May visit to Buttonmania
May 22, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Visiting Buttonmania - our Melbourne field trip is back by popular demand!
Everyone had a lot of fun last time, we have arranged another special day with Kate.
Buttonmania is a specialty button shop in the Nicholas Building in Melbourne. Kate, who owns the shop, occasionally opens her store room where she sells fabric pieces from her extensive collection. Her collection contains all sorts of fabrics after years as a dressmaker. It is a treasure trove for quilters looking for a specialty piece of velvet, satin, wool, all sorts of things. She also sells buttons by the kilo. Bags and boxes decorate her space and you can choose the number you want. All you knitters out there, it is a terrific way of creating a button stash so you always have buttons on hand.
Buttonmania is located at Suite 1, 2nd Floor, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston St, Melbourne.
It is less than a block from the Flinders Street train station and trams run right past.
Come along and join the fun. Something to put in your calendar for May!
