Could you please tellme where you purchase your fabric from? I have been following your blog & I am very inspired to sew - but so far - I have been unable to locate the fabrics that you always mention.

I am in awe of your tenacity with your children. I do not have special needs children and I think seeing & reading about your trials and triumphs hiumbles me!

I have purchased 4 Ottobre magazines (not here yet) as I want to get back into sewing clothing for myself & for my grandson (due to make HIS entry into this world in December!!).

By the way - do you KNOW how to pronounce "Ottobre" in Finnish??? I am so curious, as I am sure I am not pronouncing it correctly.

Thanks, in advance, for your fabric supplier!

Aww- thanks for the kind words :-)Congrats on the new grandbaby!

I have heard Ottobre pronounced Ott-TOE-Bra and also Oh-TWO-bray. I personally say AH-Toe-Bray because I had to call it something so I took my best guess LOL.

If you've never used Otto before, let me warn you, it can be quite intimidating at first! Lots of lines to trace! A lot of people get their 1st one and panic. LOL It's really easy when you get used to it and it produces so much nicer clothes than the standard Big 3 pattern companies.

I get my (knit)fabrics from

and also from, a sewing forum that has a section to sell/buy fabrics. Come join us!

Oh ! Thank you. I will research them when I am home this evening.

I used to smock dresses for my girls when they were MUCH younger & the patterns I used were multisized - I never cut them - traced them on inexpensive interfacing.

Though - I'm sure that the "lines" are more than I am used too.
