National Button Week: Sewing Buttons Collecting and Crafting

March 24th, 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Find out about the history and mystery of sewing buttons from around the world. There will be displays of buttons and button books. Every attendee will receive a sampler packet of buttons, all labeled for new learners to identify their buttons at home. A question and answer session will follow the program.

Presenter Mona Abrahamson has been learning about and avidly collecting sewing buttons for ten years. She is a member of the National Button Society, Iowa State Button Society (and editor of the ISBS bulletin), and Central Iowa Button Club. Note: For their safety, children should be accompanied by an adult.
