WSBS Standing Rules

(Most) every year in September, WSBS holds our annual Button Show. However, in 2019, we are holding a Workshop instead. Bring along your trays from Nationals to talk about and learn from. Click on the link for the sign-up sheet!

The NBS National is coming to Portland, OR from August 4-10th! We plan to attend the National show, rather than put on a show of our own the following month. Check out the NBS website for more information on the National show!





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). Save $5.00 by choosing our new electronic newsletter! 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!
