    I honestly cannot remember how I learned about BurdaStyle. It was either through a blog or just coming across it through an internet search. I am so glad I did.

    I learned about burdastyle on the modcloth blog advertising for the “Modcloth handmade contest” going on right now. I’ve let go of the idea of making something really nice (I just made a scarf) to win it but I am very happy to have found this. I usually posted my creations on a fashion advice site called fashism.com and hoped one of the few people who sew saw it and would give me suggestions. It’s a lot easier now to get inspiration and feedback from the sewing community. Yay!

    I learned about burdastyle when I one day was going on burdamode.com to find out what patterns was to be found in the new burda magazine. Bit confused at first :p but warmed quickly up to the new design.
