      I wish I had read the notes here before takes out a subscription. I find out that I have to pay for the designs shown in the magazine but not printed on the pull out sheets. I wouldn’t have spent the money on the magazine. I would have just gone to the site and downloaded the one pattern. I feel cheated.

      I am very upset about discovering that not all the digital patterns are free (even though they were in the first issue). If it was some sort of promotion on the first issue, Burdastyle should have made that clear. I will not be renewing my subscription again.

      Oh wow… I’ve subscribed to Burda before and was so excited about this US version. I can’t believe we get shafted on the patterns like this.

      I certainly wont be resubscribing if this is the model going to be followed. I also feel misled, it should’ve been clearly stated only half of the patterns were included in our subscriptions.

      I have to say I’m pretty upset about this digital download situation as well. I signed up for a full subscription after the winter issue came out. I was really excited to have access to all of the patterns in the issue. Now all of a sudden in the Spring issue – only some of the patterns are available for free. Unfortunately for me I already signed up for a subscription after I believe I was a bit misled. Please change this burda US!! Don’t alienate your customers from the get go.

      I also bought the Spring 2014 issue lured into thinking by the cover, editor’s notes and even patterns instructions sheet that all the patterns were free, just a difference by having an insert sheet, vs. downloadable patterns. I even wrote a post on my blog describing as such. How extremely disappointing to find out more than half of the patterns featured in the magazine are not free at all. I feel, as your consumer, I have been deliberately mislead. As excited as I was to purchase the Spring 2014 magazine, I am profoundly disappointed to realize this deception.

      Here is how the BURDASTYLE Spring issue was advertised: See for yourself here: http://bit.ly/1dFrWxV (BurdaStyle.com)

      Here is the text of the email I received from Newsletter@burdastyle.com on Feb 21, 2014 promoting the Spring issue. Too bad I can’t include all the large, bold fonts here Burda uses for effect, but note these two particular statements: "40+ Full Size Patterns to Welcome a New Season! " and “..you’ll find the latest products..plus runway inspirations and 43 original BurdaStyle designs!” (Quoted from Denise Wild, Editorial Director, BurdaStyle US. Wouldn’t you say that sounds rather official?

      Now tell me how that can be interpreted any other way than ‘all patterns included’. Here is the text of the email:

      For People Who Sew

      40+ Full Size Patterns to Welcome a New Season!

      BUY NOW BurdaStyle Spring 2014

      “Spring’s the season for warm thoughts, new beginnings, and a focus on what matters. Here at BurdaStyle, it’s sewing that brings us joy and makes us giddy, and in this issue, fabric gets top priority! If you’re a sewer, chances are you have a strong love affair with fabric. The colors, the prints, the feel, the drape. We’re dedicating this entire issue to fabric, the foundation of sewing and fashion. In your hands, you’ll find the latest products with a fabric focus, a guide to choosing, buying, and caring for fabric, a sewing machine cheat-sheet for working with various fabrics, plus runway inspirations and 43 original BurdaStyle designs!” – Denise Wild, Editorial Director, BurdaStyle US

      Well, I for one won’t be buying this version of the magazine again. Not until it includes FREE downloads like the regular version does. Totally ridiculous to make us pay for half the patterns shown in the magazine. Its like an expensive catalog with some freebies. Total bait and switch tactic since the first issue had free download codes. I hope BurdaStyle realizes it’s going to lose a ton of customers if they continue pulling this crap. I’m glad i didn’t subscribe or i would be out even more money for patterns that have already been released in precious magazines.

      I have been a Burda fan for some years, and still am. I live in the US and have always wanted to have easy access to the English translated versions (i.e. in big box stores like Joanns, etc). Then you guys released a US version! But it has been such a disappointment overall. It feel like you’ve really missed the mark here. I feel like the folks who this version caters to are not going to become invested in the Burda brand… it’s a taste test (a somewhat sour one, as many folks seem to feel) and they are quickly disappointed by so many things (old patterns we already have, paying many$$$ extra just to get the patterns actually int the magazine), then they will just move on. The US has a massive sewing market, it’s too bad Burda isn’t taking the opportunity to really clench it. Really… REALLY what I feel Burda needed to do was just put the already existing monthly English translated version on our stores shelves INSTEAD of doing this new US version that’s not working out. Yes, it would be nice to have a better translated version, actually translated by native US speakers and vocabulary that reflects our culture more closely, but I’d MUCH MUCH rather have a (sometimes silly :) British translation with the current, new patterns that Europe has access to. Burda has now created a poor reputation for the US market… not the best marketing move.

      But please know I am still a fan, am a subscriber to the monthly English translated version, but will never buy the US version in the state that it’s in. But I am curious to see where this version goes in time. I only wish the very best of luck to you guys, I am routing for you!!! :)

        The international Burda magazine will not translate to the US version that many of the readers here and places like PatternReview want.To keep the original designs and then expand on the instructions as well as ill conceived local content will need a 200 page magazine that will be too expensive to sell.

