Vintage Buttons

Vintage buttons and assorted trims were a hot item at Quilt Market in Houston! There were several vendors selling them and of course I had to buy just a few. I will have some of my treasures for sale at the CreativFestival in Toronto this week (booth 509). The show starts on Friday and runs until Sunday.

Buttons are being used as embellishments, to make jewellery of all kinds and are being combined to make totally new buttons. Mix and match seems to be the way to go!

Here are a few pictures from the vintage button vendors' booths in Houston.

Have a great time at the Festival Jean. I'm fading fast here in Houston. Today was the very long day - Machine Quilter's Forum, Anniversary luncheon, Mixed Media Sampler, Meet the Teacher Lecture, book signing at QuiltHaus. Surprised I can still type!!

Will give a full 'report' on my blog when I get home.
