I'm making bow ties for a dance group. I originally put elastic on the back to put around the neck but some of them droop and they need to be pinned. Does anyone have an idea how to make or where to get a bow tie clip to slip maybe over the button perhaps.

Sounds like a fun project, Kerm. I haven't worked with these folks, Newark Dress Supply (http://www.newarkdress.com/history.htm), but they say they carry tie clips. Their catalog isn't online--They offer a phone number on their order form. I think for a specialized item like this, if you can't see it in person and read the back of the package, a telephone rep is a good place to start.
Here's another, Greenberg&Hammer (http://www.greenberg-hammer.com/store.asp?CatID=12), and again, no pic available, so I'd recommend calling them to be sure you're getting what you're after.

Many years ago I got bow tie clips at Hancocks.

I have used the following for this purpose......
a sewn on paper clip
a bulldog clip - one of those foldback ones with the 2 handles
a button on the tie, and button hole on the top
and a plain old safety pin works every time
I'm happiest when I am sewing!
