How do our buttons grow?
The JABC family is growing — a new logo, a new website, a new book, and a new buttoneer!
While nothing can replace your neighborhood shops for purchasing supplies, we know you want to see EVERYTHING we make. Our new website makes it possible to tell you about our latest button adventures and make sure you will always have access to our entire collection. Many changes are still being made but we hope you visit us soon at www.justanotherbuttoncompany.com.
In the coming weeks we plan to introduce the Just Another Button Company team as we tell you who we are and what we do here. You’ll meet mixers and drillers and slicers and bakers but for fun let’s start with our newest employee—in fact she hasn’t made her first button yet.
My daughter –and JABC designer—Rachel and her husband Joshua are expecting a baby girl very soon!
Our new little Miss Button will spend her first years at the button company observing our work and certainly spreading happiness. We expect we may travel a bit less for a while, but you should see an extra touch of whimsy in everything we do—the delightful effect of working under a special sort of sunshine.
We’re all excited here — want to join in the fun? Be the one person who guesses closest to the baby’s weight and day/hour/minute of her birth (we’ll draw a name if multiple guesses are correct.) What will you win if your guess is the closest? One of each button we make—at last count that was over 1200 buttons!
Miss Button’s due date is November 30, 2013. Her dad weighed 7 lbs at birth and her mom 7 lbs 12 oz. What’s your guess? Post a comment to enter the contest, one entry per person. We’ll accept entries through November 24 or until Rachel calls me to say today’s the day!
