Our favorite fabric website is by far Bunte Fabrics. They import European fabrics ideally suited to children's clothing. Many of them are used in the Ottobre Design magazine. I bring this up now, because they are celebrating their first anniversary of being in business and are offering a free yard of fabric with a purchase of $50. There's more to the sale, so if you are interested, check out the details on their blog and tell them we sent you. Blog: www.colorinyourlife.blogspot.com Website: www.buntefabrics.com

The US Dollar has continued its uphill climb against the Euro, so we are thrilled to once again be able to reduce the prices of Ottobre Design magazines. The prices are in the process of being updated on our website. In the meantime here are the new prices....
a 6-issue subscription is now $72 a 4-issue subscription is now $54 a 2-issue woman's only sub is $22 any single issue is $17
As always, these prices include shipping. If you want to purchase something before the prices get changed on our website, just mention the blog announcement and we'll make the adjustment.
No telling what the next weeks will bring. The prices could continue to drop or they may go up again. It is all based on the current Euro/US Dollar exchange rate. We change our prices as the exchange rate changes. Stayed tuned for any changes.
