KIND Meeting – Dorset buttons

August 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The KIND chapter will meet via Zoom on August 20 at 10 am. Pat Modisett will present a program on making Dorset buttons.

Dorset buttons are essentially rings (plastic now, formerly wood, bone or horn) covered with natural linen or cotton (or wool). We’re going to learn the basic design and then you can let your imaginations soar!

Because of limited supplies, if you plan to attend the class, please send Pat an email at modisettwilson@gmail.com with your physical address so that she can mail you a packet of materials. Only the first 15 people to register will get the packet.

Pat has had fun learning about these and can see lots of possible uses. Ours probably won’t be used for custom made undergarments or fireplace hoods as they were back in the day, but they’d look great on a sweater or hat or accent piece on a scarf or purse.  Join us and try it! All registrations must be received by noon on August 13.
