Welcome to Sew Special • Button Heaven. We are situated in the quaint little Victorian town of Buninyong on the Midland Highway just out of Ballarat on the way to Geelong.

Established 10 years ago Sew Special • Button Heaven has been nurtured and cared for by owner Gael Fennell and is now the go to place for buttons.
What started out as a small selection of buttons for our customers has now grown to a collection of over 5000 buttons and is still growing (no, I don’t have an obsession with buttons). These buttons have been lovingly sourced from closing down sales, online auctions, manufacturers and designers.
If you are able to visit us and wish to purchase buttons please allow time for our expert staff to assist you with your choice, they know the buttons and have a passion for ensuring the right button is found for every need.
If you have a special request we will do our best to assist. Sending a sample of your fabric/wool will help us ensure the button will match or we may be able to make another suggestion. Unfortunately not all the buttons in the photos are true to colour despite our best efforts.
Over the 10 years there has been a change from using buttons purely for function, they have now become a major decorative item. Only the imagination limits what buttons can be used for such as brooches, necklaces, bracelets, belts and earrings all can be constructed using buttons and we sell many novelty buttons for this purpose.
Drop in to the shop and say hello if you are travelling our way as there are too many buttons to list online. Open Monday to Saturday we are also happy to open by appointment for travelling button lovers, just send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shop on 03 5335 5302.
We hope you enjoy our buttons as much as we do and look forward to them being a part of your next wonderful creation.
