Dating back to the late sixteenth century, Dorset buttons are a great way to embellish your quilting project and knitwear. Finish them as jewelry pieces if you wish. They are functional too! Start the class by making the traditional Blandford cartwheel to learn the basics before discussing some variations, including a fan-style button and the Maltese Cross. Catherine will show you how to include beads and will finish the class with a look at styles inspired by vintage buttons of the 1950s.
