I can now announce the exciting news I have been hinting at - the release of my first two instructional dvds!
Making Buttons and Making More Buttons show you how to make a really large selection of both tradional and modern buttons using passementerie techniques. Each title is a two-disc set and includes sections on materials and finishing as well.
The filming is at eye level - so you see what you would see if you were working the buttons yourself. You don't have to try to figure it out from a different angle. I give away alot of the little techniques I've developed over the years, as well as some of my unique designs!
The titles are menu-driven, and included an illustrated button chart so that you can choose which film you want to watch - and so which button you want to learn (or re-learn).
And you don't just have to want to learn these buttons for re-enactment or costume - these buttons look great on modern clothes and for all sorts of other embellishments.
This is only the start - there are other titles in the pipeline to ultimately have a whole series of how to dvds - The Making Passementerie series
Both DVDs are avalable in my shop - AND in both PAL and NTSC versions
