Buttonware Giveaway!

Hi, my name is Amy, and I’m addicted to buttons.

Sorting and discovering vintage buttons is one of my favorite creative pastimes! What is it about this commonplace closure that’s so appealing? With so many colors, sizes, shapes and styles available, there’s such truth to the term “cute as a button.” Whether used as a practical fastener or a stylish boutique statement, buttons and their possibilities are seemingly endless. On my other website, TheVintageWorkshop.com, I offer hundreds of vintage images, printable fabrics and backgrounds, as well as a variety of downloadable vintage button cards to use in your craft projects.

My love of these vintage embellishments led me to pursue publishing my book Buttonware. This beautifully photographed book features dozens of clever projects created with these darling details, from bracelets and necklaces to fashion apparel. We teamed up with JHB International, the leading supplier in novelty and fashion buttons, to make our inspiring designs. In this video (which you can also find on Indygo Junction‘s How-to page and YouTube channel), I demonstrate how to construct a cute ring with a trio of buttons and braided elastic. These easy-to-make pieces are a great supplement to a holiday gift  just slide one onto the bow of a wrapped present for an extra special touch!

We also developed Buttonware kits, including everything you need to replicate the beautiful baubles highlighted in the book. From an elegant mother-of-pearl charm bracelet to a bright and sassy pendant, these accessories are sure to suit many different styles. These kits make great gifts for a do-it-yourselfer or a fashionista on your list.

    I love vintage buttons. They are like little pearls from the past and they remind me of my granny who taught me to sew.

  2. Chantelle

    My favourite is the Diagonal Stacked Pin, very nice. I have a passion for vintage as well, hope you can find time to visit my blog and see my antique machines:)

  3. Laurie Gauthier

    I love making crafts with buttons. My favorite kits are
    the 5114 Pendant and 5116 Stacked Pin.

  4. LoisC

    I am almost 65 and “STILL HAVE ALL MY BUTTONS”..so far! Have been into button tins for years and have waited to bid @ auctions. My favorite kit is the Diagonal Stacked Pin. The delightful button {ware} book could add hours of creativity to an already button addicted life. What fun.

  5. Marilize

    Wow – what a great book. i have way too may buttons to know what to do with and this sounds like the perfect solution. Onto the wishing list it goes πŸ™‚

    BUTTONS! Love them and the kits; so hard to choose just one, so . . .the mother of pearl charm bracelet, the diagonal stacked pin, the autumn stacked pin, the rose blossom pin, and the Asian style bracelet.

    I’m glad to read others also remove buttons on old clothes, usually the unusual ones.

  7. Carmen

    I like the Bright & Sassy Pendant kit

  8. Judy

    I would love the buttonware book. I can almost hear my female ancestors ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ on the neat projects to make with their buttons!!! LOL

  9. redcarousellion

    Finally, I now know wwhat to do with the hundreds and hundreds of buttons I’ve amassed over the years. If I was to win, I would love the two mother of pearl sets: bracelet #5124 and choker #5121

  10. Stephanie

    Natures Drop Necklace. But they all look fun. Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. Jan McCallister

    I like the necklace…vintage kit. I hadn’t thought to use the different sizes of buttons to create an interesting “bead”. I’m currently making beads out of potatoes. I’ve used buttons to decorate my Christmas cross stitch projects as well as cards. There are so many good uses for buttons but I always need some help to get the ideas flowing. Thanks for your postings.

  12. SANDY M

    Button, Button who’s got the Button……do you remember this fun game from your childhood days?
    My collection is my late Mom’s and my late Granny’s. would love to add to my collection…..

  13. Anette Gettinger

    Buttons are little bits of joy, fun, function and fancy. We all love to play with them and make with them. What a great give away!!

  14. Jan

    I love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Buttonware jewelry kit…. it’s so charming!

  15. Jerlyn Marshall

    I would like the Diag. Stacked pin and Nature’s Drop Necklace but more that anything I have been eyeing the book for some time.

  16. Emily

    I love the Nature’s Drop Necklace. It’s so pretty, and the buttons are fab!

  17. Melinda

    I would like the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Mother of Pearl Choker Kits. I love collecting buttons and all the possibilites of what you can craft with them. Your book looks like it would be a fun addition!

  18. Marilyn Coombs

    The book looks fantastic – I have a lot of buttons which I like to incorporate in my crafts. If I win I will have so many more uses for my buttons. I really like the Bright & Sassy Pendant and also the Rose Blossom Pin.

  19. Robin Buerk

    Because I love all kinds of buttons, my button tin runneth over, too! I think the cluster /stacked bracelet idea is really fun and creative. Your book looks like a great one to add to my craft book collection.

  20. Wilma Searcy

    I would choose the Asian Style Bracelet Kit and the Nature’s Cluster Kit. These would be gifts for my two granddaughters. I cherish my button jars inherited from my mother and my mother-in-law. They are full of some ordinary buttons, such as from work shirts, and some unique buttons, such as military uniform buttons, or fancy ones set with sparkling stones. All are special to me because they represent family history.

  21. drue hartwell

    oh my, oh my……I love buttons too. I’ve collected my grandmothers old ones, find them at garage sales and even take really fun ones off of clothes I’m donating to Goodwill. I help move senior citizens to retirement homes and sometimes they have button collections they give me. I also have some old french buttons I got 27 years ago when I was there as a young mother. I would so love to win this wonderful prize. Thanks Amy.

  22. Rosalyn

    Bright and Sassy and Nature’s Drop pendant.
    I’d like to try them all πŸ™‚ Looks very fun and interesting.

  23. Debbie S

    I love the cluster bracelet and stacked bracelet kits. I am a big bracelet fan!!

  24. diane oconnor

    I too love buttons… they are a part of what is and what will be… I have my grangmother’s button box filled with all sorts of lovely memories.

  25. Dee M

    I love the Rose Blossom Pin kit the most! All are great, though! I love buttons, too, Amy, and the book looks like it is filled with wonderful ideas!

  26. Joy Carver

    I love buttons and sorting them, I have inherited some vintage ones that I use incrafting. My grandmother used to give me her button jar and thread a needle with a button at the end. I spent hours just stinging buttons & un string and starting over.

    love 5124 & 5110

  27. Jackie Conley

    I eally like the rose pin kit and the bright and sassy vertical stacked pendant. I would probably try those two first but honestly they are all great. If I didn’t know they were buttons I wouldn’t be able to tell, at least at first glance. How creative. I don’t know how folks keep coming up with all these new ideas!!!

  28. Sue A.

    I have stocks of buttons, just waiting for inspiration! Your Buttonware kits will definitely get the juices going. Kits 5710 and 5127 intrigue me.

  29. Emily Schroeder Orvik

    I’m a button glutton! (Oh dear that doesn’t sound good – does it!) Would love to win the Autumn Stack and the Rosebud! The book would just be “over the moon” fun for my almost 7 year old and I to get into! : )

  30. Cassie

    I also accumulate and treasure buttons. I would love to try the mop bracelet and choker kits! This is the first I have heard of your new book–will be watching for it (if I don’t win it, lol)

  31. Ellie

    Buttons- I’ve used them over the years to teach math concepts to my sons , play tiddly winks, replace buttons, add to stuffies, etc. I remember that my grandma would bring little boxes and strips of cloth of discarded buttons home from the factory in which she worked. I once found an old tin of buttons at a yard sale- wish I knew the stories behind those buttons! I like the kits #5114, followed by #5124. Thanks!

  32. Marilyn Lennis

    The “Button Box” Ever gone through your Mother’s or Grandmother’s button box? Many of the buttons remind me of an outfit I wore as a child or an outfit my Mother wore. My Grandmother’s button box reminded me of how that generation saved everything and cut buttons off of old clothes before repurposing the fabric. Buttons are special!

  33. Barbra

    I love buttons so much and for so long that it finally became the focus of my online business. Buttons make me smile! The bright and sassy pendant kit looks so terrific. The book looks amazing!

  34. Rachel McClure

    I dugg some of you post as I cerebrated they were very beneficial very beneficial

  35. Kate

    I have about 4 generations worth of buttons. Love them all.

    My favorite kits: Nature’s Drop Necklace AND Vineyard Pendant. But they’re all lovely.

  36. Shirley Jackson

    I love being able to create new ideas and buttons are just the thing, right now! I have buttons from my grandmother and appreciate being able to use them for gifts to my family and friends. Picking one is difficult, but I really like creating bracelets! Thank you!

  37. Denny

    I am stunned to find such wonderful ideas from buttons. I would allways be the one sitting for hours as a child playing with my Mums button tins. She would cut them off all our clothes that went as rags. my imagination then fueled what I think started my love of craft, all due to a little button.

  38. Claire

    I love buttons, you can do so many things with them, (and not just on clothes). When my Grandmother died I was allowed to have her collection, it was great to receive this as when I was a child I remember playing with them. I played for hours with them, it seems so silly now but I would fasten them together and give them names they were in families and I can’t remember anymore, but since then I have “LOVED” buttons. So I would so love to win this prize, thanks for this chance.

  39. Shaiha

    A friend recently sent me some buttons and that has started a new love affair. I would like to win #5125 and #5110

  40. Jan Peterson

    My two favorites are Nature’s Drop Necklace and Mother of Pearl Choker. I too would love to make nice things from my button stash.

  41. julie king

    What an awseome site and so inspirational.
    from the humble button comes such a range of creative delights πŸ˜‰
    If i am lucky enough to win I would love
    Buttonware Book lJ1072 and rose blossom pin πŸ™‚
    Best wishes to everyone, go well, keep smiling and happy crafting

  42. FarWay Crafts

    As a child I played with the buttons my mother stored in a big jar. After she passed I became the owner of the jar. When my mother-in-law passed, I became the recipient of her huge tin of buttons. I found that I still liked playing with the buttons and picking out the pretty ones as well as wondering why there were some very strange ones in the collection. But my biggest desire was to be able to use the buttons. I finally hit upon a way to use the button to make pendants and earring which I sell at craft fairs. It is amazing how many people tell me that they still enjoy playing with button collections. I am sure that your book would help me find more ways to for me and others to enjoy the small wonders. And getting more buttons is always a big plus! Even if I do not win, I intend to get hold of you book. Thanks for sharing the love of buttons and ways to use them.

  43. karen b

    Amy, looks like there are many button addicts! I too have loved buttons since childhood. I Love finding them, but need inspiration for using them in a way that shows them off. Thank you for this opportunity. I especially like kit # 5111 ( my mom-in-laws maiden name is Rose) and for me, kit #5127. The colors are warm and the design reminds me of a cairn.

  44. Patty Virginia

    wow, they all are great kits. But, I would like the 5110 if I am the winner. What a great idea. I love buttons too and whenever I am at a garage sale, Joanne Fabric or web surfing I always search for buttons for the fabric flowers I make. Thanks for such a nice offer.

  45. Teri Baskett

    Nature’s Drop and the Vertical Stack are my favorite kits. I LOVE button rings the most. It would be great to see those projects in Button{ware}! Hope I win–lol. Teri

  46. Sherry Jackson

    Would love to win this!!! I favor your Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Button Ware Jewelry Kit. So very pretty. What a fun item to create!!!

  47. Joyce

    I love all the kits! Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Vertical Stacked Bracelet are my favorites

  48. Angela LeBlanc

    I love buttons, I have some from my grandmother, but haven’t found a piece of jewlery to do them justice as of yet. I did find 2 that I would like to try from your kits. 5121 and 5124, mother of pearl bracelet and choker, I think they are the prettiest I have seen in quite a while. They would serve as a starting point for using my buttons. Thanks for this opportunity to try to win your book and the kits. I would really like to make somehing with them that I could give my sisters, so they too could have a great reminder of just how special our grandmother was.

  49. Crystal Arcand (3Stairs)

    I’d be thrilled with the Vineyard Pendant kit and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit.

  50. MJ

    I not only have my great grandmothers quilting frame, her darning and sewing notions, and yes, even the corset and gown pattern (and partially made silk gown), I have her buttons. I am soon to be 61 years of age, so you can imagine how I treasure this gallon of ancient buttons, and I still cannot get enough. I think it is a button addiction!

  51. Rosalyn

    I would love the nature’s drop kit and anything with roses as my grandaughter’s name is Abby Rose and we have decorated her room in anything and everything to do with roses…love your design…

    I would love to win, how does it get any better than that!

  52. Dianne

    I have buckets of buttons saved and always think I will do something with them. Usually that means getting out a muffin tin so children can sort them. I would like to try kit #5115 the most.

  53. Beverly

    Have quite a collection of buttonst as well as my mother’s old button boxl Would love to win one of these kits.

  57. Sharon Rebecca Lowery

    I LOVE BUTTONS! Just like people each button is unique and each have stories to tell. It was very difficult to chose from the kits as each are very beautiful! #5128 and #5110 . Thank for an exciting giveaway!

  58. Cindy Perkins

    What a neat idea, they are so unique. I love to have any of them but I think that Crochet Button Pendent – #5114 and Asian Style Bracelet – #5128 are the ones I would choose. Thank you for the chance to win!

  59. Jaan

    Oh, Gosh! I really thought I was the only person to collect buttons. Always buying, but never using them…just love buttons. Guess its from when I was a kid my teacher had us do button Christmas tree cards every year. The Mother of Pearl Charm braclet is my fav. …it makes me think of my Sis-in-law, how beautiful she is.

  60. Barbara

    I like the Nature’s Cluster button bracelet.

  61. Julia

    The rose blossom pin kit is the one that I’d choose. I just love buttons and am so pleased to have a full jar now… but still want more and different varieties!

  62. Barbaranne

    Our cousin loves and collects buttons, so she would enjoy this book. I like the Crochet Button Pendant and Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet.

  64. Cathy H.

    I love the mother of pearl charm bracelet kit! The book would be great as I have lots and lots of buttons to put to good use!

  65. Susie S

    My mothers and grandmothers button jars were passed down to me. I can barely part with any of the contents. I think of my Mom and her Mom collecting them and cherishing them as I have. I will pass them down the generations also. Your ideas are inspirational. Your book will be on my wish list for Christmas. I like your kit for the Mother of Pearl Choker (5121) for its simplicity.
    Thank you.

  66. Donna Gaines

    I, too, am a button lover. I have quite a collection handed down from my Grandmother and Mother. I’ve never made any jewelry from them, but look forward to giving it a try.
    My two favorite Kits are the Mother of Pearl Choker and the Mother of Pearl Bracelet…# 5121 & # 5124. Would love to win these. Thanks for the opportunity and keep up the beautiful work you do!

  67. Knititall

    I love buttons! I like to shop for them at yard sales. I love your book, great project ideas. I could have so much fun with that!
    My fave kits are the Vineyard pendant and the crochet button pendant.

  68. Brenda

    wow I like buttons so much and the charm bracelet made of mother of pearl is my pick

  69. Jeanette

    I have a ton of old fashioned button that I found in my grandmothers old sewing box that I am dying to do something with! This would certainly help! Thanks.

  70. Kari

    Love these projects! Have been wanting to incorporate buttons into my jewelry making, but was not sure how to go about it, so this would be awesome! The 2 kits I would pick would be the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the clay swirl pendant!

  71. Susan Peters

    I look at this book and the kits everytime I visit your site and every time I look I am tempted to purchase a copy. I have a wonderful collection of old bakelite buttons and have wondered how to use them and now I have found a wonderful book for inspiration. I love crafting of any kind and this would be something new for me. The two kits I love are the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – 5124 and the Diagonal Stacked Pin – 5118. I love to give gifts that I make myself to friends and family. These are original and fresh. Thanks for sharing all the great projects and ideas. I love your designs!

  72. Marianne Smith

    I am passionate about buttons!. I have boxes full of buttons under my bed, so it’s easy to get to them when I need to use them in a project. I like the nature’s cluster bracelet and the autumn stacked pin. Thanks!

  73. Rinda Sansom

    As a young child, I would sit on the floor beside my Grandmother’s sewing machine, examining the buttons from her button box, as she told me where each button had once belonged. The old walnut button box, with the pincushion top, is now mine, and I have my own button collection…numbering in the hundreds…probably thousands! LOL! My two favorite button kits are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and Nature’s Drop Necklace, though I would be thrilled to add any of the kits to my jewelry collection!

  74. kathi shelley

    “Button, button, who’s got the button?” My gramma would play this game with my kid sis, me, and a couple of our playmates. We would take turns choosing a button from her stash of colorfully shaped buttons she kept in an old beat-up Christmas tin. I had forgotten about that game until I read some of the posts. When gram gave up her home and moved to a nursing home, she gave me her button tin. I still have those beautiful buttons and played “Button, Button” with my grandkids when they were little. My fave button kits are #5115 and 5118. A book about buttons, what a great idea!

  75. Kelly

    I love, love, love the mother of pearl kits! they are just stunning!!!

  76. jessica

    I love both of the Mother of Pearl kits. 5124,5121 The choker and the bracelet. When I was a kid I used to rub the buttons until my fingers were tired. I loved the smoothness of them. I still do that sometimes πŸ™‚

  77. Jenn Guymon

    I would choose the Vineyard pendant kit and the Nature’s Drop Necklace kit. So fun!!!

    I love buttons too… and making jewelry!! This is the perfect book for me. If I don’t win it, I will have to find it and purchase it instead!!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  78. Mindy Radojcsics

    Buttons are my favorite item to work with. I put them on scrapbook pages, make lots of jewelry with them, alter items, and I just made 70 Christmas cards using 3 buttons on each card. Just love them, they are so versatile.
    I really love the Mother of Pearl Bracelet and Choker sets $5124 & #5121

  79. Tami Finley

    Oh, my! I just discovered your site (s). Love all the kits!! But the vintage pendants are awesome and the pin is so cute!! Would love a chance to win and create some things from your book. Grew up with a sewing mother so buttons have special meaning . . .

  80. Ronnie

    Ohhhh, I love buttons too! This book looks wonderful.
    I love the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet and the Diagnal Stacked Pin.

  81. Mylyne

    What a wonderful give-away. A precious book and kits like the Asian-style bracelet and the mother-of-pearl pendant are to die for! Thanks for your giving spirit.

  82. JoAnn Yakemawiz

    I like the Asian Pearl Charm and the Clay Swirl kits. I am starting my own button collection, as none of the women in my family had them. But luckily, I turned out to be the crafty one!

  83. Debbie C.

    I love the bright and sassy, and the vertical stacked bracelet! Thanks for the nice giveaway!

  84. TerryAnn Porter

    I’d love to win your Mother of Pearl charm bracelet and Nature’s Drop Neckace kits!

  86. ballloonatic

    Just found you via craft gossip. I love to play with buttons and am inspired just by the pics from your giveaway! 5121 and 5126 look amazing!

  87. Jan

    I fell in love with buttons watching my grandmother sew on her treadle sewing machine. I would play with her jar of buttons listening to the hum of the sewing machine while she was sewing my new dresses. I would enjoy making #5124 and #5126 and reading the Buttonware book too. Thank you.

  88. Margaret Cureton

    What a wonderful book and kits! I started button collecting while working at a theatre many years ago- they were going to throw out a tin of them- nope- couldn’t let that happen:) The book is marvelous- what a great idea andthe kits look so fun- I especially would like to try the mother of pearl charm bracelet- I love bracelets, and the Autumn pin- really beautiful! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  89. Lelia

    Oh buttons, I’m weak in the knees ; )

    I liked all of the kits. The Mother of Pearl were awesome, the nature drop – lovely.

