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 $73. That's quite a drop. Let's hope this continues....
Our March newsletter is out. For some reason - unbeknownst to me - the graphics and layout come out much better when sent to you directly, rather than having you get it on the website, but here it is.....
Have you checked out the fabrics available on Ottobre's website lately? With the US$ at an 11-year high against the Euro, the prices are more reasonable than they've been in more than a decade. Here's a link to their fabric page...with literally hundred of fabrics.
Great news about Ottobre prices! Ottobre had a price increase the first of the year, but because of the continuing decline in the value of the Euro against the US$, we were able to LOWER our prices for the magazine! The prices are lower than they were this time last year by about 14%. All this just in time for the newest issue to come out. I'm expecting my shipment any day now. Our website has already been updated with new lower prices.
Here's a short video showing all the designs in this newest issue:
Something fun for today....

Someone called yesterday requesting an e-gift certificate, so a new option is born now available!
