Can anyone recommend a place to browse through the Burda envelope pattern catalog?

The Simplicity site is just too too too slow. I know I can look at them here, but the photos are blurry and you can't actually tell what the pattern is until you click on it.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I browse the "live" Burda catalog at Exquisite Fabrics in Culpeper, VA, if that helps you. I can't tell where you are.

I was going to recommend the simplicity site because I find it easier to use than the German Burda site. But the German Burda site should work, or the French one, or....

WOW. The Simplicity site really is having problems tonight. Definitely try the German Burda site.

I usually go to sewingpatterns.com. I don't necessarily buy the patterns from them but it's an quick and easy way to view all patterns from all companies. You can see pattern front and back.

The Simplicity website has problems all the time. I think they have the same vendor or webmaster as the healthcare site. I finally stopped using them altogether. Too slow and cumbersome and down all the time.

This was the cutest reply. I should have specified I was looking for an online option. Thanks for making me smile. :)

Thanks for all ideas. I will check them out. :)

I emailed Simplicity again about their nightmarishly slow website.

Simplicity/Burda is always incredibly slow on weekends. I think the last one out of the office on Friday pulls the plug.

Laura, this is a wonderful link. Thanks for posting it. I haven't been to Burda's site in a long time and this is just like looking thru the catalog. They have done a wonderful job of making this pleasant. If only Simplicity could get their website together and make it this nice.