    Next to buttons, I enjoy pins – so, I’d have to choose the pin kits. Rose Blossom, Autumn Stacked, or Diagonal Stacked (in that order – I think). Really a difficult choice!

    You’ve got wonderful kits here!! Very creative.

    Always, Lelia

  90. Sharon Scott

    I love buttons! I have my Grandmas jar of buttons, and have started my Granddaughter a jar. I would love to win the buttons and 5124. Thank your generosity!

  91. Janet Henry

    I have always loved playing with buttons as a child and when I see a button bin in a store, I cannot resist running my hands through it. The colors, the textures, they are a delight!

  92. Judy Anthony

    I love, love, love buttons! I have even bought clothes at yard sales just to cut off the buttons to use on something else. I especially like the mother of pearl charm bracelet and choker kits. Thanks!

  93. Annie Fingeret

    I have always saved buttons and enjoy looking through them. I have some of my gramma’s old
    tins filled with buttons and some plastic containers
    that I use to sort them by color and style. I am so
    drawn to buttons and feel a great need to save them.
    I do have a crocheted button necklace that I love to wear and would like to play with making some jewelry. The kits look like fun to learn how to do this and also the book. I like all the kits and am thinking of the fun of starting with #5124 and 5126. Thanks and I had fun reading the other comments. There must be lots of buttons in our collections.

  94. Michele George

    I remember as a small child my mother had this red old tin that was filled with all sorts of different buttons that she had collected through the years from worn out clothes. I would love to sit and look through that tin of buttons. I would love to start my own “red tin” collection. Thank you for reminding me of such a wonderful memory. It would be a great start to my collection if I would win. Thank you for the opportunity. Michele

  95. Cindy W.

    I love the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the mother of pearl choker……I have a few jars of three generations’ buttons. Happy Holidays!

  101. TC

    Button collections are almost magical, aren’t they? How else to explain the fascination by both young and old. There’s something soothing about letting them run through your fingers, sorting them by color or size, hearing the clicking as they clatter together back into the jar or tin. I’d like kits 5127 & 5110.

  102. Patricia

    Hello Amy, I have loved collecting buttons for a very long time..My Mom sewed and I enjoyed watching her create so many projects even making her own patterns.. she always used special buttons on the clothes she sewed.. I also love to sew and create and using unusual buttons too. I love your kits and would choose the 5124 or 5126 thanks for the opportunity..

  103. TC

    Button collections are almost magical – how else to explain their appeal to young and old? There’s something soothing about letting them run through your fingers, sorting them by color or size, hearing the clicking sound as they rattle together back into the jar or tin. The kits I would like most are 5127 & 5110.

  104. Lori Eden

    I have a bucket of buttons I’ve been collecting for a long time. I pick them up where ever if find them. I rip them off shirts before throwing the shirts out. I would love the Buttonware book to finally put my buttons to use. I would also love the kits 5114 crochet button pendant & 5110 natures drop necklace. Thank you!

  105. Lori Eden

    I have a bucket of buttons I’ve been collecting for a long time but never knew what to do with them. I pick them up when I find them, rip them off shirts before throwing the shirts away. My daughters come to me when they need buttons. I would love the buttonware book to finally put all my buttons to use. I would love the kits 5114 crochet button pendant & 5110 Natures Drop necklace. Thank you!

  106. deb

    I love all the pendant kits! Such great colors!

  107. Michele Wise

    I would love the vineyard necklace.

    Michele

  108. Donna Cook

    I have my grandmothers and Great Aunts buttons. I try to use them on everything I can. Every time I use one I think my grandmother is looking down and smiling and saying, there goes another one of my buttons, to a good use. I played with the buttons and the empty wooden spools of thread when I was visiting her.
    It is hard to pick what one I like most. The book looks very interesting to me.
    Thank you.

    I love using old buttons in my work – old buttons have a history – I look at one and wonder where it has been in the course of its lifetime, what kind of garment was it on, was it worn by someone famous?

  110. Kirsten

    I’m dotty about buttons, too!

    It’s hard to choose only one item, but I really like your Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit.

    If I won, the items would go to a good home!

  111. Mary

    I would like to try the Crocheted Button Pendant #5114 and 5118 the Diagonal Stacked Pendant. What clever designs. Thanks for the lovely designs. Enjoyed reading Vintage Notions all the way through.

  112. Mary Jackson

    “Button, button who has the button?” Does anyone remember playing that when a kid? That was always a fun game when the cousins got together. i remember stringing buttons at both my grandmother’s house and at home. I now have my mom’s, grandmother’s and aunt’s buttons. My daugher liked go string buttons, and then my grandchildren! Look forward to having some great grands stringing someday in the near future.—maybe they’ll remember to put them away better than the others. Oh, sure! I would very much like the book and for the button kit I really like them all but 5124 and 5128 are my favorites. I sure wish me luck on winning this–probably as wonderful as winning the lottery! Thanks a bunch!

  113. Janis Gross

    I too an addicted to collecting buttons. I say “collecting” but I can’t seem to actually use them. I covet them as if they were more precious than gold. I have joked (not really) that if my apartment were on fire I would grab my buttons before leaving. There’s nothing like vintage buttons to get my heart racing. I hope I am the lucky winner of your wonderful book and button kits.

  114. Judy

    I also love buttons, old or new. Amy, Thanks for all the inspiration to create. I like kit #5114 and #5110.
    Happy Holidays!

  115. Amy Sapio

    My mother had this beautiful glass jar with an old metal lid.. She started collecting buttons when I was small. She was a wonderful, creative seamstress and made all my little dresses as well as various other items. She made this great calico ornaments and always put a button on the bottom.. She left the collection to me and I have continued to collect buttons from garage sales and wherever else I can find them. I also use them on my own sewing items. I have started collections for my girls using old mason jars.. I love this little tradition as it is fun and nostalgic. I liked all the kits but especially the Autumn stacked pin.. I thought that was different.. and vogue.. hip hip for buttons..

  116. Elaine Lewis

    I would love to win the Buttonware book. I love buttons and like to use them in a variety of crafts, like lots of other people!

  117. Millie S

    Oh the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kit!! I could see it with so many different types of buttons too!
    I have just learned about dying buttons & love the range of colors that you can get!!

    I have I personally have 1 large tin, 2 regular size tins and 2 quart jars filled with buttons of all shape, sizes, materials & conditions. I have finally started crafting with some of them! πŸ™‚

  118. Sindy Faddis

    Mother of Pearl Choker Kit is my favorite but I love all of them. I LOVE buttons and have even named my dog Button. I have 5 giant buttons on the wall in my living room. I have made a button flower bouquets too.

  119. Tabitha O.

    I am always on the lookout for buttons. Recently I nearly swooned when I saw some Victorian ones at a thrift store that had to come home with me. And I have passed on my button collecting ways to my children by letting them start a tin of their own with selections from my stash. I am always looking for a way to incorporate buttons into my daily life and I think I like the pins and necklaces the best because I could change them with my mood.

  120. Camille Padilla

    My grandmother had a peddle sewing machine with a several drawers attached and one of them was filled with buttons. These buttons were my playthings and I always had to put them back in place when I was finished playing with them. I could not keep any of her buttons, lest she should need them for a repair. With this introduction to buttons I found my love for buttons and have a few jars of them…,but can I ever have enough??
    NO. However, I do use them in projects.

  121. Barbara Burkhalter

    I love buttons too……..I have my grandmothers button collection, she started collecting as a young lady in the early 1900’s. My mother added to the collection for many years before she passed it all on to me. After my mother passed away, I found so many more buttons in her home…….a wonderful treasure! Picking out only two is a big job……but I think the Asian and Vertical would be my first choices. Thank you for sharing.

  122. Pat Healey

    This giveaway is awesome! I love to use buttons in all my artwork – on canvas, on scrapbook pages, on cards, in jewelry – in fact I’m wearing a button necklace right now πŸ™‚

  123. Lynne Beery

    Bright and Sassy and Autum are my favorite kits. I have been intrigued with buttons for ages. Once, at a craft and artisan show, we keep loosing our vendors and their spouses……well, we finally foud them. One by one they had gone to look for each other and found the missing parties literally up to their elbows in copper boilers full of buttons at a local antique shop. Men and women alike were sitting on the floor “matching up” button sets from teh boilers.

  124. Adrienne Amdahl

    Oh I love buttons. I used to play with my mother’s button tin collection when I was little. The two kits I would like to try are 5125 (vertical stacked bracelet) and 5121 (mother of pearl choker).
    Thanks

  125. teresa

    Button, button who has the button. I use buttons on many things I create. Love the buttons.

  126. Thelma Foutes

    My CA Kid and I both love buttons. My Mom used to glue buttons to cigar boxes and they really looked nice. But now Mom is gone and I wish I had all of her old buttons to play with. One time I took all of my old buttons and strung them by color on thread and they looked so pretty. I don’t have any of them any more and really want some. I’d love to have all of your kits but I guess I have to trim the list down to 2 of them. Those 2 would be 5111 Rose Blossom Pin and 5112 the Bright and Sassy Pendant. All the buttons I have are in pretty jars sitting around my sewing and computer rooms. Thanks.

  127. Candace

    As a child I loved to sit and look through my mother’s button box. It was fun to hear the stories about the different buttons, who wore them and what outfil they were on. What a wonderful experience! My favorite kits are the Mother of Pearl Choker # 5121 and the Crochet Button Pendant #5114. Thank you Amy for following your passion with buttons!

  128. KathyMS

    I just recently got my grandmother’s old treadle Singer sewing machine. The cabinet’s drawers were filled with old buttons, many of which I’m sure she cut off of clothing that was being tossed or recycled in some way. I remember my father tellling me that when he was a boy, he would play with my grandmother’s buttons from her sewing machine cabinet drawer. I love looking through these old buttons, and I can imagine my father’s hands as a little boy, sifting through some of these same buttons.

  129. Donna McDonald

    One of my favorite things to look for when my friends and I go antiquing is to look for buttons. They don’t have to be “special” . I love the plain ones just as much. You can do so many things with buttons, it makes my head spin to think about them all. And to wonder about the ideas I haven’t thought of yet. My favorite buttons are the ones I get from friends. Lots of times they are from their grandmother or mother’s stash. They tell so much about the time and person. What they were going to be used for or why didn’t they get used is always fun to speculate on. I wonder where my button stash will end up someday. Hopefully they will go to a “button junky” just like me.

  130. Rheana Corirossi

    I love buttons! yes I am an addict too! it runs in the family. I would love one of the kits. I especailly love # 5114. I wish the library had more of your books. I’ve given Vintage notions several times as a present and am doing a library program in the spring based on it!

  131. Lynne Burkhardt

    Buttons are my passion! My two picks would be #5124 and #5116. This girl can never have too many buttons!

  132. Angela Campbell

    There is a store in St.Francisville Louisiana called Grandmothers buttons – I love all their button projects and would love to win something so I can make my some button loveliness!!

  133. Debbie Mahlberg

    The older the button the more I love it. I have collected buttons for many years and have jars and jars of them. I have gone into the jars to decorate quilts, mittens, repair shirts, etc. The kits that I would enjoy are the Vinyard Pendant and the Vertical Stacked bracelet. Both would be tons of fun to wear and make.

  134. Barbara Heffernan

    I have finished so many projects with buttons. When my mother passed away my sister gave me some buttons that I forgot Mom had. What a treasure! Picking two kits was very difficult, but the two I liked the most were #5121 and #5118. Love how the buttons look when they are put together. Thank you for always sharing new products with us.

  136. Barb Skinner

    My Mother’s button tin was a place I get lost in for hours, holding, sorting, and admiring buttons from years gone by. Now that tin is part of my home and if I want to go back in time I sit down with the button tin and remember when…I would the mother of pearl bracelet kit 5124, thanks!

  137. Brenda Jennings

    Hi, Amy! I am also a button addict. I always loved playing in my Grandma’s sewing supplies, especially the buttons; but, I really fell hard for old buttons in my mid-teens when I found a small hatbox filled to the top for $2.00 at the Goodwill. I’ve found a lot more over the last 35 years, but never any as nice as that original batch … handblown glass, jet, paperweight, MOP, coconut, military, etc.

    My two favorite Buttonware kits are the Mother-of-Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Bright and Sassy Pendant.

    Thanks for all your inspiration!

  138. Alice Kelly

    The mother of pearl bracelet and the crochet pendant necklace are my favorite. I have been fascinated with buttons for more than 50 years since my Grannie let me sort through her button jar.

  139. Charlou

    Believe it or not, after looking at the kits and choosing, I went back and re-read the post and saw I picked your examples. How can a girl who grew up with a charm bracelet not love the idea of buttons as charms., so the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet speaks to that and my love of antique buttons. I’ve been trying to add more color to my life so what better than the Bright and Sassy Pendant. Thanks for your ideas.

  140. jeanne

    buttons are so much fun, there is so much you can do with them. And jewerly is the best thing to use them for. I just love the Diagonal Stacked pin and Autumn Stacked pin, so beautiful.

  141. Elizabeth Libbey

    It was hard to choose. Any of them would be wonderful, but I think my favorites are 1. Nature’s Cluster Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit Γ’β‚¬β€œ 5126 and 2. Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit Γ’β‚¬β€œ 5124. Thanks for this great opportunity.

  142. Ginger

    What a joyful giveaway! Thanks Amy–for the chance to win the book, the buttonware kits and the buttons. When I was a young child, a neighbor and friend (family) would bring the kids in our neighborhood together to hear “button” stories. I don’t remember the stories, but I do remember the woman who told the stories and the buttons! She had them in a “tin” or maybe it was a bath powder box. She would randomly take or remove a button from the container and create a story. It was memorable…the buttons, the box and sitting the my friend’s living room, when we were 4 or 5 and lisitening to the button-stories.

    As a teeenager, my mother taught me to sew as she was sewing almost all of my clothes. Many of the garments had buttons.

    As a young adult, I had the opportunity to shop at a fabric store where the owner would “cut” off the number of buttons that were needed for a project–she still does it, even today. And she still has a very wonderful collection of buttons–old and new that are for sale.

    I have had a lifetime of enjoying buttons! I haven’t looked through BUTTONWARE, but I now look forward to using it to create some great buttonware as gifts.

    I love the Rose Blossom Kit Pin-my daughter has become enamored with felt roses and wreaths and my son spent a year in Japan, learning Japanese, so i also think the Asian Style Bracelet kit is great.
    Thanks again–I enjoy your blog and both websites very much. God Bless You and yours.

  143. Helen Stevens

    I really like the Mother of Pearl charm kit for its elegance and the vertical stacked for its colorful whimsy!

  144. Margaret Schuh

    I love buttons! I have many old canning jars filled with vintage buttons from my mother and grandmothers. I also have buttons purchased by the cup for 50 cents from and outlet store in the small town in which we lived! I have used them in many projects, but I can see that I need a copy of Buttonware! It was hard to choose but if I were to win I think I would like to have kit #5124, the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and #5111 – the Rose Blossom Pin.

    Thanks!

  145. Anne Gilmore

    I’ve loved buttons since I played with my mom’s button box and my grandma taught me to sew! How much fun it would be to win any of the kits, but I’d especially like the #5127. Thanks for the giveaway!

  146. Mary Ann Koonce

    I too have always been fascinated with buttons. My mother gave me an old button tin full of buttons from the 40’s and 50’s and I was hooked. Plus back then they did not take up much space – not now!
    I loved all the kits, but I believe that I would like to start with this one.

  147. Shannon

    One of the greatest joys that I have is going to rummage sales, yard/garage sales, church sales & estate sales and finding bags of buttons. I also have a “Texas Tin” from the 30″s that are full of buttons that came from my grandmother. My three year old granddaughter is just as addicted as I am. If I won…Perfect for crafting with my granddaughter…I would love to have Kit # 5124 & Kit 5128. Thank you!!! Shannon

  148. Patricia Douty

    I am addicted to buttons as well. I have bought them at flea markets, yard sales, on-line, auctions, EVERYWHERE! I love kits 5124 and 5111. Currently i make and sell rings, pins, necklaces and bracelets out of buttons. It is so fun to watch people’s reaction when they see my buttons on the table, neatly sorted and arranged like a rainbow. I have even had men stop and finger through the buttons. I tell people that buttons are to girls what legos are to boys! Should I win the contest, it would be like Christmas morning.

  149. Sweetpea1962

    Love the kits! I would use the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet for my best friend’s Christmas gift!

  150. JIll

    Love the Rose Blossom Pin and the Vertical Stacked Bracelet! Gorgeous!

  151. Paula Jenkins

    Hi! I have always loved old buttons, too. Used to have a vintage clothing store, & find great buttons while searching for clothes. Have found some cool bakelite & deco ones & wanted to make some cool jewelry with them. Would love to win the book, & like kits # 5118 & 5124. Thanks for all your inspiration!

  152. Belle

    natures drop necklace and autumn stack pin are my 2 favs!!!

  153. Linda Olson

    My choice is the vineyard vintage, and the eco kit. I have this book and it is great.

  154. Rebecca Lawrence

    Hello, I am Rebecca & I, too, am a button addict. Though I have never stooped so low as to deprive my pets of food or my family (said pets & myself) of a roof over our heads in order to fund my addiction, I must say that button cache is a little on the excessive side, taking up a whole bookshelf in my crafty wall unit, and I have been known to sit and sort this cache – saved in only the most interesting of vintage glass jars, with lids, of course – by color, by size, by shape, by what-will-I-think-of-next, long into my solitary nights….Maybe my addiction has cost me a social life, but…do I regret? Heck, no! Which is why I am hear to enter myself in your most generous give-away. Choosing a kit is hard; choosing two almost harder, but I finally managed: I swoop for the “Asian Style Bracelet”, knowing the attention & dedication that has gone into finding the beads with the right “resonance” for the elegant, very sophisticated piece. At the other end of the spectrum is the “Vineyard Pendant”, which just tickles me to bits! I get a real zing from those brightly colored slices of button-ware stacked so cleverly and carrying such…authority, I think, is the word. It’s a powerful yet deceptively “cute” piece; looks “whimsical” but carries clout, if that makes sense. It’s a love thing with me, how can I explain it? Thanks ever so much for allowing us buttonistas to come out & play with you! Happy Holidays!

  155. Rene from OZ xo

    I just love placing buttons on cards, I think anyone from my generation 60+ their mother always had a button tin because those days all the buttons were cut off to be used again, it’s a bit different these days. I would love to win the 1lb of JHB buttons, thanks for the chance to win.Rene from OZ xo

    Thanks for the contest!

  160. Joanne Halm

    Looking through my button collections is very soothing to me. When my Mother and I get together we often look through her collections and remember the garments they have trimmed. If I must choose only two kits, then the Vineyard Pendant and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet are my favorites. I have made & given the Nature’s Drop Necklace. Thank you!

  161. Michele Van Epps

    I have to get a copy of this book! I have jars of buttons, boxes of buttons, etc. I love all of the kits, but I’d have to say my favorites are the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the rose blossom pin/pendant. Of course, any of them would be wonderful to make!
    Thank you for such a fun book!

