Thank you to Ronnie Kauk for her many recent button contributions to WRBA!
The information she provides encompasses the modern history of fashion,
designers, all told through the buttons. I had fun thumbing through her two
volume books, finding related photos, videos and articles to bring you
interactive button fun on WRBA! Ronnie is a new member of WRBA, in support of our
Button Album project!
