I've been stitching temari since 2000 and decided to organize some photos of the temari I've made and share them in a new album. I'll be adding to it as I stitch more.


Many of the temari that I make are from books published in Japanese by the Japan Temari Association members. Photos of these temari have this attribution: "As a certified member, Kyoujyu (Level 4), of the Japan Temari Association, Barb has been granted permission to teach and publish and sell this design." Have a look at my website to learn more about temari and about the JTA.
