Does anyone know where I can get toggles for a wool blend winter coat? I need chocolate brown to match brown berber collar, in a fairly large size--2 or 3 of them..anyone have ideas? aka "horseowner"

Have you tried Hancock's and Joann's. I have bought toggle buttons at both stores. If they don't have what you want, try ebay.

Fabric.com. I was on there just yesterday. Found some nice ones--in horn, metal and plastic.

A recent article in Vogue Patterns magazine (Oct/Nov 2011) shows you how to make your own leather toggles. I haven't tried them yet but they are on my "to-do" list for my wool winter coat. The article is by Kathryn Brenne.

I haven't looked but both Waechters and Sawyer Brook Fabrics have lots of buttons on their website. Sawyer Brook has a button matching service if you buy fabric from them and they might be willing to ship buttons if you send them a sample. Lots of yarn shops also sell buttons that are suitable for hand knit sweaters and toggles might be available in them too.
