The Tutor

Jen Best was taught by her Grandmother to make Dorset buttons, to knit, crochet, sew and embroider. A few years ago she learnt to spin and felt. Her addiction to wool and woolly pursuits has lasted for over 30 years. She has been teaching buttons for almost as long as she has been making them. She designs knitting and crochet patterns, all involving Dorset buttons. She also designs Dorset button jewellery and button kits.
