Dorset buttons were made by hand in Dorset from the early 1600’s to 1851. They were shipped all over the world and were even worn by royalty. This cottage industry employed over 4000 people at its height, making over 100 different button types. Their popularity died overnight after the Great Exhibition of 1851, when a new button machine was showcased. Many families were left destitute and emigrated to escape starvation, and the art was more or less lost. The W.I. and others have kept this fabulous craft alive and now you can learn how to make them too.

This kit provides everything you need to make three flower buttons 2.6cm across, including full instructions, needle, rings and thread.