  162. Jeana

    I love the idea of this contest. I love buttons. I am always picking up buttons at garage and yard sales not to mention cutting them off of old clothes. Now I have jars and jars of buttons that I have no idea of what to do with them if they don’t go on a sewing project.

    I would love to try Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit Γ’β‚¬β€œ 5124 and Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit Γ’β‚¬β€œ 5124

  163. Danielle

    What a great giveaway!!! I love buttons too! Growing up my grandmother had a big tin full of buttons. I remember trying to find the pairs and then imagining what they came off of. Sometimes her or my mother would tell me about them. I now have a lot of those buttons. I love finding them at garage sales or just on sale in the store. My pick is the 1lb buttons. That would be amazing! πŸ™‚

  164. Jean Blythe

    I love buttons, too! I used to dig around in my mom’s and aunt’s button tins, looking at all the different ones. I have some stash of my own now!
    I really like quite a few of the button kits. I really like the Nature Drop necklace and the vertical stacked bracelet the best. There are so many cute and fun ones to pick from!

  165. Lyletta Groves

    Lyletta says I spent hours playing with my Grandma’s button box. I lived with my Grandparents on a farm I was an only child so my Grandma had time to teach me how to sew and use buttons to add to quilts and clothing.I would like the Buttonware Book lJ1072 or the Natures Drop Necklace 5110. Thank you for a chance to win such great gifts

  166. Karen Agee

    I love, love buttons–all sizes, new, old, antique, cute shapes. Even have buttons from a great, great aunt probably dating from the mid-1800s. I especially like the 5127 pendant. Would be great for summer or fall. I find your work beautiful and inspirational. Thank you!!

  167. Sande Speck

    Since I am always looking for ideas to share with my craft group, your book on buttonware seemed to fit the need. We look for quick projects that all skill levels can complete. In our group, we often talk about the buttons we have collected over the years. I have many interesting ones from my Grandmother as well as my recently deceased Mother. I would find numwerous uses for your book. I looked at the kits and it was difficult to select just 1 or 2. Number 5128 and 5126 looked of interest. Thanks

  168. Debbie Platt

    Hi, I love using buttons in all kinds of projects. I once made a bouquet of button flowers. They make me smile when I look at them. I love the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet. I love charms.
    Thanks

  169. Rebecca Rivera

    I have loved and collected buttons my entire life! Long before it was cool to collect and craft with them! When I was a kid, my friends grandmother had a huge collection of buttons in an old cookie tin and she would let us thread a needle and string them, but we always had to put them back in the old tin when we were done. I wanted so much to take them home with me! I have picked up this book many times in the store and looked through it, would love to have a copy. I love all the kits! Picking one is difficult, but I really like #5114. Thanks!

  170. Melissa Gerber

    My grandmother used to cut the buttons off any new clothing she bought and replace them with better buttons. I, too, inherited her button stash! My favorite kits are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet, and the Vertical Stacked Bracelet. Thank You!

  171. Brie

    I like the mother of pearl bracelet and the rose blossom pin. what cute ideas!

  172. Meredith

    I would love the Bright and Sassy pendant kit. It looks so cheerful!

  173. Karen

    Numbers 5111 and 5115 are just fantastic

  174. Mary Elizabeth Tait

    Your kits are amazing! I loved the Rose Blossom Pin kit and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit. My love of buttons started very young when my great aunt gave me a jar filled with old, antique buttons when I was about 8 years old. Best gift EVER!!

  175. Diane

    Hi Amy,
    I have a collection of buttons from my mother and would love to do something creative with them. I’d like to work them into clothing, quilting and pillows, as well as jewelry. I wear necklaces most often so I would pick 5127 even though I love the other jewelry pieces. My second choice would be the clay swirl pendant 5115 since I have worked with clay and it might inspire me to do more. Projects such as these are a much better use of the buttons than just putting them in a jar.

  176. Mary Elizabeth Tait

    I have LOVED buttons since I was a young girl. One of the best gifts I ever received was jar filled with antique buttons from my great aunt!

  177. Bree

    Such an awesome giveaway! My favorite kits are: (1) Bright & Sassy Pendant and (2) Rose Blossom Pin. Thank you for the chance to win!

May you and yours have a wonderful Chistmas and God Bless you and your family . Dixie

  184. Sandi

    Over the years I have continued to add to the button bag that my Mom gave to me decades ago. As a child, I played with the buttons, sorting them by color or size. The special buttons were the ones shaped like gems. I would put a piece of string through one and make believe it was the Hope Diamond on my finger. Button memories are fun. Should I win your wonderful book and button prizes, that would be amazing. My favorite button jewelry kits are the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet #5124 and the Vertical Stacket Bracelet #5125. They are both sweet!

  185. Linda

    I have been collecting buttons for years–started with dressmaking, smocking, and now quilting, both wool and crazy–buttons just add so much! I’ve even been known to cut buttons off of a garment before repurposing it! Would love even more ideas–like jewelry making to use these beauties!

  186. DQ

    I like the vertical stacked bracelet and mother of pearl charm bracelet. I love the giveaway and hope to win!

  187. Patricia H.

    My sister and I played with my mother’s stash of buttons while she sewed. My mother recycled buttons from our childhood clothes and put them on our daughter’s outfits that she made for them. It was so neat to see our girls wearing clothes from the same patterns, but in updated fabric and trims.
    I’d like to try the Crocheted button pendant to learn the technique, and the Autumn stacked pin because I like the mix of colors. I also like the brights and mother of pearls, so I guess I just like your button projects in general!

  188. Becki

    P.S. 5112 Sassy buttonware kit is second favorite…sorry for missing the wording that said two… oops and thank you

  189. Becki

    5124 button kit is stunning! The M-O-P bracelet kit is such a happy looking one. Thank you for the opportunity to play along in the Book or Kit Giveaway..Indygo Junction, your wonderful ideas put into kits and patterns..Tres Yummy!

  190. Jennifer Wright

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity Amy. I am a button lover & your Button Ware Book and Kits would be an exciting gifts for all of the girls and women that I know. Thanks for sharing your pictures too on your website. Even though I loved all of the kits you offer, and it’s very hard to choose only two, I have decided that the two kits that I prefer are:

    Diagonal Stacked Pin – Button Ware Jewelry Kit – 5118

    Nature’s Drop Necklace – Button Ware Jewelry Kit – 5110

    Have A Beautiful Christmas Everyone!

  191. Dawn

    I have the same addiction! I think about all the people who have used the buttons or why they bought them and didn’t use them…I put buttons on everything I make!

  192. Katheryme Molina

    I like the Bright and Sassy Pendant. It is colorful and reminds me of a spinning top. Very pretty! I have a jar of buttons that my mom collected when I was a little girl in the 50’s.

    I Love Buttons. I would love the Mother of Pearl bracelet!!

  199. Carol G

    I love the look of the Asian Style Bracelet and the Diagonal Stacked Pin. All the kits are GREAT and so unique! It took me a while to make a decision on just-two. Thank you and thank you JHB for the chance to own them.

  200. Katrina Little

    I LOVE old mother of pearl buttons – the shapes, luster, and handcrafted quality are just gorgeous. They remind me of my grandmother who taught me to sew on a old treadle machine! If forced I would choose the mother of pearl charm bracelet and lacy shell choker kits. Would love the other buttons to use in my sewing endeavors as both functional and decorative accents. Thanks so much for a great opportunity!

  201. Tracy

    Love the Mother of Pearl Bracelet and Choker! They remind me of fnding abalone shells on the beach in CA when we lived there in the 60’s.

  202. Lillian

    I too inherited a cherished box of buttons from my Grandma Merritt. Recently I was using some of these buttons to embellish a purse I was making and remember wondering, how tired was my grandma when she got a chance to sit down and cut these buttons off clothing that was no longer usable? (She raised nine children under very difficult conditions!) I would be thrilled with any of the Buttonware kits, but I am particularly drawn to the pendants – especially the Vineyard and Bright and Sassy.

  203. Barbara Bird

    hard to choose which I liked best but I think it wold be the pendents. Nature Drop Neclace # 5110 and Crochet Button Pendent # 5114 were my favorites.

  204. AnnaLucia

    Uh, oh….I failed to state that I l-o-v-e the Mother-of-Pearl kit…simply lovely!

  205. AnnaLucia

    Buttons, buttons, buttons! I inherited an amazing stash of antique buttons from my great-aunt Minnie-Mae many, many years ago….and to this day I still love doing what I did as a child w/ my mother’s stash of buttons; carefully pouring buttons out onto a tray and sorting them….by color, by size, by type, etc. My now grown daughter did this as she was growing up and I look forward to the day when she has children who can do the same. Keeping my buttons in big, old Mason jars on an open shelf in my sewing/craft area are a constant reminder of the joy buttons have and do continue to give me! I am a button-a-holic no doubt…..Thank you for this delightful give-away!

  206. Jules

    I’m a button lover too! I have buttons from my Mom & both Grandmas & my own stash. I love adding them to jackets, crafts, & wallhangings.
    I’d love to make the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet & Mother of Pearl Choker.
    Thanks so much for bringing your crafty ideas & giveaways to crafty ladies!

  207. Brenda

    Ooh!! So hard to chose; but, because I love to wear pins, my choices would have to be Autumn Stacked pin and Rose Blossom. they’re beautiful.

  208. Annette Crain

    Oh, besides my passion for “fabric” as a quilter, my second love would have to be old vintage buttons. I love to embellish my quilts with them for an added dimension. I really think having your book would be wonderful. Thanks for the passion to win one.
    Happy holidays!
    Nettie

  209. Becky

    I love buttons, too! My favorite Button Ware kits are the Nature’s Drop Necklace and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. I want to learn how to make the button ring in the book, too!

  210. Pat

    How facinating! I love vintage buttons and have a few I’ve found at various sales. My two favorite kits are Bright and Sassy Pendant #5112 because it is so colorful and would go with a lot and I love the Asian Style Bracelet. I have a daughter-in-law who is Asian and I would make this as a gift for her. Thank You Amy for the opportunity to win. I’m buying your book for my niece who shares a love of vintage anything. Happy Holidays!

  211. Karen Nelson

    I remember playing with my moms buttons as a child. She never threw away a button. Took them off of old clothes. I have many of those buttons now and enjoy looking at them in the old glass jars. I do use them also. I really like kits 5126 and 5124. I have a beautiful button bracelet that I bought at a craft fair.

  212. Susie Allen

    I am buying your book and a kit for my mother in law who meets with a group of ladies to bead once a month. It would be wonderful if I won the book and the two kits to be able to “join in” with them, as we live cross country from one another. My two favorite kits are Autumn Stacked Pin Buttonware Jewelry Kit #5116 and Crochet Button Pendent Kit #5114. Thanks!

  213. Kim Auletta

    I’ve been collecting buttons since I was little. My Grandmother was a seamstress in NYC (I have her button box) & her mother was a seamstress at Westminster Abbey for the choir, so I guess its in my blood! I love pins and would pick the 2 pin kits.

  214. Angela King

    Crochet button pendant and nature cluster bracelet. Very different,one each for me and my very different sister!

  215. Mary Sue

    I too have always loved buttons… It goes back to Mom’s button box. But the love never wavered, I even wear buttons threaded onto my hoop earrings…so very special buttons end up mixed in with my jewels . I Especially like the lacy shell and the swirl clay. Even if I don’t win I think I’ll be ordering those. Thanks for sharing your passion for buttons and everything sewing with me.

  221. Lynn Blagden

    Amy,

  223. Peggy Hinkle

    Every Sunday after Church my Grandmother fixed dinner for the family and while it was being prepared, I entertained myself with her wonderful button box. Those memories of buttons remain so strong, those of us in that age category all seem to have them. How sad that today’s children missed out on such a simple pleasure as this. I will so look forward to reading your book that will be under the Christmas tree for me. I like the Natures Drop
    #5110 and the Vinyard Pendant #5127 Thank you.

    I love the mother of pearl charm bracelet πŸ™‚
    I have an obsession with vintage glass buttons and mother of pearl/shell buttons…especially teeny tiny ones! What a great competition give-away πŸ™‚

  230. Cassandra

    I think the book looks amazing, your button set kits are beautiful. I really love the Asian Buttonware Kit and would love to have some to create with as a mixed media artist. Hope everything goes well for you.

  231. Cheri Rupp

    I really like the Natures Cluster Bracelet and the Lacy Shell Choker. They are both beautiful and would be fun to do.
    As a child my sister and I would spend hours with our grandmothers button box. She would thread a needle with long pieces of thread and we had a ball. What a wonderful memory. I still have some of those buttons.

  232. liz

    I really like the Crochet Button Pendant. It reminds me of the buttons in the tin cans I have from my Grandmother and Great Aunt. I always find just the right button for my projects in those tin cans. And I love just running my hand through the buttons over and over again.

  233. Cheri Rupp

    I really like the Natures Cluster Bracelet and the Lacy Shell Choker. They are both beautiful buttons and would be fun to do. As a child I would spend hours with my grandmothers button box. My sister and I learned to hand sew by threading them on the needle and long piece of thread she gave us. What fun we had.

  234. Donnell S.

    I love buttons! I would love to win this giveaway. If I do win, I would like the Diagonal Stacked Pin 5118 and Autumn Stacked Pin 5116. They’re so elegant.

  236. Marilyn Kirschen

    I have a button stash, just like I have a fabric stash. My two favorites are #5112, the Bright and Sassy Pendant, and #5127, the Vineyard Pendant. I like them because they’re bold and they’ll look great when I’m wearing a turtleneck sweater. Thanks for the fun contest!

  237. Suzette

    I really like all the button kits! Buttons are so interesting and can be utilitarian or fashionable or both. I remember years ago playing in my mother’s button box. My sister and I had so much fun! I’m hoping that my first grand daughter, who is on the way, will visit someday and play in my button box! What a nice little tradition to pass on, don’t you think?
    Well, since I have to choose two button kits, I’d say my favorites are the Mother-of-Pearl Choker Kit and the Mother-of- Pearl Button Charm Bracelet Kit. They would make a pretty set.
    Thank you for doing this and sharing your book and these wonderful button kits and all the give aways you do.

  244. Joan Lembi

    Love the mother of pearl charm bracelet. I have been in love with buttons for years and have been collecting them since I was a girl playing in my mother’s button box!

  245. Joan Bauer

    I also have collected buttons, I have them separated by color and stored in old Ball & Kerr canning jars. I like to look at them in through the glass. The Mother of Pearl Bracelet really appeals to me as I have a jar of them and the Nature’s Cluster Bracelet. Looking forward to wining and be able to do something more with them than just look at them.

    Thank you.

  246. Donna

  248. Andrea Sargent

    I love vintage buttons because they’re so easy to collect and it’s a great hobby for moms and grandmas to share with little girls. I love the vineyard pendant for “tomboy” side of me that loves rich earthy colors. But my other side loves the cute and whimsical rose blossom pin.thank you so much for sharing your love for buttons.

  249. Jan King

    My fascination with buttons started nearly 60 yrs ago.. I learned my colors and to count sitting on my grandma’s knee playing with her button box. Now I’ve continued the tradition with my grandkids. Your book has so many ideas I would love to try. It’s hard to choose my favorites of your jewelry kits, but I would say Nature’s Drop Necklace 5110 and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet 5124. What a great contest!

  250. Beckey

    Just the mention of buttons brings a smile to my face! I have collected buttons since a child (way too long ago). I really enjoy that you have written this book, and put together the kits. My favorite are the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the vineyard pendant. I have something a bit similar that was made for me by 9 year-old neighbor girl about 30 years ago, and I treasure it. Hangs on cabinet pull in guest bedroom.

  251. Jeanne Gray

    Too good to be true! My favorite kits are the Nature’s Cluster Bracelet and the Diagonal Stacked Pin.

  253. Karen Schiller

    Sweet!! My two faves are the Rose Blossom Pin & the Bright and Sassy Pendant. I was blessed with a seamstress mom and the wonderful memories of looking at patterns; fabrics and buttons for hours with her…thank you for sharing your ideas and inspirations!!

  254. Robin

    I like the autumn stack pin and the drop necklace and everything else!

  255. Suzanne

    I love vintage buttons and don’t want to ever part with the ones I’ve collected over the years. The two button kits I like the most, although they are all great, are the Asian style bracelet and the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet.

  256. marie albano

    I think of buttons as little objects of art to enhance bigger creations of art. There is nothing like the creative rush one gets from a jar full of buttons. You can feel the creative juices flowing with the nostalgic look of the past when they are vintage! There is nothing like the feel of a vintage button knowing another creative person had put it in their own garment. I would love 2 of the same asian bracelet for me and my best friend and sewing buddy, or any 2 of the same.

  257. Kathy Kauth

    I Love these they look so cool, my granddaughter would love these too I like the 5126 Nature’s Cluster Bracelet kit and the 5118 Diagonal Stacked Pin kits, they look amazing. Thank you for the chance to win some of your great products.

  314. cindi heness

    I have loved buttons since I was little. My Gram would let me string the buttons on needle and thread. She had a huge cookie tin full of them, and I would play with them for hours. I have more buttons than most people could imagine having. I have them in jars, tins, antique bowls – you name it! I have been known to buy a piece of vintage clothing for the buttons! I would most like to try the Rose Blossom Pin – kit 5111 and Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet – kit 5124. Thanks for the chance to win!

    My daughter’s middle name is Rose, so I am partial to the Tose Blossom Pin Button ware Jewelry kit. I enjoy wearing colorful pendants and so the Vineyard pendant Button Ware Jewelry kit is my second choice. I love old buttons and have collected a number of vintage buttons from family and friends.

  318. Dorothy Ransom

    I love the Mother of Pearl bracelet kit and the Mother of Pearl Chocker kit. Mother of Pearl buttons are my very favorite.

  319. Eunice Olson

    They are all so beautiful! My grandmother and mother were both very experienced hand and machine sewers and I was lucky enough to inherit all their buttons! I treasure every one…and there are some beauties. Thanks for this opportunity, I would love some new ideas for using them!

  320. Donna Lynn Seal

    I love your new book. I really love your button pins. The diagonal stacked pin is so clever. That pin would look so good on my black jacket. What a clever way to use something I already have on hand. I like the idea of turning something old into something new, yet not losing the history of the buttons.

  321. Karen Farley

    I also LOVE old buttons. When I worked for an auction company I would always bid on any buttons that came through the sale. I would like to win the Mother of Pearl Choker and bracelet kit. What a great gift!!!!

  333. catherine visage

    I adore the mother of pearl bracelet & chocker.
    Buttons are so fascinating. the old graphics on the cards are interesting also.
    I want to brag a bit, I own a bank storage box full of old buttons from a deceased tailor in chicage. her granddaughter told me that customers would bring buttons from all around the world. occasionally I just sit and look at my chest of treasures.

  334. Marta Brandes-Miesner

    I have to go with the Asian Style Bracelette and the Mother of Pearl Choker, but it was sooo hard to choose!!!They are ALL adorable!

  335. Darlene S

    These remind me of the fun my daughter and I had makeing little people out of buttons and putting them on necklaces. Thanks. My choices would be 5114 Crochet Button Pendant and 5126 Nature’s Cluster Bracelet. Thanks again for all the ideas and memories brought back.

