National Button Week is celebrated during the third week of March in honor of buttons and their unique place in our history. This year, it takes place from March 11 to 18. From button holding the ends of our clothes together and bringing a tinge of color to our outfits, to being great for arts and crafts, buttons fill our world with beauty, and we are so thankful for them. The week was conceived by the National Button Society to promote, preserve, and honor the rich history of buttons. Week-long exhibits are organized by button enthusiasts, and the unique forms of buttons are explored across the nation. For more information on the history and a button timeline click here.
