EVENTS

There are currently no events planned.

The North Carolina State Button Society (NCSBS) welcomes new members.

Regional clubs are the Eastern, Central and Western chapters. The NCSBS was formed to encourage and promote interest in collecting buttons and related items for educational and historical purposes and for personal enjoyment. Our goal is to preserve for future generations all that is beautiful, artistic and historical in buttons, in cooperation with the National Button Society.

For more information, contact President Cathy Buresch by email at cathybnc@yahoo.com.

    • Hi Susan,

      The show is in the same location as it has been for the past several years. It is the previous Holiday Inn, which is now called “The Inn at Greensboro” and is on Burnt Poplar Road.

      Thanks for pointing out that we need to add this to the announcement!

      Happy Buttoning,

      Mary Pat

  1. I see the details directly above for the 2013 show. Is the 2014 show also at the Inn of Greensboro? And off the subject here: can you tell me if there is much demand for vintage mother of pearl buttons; about how many folks usually attend these annual meetings and do they attend for the main purpose of buying buttons or for some other reason; is there a similar meeting in Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill? Thanks very much.

    • Hi Karen,

      Yes, the 2014 show is at the same location as years past, although now it is called “Holiday Inn.” This state meeting draws between 75 and 125 people over the course of two days, and people come to buy buttons, participate in the button competition and attend programs. This is the only state meeting of the year, but there are three clubs (Eastern, Central and Western) that meet monthly to buy, sell, swap and learn about buttons. There is contact information for each of the clubs here on the website.

      There is demand for mother of pearl buttons, especially if they have unusual color, carving or other material embellishments.

      Thanks for your interest!

    • Hi There,

      I just heard yesterday that the 2015 show will be held in Burlington, NC – about 15 minutes east of Greensboro. It will be in the Ramada Convention Center and it sounds as if the room rates will be extremely reasonable!

      We hope to see you there,

      Mary Pat
