Gina Barrett began her career as a graphic designer and illustrator, which included covers for historical romantic novels. This led to a more intense study of costume, which in itself lead to a passion for historical passementerie, including buttons and other trimmings. She now provides bespoke items to costumers for major film & television, theatre, museums and fashion. As an avid collector of antique and vintage textile buttons, Gina continues to research and to write about both old and new techniques.
This 20 page Yorkshire Button book discusses the button making history, tools and materials used, basic techniques, stitches, finishing, thread hints and ideas for variation.
