2020 – 2021 MEETINGS:  SAVE THE DATES

Wednesday, December 16,  2020  (3th  Week)  Virtual 7:30pm

“Button, Button… Who has the Button?”

We all have buttons.. jars of them, removed from old shirts, jackets, coats, lost buttons found after the garment is long gone, some very old, some overbought, or just used to teach children how to count and sort!

Please join us online Wednesday, December 16th, at 7:30pm for a ZOOM adventure into “Buttonland” or “Things you never knew about the Humble Button” .

Chaya Erez and Gwen Orriell will pilot us through some of the fascinating history of buttons.

If you have any interesting, unusual, or special buttons, bring them to the computer camera to share after their talk.

You might learn something new about your special button.

The Challenge for this year includes the use of at least one button.

Maybe this will help you decide which will be that lucky button that will be a statement part of your next masterpiece!
