I’m so excited to announce two book events here in Portland to celebrate the March 3 release of Button It Up! If you’re local, I would love it if you can stop by either or both of these, I think they’ll be a lot of fun.
The very first one is at Powell’s Books on Friday, March 20, at 7:30, all the way upstairs in the lovely Pearl Room. I’ll do a reading, sign books, and offer up some favorite bits and pieces from my own button collection to do a craft project with, too: button hairclips! Some of my Portland contributors will be there too, along with lots and lots of the 80 book projects. The Bead Simple event I did there last year was fantastic and I’m really looking forward to this one too, thank you to Powell’s for having me again.
Powell’s Books, 1005 W. Burnside St. in downtown Portland, 503-228-4651
I’ll also be doing a crafty event with my local contributors at Bolt Fabric Boutique the following weekend. Stop by the shop on the afternoon of Saturday, March 28 at 4:00 and do a craft project with me: button magnets + pushpins! Anyone who buys a copy of the book from Bolt will get a vintage button grab bag as a thank-you, and we’ll also be giving away a fantastic prize package during the event — fabric, gift certificates, buttons, and other crafty surprises. I’ll post some pictures when we put everything together!
