Winner of Vintage Burda Magazine and Thoughts on Marfy

First, the winner of the vintage Burda Magazine is sarahlizsewstyle and I'll send an email to her shortly. Your magazine will be posted as soon as I get your address. Stay tuned for the next draw in February.

Marfy has some beautiful patterns. But, boy are they expensive at approximately $20 each (Cdn). They have just listed their newest catalogue on the McCalls Patterns Website. It is filled with patterns I would love to sew (like I don't have enough in my sewing queue... ). But if you buy the catalogue you get 20 free patterns. The catalogue is $35 and the shipping to Canada is $35 so $70/20 works out to $3.50 each pattern. sounds like a fantastic deal.

I know Marfy patterns don't come with instructions but I live in the online world...if I run into trouble I'll ask around online. Besides, I think I am an experienced enough sewist at this point that I should be able to tackle it.

Do we get to pick 20 patterns? Are they mailed separately? 
Anyone ever tried them?


  1. That's lovely, thank you -my email address is stylishsarah251@gmail.com. I understand you have been having trouble emailing me, so try that address. But I am worried that this will cost you too much to post to me here in Australia, so would you like this to go to someone nearer to you?

  2. P.S. I haven't tried Marfy either and have often wondered what the catalogue with patterns would be like.

  3. I haven't tried Marfy either. May post to PR to see if someone there knows? Sounds like a good deal, though.

  4. Congratulations, SarahLizSewStyle!

  5. On Marfy's website, it should show you the twenty patterns that come with that particular catalog. I haven't done it because so far, I haven't wanted to own at least eight of the patterns (my personal bar.) But now I'm headed over to the site to see if any speak to me.

  6. Also, it looks like ten and with a few exceptions, look like something Blanche Devareux would have worn so I shall have to pass again lol.
