Button making parties!

We’ve got a lot of places and people that need buttons and we need help making them! We’ll be having weekly button making parties for at least the next month. The first one is tonight at the Georgetown Liquor Company. It was planned on short notice, but we hope some folks show up to help us get a big bunch of buttons made. The details are up at MYBO. If the event says it’s full, we may still be able to accommodate a few more people. Contact Jody to see about it. Bring scissors.

We’ll also be making buttons at the GLC on 10/2.

These two parties and all future ones at the Georgetown Liquor Company are 21 and over. However, we know some young people want to make buttons too. Therefore, we’re in the final stages of planning some all ages parties next door from the GLC at Stellar’s Pizza. Keep checking back here for info about those parties.

This Sunday we’ll be taking part in Buttonpalooza! This will be an all day button making extravaganza with our fellow Seattle button makers. You can sign up to make buttons for a shift, or if the slots are all full you can drop by to say hello and pick up a button or two for a $1 donation each.

In supplies news, thanks to all the donations coming in we’re now stocked with button parts for 10,000 buttons! Our printer has been buzzing almost non-stop printing out button artwork. We experimented this week with getting copies of the artwork made at Kinkos. Let’s just say it was an exercise in frustration and we’ll be sticking with our good old Epson Stylus Photo 820 printer, even though it’s a hungry ink beast.
