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.
Just had to share this sweet note I received from a customer who just bought our 'Wooly Toes' product:
"I have awful hammertoes, and my feet are always killing me when I have to wear pumps or other "adult" shoes. In winter, my feet are freezing. YOU have solved both problems in a way that is affordable and accessible!"
If you read our newsletter, you saw that we are in the midst of our 'Deal of the Week' which ends on Friday, Nov 8th - buy 3 rolls of Swedish tracing paper and get the 4th free - all sent priority mail, but be sure to mention the deal to get it.
Getting ready to send out our November 1st email and wanted to invite you to subscribe. Our newsletter is ONLY sent out on the 1st of every month and we never release your contact info to anyone.
If you'd like to get our newsletter sent directly to your inbox, just let us know - if not, we'll post a link to it here early in the month.
Either way, stay tuned.....
If you have ever gone to our 'deep discounts' page on our website, you know we have some great deals on some of the older back issues of Inspirations magazine. This time we managed to find a few copies of issue 58. If you are interested, check it out on our website: www.woolythread.com
Here's a little more about you'll find in this soon-to-be-released winter issue.
The issues with underwear are always very popular and this is one of those issues.
When winter winds are blowing, wool keeps you nice and warm! Lovely jackets sewn from wool knits and fuzzy faux fur, and an ultra-warm fleece hoodie. Comfortable pants and tops plus special-occasion dresses for young children. A much-requested lovely tulle skirt.
Baby clothes in the casual, uncomplicated Scandinavian style. A jersey dress, a bodysuit and a coverall made with colorful organic-cotton knits and including sizes for newborns. Pants, a bonnet hat and a sleep sack sewn from the season's softest sweatshirt knits.
JUST A LITTLE SMARTER THAN CASUAL
Older children dress up for special occasions in a casual style. A bold cardigan and a denim shirt for boys. A frilled top, a skirt, a blazer and a patchwork jersey dress for girls.
WAKE UP BEFORE YOU GO!
Comfortable underwear from soft organic-cotton jersey, including long johns, leggings, T-shirts, camisoles and panties. Sizes for all children, ranging from toddlers to teenagers. Sizes 92-170 cm
Based on an article from the front page of today's NY Times, the American textile industry is coming back....
Along with our shipment of Inspirations #79 came a few copies of one of the very earliest issues of Inspirations magazine - issue #4 from 1994. They are brand new and have never been used. I only have a few, so if you want one, let me know. I'm offering them here and on our Facebook page first, so they aren't on our website. Price $15./each.
