Our auction to sell off my magazine stash of the past 20 years just ended at midnight. All the Inspirations magazine sold and several years worth of Ottobre. The unsold Ottobre have been re-listed. We have years 2010, 2009, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2002, and 2003 - my favorite.
The first issue of 2003 is the only one known to me that has patterns for 18" dolls - including the tote and doll carrier shown - as well as, a matching outfit for child and doll (see photo taken from issue 1/2003)
These are all auction style ending this time next week. Here's the link: click on that you only want to see auction style listings and only these magazines will come up. http://stores.ebay.com/thewoolythread

It looks like our rotary ruler is back! It is now called "Curve Runner". We will be stocking them when they are ready next month. Right now they are still in production.
You can pre-order and help fund this project on the kickstarter page or just let us know you want one and we'll send you one as soon as they are available in July.
Here's a link to the Kickstarter funding page with a video:
Our June newsletter is here!
Here's the direct link, but if you want to get it first, just let us know and we'll add you to our email list. We won't barrage you with numerous mailings - this is it - just once a month on the first.
In going through our inventory, I see that we have far too many copies of Inspirations #82 and #83, so through the end of this week-end, we are offering them for $12/each and that includes shipping to US addresses. Contact me about shipping internationally.
Just got some exciting info from Ottobre.... the children's summer issue will be out in early April and will have not only designs for children, but also a design for women and MEN! Can't wait to see that one! Here's a look at the cover.
It's never too early to pre-order, although we won't have it on our website until it is about here.
I've just lowered the prices for Ottobre subscriptions one again. I'm not sure why, but the Euro continues its decline against the US$, so the prices just keep going lower. A year ago a subscription to both the women's and children's issues was $89 - now it $73. That's quite a drop. Let's hope this continues....
