Early Renewals

Just got a note from Ottobre that several subscribers have asked if they can renew early. The answer is a resounding "YES"!
Today subscription rates are the lowest they have been in 4 years, due to the great exchange rate with the Euro we have right now. Now is the time to jump in and subscribe or renew whether you are due to renew now or not. Lock in these rates while we have them.

Four-Year Low

Just heard on the news this morning that the Euro is at its lowest level against the US Dollar in 4 years! That means Ottobre prices are at their lowest, as well. We are trying to keep up with the exchange rate by lowering our prices on the website as they occur. They were just update again yesterday. No better time to order or renew. Now if the Australian dollar would do the same, we could lower those prices, too. I'll keep checking both currencies and let you know as changes occur.

More Lower Prices

The Euro just keeps dropping, so our prices for Ottobre are once again down. The exchange was 1.51 US Dollars for one Euro on December 3rd. Now it 1.24 US Dollars for one Euro. This is good news on both sides - Ottobre sells more magazines and you get a lower price. How long will this continue?? We'll see.....

Today we received 3 boxes of magazines and books from Country Bumpkin.

We now have Inspirations 65 and 66, as well as, 2 copies of Embroidered Flowers for Elizabeth. There is even one copy of More Beautiful Embroidered Blankets.

We won't be ordering more of any of these publications, so if you want one, let us know. Most are not on our website, since we don't expect them to last long.