  339. Janet Spaid

    Since taking a button bracelet class at Sew Expo Puyallup in 2010, I have made over 150 bracelets. Although I’ve given most away, I’ve sold enough to friends to somewhat pay for my “button habit”. I would love to try the Asian Style bracelet and the Autumn Stacked Pin, both beautiful, and quite different than what I usually make. Thanks for the chance to win such cool stuff!

  340. Theresa Hayes

    My favorite two picks are the mother of pearl bracelet and the Crochet Button Pendent

  341. Kristy

    I would love the mother of pearl charm bracelet kit!!!!

  342. Diane

    The beautiful iridescence of mother-of-pearl makes kit #5113 my first choice. I would personalize it by adding vintage treasures from my own button stash.
    I’d also like to try Nature’s Drop Necklace #5110. Whether found or handed-down, buttons have a calming and nostalgic appeal!

  343. Kelly Paquet

    I love buttons,too, and have jars of them decorating my art workroom! I would enjoy having more to play with! I especially liked your Buttonware Natural Drop Necklace kit – very eye-catching, and your Mother of Pearl charm bracelet – so feminine!

  346. mandy whalen

    I liked the Crocheted button pendant and the MOP charm bracelet, they look like fun to make.

  347. Julietta Brothers

    I love the colors, textures and shapes of buttons. My grandmother had a wonderful button box, going through it was like found treasure. My cousins and I made bracelets and necklaces out of buttons long before it was fashionable.
    This is a very difficult choice; itÒ€ℒs like going to the candy store as a child and only being aloud to choose one type of candy. If I must choose just one, it is the Vineyard Stacked Pendent. I love the multi color arrangement and the use of different sized buttons. It looks a little like candy too.

  348. Debra Allen

    The Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet is fabulous!! I’d love to win it! I’ve been buying buttons for years and have always wanted to make things with them. Winning a kit and book would spur me into action!!

  349. ReNae Crabtree Allen

    If I could have two, it would be the following: The Crochet Button Pendent – Button Ware Jewelry Kit Γ’β‚¬β€œ 5114 and the Rose Blossom Pin – Button Ware Jewelry Kit Γ’β‚¬β€œ 5111.
    The simplicity of these jewelry button pieces is what speaks to me. I love all of them! It was hard to choose a favorite!
    Thank you Amy!

    During WWII my mother and my brothrt& Sister had to stay in motels and rooming houses and were not allowed to go out.

  368. Christine Glazar

    I have both my mother and grandmother’s old button boxes and as some other stated, they bring back such fond memories. I spent hours playing with them when I was young. Such a great idea for a book. Love the Mother of pearl charm bracelet kit. My mother would love it!

  369. Mary Sutton

    OhI love it. Buttonware is one of my favorite crafts. You have such wonderful ideas for their use. I love the “Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kit.” And the “Crochet Button Pendant Kit,” combines two of my favorite crafts. Just Love it all!

  370. Jane Fink

I’d love to win your giveaway. My 2 favorite kits are the mother-of-pearl charm bracelet & the Asian bracelet. Thanks so much!

  371. mary ann blazevich

    The two buttonware kits, the autumn stacked pendant and the crochet button pendant, were most appealing to me.

    At an ealier age, I crocheted a necklace chockful of Grandma’s antique buttons. Turned out that dangling collection of buttons weighed about a pound and had the ability to remind my friends of their grandmothers.

  372. Helen Bicknell

    I like the mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Mother of Pearl Choker the best. Who knew you could do so much with buttons!

  373. Veronica Christensen

    My favorites are the Autumn Stacked Pin, I love Autumn and my favorite colors are the toasted hues of fall, The other is the Rose Button Pin, I’d make that one for my Mom she loves Roses. I just finished working on adding buttons to my fall wallhanging to finish the accents on wool penny squares. I love the way buttons seem to finish off a lot of my quilts with a special touch.

  374. Margaret

    I like the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet.

  375. Gillian

    The MOther of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Rose Blossom Pin are my favourites but any of them would make a fun gift for a crafter

  376. SONJA HANSEN

    What fun for a button lover! I like especially like the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit and the Bright and Sassy Pendant kit.

    Thanks.

  377. Terri Porter

    My great-grandmother used to collect buttons and would make wall hangings in different shapes like the Statue of Liberty and the United States. I used to spend hours looking at her “Button Books” where she had sewn each button individually onto scrapbook pages and sorted them by color, style, or feature (military, animals, fruits). She was featured in the old farm magazine called “Capper’s Weekly” back in the 1950’s so that tells you how long I’ve been a “Button Aficionado”. I love the Autumn Stacked Pin or the Vineyard pendant. Thanks for bringing back memories!

  378. Bec Clarke

    Oh my goodness this book is on my wishlist.I love the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet and the Bright & Sassy Pendnat kit.

  379. Sherry Forsberg

    I would love to win all of the button prizes. Especially the pound of buttons. I love all kinds of buttons, and love using them in my projects. There are so many uses for buttons, not the least of which is displaying them in pretty containers in my sewing room.

They love the pretty buttons and new skill. They always make wonderful efforts to coordinate fabric pieces and the buttons! The lb of buttons would be well used! My preferences are kits #5110 , necklace. Love the colors which suits my colors; has the most unusual buttons and I crochet! The second preference is kit # 5116, pin; wonderful colors, very smart looking; I love pins.

  383. Vicki

  396. Mary Jo Gibbs

    I just happen to be playing with buttons today. Such fun. I love yo patterns and kits.

  397. Susan

    What a great gift idea!

    I really have a love of the mother-of-pearl buttons and the charm bracelet is lovely.

    I never stop being amazed at the deep joy a bunch of buttons can give me.

    thanks for finding all of these!

  400. Cindy Etchison

    Reading about this contest immediately caused me to think of my granddaughter, Amy. She is now 16 yrs old and when she was small she loved to sort through my button collection. She never seemed to grow tired of seeing the same buttons over and over. Today, Amy suffers from a syndrome called “Persistant Daily Headaches.” These headaches are quite debilitating and have been going on for 2 years. I believe she would still be delighted to have her own button collection and that the different colors, shapes and sizes would bring about some distraction from her constant headaches. For Amy, I would pick the Nature’s Drop Necklace and Asian Style Bracelet kits. Both would be perfect for a 16 yr old.

  401. Terri Applegate

    What a fabulous book. I love adventures in buttons. Whether digging in the button box with the grand kids or stashing my favorites away for making jewelry and displaying on professional button cards, I adore buttons. They are miniature works of art. The feel of running your hands in a bowl of buttons is therapeutic for me. Fortunately buttons don’t take up much room and are adaptable to any situation, elegant or common. As an antique dealer and appraiser I am exposed to unique and varied buttons in my business. It’s my passion to share these tiny treasures and preserve their art. I would love to add your book to my vignettes of buttons. Thanks you for sharing and inspiring us all.

  402. Valerie Mehner

    I’m a button addict also, And would love to win. I like to incorporate them in all my projects. Bless you for this contest. I can’t wait to get started on winter projects since my daughter’s wedding is over as of Saturday. Time to move on and get over the empty nest!!!

  403. Cindy Clinton

    I admit it, for the first time ever, I am a person who plays with buttons! I started as a child with my grandmother’s various jars of sorted buttons of “never to be wasted buttons”. I really played with them the most though when I worked at ye old Woolworth’s while I was in college in the late 80’s. I worked in their sewing department and when things weren’t busy or I was bored folding and filing other stuff, I would sort and organize the buttons’ display and really have fun with the loose ones that had fallen off their cards. When I worked the button department of the Woolworth’s sewing department in Bel Air, MD was the best looking department in the world!
    Thanks for the contest, I really like the Bight & Sassy Pendant Kit, (for the colors and for the future ideas I can use with my button collection), and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kit because it would be a project out of my comfort zone and I appreciate a really good challenge. Want the book Big Time too, Thanks, Cindy.

  404. Jeanie Presnall

    All the kits are great! I really like the button ware cluster bracelet kit. I’ve got buttons from when I was a child that my Mother saved. When I go to Junk shops or Antique shops or estate sales, I am always drawn to the buttons. They bring such a warm feeling of when I was a child, if only for just a few minutes.

  405. Judi Reiss

    Wow. I didn’t realize that I could choose two! Too many pain pqills to think well. I still love the vertical bracelet and I love the mother of pearl chief as well.

  406. Susan

    What fun are these ideas are!! I like the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet and the Rose Blossum Pin. I am keeping my fingers crossed to win this.

  407. Kim

    I like the Mother of Pearl bracelet kit. I love charm bracelets and buttons. This kit is FAB. I also like Natures Drop Necklace. These are awesome kits.

  408. Judi Reiss

    It really took me a while just pick the kit I would love to have. You really can’t pick just one! I think the vertical stacked bracelet would be perfect for me. Right this day I am a one armed bandit after shoulder surgery. That bracelet would be a great daughter and Mom or Nana and Deedles project.

  409. Mary H

    What fun is that!! I love buttons I use them a lot on my cards. But I have to say I love the mother of pearl bracelet and the blossom pin/pendant!! So cute!!

  410. Pamela Dorman

    I live in Australia and have been collecting buttons since you were able to buy them from op shops for just 10c. a large mixed jar, but now everyone wants them so they are harder to get.. “Buttonware” looks like a great book and if I had my pick of kits it would most certainly include Mother of Pearl charm bracelet (very chic) and Briiight and Sassy, for my granddaughter. Thanks for this opportunity.

  411. Marie Mitchell

    I love buttons too, two of my favorites are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Clay Swirl Pendant. I remember my mothers button collection, full of all sorts of different kinds of buttons, my favorite being a big clear glass button.

  417. Melissa

    Such a pretty book! I love buttons too and remember playing with my mom’s while she sewed when I was little. I like the Bright and Sassy Pendant and the Clay Swirl Pendant.

  418. sew2day

    I have inherited several tins of buttons from family members. I love to use them to decorate garments, but I never thought to use them as jewelry! I think the Crochet button pendant kit and the Nature’s cluster bracelet kit would be fun to make and wear. Merry Christmas to me!

  419. Kitty

    I love the vintage pendant kit and the rose blossom kit is a close second πŸ™‚ The book looks awesome–I’m a button lover, too!

  423. Brenda Roland

    I love all of the kits but the mother of pearl choker and the mother of pearl charm bracelet would be my choices.

  424. Pegi Sapp Burton

    Have loved playing with buttons as decoration for years ~ at least 15 years ago I covered the entire placket of a white blouse with buttons and received all kinds of compliments.. Love the idea of a book with other projects and really like the Diagonal Stacked Button. I love the old buttons that I have collected from old clothing and purchased over the years.. It’s just like playing and we all need that sometimes πŸ™‚

  425. Robin

    I love the shapes anc colors in the Natures cluster bracelet, and I also love the crochet button pendent- combining 2 of my favorite things to do, see, and share.
    Thanks for the giveaway.+

  426. Karen

    I like the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit for $24.90 #5124 .
    because it shows off the buttons to be what they are–little tiny works of art, expecially the antique ones. I also like the stacked Autumn broach. It gives you a kind of double-take, “are those buttons?? Cool!”
    I love the cupcake like bracelet project on the cover of your book too. Yummy!
    Karen

  427. Elaine Sessions

    I love the rose bloom pin, I collect vintage Christmas pins and love anything vintage and also adore the Natur’es drop necklace. I also like these because I have buttons in my own vintage button collection that would work well in these designs!

    Thanks.

  428. Sherri S.

    I liked the Bright and Sassy Pendant and the Diagonal Stacked Pin. Love the creations. And love the vintage buttons.

  434. Cathy Yamashita

    The book looks fantastic! I always cut the buttons off clothes before I toss them, and I keep al those extra buttons that come on sweaters & things. I love the Vertical Stacked Braclet and Bright and Sassy Pendant.

  435. Brandy

    I love the book and the kits! I think my favorite is the Mother of Pearl Vintage charm bracelet. I never thought of something so creative! I just love buttons and can’t wait to buy the book!

  436. Becky

    I love buttons!! My sister has even been making glass blown buttons that are extrememly unique. So many items can be made, but I like putting them in a canning jar and just looking at them., and occasionally using them for in an item for speciall people

  437. Nancy evans

    Bright and Sassy would be fun to share with my granddaughter & also love Nature’s Drop Necklace…but the truth is I love them all. Buttons have been a favorite of mine since I was a young girl. I would spend the summers with my grandmothers and could spend hours playing with ball jars full of buttons, if only had them today. You have brought back so many wonderful memories of my childhood. Thanks!

  438. Theresa

    I have loved buttons since I was a kid going through my grandmas buttons. I love the rose blossom pin kit! but really hard to choose I also like the Mother of Pearl Choker.
    xx fingers crossed!

  439. Marge Prewott

    What fun, beautiful kits you have. The Mother of Pearl Bracelet and Mother of Pearl choker really impressed me. I love buttons and have a button jar of my Mom’s that I used to play with as a kid.

    Winning these great kits would be a wonderful Christmas gift to me.

    Thanks so much for having this giveaway.

  440. Sharon Sandahl

    I like almost the first two I saw, the Natures cluster bracelet, and the Vertical Stacked Bracelet. They are all nice, but those two kits seems to scream ME the loudest : ^) I inherited my great aunts button box a LONG time ago, still have so many of them, I hate to use them, but should. There are some beautiful buttons there.

  441. Eileene

    OMG, I love it all !!!!! Hope I win , there is nothing I love more that buttons. The jewerly kits I hope to win are #5124 MOP Charm Braclet and #5112 Bright and Sassy Pendant. The book looks like a winner too. Oh I hope , I hope , I hope I win. hehehehe

  442. Julie

    Yah! Something to do with my JARS full of buttons!

  443. Meredith Arnold

    Love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Crochet Button Pendant kits. Great button designs in the kits!

  444. Regina Hobbs

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I’ve looked at before and just wasn’t quite ready to buy but then I would consistently peruse it at the next shop! I’m so fickle.The kit I am most interested in is the the Vertical Stacked Bracelet to use as a bookmark.

  445. Grace Keir

    I have always loved the vintage buttons that came from my mother and grandmother and especially those made of Mother of Pearl. So the Mother of Pearl Chocker (#5121) is my favorite kit. It will get me starting in using all those vintage buttons that I have already.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  446. Mark

    I too like buttons. The Asian Style and Nature Cluster are the two kits I would like to try. They look like they would be great gifts.

  447. Joy

    Your new book looks so interesting. I’ve looked at the fun things that are in it. I too, love buttons. I’m an old time fondler of beautiful buttons. I still have my mother’s and grandmother’s button boxes full of buttons and I’m not a young chick myself. It sure was hard to choose only two of your button kits. They are so cool. My top favorites are the Mother of Pearl CXharm Bracelet # 5124 and the Mother of Pearl Choker # 5121. Others that I really liked were the Diagonal Stacked Pin # 5118, Nature’s Cluster Bracelet #5126, Nature’s Drop Pendant #5110 and the Asian Style Bracelet #5128. Thanks for letting me be a part of this give away.

  448. Kris Martinez

    I love any new ideas that use crocheting – especially in jewelry. My favorite kits are the Crochet Button Pendant and Natures Drop Necklace. Great use of buttons – love them!

  449. Heather

    Button-aholics unite! A lovely giveaway! I like the Mother of Pearl Choker & Charm Bracelet kits the best…but all of them are truly lovely.

  450. Debbie Doughty

    Wow! What an awesome give away for button floozies like me! If I’m the lucky winner I’d like the Mother of Pearl bracelet and the Clay Swirl pendant. Thanks!

  451. Liz

    I love buttons and have for most of my life. When I was 3 or 4 years old my Grandmother would reward my good behaviour with a trip to the button box. I spent hours and hours, (I was a VERY good little girl) sorting, arranging, hiding and finding buttons. And I still enjoy looking at and fondling my buttons. Unfortunately, in one of our many corporate moves across the country the original button box was overturned and the majority of the buttons were lost on a highway between Arkansas and Texas. And that is why I would like to win the prize, a pound of buttons will keep me busy for many more years.
    Liz

  452. Genia

    I love buttons and charm bracelets! The Mother of Pearl charm bracelet is beautiful and the Rose Blossom pin is super cute. I have loved “playing” with buttons since I was a little girl engrossed in my Grandma’s button tin. Now I’m the Grandma and my grandchildren love my buttons!!!!! Oh, what fun!!!

  453. Lorraine

    It’s like being asked to pick a favoite child! The kits are all so much fun. But, being a bracelet fanatic, Nature’s Cluster and Mother of Pearl charm bracelet are probably my favoites. The cover of the book is so beautiful–I drool over it every time see it in the stores! Thanks for the opportunity

  454. Chris Z

    I think I’m having problems getting my post in. Sorry if this is a repeat. I def. would love the book to have creative ideas 24/7. Also love the Mother of Pearl and Natures’ drop. Love all your ideas! Thanks!

  455. Kath

    Kits galore! my first two choices are the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the nature’s drop necklace. But the list can go on & on….

  456. Jingle

    I would love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit and the Nature’s Drop Necklace kit. What a fun book! jinglesells at gmail dot com

  457. Kitty

    I think my choices would be the Mother of pearl Charm Bracelet and the Nature’s drop necklace. I have tons of buttons and would love to learn how to make my favorites into real treasures so the book sounds like it might be a favorite as well. I can’t wait to try. Here’s hoping that I get chosen this time. what a fun giveaway!!

  458. Jennifer Reynard

    Wow, am loving all the comments that I am reading. I am going to print them all and read them to my friends when I show them my buttons that I have saved. They think I am crazy but I see from this post, I have some “button collector Friends”. I would love to know a good way to display my oldest ones, as I would not wear them as a piece of jewelry for fear I would lose some of them. Your book looks fabulous and your collection of buttons are beautiful.
    If I had to pick a couple of sets, this is hard you know, I would probably go with the vineyard and the bright and sassy! What a fun post and giveaway. Good luck everyone!!!

  459. Michelle Souza

    I LOVE Buttons! and I LOVE to collect and make items with them. I have my grandmothers button tin (don’t use these) and I scour yard sales and thrift stores for them…my 12 year old daughter has started her own collection (after going through mine and taking some). I would love to get this book and kits…THANKS so much for the contest!

  460. CHRIS

    I LOVE BUTTONS!!!!! One of my fondest memories is of sorting through my Grandmother’s button tin. She had lots of unique/vintage buttons… rhinestones, art deco, etc. A few years ago, I made 100 heart shaped pins covered with buttons for a women’s retreat at our church. I love all the kits, but if I had to choose it would be #5118 and #5112.

  461. tammy walters

    I just love buttons,I’m always looking for the unique old vintage ones. Thank you for your books and kits for the ways we can use our collections. I like the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the nature bracelet.

  462. Amy - Amy's Creative Side

    How much fun is this book Amy! My mom has multiple jars full of buttons, that I loved to sort through as a girl. Buttons have always been a favorite notion! I love your mother of pearl bracelet, and the vertical stacked bracelet. Thanks for the chance!!

  463. Janet Simmons

    I love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit and the Nature’s Cluster Bracelet kit. I have been a bracelet wearer for years and would love to add these to my collection using another of my favorite collectibles! Wow what fun!

