Since 1994 wheeze been meeting down here… Jan, Narcie (when not snowbirding), Deanna, Hildegard, Margarent and I get together about 9 months each year – small but still buttoning! (We have had several others cycle in and out, but these are the core members).
Hildegard and I do keep state button info handy – we each sell buttons in a different part of the county and leave it there.
I am inspired since the National programs on button ambassador and NBS grants and all the new ideas that were shared.
