Burda Style – December 2012 issue

Another issue – not so impressed with it. But I did manage to find some patterns  that I liked. SNV33074


It might be that since I became a bit of a grumpy lady, I am much harder to please. But I am doing my best to become a merrier person. But I guess I need some help. I’ve already made some of my friends dig for jokes to text me to keep me smiling.

Impressive isn’t it, I only liked one pattern. Sad but true. So no more paying for new subscription.


I am actually thinking of maybe giving the Brazilian ‘Manequim’  a go. The patterns I have seen so far I just love them. So this might be a gift I will give myself. I will sure find an occasion to celebrate myself with a gift. 🙂 Well yes, it is in Portuguese, but that will not stop me form getting a magazine, will it?

What do you  think, about it? That’s if you want to venture on their website. One year subscription to UK is about £75.00. So once I save some money or give up on it, and just put it on ‘Lady Credit Card’ I will have another lovely magazine to wait every month.

I also considered Patrones – but it is to expensive. If you live in Spain you can have a subscription for like 40 Euros,  but to get it in UK it is over £100 which I don’t think is worth it.

How about you, what other pattern magazines do you buy?

  1. I’ve never subscribed to a magazine, and I only recently bought one issue of Ottobre Design Woman, but not a subscription. Sometimes I feel that they’re just churning out inadequate patterns because they have to fill an issue up.

  2. My Burda Style sub lapsed early last year and I didn’t bother renewing either. I agree with Salma that the seem to include inadequate patterns just to make up space. Then again if there are at least two patterns that I like then the issues is worth it for me – BS is $13 odd per issue here in NZ.

    I am thinking too about Manequim as have one issue I won ages ago and it as some lovely stuff in it. There are so many things in it I like, even if it means wrestling with language! I say go for it.
