Button Lovers’ Club 2

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!
