Learn about the materials used, the history, the age, and all the different subjects on buttons that are beyond your imagination. Create a meaningful, personal, frameable  9″ by 12″ individual button design of 25 buttons, incuding your own precious treasures. Most materials provided.
Randi has been a serious button collector (therefore a buyer and seller) and a competitor for 24 years.. She has spoken to many groups across the Valley as well as conducting annual workshops at the State Button Show. She is a lifetime member of the National Button Society, contributes articles regularly to the Arizona State Button Society’s quarterly bulletin, and is an active member in the local East Valley Saguaro Button Club.
