Making Buttons

imageI have been busy getting ready for the handmade market at Stalybridge on Saturday , sewing on my buttons ready to sell. I will also be making some of these available to buy on line in my shop too.

On Sunday I had a stall at the W.I Rag Market, it is just for materials, for all sorts of crafts and sewing and knitting. I took along my ceramic buttons to sell. We had a lovely day, met lots of new people and sold lots of buttons!
I forgot to take my new business cards (der!) as people were asking if I sold my buttons on line. Yes I do and in the next couple of weeks I will be adding more of my range of new buttons to my shop.

The Button Project

The Button Project exhibition is being held at the Macclesfield Silk Museum and runs until early August.There are nearly 300 buttons from designers and makers from all over the UK and the States. All the buttons are for sale as well.I made an arty button from porcelain that was glazed and had a final lustre finish to it. It was a fish leaping in the water, I tried to make it look like it had movement and splashing.It is No 8 in the exhibition if you go ( unfortunately it has been placed on the lower display of buttons and I don’t think you get to see its best view).
