does anyone have a button box, ive started this thread from one on another subject but it has made me wonder if anyone still has them or am I showing my age.
My gran had one and my Mother inherited it and added all her buttons to it and I started my own when I got married. I do knit occasionally and am amazed by the cost of buttons.
I have a friend who used to go to jumble sales and buy ragged cardis for two pence and strip them of buttons for her box and recycle the wool.
Are these days gone forever along with the jumble sales.
I was reading one of the modern craft mags recently and an article referred to a 'stash' which I think is the modern equivalent where you keep bits of ribbons, thread etc.
also does anyone remember the 'pins and needles' magazine. I really enjoyed it.
