Oh, my goodness... *blush* Thank you for such a nice introduction!

Absolutely! You're limited to using quilt-weight fabrics, and two kinds of backs (wire-eye and flat), but they are an excellent way to start using covered buttons. And EVERYONE should use covered buttons. NOTE: I am in the process of overhauling our (extremely outdated and cringe-worthy) website, so please know we carry a LOT more than is listed. Thanks!