        Burda magazines has a lot to offer , but the incessant whining about the styles, fashion spread, translation , and sewing instructions led to the ill judged ’American" version
        Look up Verena knitting magazine and see what happened when they tried to produce “US” version

      Has anyone else noticed that this is the same collection they released in the April 2013 UK edition? I was so confused when I saw this advertised on Interweave last month that I went back to my eBay history and saw that I’d bought it last fall. It’s like this one: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Burda-Style-pattern-magazine-4-2013-/281176024422?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item417765a566&_uhb=1

      I don’t know, maybe there are different patterns – it’s impossible to tell from this web site.

      I completely agree with so many posts here – I am very DISAPPOINTED in Burda’s bait-and-switch tactics that they used to get subscribers. After seeing the winter issue I decided to subscribe based mainly on the downloadable patterns. Nowhere in the magazine was it clear (or stated at all?) that these downloads were free only for the first issue. Sleazy tactic. Totally misleading. Wasted time trying to figure out how to get the downloadable patterns that I thought were free because of the last issue. Lost another customer over the way this was done. I will only consider coming back if Burda fixes this wide-spread disappointment by either giving subscribers free downloadable patterns from this issue or making future issues inline with the Winter 2014 issue (downloads included with subscription price). Feels like a big scam – not cool.

        I, too, was shocked to find out we have to pay for the extra patterns. That’s not the case with the regular Burda magazine, so why price gouge us here? I don’t understand the motivation or plan they have for this release. I paid $15 for it, too… $2 more when I bought it through the interweave store online, which pisses me off. A magazine should be a set price. Came here to find out what was up with having to pay for the other patterns shown and here is the download for less money. What is that about?

      I’m checking in with the same dissatisfaction and disgust as the others here. I am also furious about having wasted several hours of my time trying to find out what the problem was with the downloads not coming up free. and then BurdaStyle not being forthright, and not addressing the change at all not replying to forum posts where others were puzzling with the same! Bad, bad, bad!!! Thanks for misleading us and wasting our time. This isn’t the only forum where the fur is flying about this. It has just taken a few weeks for readers to figure out what has happened with the SPRING issue. Any comments from the moderator?

      Exceptionally disappointed at the ‘bait and switch’ approach here; you have an excellent opportunity to develop a loyal following in the US, which will only be damaged by doing this. Seems pointless not having to cover the (probably very minimal) cost per digital pattern download, if you have no subscription revenues.

      Love your magazine. I waited anxiously for it to hit the stands. More than 3 trips to joann. Imagine my disappointment when the 23 additional styles to download are really a front cover misrepresentation. Clearly this is a bait and switch tactic as I don’t believe there was anything in the first issue to indicate that was a premier offer only. Needless to say I will not purchase magazine in future. Which is a shame. It could have been a long term quarterly love affair to remember!

      I purchased the digital edition with huge excitement. At nearly twice the price of the price of the print magazine, I expected new designs. It is merely a new format for old patterns from the print magazine. As a print subscriber for the past few years, I already have all of these.

      Nowhere in the description does it tell you that these are old patterns. It doesn’t tell you that they’re new ones either, I guess, so the fault is mine for assuming.

      What a letdown! I feel like I’ve been had, and I’ve been a loyal follower for years.

      Badly done, BurdaStyle. Two thumbs down!

December (also no communication from Burda as to delivery schedule or anything). Haven’t gotten the Spring issue yet either. All magazines I subscribe to deliver a current month issues at least 2 weeks in advance. Sometimes I get an August issue in June. Not Burda. Weird.

      WARNING! DOES NOT include the downloadable patterns! Several of us have checked with BurdaStyle now and the downloadable patterns are not included with the digital version of the magazine even though the cover clearly says “+23 more styles to download”. The magazine only has updated instructions to the downloable patterns and you still have to pay to buy each pattern with no discount. I have no idea whether the hard copy includes the downloadable patterns. If you find out, please let us know.

      I am really disappointed that the downloadable patterns are not part of the issue. Why did you put them on the cover and include directions if they are not part of the content? It makes no sense, and it makes it look like there was a last minute decision to sell the additional content instead of provide it with the magazine. I personally don’t like sewing off patterns that include seam allowance, so the patterns in the insert are not my first choice. I would not have bought this if I had known how much it differed from the last issue….very lame. Any way I can get my money back?

        Hi Lalita,

        We included free downloads as part of our premier launch issue (our Winter 2014 issue of the magazine). The magazine now continues to have full-size inserts for 20 of the patterns within the magazine, and the remaining patterns are available as paid downloads here on BurdaStyle.com. For each garment in the magazine, we’ve also fleshed-out and detailed the instructions even more (including those that can be downloaded on the website).

      I figured out how to get the pattern inserts. There’s a link called “Print Pattern at Home” in your Pattern Library. The “Get Instructions” link only get’s you the magazine content.

      I still can’t get the downloadable patterns. The links in the magazine take me to the pages where you pay for the pattern. Is there a discount code to use at check-out that I just missed in reading through the issue? The Winter issue had one page where you could get all the downloadable patterns in one place.
