Do you, like me, have a button collection? I'm just a novice, collecting for only 15 years or so, with only about 300 buttons.
Until I heard about this holiday, I thought I was alone in my fascination with buttons. I love the colors, and designs, but mostly I love the memories I have of sewing with my mother and playing with all her extra buttons.
There are even many groups that meet to talk about their buttons. I am now considering becoming a member of The Button Society.
