available to all of our members as we can.

      Good Luck!

    Yay! Can hardly wait! I love reading people’s responses to the giveaway questions, so I hope this year is more than simply “comment to win.”
