Collecting New Buttons

My mom, who is also my Button Mentor, always checks out the new buttons in the fabric and craft stores when she’s nearby. In comparison to the beautiful picture buttons she collects, the new buttons seem so insubstantial and dare I say it – cheap! She gently reminds me, however, that we often overlook what we perceive as common today that we will appreciate in years to come.

Shirley Hutson has written about this exact topic in the latest issue of Bead & Button Magazine here, and points out that new buttons are not only affordable, they also are great buttons to entice Junior Button Collectors to jump in.
