Ok. Seriously Burda? WTF?? Are the archives going to be there? Will the previews be there? How come the Russian, German sites don’t have to do this?
I have no issue with Burdastyle.com. I like Burdamode.com for the previews and archives. I paticularly love it for the Community Foto Gallery. This has the potential to really tick me off.
Then again, all the things I like will still be available. Just not in English. Why isn’t there a Ravelry** for sewing??? Ergh.
Back to my weekend sewgasm.
** Edited to add that obviously I use and like other sewing sites including Stitcher’s Guild, BurdaStyle and PatternReview.com. But, Ravelry remains unmatched. I meet sewers who’ve never heard of PR. But, every knitter I know uses Ravelry.
