We all love to collect; by nature we are hunters and gatherers in our own ways. Buttons are an everyday commodity. They are generally small, inexpensive and instilled with memories. My interest in crafting buttons started when I inherited my mother’s button jars, a source of many stories chronicling the past. I remember, she would sew and I would play with the buttons - lining them up, threading or sorting them out by colour and shape.
