If I'm going to splurge on a back issue of Ottobre for kids, which is the best one?  I have an almost-2 boy and an almost-4 girl.  Thanks!

they're all great! I know that didn't help! I think it depends on where you live. I live in TN and the most useful issues to me are the spring and summer issues. you can look through all of their issues online ottobredesign.com and pick one that you like!

4/2004 has lots of great basics, like underwear leggings & stuff like that.  As for good clothes I really liked the 2/2005 had a good variety for both.  I also liked the 3/2007.

If you go to www.ottobredesign.com you can look at all the back issues & what they contain!!!

I don't know what prices you have been seeing, but one of my favorite sites to order from (especially for non subscribers) is www.sewzannesfabrics.com

Thank you!

It looks like there are a lot of patterns suitable for stretch knit fabrics.  Do you think a subscription would be wasted on someone who doesn't have a serger?

I was just looking at the magazine and I love love love their clothes.  Question... how hard are the patterns to follow.  I am a very novice sewer- just learned how to turn the sewing machine on a couple of months ago!!!

You don't have to have a serger to sew knits!!!!!!  Yes it works better, but not required.

I don't think it would be a waste at all.  Though most people find you only need 1 years subscription to get a good 'base' of magazines & then they just buy the ones that are their favorites.

Though its more up front its MUCH cheaper in the long run & then you can get back issues for cheap.  I think that I paid $85 for my one year... I get all 4 kiddo mags, 2 womens mags & got 1 free back issue.  Most places with the shipping for one back issue is about $18 or more.

So I would say definitely worth it!  Though there are a lot of knits there are also TONS of wovens.

I haven't tried the Ottobre patterns yet, but am trying to talk myself into buying a copy of the 1/2007 magazine.  It has a ton of really cute boy things in it.  I have sewed for my girls, but haven't done anything for the boy yet.  When I talk myself into spending $20 for a magazine, that's going to be it.  :-)

Try thinking of it as a "book" rather than a "magazine" and you'll have yourself convinced! (I recently bought the current Spring edition and just traced off my first pattern last night!) :-)

I just ordered Spring 08.  It looks  adorable.  But I think it is what looks best to you.  I checked them all out online at the ottobre website.
