  1. That’s amazing how those people were given the talent by God to be able to do that!!! I especially loved the piano!!

  2. Hello. Your button art selections are fabulous. I will refer to them in a workshop I am teaching in November at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. I have been doing button work that is a little different from your samples for several years and have shown across the USA, in Canada and have been included in books and magazines in the US, Germany and England. Please consider whether my work would add another example to your presentation. I can be found on a web search by my name. Thanks for considering this, Marie Bergstedt
