speedy mail order source

Jonagold | Posted in Patterns on

Any suggestions for a speedy mail order source for patterns?  I am not being successful in my search on-line.  I need  a Burda pattern.  I live in the hinterlands, am not going to the city soon, and need the pattern as soon as possible.  I am on the west coast.

Thank you.

    Hi,
    You might try ordering the Burda pattern online from http://www.burdafashion.com This site has many Burda patterns separated into categories such as children', men, and women. At the top of the page in the center you need to click on "En" if you want to read the text in English. The patterns arrive in about 10 days to two weeks. I have purchased a number of patterns from this site safely.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Jonagold!

    You may want to try this site:

    http://www.sewingpatterns.com/

    They stock the big 4 patterns plus a ton of independent patterns and they have Burda as well.  Generally I have gotten patterns within 7 days and that was when I lived in Europe - don't remember how fast they arrived within the US but I do remember it was speedy.  Their shipping rates aren't bad either.  They also have specials from time to time and if you sign up for e-mails you'll get notifications of them.

    You don't say if the pattern you are looking for is a currently available one or an old one. Either way I would always start with http://[email protected] - if she has your pattern you will get it very promptly.

    Hiya!

    I'm on the West Coast too. My local JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts mail orders Burda patterns - maybe one in your area does too? Or maybe you'll hit the jackpot and final a local JoAnn's carries them?

    Good luck! I know that "gotta have that pattern" pressure!

      I wanted a current pattern.  I called the two JoAnn fabric stores that are "near" and the pattern is out of stock.  I could not open the website that was suggested.  I bit the bullet and traced a pattern that was similar from my Burda Pattern Magazine stash.  The garment  is  completed except for buttons and buttonholes. 

      Thanks for the suggestions.
