My first handmade Thread Buttons / Meine ersten Zwirn Knoepfe
This is a lovely photo of the author and fiber artist Sabine Krump showing off some of her fancy
She is The Button Maker / Die Knopfmacherin who learned the Art of button making from her Grandmother and she shares the story that making buttons for bedding and underwear was an occupation for poor people working from home. Even children participated in making buttons to help the family to earn a bit of extra money . The entire village was producing these buttons in the 18- and 19 hundreds. Sabine took the Art to a new level by using colors other than just white and by designing various ever changing designs.
and Author of several outstanding books with instructions as well as the history of this almost forgotten art which she brought back into the present....
