Ok, I am trying to make a Carlorimetry (for me) and a (eek) sweater (for my mom). Both of these projects will need buttons.

Where is your favorite spot to find buttons? I have a HobbLobb in town, but I haven't gone there yet.

TIA

I have a small tub of buttons that Grandma Dora gave me a couple of years ago and I haven't bought buttons in ages. But just about anywhere that sells fabric ought to be a good place look.

I troll Carboot and table top sales looking for cheap clothes with good buttons - if it's a hand-knitted thing it's a bonus!

I've had good luck at Joann's for buttons.

JoAnn's is my first stop, if I don't have enough in my button box. My knitting shop has some beautiful ones, too.

i like mj trimming, http://www.mjtrim.com they have a pretty good selection of buttons and other stuff, like purse handles.
