I just had to share some of the buttons members of my guild ogled the other night during a presentation by a member of our local button club. Who knew the rules of the button police were even stricter than those of the quilt police?
If you’re interested creating a button collection, as opposed to having a tin of jumbled old buttons, try some of these websites: National Button Society, antique and vintage button descriptions, Buttons in Time. Some of these sites have many links to other, more specialized sites. And there’s probably a button society in your area.
