We are currently working on a new line of products for The Golden Button. Maura Bergman (makes bags and teaches sewing at the shop) and Kate Gorham (owner of The Golden Button) are joining forces to create natural woodland themed: bags, towels, bibs, napkins and holiday products. These items will be available for purchase in the coming weeks. Every item is screen printed and sewn locally!!! Many products are made with up-cycled materials and have vintage fabrics  and hand sewing incorporated into the final piece!
