We are super excited to announce that we are the distributors for these amazing curved rulers. They are ideally suited for pattern drafting and adding seam allowances. The ones shown are 5/8" width, but 3/8" inch ones are due in the next few days. Also available are these rulers in metric measurements.
Ottobre Woman will be out soon... here's a little more of what you'll find in this upcoming issue in addition to the trenchcoat we posted recently. Although it isn't on our website yet, it is never too early to pre-order. Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

My shipment of Ottobre's newest issue - the children's spring issue - just arrived. If you pre-ordered a single issue, it will be in the mail tomorrow. Photos show both the front cover (girl) and back covers (baby).
Well, I managed to get another great deal on a back issue of Inspirations magazine. This is issue #51 with an extra removeable booklet attached to the front called "World's Most Beautiful Needlework Shops". Lots of great projects in this issue.
It is on our 'deep discount' page if you want to take a look.
I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas!
This year I decided to try to take the commercialism out of our Christmas here at The Wooly Thread. There weren't any Christmas specials, discounts, or countdowns. There were no urgent emails offering great deals. No daily reminders of just so many days left until Christmas.
The results.......we've had our best December ever and just about the best month of the year, so a big THANK YOU to all of you who support us. I appreciate you all so much and look forward to another great year with you in 2014.
Merry Christmas and God bless you. Over and out!
The next issue of Ottobre will be released in mid-January. Here is a look at some of what you'll see.....
Please remember that prices are going up on the first of the year, so if you want this issue or a subscription, let us know before the end of the year.
It seems I've neglected to mention here that we recently opened an Etsy shop. There are just a few items so far. Some you have seen before on our website, but others are brand new and have never been listed. If you are interested, take a look:
On a somewhat less cheery note :( .... Ottobre has just announced that they will implement a price increase starting January 1st. It will come to about 9.6% more than the current prices. So, if you'd like to renew - even if you are not quite yet due to renew - you may do so before the end of the year and lock in the current price. More details will be in our next newsletter.
