I was thinking of purchasing a button maker, but they are craazy expensive. I don't want to buy one that ends up being crap and then have to buy another one. So I was wondering if anyone on here has one and would they recommend it? I'm thinking of getting like 1in or 1 1/4in one. Thanks!

I've had one for 10+ years and it works just fine!  I've used it mainly at school (I'm a psychologist at a large university) to advertise events.  I also used it for a Halloween costume.  I'd suggest thinking about what you'd use it for and how often.  I've had it for forever and am still working on the supplies that came with it!  Was it worth the money?  I love crafty things and if I use it more than once, I think it's worth it.  Obviously, I've used it more than once.

I had a button maker when I was younger, thanks to my older brother.  I don't remember what brand it was, but I do know that it was the sort that sat on a table, not the sort that looks like a modified pair of pliers, and it worked very well.  It took a while to get used to, and it took a bit of strength, but it was fun to fool with, and none of my buttons ever came apart.  I think it's the sort of thing where you get what you pay for, but as another poster said, you usually get a lot of supplies with a beginner set.
