WSBS Standing Rules

Every year in September, WSBS holds our annual Button Show. In 2014, we are holding our show on Sept. 12 & 13 at Trinity Pres. Church, Shoreline. Judging will be on Friday, and the show will be open to the public on Saturday Sept. 13, 2014. Our theme is Hooray For Hollywood. Please watch our page on Show Information, or our Bulletin for more information.

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 $12.50 for an individual adult and $15.00 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!
