Crafting with Buttons in Moscow!

Yes, that’s right – we were crafting with buttons in Moscow this past September.  We were invited to participate at a Home Exhibiton at Gela, which is our European Distributor. Twice a year they hold  exhibitions which are open to their customers who participate in an all day event of Make & Takes, presentations and seminars along with some fun and games!

The theme of their exhibition of course was the Winter 2014 Olympics as you can see from their Hedgehog mascot!

Although there may have been a language barrier – crafting and creating is universal.  As you can see from the photos from our trip, everyone – yes that’s right EVERYONE had fun creating the festive Holiday BUTTON Trees!!

Some women waited patiently as they look on while Button trees were being created by others.
