Button Craft Tutorials
The National Button Society YouTube channel features button craft tutorials as well as, the button craft videos that were part of the NBS virtual meeting in August 2021. The 14 button craft videos have been viewed more than 3,500 times. We invite you to become a subscriber so you don’t miss any of the new tutorials! Go to the National Button Society Button Creativity channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/NationalButtonSocietyButtonCreativity.
The NBS series of button craft tutorials were created in response to its members’ increased interest in using their non-collectible buttons in artistic ways. This series of button crafts and the other button craft ideas on the NBS website support its mission to preserve all that is beautiful and historic in buttons.

Haiku for Button Lovers
I LOVE BUTTONS!
For me, buttons are miniature works of art. Examining their designs, colors and materials gives me great pleasure.
Haiku for Button Lovers is full of “insider information” -- the details about buttons. The more you know about buttons, the more you will enjoy the poetry. It's short and sweet and is written with a clever turn of phrase.
The 76 Haiku poems are under these categories:
I hope reading my Haiku for Button Lovers will delight button collectors and intrigue others to learn more about buttons and button collecting.
Haiku for Button Lovers can be found in Kindle format on Amazon: www.amazon.com/-/e/B07GDNQJF5 You can also read it on your smartphone, tablet or computer by using one of the apps Amazon offers.

Talk about Buttons!
I talked to two art classes at my granddaughter's school about Found Objects Art...focusing on button art. I got a thank you jar of buttons from the art teacher with this nice note: "Thank you for your awesome presentation. I think you inspired some students to start collecting buttons."
My goal all along!