  464. Angela Smith

    I love the bright and sassy pendent and the mother of pearl choker. I love chokers. I still wished I had my grandmothers tin box of buttons. I would spend hours sorting through and matching or just running my hands through them. My favorites were the tiniest ones that I knew were cut from tiny baby clothes. The tinier the better. I always loved to poke through them and find the matches. I still have quite a collection of buttons. My favorites of today are the big Vintage style buttons.

  465. Eleanor Kurtz

    I love love love the Asian style bracelet kit and the rose blossom pin is beautiful too. I love making Kanzashi flowers. As beautiful as they are, most of the art is in the button I put in the center =)

  466. Lynne H

    I love buttons too, and have about 20 antique canning jars filled to the brim with them. I love the mother of pearl choker. It’s gorgeous!

  467. Lori Bisbee

    I love buttons also. I am collecting white ones now to cover a framed mirror. May take me years to get enough . I really enjoy your sites. thanks for all the ideas and treasures. Lori

  468. Marcia

    I have always loved charm bracelets so the the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit is the one I would do first. I have several family bracelets – my grandmother’s with 11 name charms of her children, Aunt Meg’s from the 1930’s, Mom and Aunt Maudie’s with some that I gave them. Looking at each charm brings back special memories.

  469. Ebru

    Love these kits!!! I use buttons to embellish so many things, cards, knitted scarves, and hair bows. My favorite is the mother of pearl charm bracelet kit!! That book is opening up a whole new world of button fun!!!

  470. CINDY KISER

    I am so excited that you have kits available. I love the crochet button pendant and nature’s drop necklace. Thanks for all the exciting projects to work on.

  471. Gay

    Have played with buttons since I was a kid…and that was a long time ago and I have a wonderful collection of them. Even played “jacks” with them. I love the Autumn Stacked pin.

  472. Angela Smith

    The mother of Pearl Choker and the Bright and Sassy Pendent are my two favorites if I have to choose. There are a thousand ways a button can be worn or made into an accessory. I just loved it when I grew up, my grandmother had a big tin of buttons that she collected through the years. I just loved spending hours looking at all the colors and shapes and finding the matches. What fond memories.

  473. DeeDee

    The kits are amazing! I love the MOP bracelet and the Vineyard Pendant.The book looks like it is full of fresh ideas. I NEVER pass up the opportunity to purchase a vintage button box ! Yes I admit it I NEED more buttons in my life! The bracelet
    kit brings back memories of my mother’s days making bracelets from her mother’s button collection. It’s in my DNA: Button Lover!

  474. Linda Case

    I just love buttons. I make christmas ornaments using old light blubs, plastic canvas yard and silver-gold buttons. Plus, wreaths with all white buttons and the list goes on and on. The Button Ware Jewelry kits are all beautiful and it was very hard to decide which I like the best. I will go with the Bright and Sassy Pendant which jump out at me with the bright colors and the Clay Swirl Pendant. I also love to make any kind of jewelry and would love to learn to use buttons.

  475. Sandy

    Your kits are awesome. I love pins and the Autumn pin is my fav.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    Sandy

  476. Peg White

    Ooooh! Kid in a Candy Store!
    If I have to choose only 2, I would go with the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and Bright and Sassy Pendant.

    The Mother of Pearl combines two of my favorite things:
    charm bracelets and the hint of watch faces.

    The Bright and Sassy works so well as a “faux” pendant, it looks like you could open it up and store something in it.

    Love buttons! Love button cards with their beautiful vintage images!

    Thanks!

  477. Christy H

    I LOVE buttons and love collecting them and displaying them in my pretty glass containers. I would love the book so I could put all those buttons I have to good use and my favorite kits are the Clay Swirl Pendant and the Rose Blossom Pin.

  478. Jeanne Mitisek

    Anyhing mother of pearl is my favorite (currently working on a cross stitch sampler that will include some vintage mother of pearl buttons from my collection). So, 5114 is a favorite. But,, I also like an organic, natural look. When I was in Maine this fall, I purchased a necklace made from locally quarried rocks. Favorite no. 2 is 5110, which had that feel. Thanks.

  479. Angela B.

    I would definitely love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet – so feminine! And the Autumn Stacked Pin would be noticed for sure! Thanks for the chance to win!

  480. Marty R

    I love the Mother of Pearl choker and the Asian style bracelet. I didn’t know you carried kits, so I appreciate the introduction. So very nice. Thanks for the giveaway. Kathie L in Allentown

  483. Jackie Clauson

    The Vineyard and Bright and Sassy caught my eye just because of the bright colors. I too have my buttons in an old ball jar, and that jar has yielded many a treasure. I sort through the buttons on occasion just to remind myself what I have, and, of course, for inspiration. It’s foggy, cold, and windy here today…a perfect day to stay home and get out some of that inspiration.

  484. Catherine Armstrong

    All of the kits are beautiful..but my favorite is the mother of pearl charm bracelet.

  485. Lynn

    Definitely the Vertical Stacked Bracelet! Very sophisticated looking! Not that I don’t like buttons – I love them1 – but I also like to see items used well in ‘crafts’ or ‘altered uses’ and this bracelet does that to a “T!”
    It has a very high quality look!

  486. Pat Burson

    I love all of your kits but would choose the Mother of Perl bracelet kit and the vertical stacked button kit. Wow! Pretty cool ideas of things to do with buttons! I use them alot for scrapbooking, cardmaking and I’ve also make a button bracelet with matching earrings: You ROCK!

  487. Pati Akers

    Wowzia!.Great contest!
    I also have a passion for buttons. Any kind of buttons! My favorite kit is the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet (5124) and my other favorite is the Rose Blossom Pin (5111). My passion leans toward vintage pieces but any button gives my heart a jump start. Thanks!

  488. Karen Diebolt

    What a wonderful giveaway. I love buttons, and I love bright colors so it is no surprise that the Bright and Sassy Kit is my favorite. I would love to win a pound of buttons to add to my growing button collection.

  489. Judy Tomenga

    I really like the univerality of the Mother of Pearl necklace. It can be dressed up or down and can be worn with other necklaces really well.

    That is also the same reason I like the Diagonal Stacked Pin. I would go great on winter coats/sweaters and can be worn with dressy items as well as jeans.

    I love how all of the kits showcase buttons…love finding ways to use more buttons.

  490. Deborah345

    button button who’s got the button
    I feel in love Nature’s Drop Necklace – Button Ware Jewelry Kit
    and the
    Crochet Button Pendent – Button Ware Jewelry Kit

    I enjoy buttons, they are fun little toys! πŸ™‚ I would pick the Rose Blossom Pin and the Crochet Button kits

  492. Donna Huisinga

    Bracelets are my thing, so I would have to say the stacked bracelet and the asian bracelet. I love buttons too and keep mine in a pink vintage jar on my window sill.

  493. molly

    i’m not usually into Asian but your Asian style braceleti so simple and classic. i’d love to win it… thanks for the oppurtunity, molly

  494. margie

    I would like the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the natures bracelet. oh so exciting!

  495. Kim Nicholl

    I love the Vinyard Pendant and the Nature’s Drop Necklace

  496. Marilyn Guidry

    Love the vintage buttons and have a lot of them on hand. Looking at the kits the Asian Style bracelet and the Autumn stacked pin appealed to me. I inherited my mother-in-law’s button box and there are some amazing buttons in it.

  497. Robin Crittenden

    HI,

    I just love buttons too. The Bright and Sassy called my name when I saw it.

  498. Karen F

    I love the Nature’s Drop necklace. Thanks!

  499. Paula Bush

    Boy! It was really hard to choose, but the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kit and the Vineyard Pendant Kit are my two choices…although I liked all of them! I am a button collector for 40 years…have put them on everything from denim jackets to purses and have some in vintage Ball jars just to look at them! So much fun meeting you at the Atlanta Country Living year before last…thanks for putting our pix on your blog. xxx

  500. Sheri Ceglarek

    I love love buttons. My fav of your Buttonware kits are the Rose Blossom Pin (my youngest daughter loves roses & Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet (which my mother will love) but I really love all of the Buttonware kits.

  501. Rebecca

    I can’t choose just two favorites, so my daughter did it for me. Her favorites are the Asian and Nature’s Drop. She’s 9 and already obsessed with buttons, like her mom! We have so many that we have collected for projects, but can’t bear to part with them. Your book would give us a reason to use them, yet still keep them close. Thank you for the opportunity to win the book and more lovely buttons!

  502. Dana Attwood

    I love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kit and the Nature’s Cluster Bracelet is great, too.

  503. Cindy Gilbrough

    One of my favorite activities as a child, and even into my teens, was to play with my mom’s button bag. I would sort them by size, color, or just line them up and feel them. My favorites were the glass ones. I have a huge button collection today. My daughters and I found a jewelry vendor at a craft fair last year and fell in love with her button necklaces. I told my jeweler friend, who usually makes “over the top” pieces that are quite expensive, and she sold button necklaces like crazy at our sale this year.

  504. Debbie Dora

    Are you kidding? I love them all! Buttons are so much fun and my imagination soars when I see the cute kits.
    I just adore the button crafts, great inspiration!! The Mother of Pearl bracelet kit is beautiful!!

  505. karen trott

    Buttons bring back memories. I remember removing buttons from any garment that was no longer wearable. There was a Button drawer in the sewing machine cabinet, Later there was the button jar, and then button jarS.
    Arlington Texas as a wonderful Button and Ribbon shop that is as much fun to peruse as a big city Library. I have on Button Jar with buttons from my Grandmother’s time as well as her Birdseye maple Singer treadle sewing machine..
    It was hard to select only 2 but if I could have only 2 they would be Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet # 5124 and the Diagonal stacked Pin # 5118. I enjoy your news letters, website and products.

  506. Nancy

    Would love to have the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit and the Mother of Pearl Choker kit! Add in the fabulous book and the pound of buttons and I would be like a kid at Christmas! πŸ™‚

  507. Patricia Gerbig

    I love the Mother of Pearl chocker. It can go with anything and in style today. The Vineyard Pendant I also like and are more like the buttons I was raised on . I have a round tin full that goes all the way back to my grandmother’s days. Mostly button taken off old worn out clothes. I used to buy buttons from Hancock’s sale ben and then match the material to go with the buttons. I have made ear rings from button too. I love buttons!

  508. Cathy

    All of the designs are wonderful but my favorite two are the mother of pearl choker and the crochet button pendant. I have so many buttons and these are wonderful new ideas to try! Thank you for this creative give-a-way.

  509. Darlene

    Such cool things to do with buttons!!! I loved running my fingers through my grandmas’ huge button basket….

  510. Rise St. Arno

    I love Nature’s Drop and Vineyard. Thanks

  511. Linda Blaker

    I have been crazy for buttons since i was a child! And have passed that love onto my grandchildren, who used to love to “sort” buttons for me!
    I’d love to try the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit & the Nature’s Drop Necklace! These buttonware kits are BRILLIANT! Love the book and will get it at some point!
    Thanks for the chance to win!
    Best Wishes~

  512. Lori

    The Buttonware book shows many exciting and fun projects that I would love to create. It brings back good memories of my mother’s button collection she lovingly used to create her sewing projects. Thank you for the chance to enter. Your projects are so wonderfully done and inspiring!

  513. Melinda Blom

    Who doesn’t love buttons? All the kits are great, I love the Mother of Pearl one because it shows off the beautiful buttons like little jewels.

  514. Theda

    i love buttons but the Mother of Pearl is my fav

  515. tamelyn feinstein

    I love all kinds of buttons, but I’ve always had a particular fondness for the iridescent shininess of mother-of-pearl. I would so love to win the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Mother Of Pearl Choker kits!

  516. Betsy Lute

    Amy, I too am a button addict. So many times while i am doing my thrift store hunts for great fabrics to reuse I am captivated by the buttons on some otherwise homely shirt or dress. Recently I hosted a “make some button charms” swap that came with great ideas for using buttons as charms. I chose the Brite and Sassy Pendant and the Vineyard pendent kits as my two… But why stop at two? I think i could wear buttons every day! Spread the news …snaps and velcro may be nice but buttons add style and are here to stay!

  517. Susan Lanctot

    What a fun book! I still love to play with buttons–it’s wonderfully relaxing to sort and admire them. I think the Mother of Pearl choker and the Nature’s drop necklace are gorgeous and would make a great birthday present for me!!!

  518. Beth J. Beal

    OH my goodness! I too am button addicted! When I was little we had an old trunk in the attic that belonged to my great-grandmother that was full of her sewing notions and I used to love to go through all the buttons! They were like precious coins to me and I sure do wish I had that trunk and all its goodies.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win these wonderful button related gifts. I would just love to have the Autumn Stacked Pin Kit and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit!

    Thank you!

  519. Maureen Grimes

    Buttons are wonderful, are different. I like pearls, but I like them all especialth vintage. thanks for the opportunuity

  520. Susan Lanctot

    What a fun book! I still love to play with buttons–looking and sorting is so much fun. I love the mother of pearl choker and the nature’s drop necklace. What a nice birthday surprise for me!!!

  521. Brenda Winkle

    My 2 favorites are the Mother of Pearl Choker and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. It was hard to choose. I adore buttons and use them in lots of my projects.
    Would absolutely love to win this give-away. What a fabulous Christmas gift it would be!!

  522. Debbie

    Thanks for promoting buttons! Buttons especially old ones warm the heart and bring back lots of memories! Thank you so much for your Vintage Notions books! I just love it!!!! Debbie

  523. Katrina H.

    I don’t know how you think we can choose 2. I can barely narrow it down to a category, and that would be bracelets!

  524. Kim

    I love the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet and the Vineyard Pendant . They are just beautiful. Thank you Amy for all the great ideas.

  525. Amy Gale

    My fellow Amy, I love all of the button kits…..what’s not to love about buttons. They are absolutely charming. They can take the most drab sewing project and lift it up to the heavens! Old, new, funky, kitschy, beautiful, colorful….love them all; like little, tiny works of art!

  526. Rebecca O

    So hard to choose but I would say the mother of pearl charm bracelet.
    Thanks!

  527. Joy Worn

    I am a button collector who loves to find new ideas to use my buttons with. I liked 5214 the MOP Charm Bracelet and 5127 the Vinyard Pendant the best. Your book goes on my Christmas list if I don’t win.

  528. marie

    I love the Vineyard Pendant and the Nature’s Drop necklace! I have to agree with you, there’s nothing more relaxing then sorting through all your buttons on a cold afternoon. I keep mine in recycled candle jars. They’re all lined up on top of my craft bookshelf for me to see.

  529. Nancy Knight

    Amy,
    So generous of you to offer this giveaway, so hard for a button addict to choose! I guess my favorite kit is the mother of pearl charm bracelet. I have been collecting buttons for over 30 years and it still makes my heart palpitate when I spy a jar or basket of buttons in an antique shop or flea market. I have them all sorted by color in a printers cabinet and jars used as decor throughout my home. Thanks for a chance to win!

  530. Lolly

    I love buttons and I’m somewhat of a collector, so this give-away is right up my alley!!! Love the ideas.

  531. Patti

    I’m a minor button collector, too, but have loved buttons since playing in my mother’s button box (which I now own and cherish). Looking through this old button box, I find buttons from old nightgowns and dresses, and bring back wonderful memories. I love my collection and almost hate to part with any of my “finds,” but I would love to have more ideas about how to use my buttons so your book sounds like just the thing! I can’t wait to get it! I wear pins all the time and so like the Rose Blossom and Autumn Stacked Pin kits.

  532. Beth

    The Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit would be my choice for sure. I have been wanting to sort out my huge button collection, mostly inherited from several grandmas who no longer sew. I love buttons and crafts from them!

  533. Alice Hancock

    What great ideas! Its a tough choice, but the Vineyard Pendant is my favorite.

  534. Kim Pilarski

    I have always loved buttons, too! When my grandma passed away, she had a jar that I loved to play with that was given to me. The Mother of Pearl bracelet and the Rose Blossom pin remind me of her.

  535. Carol C.

    What a great giveaway! I think it would be fun to have a few of these cute projects to work on when I visit my granddaughters. They love learning to sew and do projects with me. I think the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet kit and the Asian Style Bracelet kit would be perfect. I had a button bracelet when I was a young girl and sure wish I still had it!! Thank you for the chance to win these kits and the book!!

  536. Donna Joy

    Thanks for sharing your love for buttons. I to love them. The kids at school were gluing buttons on picture frames. I saw some gorgeous buttons that I wanted to take off and keep.
    I have some of grandma’s buttons and would love the book so that I could use some of those creative ideas in the book.

    I liked the Natures Drop necklace and the clay swirl pendant.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  537. Nancy Jones

    I love buttons!! I remember looking through my Granny’s jar of buttons. I love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit and the both of the Stacked Pin kits. They also remind me of my grandmothers and my mom.

  538. D'Ann

    I love the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the mother of pearl choker kits. I am a button-lover, too! Thanks for the inspiration and the giveaway!

  539. Robi

    What a great book and kits! My two faves would have to be the mother of pearl bracelet and the pendant. I love the idea of a kit to give you detailed instructions and have everything together for your first button project!

  540. Bonnie Cuneo

    The 2 kits I like the most are the diagonal stack pin and the natures drop necklace. I too, have the basket of old buttons that are a source of pleasure for me to sift through.

  541. Tammy

    Wow! Thanks for the opportunity to win thisgreat kit! I really like the Vineyard pendant and the Rose Blossom kit. I have collected buttons since I was a young child. I just love them.

  542. Wanda

    Love those buttons can’t have enough. All of the kits were great, great ideas.

  543. Paula

    Old buttons take me back to my childhood in Indiana, and memories of my dear mother’s button box. Buttons have the power to remind us of gentler times gone by! The Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet is my favorite (along with alot of other viewers) and the Rose Stacked Pin looks delightful. Thank you for inspiring me, and for the chance to win something so beautiful.

  544. tricia

    I love clay swirl and rose blossom, and I love those names too. Thank you for the chance to win!

  545. Terri Jones

    This is such a fun contest. I would love to win Nature’s Drop Necklace and Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. They would go with so many of my outfits. Not to mention the book and buttons to play with!

  546. Lesli Fields

    My favorites have to be the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Crochet Button Pendant. I’m not an avid collector, but I’ve always had a certain love for buttons and since I sew, I do have a small stash.

  547. Sandra Beck

    Mother of Pearl are classic. The bracelet is beautiful as is the Mother of Pearl choker. I have jars & boxes of buttons some passed down others picked up or purchased here & there. So glad to see a book on buttons. Thanks. Great prize package. Merry Christmas Ya’ll.

    I love buttons!!!! There is a neat store in Chicago that had antique buttons and it was lovely. And the button cards are just as wonderful and inspiring.!! My two fav are the Rose one and any of the jewelry ones. Bless u for sharing this!!!

  550. L. deGuire

    Buttons are such wonderful little treasures. Your book will inspire many to create their own treasures. I would have a difficult time choosing from all the kits but would have to settle on the MOP bracelet and the Rose blossom pin. A pound of buttons would just be icing on the cake!

  551. Rosa Marie

    Oh, I really had a HARD TIME trying to figure out which 2 I loved. I loved them all! But I picked Mother Of Pearl charm bracelet and Vineard Pendant.

