|We began as a custom cushion and slipcover workroom in 2003, but our single-minded fascination with button machines quickly took over. Covered buttons are our passion... seriously. We're geeky like that.
Over time, our traditional markets have rapidly expanded to include drapery, upholstery, modern apparel, historical and fantasy costuming, marine, automotive, luggage, footwear, sporting equipment, leather work, novelties, headwear, religious vestments, ceremonial and academic robes, and crafts. We are constantly amazed at the diverse ways in which covered buttons are used. Thrilled, but amazed.
As an American company, we are deeply committed to purchasing inventory directly from American mills and factories. We do reluctantly stock a few foreign-made products, but only if they are unavailable domestically. We also indicate country of origin of everything we sell because we believe you should be as informed as we are.
Workroom Buttons is 100% family owned and operated. Our CBO [Chief Button Officer], Dede O'Hair, started sewing on her mother's Kenmore at the tender age of five. Her award-winning work has appeared on the A&E Television Network and is often showcased in regional publications. She is a frequent contributor to several trade journals, and teaches at industry conferences throughout the country.
