Yay, it’s that time of the month when we talk about BUTTONS! Members of our Button Lovers’ Club 2 will soon be receiving their September button sets, “Bee is for Buttons”. If you haven’t heard the buzz about our button club yet, but NEED this set, there is still time to join before this set ships!
These honey and black hues pay homage to our bumblebee friends, and as always there is a huge variety of sizes and shapes.
And of course, this cute art card by Tammy Tutterow is included as well!
Check out the mini quilt Pat Sloan designed with the Bee is for Buttons and Bee Inspired Layer Cake! Once you receive your September buttons, make a beeline for Pat’s blog to get the free instructions and templates!
We are more than halfway through July, but Summer is still in full swing! Soon we will be sending out the August button sets, “Summer Lovin'” to our Button Lovers’ Club 2 members. There is still time to get in on the action if you are swooning over these citrus-y buttons!
It’s almost time for our second go-round of our club that is completely and wholly dedicated to buttons! Do you appreciate the fine, smooth finish of a well-crafted button? Do you crave the clink of buttons as you sort through them? Or maybe you just love the inspiration of fresh color themes being delivered to you each month? Then don’t miss Button Lovers’ Club 2 at the Fat Quarter Shop!
This series of buttons includes a mix of over 65 hand-dyed or handmade buttons from Just Another Button Company in a variety of colors, sizes and styles each month, and runs from July 2017 – June 2018. We have listed all the themes for each month, and they sound as cute as a button — or as cute as many, many buttons, delivered to your door each month!
As a bonus, the Button Lovers’ Club 2 boxes will include art cards by artist Tammy Tutterow! Her cards are a worthy canvas for your buttons.
But of course you don’t have to stop there! Add some needle and thread and a good sprinkling of Pat Sloan’s creativity. Check out what she made with July’s “Red, White and Blue-tiful” buttons! Want to make a little wallhanging like hers? Sail on over to her blog for her templates and more information, but first be sure you’re all signed up for the Button Lovers’ Club 2 and enjoy!