  552. Kenna R

    My favorite is the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit Γ’β‚¬β€œ 5124! I once bought all of the buttons from an auction of a clothing store… Love them!!

  553. Kerry

    I like the Bright and Sassy Pendant and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet!

  554. Jacque

    With so many choices, it is hard to pick just one favorite, but I do love the Bright and Sassy Pendant kit. I have always loved buttons and have a lot of them, so the Buttonware book is wonderful!
    I think it is fun to see my granddaughter play with a large bowl of buttons, just as I did when I was a girl. I guess we just don’t outgrow that and, really, who wants to!

  555. Wendy P

    I love vintage buttons! My favorite thing to do when I was a child was to visit my grandmother and play with the buttons in her button box. I guess I would choose the mother of pearl charm bracelet as a reminder of those days. Thank-you!

  556. Mary Mac

    I am so glad to hear I am not the only person addicted to buttons. These kits are so cute, I like the Vineyard Pendant kit and the Vertical stacked braclet kits. When ever I can: I use vintage buttons on blouses and sweaters.

  557. Maria Luhrman

    I love the Asian button kit and the mother of pearl kit. Buttons are so small but always have such a big impact. Love, love, love the buttons!!

  558. Rene Mewes

    I love the Clay Swirl Pendant and the Vineyard pendant. Such pretty colors! Thanks for the contest. I also have a button addiction!

  559. dana hayes

    This looks like a lot of fun. One of my favorite things to look at while at my Grandma’s was her button box. Great memories. I would like to try the Crochet Button Pendent, and the Rose Blossom Pin.

  560. Donna Elaine

    Hello Amy!
    I Love all of the kits, each one looks great, But I would really like to try the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet kit and I would also like the Rose blossom kit .Thank You for this lovely giveaway!

  561. Roselynn Kohler

    Hi, I don’t know when I became addicted to vintage, but I love the look. As a matter of fact, my home was built in 1955 and I am refurbishing it in the vintage style especially the kitchen. I was lucky enough to go to a flea market and found a 1940 Hoosier cabinet! It is white and the paint is flecking off. I later found the exact size flour siffter that was needed to make it complete. What does that tell you? I have a collection of table clothes, dollies, pictures and buttons! You would truely love to see my collection of buttons! I would love to add to my stash, I hope I win.

  562. Betsy Edwards

    WOW! I adore buttons! I have been collecting them for years – old, new, vintage, glass, horn, m-o-p, metal, wooden, plastic … I really look forward to trying some or your ideas. If I could choose 2 of the new button kits (I’d really like to have them all, of course), I’d opt for the diagonally stacked pin kit and the mother of pearl charm bracelet (I covet charm bracelets, too!).

  563. toni pastory

    Amy, I love your book-I am also endlessly, wonderfully addicted to collecting buttons, especially vintage ones….I am never so happy as when I’m plopped down, rifling through a button box! I have made various pieces of jewelry with my buttons, but the ones I enjoyed the best are the pins. So my favorite kit is the Autumn splendor pin; I love the asymetrical look that it has-JHB has always had the best in modern and vintage buttons. I wish me luck!

    Buttonville

  564. Sue Munn

    Love all the button kits–but my favorites are the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet and the diagonal stacked pin. I love button jewelry!! Have lots of old buttons from my grandma.

  565. Roselynn Kohler

    Hi, I don’t know exactly when I fell in love with “vintage”, but it has been a long time. I once went to a yard sale and there were jars of vintage buttons. The cost was what ever we could donate!
    what a deal! Since then I have been going to estate sales and collect whatever is on sale. Just too much fun! I would love to win this contest to add more buttons to my stash. I am retired, but have disabilities from my back to my shoulder. But that doesn’t stop me from doing some of the things I love like sewing, piecing quilt tops, crafting and whatever.
    Just too much fun!

  566. Lynne Hurlburt

    Our card group has used a button on every card with share with each other. We had bought some rather expenseve buttons a few years ago and I asked one of the girls ” have you used any of those buttons yet” and she replied ” no, I haven’t found anyone BUTTON WORTHY yet” :o) So from then on all of us have put a button on our cards to each other. A couple of the girls, have made bracelets and collages with them to. Would love to win the book to see other ways to use buttons. Have a good one. Hugs n’ Stuff, Lynne

  567. marlis

  568. Rene Marquis

    The Asian Style bracelet looks so elegent, and the Nature’s Cluster bracelet reminds me of our beautiful Olympic Mountain Range in in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you for showing us some great ways to use these beautiful, fun, and amazing buttons we find in our grandmothers’ button boxes and flea markets!

  569. claudia

  570. e butler

    i would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. I love buttons and have decorated with them for years. When i’m able to find vintage buttons still on their cards, I have great plans for a display. Bracelets are so fun to wear and one with buttons is, well, PERFECT!!! thanks for a chance at this.

  571. Chris

    Hi Amy:
    I rec’d my grandma and my moms buttons years ago and have been collecting Antigue and vintage buttons since then. I already have your wonderful book and made several bracelets and a large batch of button pins. I use techniques that retain the integrity of the vintage buttons. I’d love to win the pound of buttons to make more bracelets, pins and move on to necklaces. I will be retiring in 2012 and look forward to making many more then! Keep up the great work!

  572. Mary Jane

    I have a nice collection of buttons from when I used to sew years ago. I would love to use them in a creative way. Your book looks great!

    Beyond Measure
    Tammy

  576. Mary Pacey

    My deceased relatives have contributed unknowingly to my addiction of button collecting. I still can not pass up unsual buttons when in a fabric store!! I have the buttons color-sorted in old canning jars (easy to view). The two kits I liked the best was the Mother of Pearle Charm Bracelet (a mature woman’s charm bracelet) and the Diagonal Stacked Pin. Thanks for the chance to win something so wonderful.

  577. Chris

    Oh, buttons! How I remember playing with the buttons my Aunt had when I was a little girl. Everytime I see buttons at garage sales or look at my stash, it reminds me of my Aunt who lived to be 95 yrs. old. It’s funny how certain things stay with you growing up. Winning this would be an added touch to the memories.

  578. Lucie

    I love them all! After lengthy deliberation, I choose Asian Style & Narure’s Drop.

    I remember playing so much in my mom’s button basket and when I started to sew, I never had to buy buttons – I could always find what I wanted in her basket.

    Now, whenever I pass by a button shop, I can’t resist going in to find that specialty button(s) that begs me to take them home!

    I had never seen this kits before – thanks for the chance to try them out!

  579. Mia

    I love them all!!

  580. Denise

    I like the Clay Swirl Pendant and the Nature’s Drop Necklace. They are all neat and would make great gifts for friends (or myself πŸ™‚ ).
    Thank you for the chance to win.

  581. Cathy S.

    Got my fingers crossed…and my toes, that the winner is me!! Thanks for hope of winning such a nice prize

  582. Suzy Swetz

    I love buttons and have some from my grandmother from the “20s” and “30s.” I especially like the mother of pearl choker and nature’s drop necklace.

  583. Diane

    Who doesn’t love buttons? My favourite kit is the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet.

  584. tonya

    i love buttons too! i’d like the book please.

  585. Jann

    Hi Amy–I love vintage buttons–every time I go into an antique store, the first things I look for are buttons! One elderly lady who owns an antique store here in my town takes old mother-of-pearl buttons and puts them into vintage glass salt shakers and displays them for sale, with old hat pins stuck in the top holes of the shakers. Very cute idea . . . Unfortunately, old buttons are getting harder and harder to find, and when you find them, they are often expensive! My mother had an old tin button box that we girls used to play with when we were little. I love the shell choker kit and the clay swirl pendant kit. The book looks like it would be so much fun to look at and to read. Thanks for a chance at your generous giveaway!

  586. lauraluvsloons

    I love it all, the buttons, the two kits and the book for some fun, fresh ideas to use with all the buttons I’ve been collecting over the years. So far I’ve only used buttons as embellishments for my appliqued and embroidered quilts (think Henrietta Whiskers from Bunny Hill). Now I think I’m ready to expand button use to a whole new level!

  587. Sheila

    I have been obsessed with buttons forever! My MIL did upholstery in her home many, many years ago and she had tons of buttons for furniture projects as well as scads of other sewing projects. She gave me a huge tin of buttons and eye hooks and other notions that many are still on the original cards with their prices! I can’t part with them. The loose buttons yes and I’ve been seeing so many wonderful things made with them. I have gather several misc jars of buttons along the way too.
    Would love a book that has some ideas for use of buttons. Thanks for a chance to enter.

  588. Mary Sue Lewis

    I love buttons, too. I look for them whereever I go! So far my only project with them has been to cover a frame with white buttons, and it looks beautiful! I like the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the rose blossom pin kits!

  589. Betsy

    The book looks fabulous! I sure wish I had my mother’s button collection. I do not know what happened to it.

    I love the all of the projects but am most intrigued by the Nature’s Drop necklace.

  590. Karen Parsons

    I have loved buttons since i was a little girl! and still collect them from every trip we take.
    What a fun giveaway this would be. Natures drop necklace and autumn’s stacked pin are my favorites
    thank you for the chance to win buttons!

  591. Annie Lindsey

    I have just recenty inherited a button collection from my mother which included what she inherited from her mother. I’m guessing this is where I also inherited my love of buttons…would you think?! This great looking book appears that it could help inspire me with ways to get the buttons out of their miriade of containers and out into a wonderful world of display, admiration and just plain visual enjoyment. I’d love to try the Rose Blossom Pin and Nature’s Cluster Bracelet kits. Wish me luck!
    Thanks, Annie

  592. Linda Kernodle

    PS

    I like all of the button projects.

  593. RazzBari

    Would have to be two of the bright & sassy pendants and then I’d have to order 2 more to outfit my quartet – that would go with several of our outfits!

    I just went through my button stash last weekend – lots of vintage buttons from my grandmothers and estate sales, just not enough time to do everything I’d like with them!

  594. Brenda Sanderson

    I’ve loved buttons all my life. I remember playing and sorting my grandma’s buttons in her many jars as a liitle girl. I’ve also used buttons for learning tools in my Special Ed. classes over the years. One of the most fun projects I put together for a pirate school unit was a real treasuer chest using odds and ends but mostly buttons. What joy it gave me to watch the children of all ages play and discover the many objects within the chest. What a wonderful idea to make wearables out of buttons.

  595. Carole K

    I was given my grandma’s button box, which was an old Hostess Fruitcake Tin (1940’s), and along with the buttons, there were fun treasures inside! Her measuring tape-red plastic case, retractable; red dice, a glass stopper to a vinegar cruet, a small barrette with a scottie dog. The colors and textures are really mesmerizing as well as colorful! i love the Asian Style Bracelet, and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet

  596. Linda Kernodle

    I would love to win. I must confess that I am a button hoarder. I have jars filled with buttons. Nooo. I do not use them. They are to look at. I am obsessed! I need more.

  597. Susan Vigansky

    I am a button lover too!!!!

    I would pick the Nature’s Drop pendant necklace &
    the crochet button pendant………………….

    I’d love the pound of buttons!!! Button Bliss!!

  598. Patty Ojeda

    I love buttons! But I never knew you could make jewerly with buttons! I am having a DUH moment! I would choose the Nature’s Cluster Bracelet kit and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win!

  599. Vicki H

    I love the buttonware kits. Too awesome but my two faves are the Nathures cluster and the stacked bracelet. Nice giveaway!

  600. Judy Clayton

    I also like to collect old buttons and search for them one I visit antique shops when I travel. I like the Diagonal and Autumn stacked pins and the Nature’s Drop Necklace. The earth tones appeal to me.

  601. diane rehacek

    I just love buttons. I hunt for them at flea markets all the time. I like to imagine what kind of garment they came from and the people wore them. Would love to try the Nature’s drop and the Crochet Button Pendent Drop.

  602. star mead

    I would love to win the mother of pearl bracelet kit and the autum stacked pin kit. I too remember the button box my mother had. It was fun just to look thru the buttons. I attend auctions and when I can I buy the old buttons. Just got some that were real small. Hope to win a pound of yours Too! Thanks for the chance.

  603. Johanna

    Oh my goodness! Buttons are so addicting. I think my aunt is the crazy button lady in our family. I’m a close second though! They are so easy to sneak into the house too – unlike fabric that takes up so much room! I love the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet and the choker too.

  604. Cheri Hage

    Hi~ Thanks for the chance ! My picks would be the Clay Swirl Pendant and Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kits. Creative and Fun-looking πŸ™‚

  605. Beverly Foreman

    I Like the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Diagonal Stacked Pin. I hope I am lucky!!

  606. Rita J

    I have a big pickle jar full of buttons too pretty to get rid of, your book would be a great way to do something nice with the buttons. I really like the mother of pearl charm bracelet.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  607. Wendy Reuther

    I remember being fascinated with my mother’s button basket as a child, and now I have my grandmother’s and my mother’s button collections, as well as my own, filling various jars, used as filler in a hurricane glass vase with a candle, and always ready for a search for the perfect button for my granddaughter’s dress.

    I love the idea of making jewelry with buttons, and I especially like the mother-of-pearl charm bracelet and the lacy shell choker. Thank you for the chance to win them!

  608. Tammy Haman

    I love the Asian Style Bracelet and Nature’s Cluster Bracelet. Thanks!

  609. PattyBrown

    I love buttons and have so many of them but never know exactly what to do with them.
    I really like the Bright and Sassy and the Clay Swirl.
    Hope I win so I can start be creative!

  610. Kim

    Buttons are a girl’s best friend!! You can never have to many. I love the Mother of Pearl Choker and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. Beautiful, simple, and vintage looking!

  611. Marsha S.

    I love, love, love BUTTONS! I have jars of them all over the house. I get them at yard sales, antique stores, on ebay, really anywhere that I can find them I have been really eager to make a charm bracelet, so I was excited to see the Mother of Pearl Charm Braclet (5124) here! I would love to make that for my Granddaughter for Christmas!

  612. Margo

    Buttons are amazing. What a story they tell. Anyone who has there relatives collecion in a tin cake pan has an irreplaceable place of history. I remember when we had buttons made from real ivory and real sharks teeth and bone. I always hunt for buttons, my fav haunts are antique shops and vintage clothing. I might harvest some good lace off of a garment but I am buying the garment for the buttons. Then I make new vintage looking accessories and add the buttons. My favs are the colored rhinestone buttons. The are so special with new silk ribbon on purses, hats, pinafores, aprons, sachets. A cute light switch for a sewing room is covered with buttons. Amy, you are a genius.

  613. Bettina Groh

    Love buttons!! I have a friend who just collects buttons… not special ones etc. but just to get the number higher. She almost to 100,000 ! But I like old ones. I found a set of WWII Canadian Women’s armed services buttons up in Nova Scotia!!
    I like the vintage pendant kit and the vertical stacked bracelet kit! Would love to win!

  614. Lynn Palmertree

    I love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit. I am also a lover of buttons, starting from a very young age. And I love Mother of Pearl buttons. I have used many of them on some of my Heirloom creations in the past. I also love antique buttons, especially the glass ones. Thank you for giving everyone an opportunity to win one of your lovely kits.

  615. Ann

    Your book is on my Christmas wish list. My favorite Buttonware kits are the MOP charm bracelet and Nature’s Drop necklace.

  616. Corrine Ann

    I love old buttons too! Hard to pick just two favorites as I liked them all. I did finally settle on Verticle Stacked Bracelet and Vineyard Pendant! This is a wonderful prize package for Button Lovers!
    Merry Christmas to All !

  617. Doris Webb

    Just arriving back from the coast of Mississippi to visit family for Thanksgiving to way up here where we have Lake Erie, both the Mother of Pearl kits make me think of the beautiful water and home! Vintage should be all about memories and what better way than with buttons and the glow they have.

  618. Shellie Fontana

    BUTTON BLAST, oh my! Your Buttonware Book is the BEST, Amy! I made a stacked button Christmas Tree pendant for my sister, after seeing an inspiring article featuring you in a magazine. I used salvaged buttons that were passed on to my mother from her mother and my dad’s aunt. If those buttons could talk, they would share wonderful stories of making a living on tennant farms, building a church for a rural community, and re-making suits to pass down to younger brothers. I would love to make and wear the very feminine mother-of-pearl charm bracelet, and also the stacked diagonal pin. Thank you for sharing your creations that bring so much happiness to our lives, Amy!

  619. Elaine R

    I absolutely love the Mother of Pearl Charm Braclet kit. I’ve been in love with Mother of Pearl, since the 60’s, when I was in high school. This would be another beautiful piece.

  620. Nadine

    I LOVE buttons. I inherited my husband’s mother’s buttons and have no clue as to their meaning, but that doesn’t bother me at all. I have them and they are in an ancient tin.

    What do I like as to the kits: All of them. But I picked out the Stacked Bracelet #5125 and the Vineyard Pendant #5127. They are all so beautiful. And the book: So many wonderful ideas!

    I am so grateful that I can enter this contest. Thanks, and I sure hope I win!

    Nadine

  621. Beth

    I, too, am powerless against the call of buttons! I love them, always have. I LOVE all the kits, but am especially enamored of the Mother of Pearl bracelet and the Rose Blossom Pin! What fun is this?

  622. Judy

    Amy, I too have inherited some wonderful buttons, but it is the “Autumn Stacked” pack that interests me. Thank you for all the neat ideas you give to us crafters every day of the year!

  623. Susan Irwin

    I love buttons! I have collected them for a long time and have always wanted to use them in a clever and attractive way. They remind me of my great-grandmother and her sewing skills. She always kept buttons from old clothes and coats to be used later for something. She was very practical. Sometimes she used them on the doll clothes she made for me. I’m 65 now and still have all those doll clothes. I enjoy making things too and would love to win the book, kits and buttons. My two favorite kits are the mother-of-pearl charm bracelet and the natures drop necklace. Thanks for this contest.

  624. Linda

    So many pretty kits…my favorites are the Rose Blossom Pin and the Bright and Sassy Pendant. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  625. Nadine Nakano

    Nature’s drop necklace- it looks like an interesting way the buttons are put together in a necklace- also the Asian bracelet, it looks like there is a little macrame like in there—-what a great way to use one’s favorite buttons that we all hang on to for the right project. They are all really nice. Your book looks beautiful.

  626. Maria Neill

    OHHH!!! I am a LOVER of buttons! I have some heirloom ones that I have used for all my grandchildren…passed on from their great-grandparents, to their grandparents and then their Mothers to them….. I never thought that I (an older woman) would say..PLEASE PICK ME!!!!!
    And many thanks for your generous offer!
    Maria

  627. Sue

    what a wonderful give-a-way, thank you so much. I LOVE the mother of pearl bracelet & asian style bracelet. super fun.

  628. Marcia D

    I love the surprise of the beauty that buttons create when put together. I remember playing with my mother’s button basket while she was sewing on her old Singer, and I have created one of my own, which my sons ignored!! Many years ago I bought several pairs of earrings made with vintage WWII era buttons from Europe. They are so unique. My favorite kits from your website are the Vertical Stacked Bracelet, and the Bright and Sassy Pendant.

