Buttons Now Available

Handmade metal buttons are now available at tomorrow’s fibre arts fair in Errington / Coombs as well as a local shop.

By popular demand, Tamaki’s handmade metal buttons are now available in oceanside. Handmade of brass, copper, and aluminum, each is a unique work of art in various patterns, textures, sizes, and shapes. The perfect finishing touch to your handmade textile or fiber art piece; knitters, weavers, designers, and jewellery makers have been asking when and where they can get these beautiful creations.

Via a unique collaboration with Creature Comforts Alpacas of Errington, tomorrow only (Sunday, May 27), a select number of pieces will be available at the 100 Mile Fleece and Fibre Fair taking place at the Bradley Centre located on the Alberni Highway and Shearme Road. Stop by early for best selection and a chance to meet the artist as well. There are also a few limited edition buttons on display in the Farmgate store at Morningstar Farm / Little Qualicum Cheeseworks along with some of the ironwork and other metal items.
