Buttonmania - ASG Industry Partner

Kate Boulton of Buttonmania joined the Australian Sewing Guild Inc. after visiting Perth over the Christmas holidays and taking along her special vintage buttons for sale. Kate’s very happy to be an Industry Partner and get to know more about Guild members and what they are looking for in terms of buttons, buckles, and belts.

Kate bought her first button business 21 years ago and she is as passionate about buttons now as she was then!

Since then she has steadily increased her range including mostly European, high-end buttons (including vintage buttons) but also has budget-priced buttons for craft projects.

Kate’s bespoke, handmade covered buttons and belts have graced the dresses, suits and jackets of some of Australia’s best-known designers of haute couture, bridal gowns, ballet, theatre and movie costumes.
