I love sewing patterns from Burda Style Magazine. I love them so much, I hate to get rid of them. I currently have magazines from 2007. Storing the past issues has become a problem. I found a solution that works for me. In my "archives", I keep only the instruction pages and the pattern sheets from each issue. I don't have a problem throwing away the glossy magazine. I store these two items in a hanging file folder and store the file folders in a plastic file storage crate readily available at office supply stores for about $8. The folders are labeled with month and year. I can get about 3 years of magazines in one crate. The crate fits nicely in the bottom of my sewing room closet. I even put wheels on the bottom so it moves around. The wheels had to be ordered from the store's website.

I wish I had thought of this sooner. I gave away many back issues a few years ago. It hurt me to my heart. But now, I don't have to get rid of any more Burda back issues.

On this link: you can find most of the pictures from the magazines anyway (assuming the French version is the same basic magazine as everywhere else), although some of them do pop up blank. So you can still often find a photo to confirm the drawing.

But you have to be careful! I've just been keeping the instruction and pattern sheets for a while. Then the other day I wanted to make something but it had been a "sewing lesson" pattern in the full magazine. So I had no instructions! Lesson: tear out these pages too!

I do something similar for all magazine patterns. In a ring file I have a photocopy of the page with the drawings of styles, on which I mark which sheet and colour
