    I was researching some historical sewing, and I believe it was a blog on the regency that recommended help from one of the patterns here :) Hooked since then.

    I learned about burdastyle from my friend Ana, when she picked up sewing she did nothing but talk about how fun it was. When I started sewing she bragged about how wonderful this website was. Ever since then this website has been apart of my everyday life.

    To be honest, I’m not sure where I heard about Burda. All I know is that it’s probably the best thing that’s happened to me and my sewing. Love you guys!!!

    I met the NYC Burda Style crew at a film shoot my sister did for the website last winter. I was so inspired by the people involved and the projects they brought to life that I became a member and started following the site. It’s been great!!

    I hard about Burdastyle from a fellow Home Ec teacher, who posted something about the website on our list-serve. I checked it out, and have become hooked! I was always a fan of Burda patterns, so this is a great extension. I tell my students about Burdastyle, and anyone I know who is new to sewing, or wants to get back into sewing.
