When promoting your button club, it often takes just a little effort upfront for a good payoff at the end! As part of our promotion of the January 2017 Florida State Button Society Meeting & Show, I wrote an article on button collecting for the regional "Florida Register"...a quilters newspaper. Soon after, I picked up a copy of a local newspaper, the "Senior Voice" and immediately wondered if they would be interested in the same article (only tweaked to fit the area). They readily accepted the article and printed it with a few photos I submitted as well. From that one article, we got quilters to come to the show as well as local response by both an assisted living center for button sharing with their residents and a couple of new attendees at our button group meeting this week. If you would like a copy of that article to tweak for publication in your area. Just click "CONTACT" above to request it..
