Love ALL of your buttons! Do you ever make buttons with a shank? I'm a knitter, and sometimes I just need one stunner button. You look like the answer

Mary,
Thanks so much for visiting ABW AND liking our buttons.As to shanks,I haven't yet. Because I haven't, that means I haven't tested various shank implementations. Of course the old-fashioned way of shanking a "regular" button is to use heavy thread, sewing the button on with long loops so that it's loose, then whipping the threads between the button and fabric with more thread to form a shank that is the thickness of the material that you are closing. That would work with any button.Or some people even use a small, elongated bead the length of the desired shank. But, I think the first way is the best.

You should sell on etsy.com, it's a great source. These buttons make me want to take up sewing.

Clare,
Thanks for the feedback. BUT, I don't sell on Etsy because, (gulg) I am a web site designer in my spare time and I think it is really too hard to find stuff on the site. But, I do appreciate the thought!

I saw your web site at Susan Abbott's house. I also work and display at Artisan's Hand and saw that your work would be juried in March. I'm delighted that you may have buttons in Montpelier. I love what you are doing. I make large, small etc. bags our of quilting fabric and vintage kimono fabric. I embellish the fabric with threads, beads, ribbon embroidery, silk flowers and now perhaps buttons, that I would incorporate into the overall design by using all kinds of beading. I look forward to holding your buttons that I've ordered and hopefully, see at Artisan's Hand.

I was so lucky to find Art Buttons and Clair. I needed a special design for some decorator pillows. Clair e-mailed me four designs within 24 hours. All were good. but the design I chose was great! I had the buttons in less than 3 days. I believe that I found a true artist.
