The October BurdaStyle Magazine is here! I wasn’t overly excited by the early preview images, but the full preview of this issue has completely won me over. There’s a lot of good stuff to check out, so let’s dive in! Of course we have to start off with the coats and jackets this month: Love … More BurdaStyle Magazine October 2019
The year feels like it is flying by too fast, but the September Burda is already here! Personally, I don’t think I’m quite as excited as I was for August, but, this is a pretty great issue too! It’s an especially good selection of Burda Plus patterns this month, which is really exciting. There’s lots … More September 2019 BurdaStyle Magazine
Normally when the new Burda catalog comes out it’s a day of excitement and confetti around here, but this release has been a bit disappointing. Not because the designs are bad, but because the majority are styles we’ve already had in the magazines. Which means there really isn’t a lot I’m wanting to add to … More Burda Catalog Patterns Fall/Winter 2019
The new distributors who are taking over for GLP have sent out a letter detailing which of the former GLP offered magazines they have or will be distributing in the coming months: Hopefully by now everyone who had a Burda subscription with GLP has received their magazines, but in case you haven’t there is contact … More Burda Distribution Updated Update!
At this point the August Burda is probably old news to most people (my copy even arrived already!), but it’s such a good issue I really wanted to give it the full post that it deserves. I’m so excited for fall fashions this year! It’s the start of Burda’s fall offerings, so of course the … More August 2019 BurdaStyle Magazine
I first wrote about the close of GLP News here, and posted an update here; but this past week Roltek/Sunrise News has sent out the June Burda issues that had apparently been transferred from the old GLP subscriptions. This is great news! It means nobody missed out on the June issue, and that normal services … More BurdaStyle US Distribution: Updated Update to the Update
Happily, unlike last month, it seems the accessibility of Burda will be a bit more predictable. If you aren’t sure what I’m referring to, you can check out my news posts about the closing of GLP here, and the update here. Following various social media accounts it seems as though some people have started to … More July 2019 BurdaStyle Magazine
In light of yesterday’s news about GLP’s closing, this magazine review might feel a tad bittersweet (or possibly provocatively maddening), but for all of my non-US readers I will try to keep this as tonally normal as possible. I must admit that I’m really excited about this issue; I’m just hoping that it will actually … More June 2019 BurdaStyle Magazine
UPDATE: I’ve posted an update post here. I’d recommend reading it in addition to this post if you are looking for more information about what’s up with GLP News and what’ happening to BurdaStyle subscriptions in the US. Now, on to the original post… Ok, so for those of you who have long followed this … More Burda PSA: Disaster Strikes! GLP News Has Died
Hard to believe, but 10 years ago I bought a sewing machine off of Amazon… and life hasn’t been the same since. Looking back on my sewing journey, it has been an interesting road, and one that I know still has a long way to go. I wrote about why I started sewing way back … More 10 Year Sewiversary!
