Beaker Button is the brainchild of Jen Best, who dreamt of a fibre craft studio where she could stock fabulous yarns and fibres for discerning yarn enthusiasts. Jen wanted a place to design and make Dorset buttons so the world would know how beautiful they were. A place where she could explore her passion for colour and texture in textiles. This is what Beaker Button is all about. They are part of the Fairground Craft and Design Centre at Weyhill in Hampshire, so if you are nearby drop in and have a good explore of their shop.
Beaker Button design and make their own range of Dorset button kits, from simple buttons to beautiful pieces of jewellery. You can watch them creating while you browse the gorgeous range of yarns and fibres, including Beaker Button hand-dyed yarns, Malabrigo, Rowan, Manos del Uruguay, Fyberspates, Rosie’s Moments, Unbelivawool, Adriafil and Red Heart yarn. They have a lovely range of patterns, commercial and their own designs. You will also find tools and accessories from Kinki Amabari and Hiya Hiya, locally made stitch markers, yarn bowls and ceramic buttons.
Depending on the time of year they also have a great range of washed and carded fleece, locally dyed fibres and commercial tops for spinning and felting.
Beaker Button will be joining us at our 2019 show on Sunday only and running a workshop to make a Crosswheel Dorset Button – booking essential to guarantee a place.