  629. Debbie Painter

    I so love buttons, & am just getting started with my collection, so this would be such a wonderful addition!!! The 2 kits I liked most are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kit & the Crocheted Button Pendant Kit!!! They are all Heavenly!!! Thank you so much for a chance to win!!!!

  630. Brenda Williams

    Ooh, I love buttons, too. I love the rose button pin. Very hard to choose! Thanks for your generosity!

  631. WyseWoman

    Hello, Amy! My name is Toni, and I am addicted to buttons also. I have a treasure trove already, courtesy of an auction, but one can NEVER have enough buttons! I have already purchased the Vineyard Pendant (5127), but I’d LOVE to try the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet (5124) and the Nature’s Drop Necklace — the buttons look sooo interesting! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity, and keep on with the business of creativity and inspiration. We’ve got to keep the past relevant for the future of needlework and sewing. Thanks again!

  632. Meredith H

    I’m finally doing my bucket list vintage linens projects and love the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet kit. The MofP are perfect with vintage!

  633. Nadine Nakano

    Nature’s drop necklace- it looks like an interesting way the buttons are put together in a necklace- what a great way to use one’s favorite buttons that we all hang on to for the right project. They are all really nice, but if we had to choose just one, I chose this one.

  634. Donna

    I’m especially loving the Nature’s Drop Necklace and Asian style bracelet- but all of them are great ideas!

  635. Cindy Farmer

    My favorite kit is the Rose Blossom Pin kit. I love the idea of a kit. It makes it so much easier to find all the parts!

  636. Karen

    I thought I was the only person who horded button! I’ve been known to buy clothing items (resale, of course) just for the buttons. These projects are very inspiring!

  637. Karen

    I love buttons. I love them so much that I buy them even when I don’t have a specific use for them. I have my mother’s button jar and her unused button stash that we found after she passed – some really cool buttons there! I’ve looked at your book several times and thought, maybe next month. Your Vertical Stacked Bracelet and Bright & Sassy Pendant are my favorites. Thanks for the chance for such a wonderful prize. (And even if I don’t win, I may have to give in and just buy that great book myself!)

  638. launie_m

    One of tout most treasure family heirlooms is a huge jar of buttons that my Great Grandmother saved. Having lived through the Depression era she never wasted anything, ever! Even the jar they were stored in was part of a former butter churn.
    We have spent many hours sifting and sorting through the jar like pirates with a treasure. Telling family stories to the kids and most of all making more memories!

  639. Terri Sue

    it would have to be the mother of pearl charm bracelet.

  640. Sylvia Mormile

    Buttons! Buttons! I love them all! I lost all of my buttons when Hurricane Opal hit Florida in 1995. I still find them in the yard after all these years. I have missed having those beautiful buttons that I collected over fifty years. I like all of your kits, but especially the Mother of Pearl choker and bracelet. I can hardly wait to get your new book. I enjoy your other books and website so much. Sylvia M.

  641. KelleyAnne

    Oh Goodness, I love them all! The Rose Blossom Pin and the Asian Style Bracelet would have to be my top two picks. The rose Blossom pin for my little self ( I adore it!) and the Asian Style bracelet for my friend who loves all things Asian Γ’β„’Β₯ I would love to make that for her. She would be so thrilled! The thought of embellishing with buttons gives me a buzz!

  642. Barb Bennett

    I love the lacy crochet button kit and the Nature Drop kits. I LOVE buttons and appreciate all the great creative ideas you share!
    Barb

    My mother has always collected buttons so I came by this love of buttons from a very young age. I really love your mother of pearl charm bracelet. It would be so much fun to wear.

  644. Kelly Roberts

    I love buttons! The book would be fabulous. Also, I especially like the Bright & Sassy Pendant Kit and the Rose Blossom Pin Kit in the Buttonware kits. This is a wonderful giveaway. Thank you!

  645. Debbie Parks

    I have a large button collection and my grandson
    loves to play with Nana’s buttons.

  646. Stephanie V

    What a generous offer! I too love the Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet. I also like the Nature’s Drop Necklace.

  647. Lisa H. from KY

    What a great book this must be!! And the kits should be so handy for instant gratification. I’m sure it would take me an hour to pick out whichof my buttons to use for a project. I have a three pound tin I keep buttons in. I’ll occasionally get it out and just run a hand through the buttons. Over and over again, I plunge my hand in and am amazed at what ends up on top. In my button stash is my “Mamaw’s” buttons, my Mom’s buttons and my buttons. Many of them, I can tell you right where they came from. Others, well they’re just so darned unique, I can make up stories to go with. I’ve always thought that there should be something fun and wonderful I could do with my button treasures rather than leave them in the tin. How cool would it be for me to make jewelry with instructions from your book and buttons from my life? And how much more cool would it be if I were wearing a piece and someone asked me about it? I could tell them the story behind the design (winning your book) and the story of the buttons. Ahhhh, daydreams are so fun!! I am having a terribly hard time trying to pick my favorite two kits. They all have so much character! I guess I will have to pick The Nature’s Cluster Bracelet kit and the Nature’s Drop Necklace kit. Thanks to you and JHB International for a chance at winning these prizes.

  648. Sherry

    Sorry my two favorite kits are Crochet Button pendant and Mother of Peral Charm Bracelet

  649. Leslie McNeil

    I love the kits! Making a choice… a kit for the crochet button necklace is probably my first choice. Thanks for the chance!

  650. Sherry

    Thank you for such an amazing imagination! I have such a collection of buttons and this would be a perfect way to showcase some of the unusual ones. You have taken buttons to a new level!

  651. Karen W.

    Amy, I love the kits. I’m a sucker for mother of pearl, so I would love to win the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Kit. I also really like the Crochet Button Pendant kit. Thanks for the opportunity!

  652. Loony Lady

    The clay swirl pendant and the crochet stacked one right next to it would be my first choices. BUT, you really know how to challenge a button lover by asking her to choose!.

  653. Diane

    What fun! My favorites are the Vineyard Pendant and the Mother-of-Pearl Charm Bracelet. I love buttons, too. I used to spend hours playing with my grandma’s button tin.

  654. Nancy M.

    I have a large container of buttons that began with my mother’s buttons, an elderly neighbor lady who was our babysitter and buttons I have accumulated. The idea of using them in creative ways is exciting. I like the Mother of Pearl bracelet and the diagaonl stacked pin.

    • Linda P

      I love the idea that someone else is sorting buttons. I alway sort in a pie pan, just like my Grandma did. My husband gets involved, too. I would love to win the Natures’ Cluster bracelet and the autumn stacked pin. Thanks for sharing your interest with us.

  655. CJ Armstrong

    Ohhhhhh!!! Buttons! I’m in love with buttons!!!
    And I would LOVE the “Mother of Pearl” Charm bracelet . . . just because of the charms and its pearly beauty. And I LOVE the “Nature’s Drop” Necklace . . love the colors and the intricate “button”.
    Thanks for the oppportunity!!

  656. Kristi

    the Clay Swirl Pendent and the Vertical Stacked Bracelet would be the 2 I pick first, but the others are just as beautiful!

  657. Cheryl Gunderson

    Years ago, I happened across an old-time “dime store” that had a huge bin of buttons that were super old, and still on their original cards. I was so delighted. I even found some that I could use for wheels on a Noah’s Train baby quilt I was making. It seemed like it was meant to be that I found that store! I love pins, and have made many that incorporate buttons. I really love both the Diagonal Stacked and Autumn Stacked pins. Great designs and colors, and something I would definitely wear! Thank you for a chance to win!

  658. Julie L

    I LOVE buttons, too! My favorites are the Vinyard Pendant and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. Both are so pretty!

  659. Helen

    I love buttons also and I love all your kits and the book.

  660. Loony Lady

    I have glass jars of buttons, baskets of buttons still on cards, boxes of buttons in plastic envelopes from garments I purchased eons ago and that have probably been worn out or passed along. I do use them on my art projects and purses but only after I have touched each to say ‘ thank you for giving my such pleasure’. And still I yearn for more. Sinful, I suspect, but harmless. Please, please I am ready for more.

  661. Chris Beresford

    Thanks for the wonderful drawing! One cannot have too many charm bracelets can one? I adore the Mother of Pearl set. The bracelet and matching choker are just my style. I hope you pick me! I have been collecting buttons since I was a wee one. There is just something about them, isn’t there? Thanks again! Chris Beresford

  662. Lynne

    My favorites are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Nature’s Drop Necklace. You are so dang talented! I, too, am a button lover and have jars of them….but none seem as cool as yours. Plus, I don’t do anything as fabulous as the ideas you come up with. Thanks!

  663. Sue K.

    Love the Rose Blossom Pin Kit! My daughter uses vintage shank buttons in creating her one-of-a-kind Kanzashi flowers, butterflies, bees. Buttons have fascinated me since I was little and played under my Grandmother’s and Mother’s sewing tables and made my own unique designs with the leftover buttons from their sewing projects.

  664. Lisa V

    LOVE everything vintage !!! I’ve recently made some jewelry with buttons and it was a huge hit with my friends.. You have such wonderful ideas, i personally love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Asian Style Bracelet… Keep you the creative juices – love your ideas !!!

  665. SARA TUCKER

    I just love buttons and I decorate many things with them. Can’t get enough. My favorite kits are the Mother of Pearl bracelet and the Mother of Pearl Chocker.

  666. Sandra Beck

    I love Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet it goes with anything as well as the Natures Drop Necklace. I have collected buttons since a young girl. One buttongirl to another, thanks. Buttons compliment everything.
    You always come up with such great & unique ideas for us..

  667. Jeanne

    Vineyard or Natures Cluster, I am a VINTAGE BUTTON GIRL, when I was a kid my Grandma was a seamstress and I can remember sitting in the sewing room overlooking the Kickapoo River and playing in her Calumet Can digging thru the buttons and I STILL HAVE ALL THOSE BUTTONS AND THE CALUMET CAN TOO!!!!!!!!! AND I STILL SIT AND DIG THRU THEM when the urge hits me. πŸ™‚ Plus I have amassed a collection of my own which I keep in my Vintage Christmas Tins. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

  668. Nancy

    What wonderful work and collections!

    Cyndi

  670. Lee Ann

    I love this concept! I inherited my grandmother’s and mother’s sewing kits and have a pile of vintage buttons to use. My favorite kit by far is the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. Since we are to pick two favorites, I’d have to say two Mother of pearl Charm Bracelet kits! Thanks for the chance to win!

  671. Tiffany

    The mother of pearl charm bracelet is adorable, it reminds me of my Mom’s crazy quilt pieces that she made when I was a child.

    The Asian Style Bracelet reminds me of street markets in Thailand.. Precious memories! πŸ™‚

  672. Shirley W.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some great prizes. My favorite kits are The Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit and the Rose Blossom Pin.

  673. Terrie

    Sorry, I forgot to indicate my preference of the Button Book…which is another favorite collection. Thank you.

  674. Sue Borges

    I love buttons and have a large collection of them. Sometimes I take them to school and show them to the 1st graders. They love to sort them and decide what buttons go together and why. Then I let them each choose a button to keep. You would think that I gave them a million dollars. I see them on the playground comparing their buttons.
    I like the Mother of pearl charm bracelet and the Mother of pearl choker kits the best.

  675. Shirley W.

    My two favorite kits are the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the rose blossom pin. I love making jewelry with buttons and I love old buttons. Thanks for the opportunity to win some wonderful prizes.

  676. Jan

    I especially love the nature themed kits. Natures Drop Necklace and the Vineyard Pendant are among my favorites, although it is hard to choose.

  677. Cindy Parker

    I love buttons as a decorative item. I have an old mayonaise jar filled with creamy white ones that I treasure. I’d like the two nature inspired kits, “Nature’s Cluster Bracelet,” and “Nature’s Drop Necklace.” I’d donate the book to the library where I am director. I purchased “Amy Barickman’s Vintage Notions,” for the library, which is very popular with my crafting library customers.

  678. Terrie

    Amy– What a great and generous contest. Yes, I love buttons and always gravitate to them at flea markets and antique stores. I always wonder about the history of the button, what garment was it once a part of; was a special occasion and how did it end up in someones “button jar”? Thank you for your blog and the special attention you give to sewing notions. That is also a weakness I have…I have been collecting vintage notions for many years and still get a thrill when I find another one to add to my collecton. Best, Terrie

  679. Sharon Sink

    I, too, have button collections from both sides of my family. Stored in apothecary jars, they are the decor in my sewing room.
    I’d like to have the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the nature’s drop nedklace. Such great ideas!

  680. Peg Miller

    I am so nostalgic for buttons. When my grandmother died over 40 years ago, I asked for her button box. Last year, I finally made my girls, my mother and aunt, button dolls from my grandmother’s buttons. I didn’t have enough left over for mlyself…bummer….but I keep looking to gather some more so I can make myself a doll too. I really liked the nature’s drop necklase and rose blosson pin kits….but bright and sassy was right up there too. Button girls happiness!

  681. valarie

    Wow, I’m with the crowd on the mother-of-pearl charm bracelet. I think that’s adorable. I like the vertical stacked bracelet as my second choice, but honestly, it’s hard to choose! I love buttons too, and I picked up a really nice vintage stash at a flea market for just $2! there were faceted glass ones and rhinestone ones, and just an amazing assortment. My mom is a button lover too. Pretty sure that charm bracelet would be a lovely Christmas gift….

  682. Karen

    I too love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Mother of Pearl Choker. They would make a beautiful set. I would also love having the Buttonware book. What a wonderful books of ideas. Thank you for the giveaway.

  683. jeanne

    The natural wear buttons seem to be the ones for me!
    Thanks for all the good ideas. I’m a freak for buttons so love anything to do with them.

  684. Patty C

    My passion for buttons began before walked. As my mother sewed for my dollies and me, I sat on the floor, playing in her button collection. I’m sure I stuffed one or two into my mouth to see how they felt and tasted. And the joy of feeling those “coins” of love slip through my fingers was a delight that still gives my heart a thrill all these many years later. Thank you for the opportunity to create with you.

  685. gail

    Amy
    these are lovely!!! My fav kits are the mother of pearl charm braclet and natures drop necklace. I love vintage buttons and they are always the first thing I look for when thrift shopping!
    Gail

  686. Diana Wylie

    Love the buttons, I have quite a selection but the mother of pearl are my favorite. Old buttons have so much character!

  687. Katherine M

    What a lovely book and a generous giveaway!! Thank you for the opportunity!!
    I LOVE the stacked vertical bracelet and the autumn stack pin kits but the rest are just as fun! I’m definitely going to have to talk to Santa about some of the kits on this list! LOL!

  688. Shepppard

    I have loved buttons since I can remember. ONe of the thins that delighted me about my future family – in – law was the huge collection of antique buttons they owned – the family was in dry goods for a while. I sew garments, costumes, quilts and crafts, knit etc. but buttons always seem to catch me! I love the Nature’s CLuster and Lacy Shell kits although it is very hard to decide!

  689. Jo

    I have collected buttons since I was a child. Winning your book, kits and more buttons would be a Fantastic!

    My kit favorites are the Autumn Stacked Pin an the Asian Style Bracelet.

  690. Marie Fibelstad

    Love the Fall colors in the Button Autumn Stack pin, 5116. I have always enjoyed collecting buttons and showing them off in old fashion glass canning jars!
    Hard to choose, but think the Crocheted Pendents 5114, is another favorite as looks very antique.
    Hope to be lucky enough to wear them. Thanks

  691. Deborah

    This is a wonderful idea – long before buttons a hit. I crochted a necklace with buttons. I have many old ones from my mom. And love using buttons and your book and projects look great.

  692. jane

    I love the mother of pearl charm bracelet. It would look great on my wrist!

  693. Linda in Maryville, IL

    I love buttons too! I checked out the button kits and I love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet Button Ware Jewelry Kit and the Asian style Bracelet Button Ware Jewelry Kit. Wishing everyone good luck in the drawing.

  694. Stacey

    I really love the rose blossom pin, the bright & sassy pendant – and all the rest, too. I love Mary’s post about her grandmother’s button box. I loved my grandmother’s button box, too, but sadly I have no idea what happened to it after she passed… Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  695. Patty C

    My passion for buttons before I walked. As my mother sewed for me and my dollies I played in the button box. I’m sure I stuffed one or two into my mouth to see how they felt and tasted. Mostly I remember the wonderful, silky gliding feel of buttons as they slipped through my fingers. That feeling of buttons sifting through my hands still makes my heart flutter. Thank you for the opportunity to create with your buttons. You’re an inspiration.

  696. Judy Applegarth

    I just love the Mother of Pearl bracelet kit. What a fantastic giveaway. I hope I’m one of the winners,

  697. Janet

    Hi, Amy: I’ve been collecting buttons since I was a teenager, and many of my collection have stories behind them. I love how you are repurposing the simple button into a beautiful artistic element. My favorite kits are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Vineyard Pendant. Best wishes!

  698. donna

    Love Love love buttons, Rose Blossom and Vineyard Pendant would be great to make.
    Thanks!

  699. Juli

    Really love the crochet button pendant and the Asian bracelet kits. I can see making several and wearing together for even more impact! Cool!

  700. Diane Caton

    Goodness, a pound of buttons! Best Christmas gift ever….I have boxes full of buttons that I sift through regularly just to remind myself how beautiful they are. I am always drawn to pillows, clothing, etc. that have buttons! Love them all!

  701. Jeanne

    Well, I would like ALL of the kits – but if I have to pick two – the Vertical Stacked bracelet and Mother of Pearl Charm bracelet would be the ones – I am planning on making a white button wreath for Christmas and am eager to do more with buttons.

  702. Nancy Dunavan

    I adore buttons! I have randomly bought buttons for many years, sometimes I take them out of the box and admire them till I can find a project for them. I think my two favorite projects are the Mother of Pearl charm braclet and the Nature braclet. I’ll be interested to see the projects in your book.

  703. pam

    I actually already own Buttonware! Bought it at quilt market. Lovely book, like all your endevors!

  704. Kathy Fuller

    I would love to try the Vineyard Pendant and the Vertical Stacked Bracelet kits.

    Thank you. πŸ™‚

  705. Ann Bailey

    I’m into pins and earrings. I have made several pairs of button earrings and get compliments from them all the time – who knew they were buttons?

    I like the pin kits – #5111 and #5118 – I’ve been thinking of putting pins together, my problem is finding the right pin part itself that will work with the buttons.

    I am so glad that Indigo Junction thinks of clever ways to use clothing items taken for granted – like zippers and buttons – here – they’re not just an essential garment closure – they’re art!

  706. mary pat henderson

    Opps…I think I lost my reply…You can never have too many buttons! I collect mine from Antique shops, garage sales and from friends that know of my obsession for buttons. I have got to get a copy of your Button Book. I especially love your Clay Swirl and Crochet Button Pendents…..And what do I want from Santa again this year????More buttons, of course.

  707. Joyce

    Oh I love these kits!! I’m a button collector too and my favorite box was my grandmother’s button box. I can’t even put them in the jars with the rest of the collection as I like knowing hers are in her box. (A used card box of course. πŸ™‚ )

    I’d like the Mother of Pearl choker and the Nature’s Drop necklace kits. Yummy!!

