Buttons & Button Madness featured on See How We SewJWD Publishing | November 22, 2011
It’s button-time at See How We Sew!
One of our favorite blogs is the four-person blog See How We Sew written by four sewing enthusiasts who are also well positioned in the quilting world: Christie Batterman, Laura Nownes, Jennifer Rounds, and Darra Williamson. Each member posts twice a month, giving us wonderful posts twice a week—Tuesdays and Fridays. Each has her own style, personality, and interests. Thus each member’s posts have a different flavor from the others. If you have not had the opportunity to read their blog, scoot over there soon to read a wide variety of offerings. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
Darra’s most recent feature has to do with one of our newest pattern lines, Button Madness. Darra’s post Immerse Yourself in Button Madness not only features one of our designers Teresa Fields and her three new button patterns, but it gives some very interesting history about buttons and button collecting that you might find interesting.
Note: You will find the button bracelet, button fashion pin, and button napkin ring patterns listed on the JWD website under pattern designer Teresa Fields (currently listed as Quickie Chicks by Teresa Fields). Each button item has its own pattern page. Here’s a sample of one of our packaged Button Madness patterns:
BTW, we created this packaging, so shop owners can stick these patterns in a container right next to the button jar…..or at a convenient spot next to a button wall. These patterns are folded to 8 1/2″ high by 1 1/2″ wide. They are closed on their backside by stickers. Each pattern is filled with two pages of sequential instructions, several illustration photos, hints, and sample photos of the pattern items. If your store has buttons, we hope you’ll find this patterns very beneficial to your customers and you. You can purchase the patterns from your distributor or from us. Have fun playing with buttons.
