2021 -- Looking for the Bright Spots
Remember Beau & Belle Snow Tuffets? Creating this Valentine pair kept me occupied during COVID recovery last January: sleep a while, sew a while; sleep some more; repeat. I stitched both tuffets by hand--perfect, as I spent many a day just sitting on my bed. Eventually the Snow couple would become a sewing pattern, but for the moment they were just a bright spot in a gloomy month.
It Began with a Snowman
If you were following Just Another Button Company in 2011, you'll remember the crazy ambitious idea we had to celebrate our 15th year in business with "15 Fabulous Pincushions." We were 15 and Fabulous, and we did it, starting with Jabco the Snowman.
Over the years since, we published over 50 wool pincushion patterns--all carefully written so all sewers can successfully make the pincushions, even beginners without a machine.
Now flash forward to 2021--our 25th year in business. We've been making plans for wild and wonderful projects and celebrations. It's a big deal for a small business to make it to year 25, right? At the beginning of January, we updated our website and social media with a new logo and prepared to jump into the plans feet first.
