While sewing patterns and instructions form the core content of the OTTOBRE magazine, we also try to make the layout and illustration as stimulating and captivating as possible. We hope that, in addition to adults, children also find the magazine interesting to browse through. Our family business has managed to build a network of talented, creative people from all over the world to cooperate with.
In the latest issues we have made use of two wonderful Scandinavian illustrators. Vibeke Høie comes from Norway and lives with her family in the small town of Sandnes. Vibeke illustrated the “Gardening with Friends” theme for issue 1/2009. You can take a look at her other works on her website. Our cooperation with Vibeke will continue.
Terese Bast, visual artist and mother, belongs to the Swedish-speaking minority in Finland. She and her family live in Jakobstad on the west coast of Finland. Terese created the lovely illustration for the baby theme in issue 3/2009. You’ll find more works by Terese here. You’ll also find charming postcards, prints and pins at Terese’s Etsy webshop.
