Button Stick


Made in the USA


These hardwood button sticks are used to make thread (Dorset) buttons for shirts & other undergarments. They are each hand crafted by our own craftsman in Illinois Territory out of walnut & maple. You can learn to make your own thread buttons by watching How to Make Thread Buttons with William Booth, Draper or directions for making thread buttons are included in The Lady’s Guide to Plain Sewing Book 1. Linen thread 16/2 in white, off white, or unbleached work well to make thread buttons & you can use a blunt tapestry needle to make these. Button sticks also work as a stiletto¬†for making strong eyelets.
