Details about making buttons, from Barb:

These nosegay buttons represent just one design of the 5 button types I will offer at the ATASDA mini workshop.  These were the very first ones I made way back in 1980 and I have since made and sold 100’s.

I will supply packs for the workshop containing rings etc for $2 each if student require them.

Students should bring

Perle cotton No. 5 in at least 2 colours.  Do not buy if not in your stash, I have plenty to share.

Tapestry hand sewing needles No 20 or 22.

Small scissors

Notebook.

Students can make 1 or 5 buttons and I will have notes to share.  Whilst they are working, I will give them a potted history of the buttons.  I presented a paper on the buttons at the National Silk Museum in Hangzhou China and have had 1400 hits on my article on Acadaemia.com.  Very proud of this recognition.

I will have extra rings for purchase if needed.

I have twice taught the button workshop at Fibre Forum over 5 days, once one gets hooked on the buttons, it is compulsive.
