About Button and Needlework Boutique

We started our shop in 1996.  We were originally located on Johnson Street in "Old Town".  We started the shop with literally a few dozen buttons styles and then grew to include needlework patterns, fabrics and notions.  It was a small but busy shop and in 5 years we grew out of our space and moved to a larger spot on View Street.

This is our 25th year and during this time we have added to our offerings and carry knitting yarns, needles, patterns, and knitting supplies as well and needlework and buttons.

We have been featured in The New York Times "Where to go in Trounce Alley", and on CTV News Vancouver Island's "Style File".  We were also voted as "One of the Most Beautiful Needlework Shops in the World." by Inspirations Magazine.

Being located in Beautiful Victoria, BC, we have met many people from all over the world.  Victoria is a tourist destination and the combination of the local community and the tourism community blend well together for a wonderful clientele.
