Description

Love a button? Wouldn’t you love it even more if you had it in two materials? Join Sue Dickout and Chris Shreve in a chat exploring this Going Green topic. Have a look at our examples and shop your own collection for a new take on button pairs. Sue Dickout was introduced to button collecting by her mother in the 1970s, and then by the Ottawa Valley Button Club in Ottawa, Canada, starting in 2008. She has been club president, member of the NBS Board of Directors, and was elected NBS Secretary in 2022. Sue has attended and volunteered at most National shows since her first in Denver in 2009, while always searching for more beautiful buttons, especially glass in metal and steel. When Chris Shreve was sent home with her grandmother’s buttons in 1981, she didn’t have a clue that she’d eventually become an active button collector. A decade had passed after receiving those buttons when a new friend introduced Chris to the Michigan Button Society’s shows. That was the beginning. Chris has been a member of the MBS, the NBS, and two local clubs in Michigan. She’s served as secretary/treasurer and president for the West Michigan Buttoneers; secretary, chair of competition, and bulletin editor for the Michigan Button Society, and the 2006 NBS Convention treasurer when the convention was held in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Currently, Chris holds the office of president for the Michigan Button Society. She’s also the NBS’s web editor and volunteers as NBS Store Manager. Some of Chris’ favorite buttons are Division I glass (especially swirl backs), bulldogs, and materials mounted in silver.
