    I got hooked on Burdastyle from going on Burdamode.com. Burda is a brand I’ve been familiar with all my life and it seldom disappoints.

    I found out about the magazine first, and then did an Internet search for Burda, and very happily stumbled across Burdastyle. I’m so glad that I did!

    I just googled burda and happened upon his site and at first was just browsing through the projects regularly to see what other people were making. After a while I discovered the other useful things on this site and have been using it to help me with my own projects.

    I learned about it because of the Burda magazines, one of the two prominent sewing magazines here in The Netherlands. I love looking through them and getting ideas for new things and I love using the patterns!

    I learned about Burdastyle through a Fiskars post on Facebook – I am both a Fiskateer and a Fiskarette! The wedding dress drawings are fabulous. I have only done a little dressmaking years ago, mostly I do card making now, with sequin baubles, occasional sewing and crocheting as the mood takes me!

    I learned about Burdastyle from my sewing teacher. She entitled her class "Burdastyle " and I had to goggle it. After learning a few simple techniques, I became more and more interested in sewing. I love buying patterns and notions. I really need good scissors, I sometimes use the kids blunt school scissors.

    I learned about BurdaStyle from a link on the Textile Arts Center’s web site. I was going from web site to web site trying to find more and more ways to gain sewing knowledge. Love BurdaStyle and was disappointed I hadn’t found it sooner!
