June Meeting - We're off to Button Swoon

Friday, 21 June 2013 § 0

June's meeting was all about buttons. We had the lovely Michelle from Duttons for Buttons give us a talk about their history. The Roses learnt some really interesting facts including about French man who had pictures of his mistresses painted on his buttons (very daring if you ask me!)

Michelle also brought along examples of some gorgeous buttons which had some really intricate pictures but were all tiny. After that the Roses got the chance to swap some of their own buttons.

However, it was also a sad meeting as we said goodbye to Louise Ebrey who will be leaving us for Macau but not before she donated some fab craft stuff to the Roses. We toasted her in the traditional Buns & Roses way with drinks and cakes.

What's this?
