Did you know that November 16th is National Button Day? It's one of those days created to raise awareness of something (usually a product!) and most started in the US. But for button makers and collectors, what a great day really.
For us, it's going to be a busy day. We've got a Create & Craft TV show on the day at 11am. As we are usually in a weekend slot, being in the studio on a weekday will be really interesting for us!
We are launching two new kits - button bracelets. Both kits will focus on ring button designs, and include everything you need. Hopefully you'll be able to tune in. One is floral themed, the other nautical.
Speaking of buttons, today is day 315 of my 'One Button a Day' challenge. I've just had a little feature in this month's Sew magazine. Thank you so much to those of you who are following and commenting. It keeps me going!
And another nice bit of news - we now have a small selection of pure silk chenille thread and au ver a soie silk creative packs (with pure silk ribbon), in our shop. Gorgeous stuff, I promise you. Click here to see them.
Keep warm - the weather is changing!
