SUMMARY: This is another multidiscipline needlecraft magazine along the lines of "Needlecraft for Today" and "Workbasket". It provides very stylish and great assortment of patterns, including soft toys and tatting. Instructions aren't broken down very well and are a bit crowded - but then they're packing a whole lot of patterns into just 39 pages and a very large insert pattern sheet with both sides printed with overlapping pattern pieces. There is nothing "Quick & Easy" about this magazine, thank goodness. The assortment has both character and style. I've learned to equate "Quick & Easy" with "Generic & Boring". I like projects that when I'm done with, will be something I'm proud to use. "Burda Anna" certainly succeeds in providing that. I've looked in vain for years for a big run of this title either here in the US or in Canada. No luck yet, but I keep looking. Anyone with more information about this publication, or has issues to donate or sell, can contact me through My Contact Page.
