OSBS was formed in 1948 and oversees several local clubs throughout the state of Oregon. The purpose of the Oregon State Button Society is to encourage the advancement of education about the history of buttons in trim and fashion, including their manufacture and use; and to promote the collection and preservation of buttons as cultural artifacts.
OSBS hosts a button show and sales event every May in Keizer, Oregon. OSBS also hosts the annual picnic and two workshops throughout the year for state and local club members.
