Made in the USA
These hardwood button sticks are used to make thread (Dorset) buttons for shirts and other undergarments. They are each hand crafted by our own craftsman in Illinois Territory out of walnut and maple. Directions for making thread buttons are included in The Lady's Guide to Plain Sewing Book 1. Linen thread 16/2 in white, half bleached, or unbleached work well to make thread buttons and you can use a blunt tapestry needle to make these. Button sticks also work as a stiletto for making strong eyelets.
