Buttons Wanted

Posted on: August 24, 2018  |  

I have a healthy addiction for buttons.  Buttons of all shapes and sizes, 2-holed, 4-holed, all colours and any type of materials used to create them.  I do not discriminate.  I learned to sew at the age of 5 (on a treadle machine if you can believe it) and I am sure thousand of buttons ave passed through my fingers. The real reason for my passion for buttons is that I find them very, very theraputic. I love how they feel, how they look and often wonder what type of garment they were used for and when. They help calm me when I’m upset and and cheer me when I am sad.  I breaks my heart when I go to a yard or garage sale and the sellers tell me they “just threw out a box of them”.

If you have any buttons and you are not sure what to do with them and wouldn’t mind parting with them, I would love to give them a new home with all the other cast offs I’ve picked up over the years. Just call Karin @ (WPG) 204-589-6816, (LAKE) 204-349-8689, or (Cell) 204-228-6822.

Thanks

Well folks – we’ve reached 10,000 followers on our Facebook page – a long time personal goal of mine. Having administered this page since 2017 & having now reached this goal it will soon be time for me to move on & have someone else at WCA administer the page. Hoping to hand it over before end of February.The biggest jump in followers occurred during the 2021 Wildfires and during the 2022 floods as WCA kept cottagers & other park users informed- often 16 hour days during these events, always 7 days a week. And does anything say “Whiteshell” more than Daniel Alexander’s amazing wildlife videos & photos? We’ve had some of our Facebook posts reach well over 100,000 people & some posts were picked up by the media and made the news.Big thank you to Kristin Pingatore, Deborah Sequin & Angela Hogan who originally set up the WCA Facebook page & then trusted me to administer it all these years.Lastly a big thank you to all of you who contribute to our page by submitting photos, videos, news & stories.Be sure to support the WCA & whoever takes over this page in the days to come. ...
