WSBS Standing Rules

Every year in September, WSBS holds our annual Button Show. In 2018, our theme will be "Wonders of the World", and will be held at the Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1515 N. 160th St., Shoreline, WA. Our show will be open to the General Public on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Club members are encouraged to attend our early get together and judging on Sept 13 & 14th. Please check our Show Information page, or our Bulletin for more information as it becomes available.





We welcome visitors to our meetings and annual show, and would love to have other button collectors as members of the WSBS. Memberships run from January to December, and are $20.00 for an individual adult and $25.00 for a shared membership (two adults, same address, one Bulletin). Junior members (18 years and under) are also welcomed, with membership of $5.00 for an individual Junior, or $6.00 for a shared Junior membership (two juniors, same address, one Bulletin). Some of the benefits of being a WSBS member:
  • Members receive copies of the WSBS Bulletin
  • Members may enter trays in our annual competition
  • You will make many button friends!
