Before I go I did want to mention something because I’ve been quite consistent in 2019 and I managed to do browse throughs and previews every single month which I’m really really proud of in terms of being able to do that. I’ve also been interacting with a lot more people from around the world because, of course the pleasure of sewing with BURDA is that it is translated into 17 different languages and so it is a bit more international and you know with the powers of Google Translate I’ve been able to communicate even with people who don’t speak English using Google Translate. But what I have noticed is that for some people who have been sewing with BURDA for a really really long time there’s been a consistent criticism that has been leveled at the current BURDA Style and that seems to be that Burda that has gone past its golden age and that the magazines that are being produced now are nowhere near as good as the old magazines. And me being the curious person that I am I’ve started looking at vintage Burda magazines. Now it’s kind of a bit hard to actually find them because the only place that you’re limited to is second-hand selling sites like eBay or Etsy and I found that some of these places can be incredibly expensive so but I’m keeping an eye out . So as a result of that over the last month or so I have been trying to find some vintage Burda magazines and I have asked some of the critics of modern day BURda which eras I should be looking at trying out. Which eras were considered to be the “Golden Age”, “the best” because obviously for me I’m new to sewing with Burda relatively speaking. You know I only discovered Burda when I started sewing about six years ago so you know for me Burdastyle is something that is still new and I’ve only had access to Burda in the last six years or so and when I compare the benefits that I get from these Burda style magazines versus say sewing with your big four patterns companies I definitely prefer Burda and that’s because of the sizing and the drafting I find that their sizing and their drafting is a lot more accurate and I do find that their styles and designs are a little bit more forward compared to say your other big four sewing pattern companies so yes so that’s something else that you can expect in 2020 I’m gonna be dipping my toes into sewing with a vintage Burda and I kind of want to explore that a bit and see what the big fuss is about about older Burdastyles. I don’t know for all the Burda because I wasn’t there in the eighties when I was there in the 80s but I was just a little kid so yeah so do Remember to subscribe if you want to follow along in this vintage Burda journey as well and thank you so much for watching so until I see you next time guys happy sewing! Bye!
