Wooden Trains with Britex Button Wheels

December 20, 2011 by Britex Fabrics 2 comment(s)

Over 1,000 folks made crafts at the Randall Museum during their Holiday Craft Day on December 3rd. Britex Fabrics was pleased to help out with a donation of 1,200 buttons, which were used by the children as train wheels on the wooden trains that they crafted in the museum's woodshop. The Randall Museum is owned and operated by the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department, and features a live animal exhibit, a woodshop, art and ceramics studios, a lapidary workshop, a 188-seat theater, a greenhouse, and gardens.

    I recently completed two projects made from fabulous fabric brought back to Canada from Britex last June.

    A very nice Missoni knit turned into a great Line-A dress:

    And gorgeous silk and broderies allowed for this draped dress for Christmas: see the first three picutre on

    Thank you Britex for these fabulous fabrics!
