    Since I am a big fabric hoarder, discounts on fabric and fabric organizers are always appreciated!

    i guess i don’t need discounts, but it is always nice to find something you like on sale or you find that you have free shipping, etc.

    For on-line stores to be competitive with our local brick-and-mortar stores, most needed discount would have to be on shipping. Either totally free or free with low min purchase. Next would be a sliding scale discount when ordering fabric – the more you order, the more the discount. Happy Holidays and thanks for the giveaway!

    I would definitely love apparel fabric to be cheaper. I’m on a student budget and I can’t always afford to buy.

    For a sewing enthusiast, discounts in almost every aspect of sewing, such as machines, tools, applicance, fabrics etc are all highly desired. Sewing is a life long hobby – one collects items as each year goes by. Over the years, I’ve purchased (and still own) 2 Singer sewing machines (one embroiders and quilts), 1 serger, 1 Rowenta steam iron (we invest in the best!), a dressform, loads of fabric from all over the world (mainly Asian countries). Currently, I’m into vintage stuff, like dress patterns which can be pricey. I have dreamed of owing a vintage Singer hand operated sewing machine, the first kind that I learned to sew on. Will my dream come true?

    I think shipping to South Africa is so expensive that shopping online isn’t worth it for me.

    I don’t even want to think about the amount I pay annually for fabric. Any discount in that area would be amazing, although I do also love free shipping. I always feel like I’m getting a bargain!

    Any discount is good. The most used discounts used in this house though are on books, patterns and when I’m lucky, fabric. Now I just need a great dress form discount…..

    I love a good discount on fabrics! With cheaper fabrics I buy them without having a clear plan on what to do with them. To just have them at home and be able look at and feel is the best way to be inspired to try new things with color and shape.

    I would like to see a discount coupon/voucher which is available to all Burda members to use when buying products from companies that have registered on the Burda website.

    It could be 10% all year discount and users have 1 year to use it in. If they don’t they loose it and after say 3 or 5 consecutive years of using the voucher, they could get an extra one as a thank you.

    this means that people have a choice and can use the voucher on the product they want or need. and it means that the voucher does not focus on a small group of companies who may not feel able to offer prolonged discounts.

    For me, it would mean the difference between getting something I really like or just getting something because its all I can afford.

    My old iron has been causing me much trouble, so I need a new one. But I have spent too much on medical bills this year that I have to wait for a good discount to buy one.

    I love discounts on anything for sewing and crafts. However it is usually all the notions that make home sewing expensive so some discounts on those would be especially great as they could be bought and stashed for later. Love, love the iron, wish I could get one here. I have one for the UK but it won’t work here in Trinidad, wrong voltage, so this one would be magic they are fabulous to use.

    The way my bank looks at the moment I need a discount on everything (Christmas…same every year) but generally I want more discounted fabric. It is hard to find unique fabrics in my town in the first place and when I do they are super expensive. An online isn’t really better. Sometimes you think you’ve found an awesome deal and then shipping gets added to it and you end up spending lots again.
