I was wondering if anyone has taken a BurdaStyle Webinar. They have some interesting topics, like creating your own sloper and pattern grading. If anyone has experience with these online classes, I'd love to hear about them. Thank you!

Bumping to the top.

I cant believe NOT one single person has tried one. I am also dying to try some but wonder about the information they give if good or not so much.......

Honestly, I receive email invitations to these classes at Burda a lot but haven't tried them. The reason - I haven't found any useful enough to spend $ on.

So.... As for experience in the classes? I can't help there.

Overall, personally, I'm not that enthusiastic about their patterns to spend that amount of $ on the classes. If I were to take a class it would be from PR or craftsy, probably, since I find those two resources more dependable and flexible with design elements.

If you decide to do the class, do let us know how it worked out for you....

I just took their Tailoring Techniques webinar, and I was disappointed by it. I am trying to expand my sewing abilities so that what I make does not look frumpy and home-made. I'm not sure what I was expecting to learn, but I really did not learn much from this. I should have spent my money in a different way. I am hoping that others who have taken a webinar and have had a positive experience will post their experience. I won't do a review because I do not want to cast a shadow on what could be a positive exercise, and I do not know enough (yet) to be able to adequately critique it. Carolyn

I just took a webinar class and was disappointed as well. The video portion of the class was only the slides from the instructors lecture which was accompanied by the audio of the instructor recorded during the original webinar. I wish that there was a place to read and write reviews about each class so I could have made a better decision about spending the money on one.
