    oh My Dear Friend Ralf, I am deeply appreciated to you and your family. Your message touches our heart. We got energy. that reminds me, The rescue team in Germany came to Japan today! my eyes began to water. Many country rescue team came to help from the far-off land. and Many country people pray for Japan. We are thankful to many people of the world. I will also help for the victim. Never give up!!!

    I was asked last night to help design and create a Halloween costume for this coming year. It seems fairly straight forward and am glad I have a lot of time to make it. I was just wondering, since you are such a fabulous designer and seamstress, that if I come across a problem or have a question on how to do something, if you would mind if I asked for your help? You have become my inspiration here and am so glad to have “met” you through Burdastyle. I can not wait to see what you and your new “baby” create in the weeks and months to come. Happy Sewing!!!

    Ralf….thanks for your lovely comment on back wrap dress….I have to confess that this is a bit of a cheat…as this fabric has a very large 2 way stretch….works great for fit :)

    Hallo Ralf, ich bin ja ganz hin und weg von dem Stoff, den Du für Pam’s Kleid verwendet hast. Darf ich fragen wo Du den her hast? Gab’s den evtl. auch in braun?

    Hi Ralf! Thank you for the sweet comment! Your husband’s linen pants are so neat! I bought linen too for my husband’s pants, but haven’t started it yet, it’ll be my first time sewing men’s pants. I hope it’ll be as good as yours! :)

    you make a lot of nice things, and you only started three years ago with sewing? Congratulations! Just like you I grew up with my mum’s Burda magazine’s. In the seventies those magazines where so glamourous!

    Hey Ralf,

    I know it seems like we are getting to be good friends! At least something good is coming out of all of this computer bug stuff!

    I have sent in another work order for your studio photos. I am not sure what the status of all of this is just yet but am sure they will let me know soon. It is Area 51 that works on our technical issues, so there is a lot of going back and forth to see where things are at. Yes, Area 51 is the real name! haha

    By the way, I love your Sherlock Holmes and luggage piece creations! Very nice! You are always so fast with your sewing and I can’t imagine how you do that! I look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Hey Ralf, I will resend your account to the techs. Some of the accounts were fixed overall with the recent maintenance, so I’m glad you let me know that yours is not fully restored. I think we are finally getting to the bottom of this mean little bug! Please let me know on Monday or Tuesday if your Studio has been fixed.

    Wishing you the best!

    Hello Ralf Schmnitz, I just wanted to let you know that your issue with your project photos missing was sent in to the tech’s earlier and they should be working on it now. Hopefully it will be fixed soon because you have some pretty great creations that I would like for us all to enjoy!

    Anyway, happy sewing from your friendly burdastyle moderator!
