November 16th is
National Button Day.
I did not know this interesting tidbit of information. It was established in 1938 by
The National Button Society
to celebrate those who love to collect or craft with buttons.
Is there seriously a day for just about anything?
Like most sewers, I have my own stash of buttons.
(I never considered it a collection)
I often can’t resist when I see buttons at a yard sale or a deal at my local fabric store. I have separated them by color and even occasionally use some of them. I have tossed them all into a big jar and used them as a game for a baby shower or birthday party-you know, guess how many buttons are in the jar and win a prize…
I may have even used some in a craft project.
Collect them, no…
but come to think of it…it might be fun!
