BUT­TON UP

Love Patchwork & Quilting - - OUT THERE -

Look­ing for a spe­cial gift for a sewing pal? The Nambu brass pa­per­weight is a sewing tool with a bit of heft we can't re­sist. Made in Osaka, Japan, they re­sem­ble out-sized but­tons and cun­ningly hold pen­cils, pens or even scis­sors while keep pat­terns, templates and fab­rics from ap­ping about as you work on your lat­est quilt­ing project. Made from solid brass, they're gor­geously tac­tile too, and will be­come sub­tly more tex­tured over time from han­dling. Each one comes el­e­gantly pack­aged in its own lux­u­ri­ous box – ideal as a *wow* Christ­mas present for south­ern hemi­sphere quil­ters. Find them at hand­son­work­shop.com.au/ shop