  708. Leslee Covington

    I too remember my grandmother’s button box – I often wonder what happened to it. I know some of the tiniest ones ended up on the fabulous handmade Barbie clothes my mother made. But alas, I’m not nearly as “crafty” as my mother was or my sister still is. I think it would have to be the Crochet Necklace and the Nature’s Drop Pendant for me. Thanks for all your inspiration!

  709. Bonnie

    Amy,
    I love your buttons and button projects! I, too, am a button lover. I have some of my mother’s and grandmother’s vintage buttons and love to use them, but don’t want to “use them up!” Several years ago, I made my sister a button lamp for Christmas. I filled a quart jar with vintage and other buttons (some of our mother’s and grandmother’s), added lamp parts and a shade – and it was her favorite Christmas present. I would love to try some of the projects from your “Buttonware” book. I think my favorite projects are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit and the Rose Blossom pin. Thanks for this opportunity!

  710. Jacque H.

    How fun is this! I can’t throw away a button – use them for cards, scrapbooks, etc. I can”t believe I’ve never considered the jewelry option. My two favorite kits are the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Nature’s Drop Necklace, but really, they all look fun!

  711. Beth Fisher

    It was difficult to choose just two; they are all adorable. I loved the Diagonal Stacked Pin kit, it would be great on a jacket or sweater. And I loved the colors in the Vineyard Pendant. It would be an interesting fan pull, too.

  712. Shirley

    Have been collecting these little pieces of art for a couple of decades now and haven’t done much with them. I am inspired by BUTTONWARE to create art with them. I like the vertical stacked bracelet as a jumping off point.

  713. jeanne

    I have a stash of buttons from my mom and grandmom, but newer, contemporary buttons have the brightness I looking for now. That aside, I like the natural wear kit, because it is so subtle.

  714. Lynn Conley

    My favorites would be the mother of pearl charm bracelet and the natures drop bracelet. I love buttons.

  715. mary pat henderson

    You can never have too many buttons….I buy them at antique stores, garage sales and get them from friends. I especially like the old buttons, which are getting harder to find. I need to get a copy of your button book! I especially like your Clay Swirl and the Crochet Button Pendent kits…..And…what do I want from Santa again this year? MORE BUTTONS!

  716. Penny Smith

    I love the Crochet Button Pendant and Rose Blossom Pin. I have always enjoyed adding buttons to my craft and sewing projects.

  717. Lynne Weinberger

    Rose Blossom Pin and Clay Swirl Pendant are the two I’d try first, followed closely by the rest of the kits! Amy, I’ve been devouring your Vintage Notions and am as addicted to buttons as you are. When you wrote that the prize included a pound of buttons, my pulse quickened a little! Thanks for your ideas and inspiration.

  718. Elisabeth in France

    Love your Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and your Bright and Sassy Pendant.
    Thanks for organising this!

  719. audrey

    Hello Amy.
    How dull life would be without buttons! I have collected them for years and I have my Mother’s button box as well as some vintage ones I’ve purchased. What a wonderful Christmas gift winning would be. The book looks wonderful. My two choices are 5124 MOP Charm Bracelet and 5110 Nature’s Drop Necklace.
    Fingers crossed.
    Γ’β„’Β₯ audrey

  720. Darla

    Love, love, love these button kits. I have been a fan of buttons my entire life. My mom had a giant jar full of buttons, and I use to spend hours looking through them as a child. When I see a button, I am taken back to my mom and grandma’s old treadle sewing machines and life is good. My two favorite are the 1) Natures Drop Necklace kit, and 2) Crochet Button pendant. Thanks for the memories ( :

  721. Elaine Shipp

    After reading all the messages Mary Janson will probably win and I understand why. I too have a collection of buttons past down from generations. I love just to put my hands in them and feel them. It has a calming feel that only certain people understand. I love the Pearl Charm Bracelet kit as well as the Vineyard Pendant. Thank you for providing the opportunity for someone to win.

  722. Killeen moss

    I love buttons! I cherish my grandmother button jar. I never knew her but I love her button jar that was given to me by my mom. I would love the rose necklace and the charm bracelet with mother of pearl. Good luck with your wonderful line of buttons and accessories! Thanks so much for sharing!

  723. penelope king

    Mama had a box of buttons…of course I saved it and have used one a couple of times. I would love to win the mother of pearl choker and the clay swirl pendant kits1 Signed, a button lover

  724. Carla

    Carla

  725. Emma F.

    I absolutely love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Rose Blossom Pin kits! They are just darling!

  727. Mary Kay

    I love Crochet Button Pendant # 5114 and Natures Drop Necklace # 5110. Thanks for the chance.

  728. Brenda Lambert

    I love buttons!!!! Have been known to find a button and build around it. My 2 favorite kits are The Autumn Stacked pin and the mother of pearl Charm Bracelet. i like bracelets almost as much as i do buttons!!!

  729. Sherrie

    I really like the diagonal stacked pin because it’s very classy and would look great on a jacket lapel. I also like the mother of peal bracelet because it’s something I would wear often or would give to a friend as a gift. I also think I would learn some new skills with these kits as they are not like anything I’ve tried before.

  730. Mary Jane Cardwell

    I like the Vertical Stacked Bracelet and the Diagonal Stacked Pin – Button Ware Jewelry Kits. I would enjoy making the projects in your book.

  731. Gloria Linburg

    All of these button kits are gorgeous. I love buttons! And I love what you do with them. It was hard to choose favorites but I chose the Bright & Sassy pendant and the Crochet Button pendant.

  732. Lois

    I still have my mother’s buttons. I love playing with.

  733. Dorylyn Thomas

    As a young girl, I remember sitting at the feet of my grandmother playing with a jar of buttons while her feet went up and down on the pedal sewing machine. So…..you have touched my heart with your Button Ware Jewelry book and kits. I love them all but I would really love The Autumn Stack Pin. Thank you!

  734. Shannon Ratliff

    BUTTONS are SO wonderful to work with! I love the vintage feel of the look they create. When I was a little girl, my Grandmother worked with me doing creative crafts and we ALWAYS used buttons! Happy memories that I’m now creating with my own daughters (all 3 of them!)… What a treasure!

  735. Janet Henry

    I have always loved buttons and used to play with and sort my mom’s and grandmothers’ buttons as a child. Whenever I go to yard sales or antique stores, that is what I hunt for. It is good to know I am in such good company.

  736. Karen H.

    I have the button ware book and love it. I really like the Bright & Sassy pendant and the Vintage pendant. They are easy for my grand daughters (5), to make from my collection of buttons from my Mom and Grandmothers.

  737. Connie Lewis

    I love your buttons, they are such a inspiration. I love the kits vineyard & bright & sassy. Thanks

  738. Olivia Kuebler

    Many thanks!
    Deborah

  742. Olivia Kuebler

    I don’t know why I love buttons so much but I remember playing with my Mom’s collection when I was a young girl. She kept hers in a jar and they just fascinated me. Now I am collecting my own.

  743. Shirley Jones

    Enjoy your blog and my choice would have to be the Mother of Pearl Charm

  744. Lou Haines

    Love buttons – anything and everything about them! Learned my love of buttons at my grandmother’s knee – like so many of us! Oh, how I long for those button jars now, but I intend to gift my grandchildren with plenty of buttons and instill that great love in them!

  745. Jude C.

    You have brought back fond memories of my mother and aunt’s button jars from my childhood. Both had a collection that included some of my great grandmother’s stash (who was a seamstress). The Mother of Pearl kit reminds me so much of the buttons in those jars. Thank you for reminding me of those special ladies and their jars!

  746. Bea Yuill

    absolutely love your crochet button pendant and the natures drop necklace!…………i also love love love buttons!!……….my 20 month old granddaughter shares my fascination with buttons as she scoops her little hands in my button box and stares at each button with wonder!………..

  754. Kay Martin

    I love buttons! I have vintage buttons from my mom and grandma and always cutting buttons off worn out clothing, for no apparent purpose other than to not throw away perfectly good buttons. I would like to win the Bright & Sassy Pendant Kit. Thank you for the possibility of growing my button stash!

    I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to know that others love to sift through heaps of buttons. For some reason, I find it so soothing and inspiring. I do not have Buttonware, but have seen it and drooled! After looking at the kits, I found the mother of pearl charm bracelet to be my favorite!

    Dear Amy, you are making my life miserable! What I mean is there are so many of your projects I want to make that I don’t have enough years in my life to complete them all! I love all your designs and when I look at your button kits, love those too! I love your mother of pearl choker and your autumn color one. I guess I’ll just have to take a deep breath and tackle it one project at a time. thanks for being such an inspiration.

  774. Shirley

    I have a box of old buttons that belonged to my Mother. There are some buttons in it that belonged to my Great Grandmother. I would love to win the book for ideas on how to use these buttons. I like the bright and sassy pendant and the stacked bracelet. Thank you for the great giveaway.

  778. Judy M

    When you were in Atlanta at the Southern Living Market Fair at Stone Mountain, I purchased one of your button books — love it! I have a dentist’s cabinet filled with drawers of sorted buttons (long story). I love using buttons as embellishments and need to get more creative with them. I would love one of your Lacy Shell Choker Button Ware kits and also love the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet kit.

  779. Peace Schuyler

    Wow, the Mother of Pearl charm bracelet is very popular! And I am going with the crowd, I love it! I have my own button fetish too! :OD

  780. Mary Gardner

    The two kits I would chose to go along with your wonderful book would be the Vineyard Pendant and the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet. I have my own can of old buttons- what fun. I love your books and would love to try out this new craft. Kuddos to JHB International for their part!

  781. Evelyn

    I would like to make the Clay Swirl Pendant and the Vertical Stacked Bracelet.

  782. Jane T

    Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet – Button Ware Jewelry Kit
    is the one I would choose if I win your giveaway.

    I have a story you can appreciate. I am 66 years old and spent a lot of time with my grandmother when I was a very young girl. She had one of those cookie tins filled with the most wonderful buttons. I spent hours on her bed trying to find a way to sort them, which is impossible – many ways, but not just one way. When she sewed for me, she would pay an enormous price for just the right button on each dress she made for me.

    My dad is an only child and when my grandmother died, he wouldn’t let any of us four children go in and pick something of hers until he cleaned up her house. Finally, one day he said we could go get something that we wanted. I immediately said I wanted the button tin because it meant so much to me. He kind of looked sheepish and said he had thrown that away. Instead, all that he left for us to choose from were ceramic dolls she had made with lace. I have never liked ceramics probably because I had to be around it so much when she taught classes. I politely took a doll and I think it is in the living room closet.

    I have grieved probably 20 years over those buttons and I guess I will never get over it. Foolish I know, but to this day I cannot believe he threw them out.

    Well, nice to know someone else who loves buttons. Thanks for such a great giveaway.

    Wow, I want to get creative with your book. I like the mother of pearl bracelet kit and the nature cluster stack bracelet kit. Please pick me as they will look so cute on my wrist at work when I stand by Harley at work. Keep up the creative style.

  784. sue morris

  785. sue morris

    Oh! How exciting!! I just found your site and I would LOVE to have these beautiful items! I have a serious addiction to buttons. I can’t help it! LOL and have been trying to discover new and creative ways to use them. This is my first visit to your website and I’m so grateful for Google that I found you. πŸ˜›

  786. Cheryl

    I like the lacy choker – it would be great with jeans or dresses. When I go to the local monthly antique flea market I am on a treasure hunt for several things: vintage state hankies, silver plated flatware, trade cards and buttons! I always come home with some kind of treasure. The book would be put to great use with the buttons that I have collected in my treasure hunts and old family buttons.

  787. Jane

    LOve the mother of pearl charm bracelet. I’d love the book, inherited tons of buttons from my mother and mother-in-law and would love to use them and share them with their great granddaughters in a fun craft project

  788. Toni Mitt

    Shoot–I was going to be the first post-er. Oh well. πŸ™‚ Anyway–I’ve always loved the button projects on Indygo Junction, so I’d be thrilled to win this book. Or the button kit. Or the buttons!
    Thanks for having this giveaway. It’s very kind.
    Toni in Milwaukee (the real Windy City today…)

  789. Cheryl

    The mother of Pearl choker necklace is so fun and would look great with jeans or dress. At our local monthly antiques flea market I treasure hunt for several things, antique state hankies, odd sliver plate flatware, trade cards and buttons! I never leave without some kind of treasure. I would love to use some of my found buttons with ideas from your book.

  790. Shirley in Canada

    What a wonderful book!!! Would love to win this treasure!!

  791. SandiE

    What a fun contest! Some of my favorite sewing memories are about buttons – both from searching through my mom’s button box as a beginning sewer; and also watching my girls play with my buttons as small children – sorting and sifting through them. I can’t wait to learn some new ways to use my button collection. The techniques in the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Autumn Stacked Pin look like a lot of fun and would be where I would start! I’m hoping that my name is picked so I can make some fun Christmas presents for my girls!

  792. Wilma Searcy

    My collection of old buttons include my own, from 60 years of married life and 4 sons, my mother’s button jar, and my mother-in-law’s button jar. Most of the buttons seem utilitarian, as from farm work shirts, some from military uniforms, many are satiny mother of pearl, some are fancy with inset stones, and some are very unique. I would love to win your book and the two kits: Natures Cluster Bracelet and Asian Style Bracelet, the the pound of buttons. Thank you for this giveaway!

  793. Molly Bernier

    I love the front pages bracelet – so colorful – some wonderful buttons included in that piece. I too like the MOP bracelet as well – MOPs are so dreamy and one of a kind. Happy Button Hunting! Molly πŸ™‚

  794. Lee-Ann Lally

    I love old buttons too! I enherited my grandmother’s button jars.

  795. Sharon K. Lozano

    Hi, I love buttons too! You definitely have some pretty kits. My two favorites are mother of pearl charm bracelet and clay swirl pendant. Thanks for the give-a-way…Sharon

  796. Terry H

    I have oohed and awed over this book and think it would be so much fun to share with my granddaughters who are just the right age to find a passion in buttons.

    • Terry H

      I especially think the mother of pearl charm braclet would be fun to make with the girls.

  797. Baye

    The clay swirl is my favorite. I am also a button fan. Now if only I could start DOING something with all these buttons;-]

  798. Kay

    Love the buttons. Have several from my Grandmother’s button box. Would love to win. Like the pendant buttonware kit.

  799. Belinda K-N

    Oh Amy, I think we are kindred spirits – I am completely in love with buttons…can’t get enough! I can’t wait to get my hands on your ” Buttonware” book. All of the buttonware kits are AMAZING – I had a hard time choosing a pair – I think my two favorites are the Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet and the Rose Blossom Pin – both so delicate and gorgeous! Thank you so much for the giveaway opportunity.

  800. April

    The Mother of Pearl charm bracelet and the stacked pin are my favorite! I’ve given your book several times as a gift but don’t have one myself! Thanks for the chance to win!! V

  803. Mary Janson

    Amy, Amy, Amy. You really must come for a visit so you can sit down with my husband and family and explain to them where I get these idea’s from! This is going to be a long comment but I think one you will appreciate. My Grandmother was born in 1899 and so sadly passed in November of 1998. She lived the first half of her life in the same house that she grew up in, later married in, and then raised her children in. When they were putting in “the Highway” the construction took her childhood home and she moved into the house she would spend the second half of her life. I fell in love with vintage at her house. Of course she called it old, but the look of it, the smell of it, the wonderful stories behind all those old things was woven into the fabric of my life in the rooms of that house. When her time in that house came to an end I felt that something inside me came to an end. All of the grandchildren were asked if there was a special piece that they wanted to keep and everyone was satisfied and pleased in what they received. She had some really lovely and valuable pieces of furniture, china and really old toys that were actually her mother’s. I asked for none of that. There were only three things that I wanted. Her button box, her linens, and my Grandfathers three prong forks he ate with. I wanted the linens so that anytime I needed to I could smell her again. I wanted the forks so that I would remember the stories my Grandfather told as he used them and I wanted the button box because it told the history of my family. As we all know a button box holds more than just buttons. That’s were the lost skate key was found, lost buttons from World War I, II and Korea military uniforms. Parts of a rosary that had broken. Tokens from the street cars, ration coins. A button from a wedding dress, baptism gown. A button from the suit jacket my Great Grandfather was buried in. Anything left in the pocket or on the lapel of clothes. For over the past 100 years small little reminders of family moments were deposited in that button box. Many years later I found the button box that I had put up on a shelf. After sorting through the contents I it came to me that each piece was a story and that story should be shared. So I found a small shadow box, probably 8″x5″ and 2″ deep and placed the button box contents in the shadow box. My first piece. From the shadow box came memory boxes and vintage paper bag books and I found my love of vintage hadn’t ended, it was just put on hold until I could figure out how I wanted to share my own stories. Now the button box sits out in my living room and when my nieces and nephews come over and ask “Wow, what is that stuff in there” I tell them the story of their family, button by button.

    • Karen

      Mary, I too have the family button box. Yes, there are many many memories in that box. As you said the box was not only for buttons but any other item that may be very small and noone knew what to do with it but didn’t want to throw it away went in the box. That is a very good idea you have with making shadow boxes with them.

    • Peg Miller

      Mary….what a beautiful idea! Thank you for being a memory maker/keeper.

  804. Glenda Burch

    I would love to win this as I do jewelry and this would be so much fun to try. I like the Book and the Mother Of Pearl Choker – Button Ware Jewelry Kit.

  806. Bonnie

    Amy….it’s always good to connect with fellow addicts! It’s all so harmless and pleasurable…buttons, books, fabric, notions, etc. Thanks for giving us the outlet to justify!

  807. Barbara

    Oh, that Mother Of Pearl Charm Bracelet captures my heart! I’m so excited about the new line of buttons from JHB, they are such a great company. (If I can buy new buttons that look old, I can keep the old ones and not use them up ;^) I love collecting them, but have a hard time using them…) Thank you for the chance to win!

  808. Bonney

    I love Bright and Sassy and Mother of Pearl bracelet! AND this looks like a project I might actually finish before Christmas!

  809. Shirley Clark

    I love buttons myself! I saved a bunch from my mom’s button box, which was a cigar box, and I’ve tried to use some of them on outfits for my little granddaughter.
    Whenever I go to flea markets or estate sales, I always look for buttons.
    If I won, I’d like the Mother of Pearl Charm Bracelet.

    Thanks,
    ShirleyC

  810. Susan

    Love them all but Nature’s Drop Necklace just spoke to me — “Choose me, choose me!”

  812. Annette Swan

    I would love the Vineyard Pendant and Natues Drop Pendant Kit.

  813. Charlotte Gallaher

    I too am addicted to buttons. I made a blouse and covered the collar and cuffs with mother of pearl buttons, several watch bands made from buttons and most project find a button or button on them as embellishment. If I am lucky enough to win, I would like the Mother of Pearl charm braclet kit & the Crochet Button Pendant kit.
    Thanks

  814. Susan D. Lee

    Wonderful contest, Amy! Just in time for creating for Christmas!
    If I won, I would be giving these to my sister, who has recently lost her job and is also a gifted creator.
    I would choose the Nature’s Drop and the Clay Swirl as these are definitely ones she would love.

  815. Cara R.

    Decisions, decisions. It is so hard to choose. I finally narrowed it down to Vertical Stacked Bracelet and Mother of pearl Charm Bracelet kits.
