COVID-19 Help

Sue Farrah discovered a sewing group who were making Head Bands for masks - as wearing the elastic around ears can become extremely uncomfortable. Linda Doyle, keeper of OVBC supplies, which include our giant poke box of buttons, led to Linda sorting and sorting - only to put together over 400 buttons, all packaged and ready for delivery. Thanks to all for their work. Buttons required measure 3/4 inch... and the sewers do not mind if they do not match!

In total, our club has donated over 2000 buttons in the last week!

Sewing for Ottawa where you can donate supplies etc.

The Ottawa Valley Button Club is a group of people with a passion for clothing buttons. Learning about, preserving and displaying buttons is part of the joy of collecting buttons. It will take you on a fascinating discovery journey that can involve history, art, fashion, socio-economics, workmanship and production.
