Temari news May 9, 2013

I'm back from another wonderful week at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Total immersion in the art of temari allowed beginners to make C8s and C10s by the end of the week. We got into exploring multicenters temari, too. Talk about a jump start - more like a turbo boost! Thanks so much to Crystal, Shelley, Kathy, Carrie, Maritza and Sarah for coming to stitch with me in the mountains of North Carolina.  The small class sizes at the folk school and the creative atmosphere make it a very special place.

Thread order deadline - this Sunday!
Rainbow Gallery has a glittering assortment of threads perfect for temari.  Are you interested in purchasing a 300 yard spool? RBG takes special orders for these. Check out their website and let me know what you would like.  The price for 300 yards of Nordic Gold is $20.25 and 300 yards of Treasure Braid Petite is $24.75.  The price will be different for other kinds of thread and I can get a quote for you if you fancy something else. Send me an email (barb@japanesetemari.com) by midnight on Sunday, May 12, and I'll get back to you with a quote on the price.

I've dedicated a large portion of my website to an illustrated glossary of temari techniques, links to other fiber artists and resources for temari stitching. Please feel free to visit this section often. Download and print for your reference off-line. If you would like to be added to the links section, just let me know.
Happy stitching,
Barb Suess
