About

The Western Regional Button Association (“WRBA”) was formed in 2003 to further the fellowship of those who share a love of buttons and to add to our knowledge about buttons.

WRBA publishes a quarterly newsletter that shares educational button articles, button photographs, work sheets, etc.

WRBA also hosts a Button Show & Sale in Reno, Nevada, every two years, offering educational presentations as well as a button sales event.
