Beginners through advanced temari stitchers are invited to join us!


Welcome to our forum for exploring the techniques and designs of the ancient folk art of Japanese temari. We are a group of experienced temari stitchers who freely exchange ideas and help answer questions that go beyond the basics of temari. We thrive on the exchange of thoughts and experience in the development of temari designs. The goal of this group is to explore the ancient craft of temari as an art form while respecting and honoring the traditions of the past.


TemariChallenge is moderated by six members of the Japan Temari Association. We live all over the world and bring diverse perspectives to the craft.


Please join us as we try to unravel the secrets of the Japanese masters. No, not their temari, just their techniques!


Our group is located here
