Beaker Button


Beaker Button is the brain child of Jen Best, who dream of a fiber craft studio to stock fabulous yarns and fibers for discerning yarn enthusiasts. Jen also wanted a place to design and make Dorset buttons so the world would know how beautiful they were. Many of Jen’s patterns feature these buttons to beautiful effect. Pattern pages have marked links to the shop’s Ravelry page.
