Lots of button collectors sew, or used to sew, and I am no different. I watch Project Runway, the show where clothing designers are given tasks and a limited amount of time to produce a garment. Every week the designers go to a fabric store in New York called Mood to purchase the fabrics, trims, notions and BUTTONS for their designs. One of the highlights of the show for me is Tim Gunn, the designers’ mentor, framed against the button wall, giving instructions to the designers.
Someday I’ll go to Mood and see that wall! Want to come along?
