Button Up!




Did you know good buttons are the crowning touch to a well finished garment? Great news...We just added hundred of buttons (and many more on the way) to our website. These buttons are handmade, unique buttons you won't find at a large fabric or craft store.

Ideas to add buttons to your life:
  1. Breathe new life into an old sweater by updating the buttons.
  2. Add a large button as to closure on your next felted bag project.
  3. Make a kid's sweater extra cute by adding fun buttons.
  4. Use as inspiration to begin a project - find buttons you love then build your sweater around them.
  5. Knit a basic cap then add a few whimsical buttons for a funky look.

Another reason to watch PBS

Did you know the one of the largest sindicated show on PBS is a needlework show? It's called Needle Arts Studio, hosted by Shay Pendray and it covers all things related to needles - knitting, crocheting, embroidery, needlepoint and more. Check it out!

Mary Ellen and I were lucky to see things first hand while taping an episode to launch the Chicks with Sticks Guide to Crochet.





If you want to find out more about the show, we are on episode 1603-2. Click here to find out when Needle Arts Studio appears on PBS in your area.
