Rosemary Bell, Shihan, Japan Temari Association

Congratulations to Rosemary Bell who just passed level 3 certification with the Japan Temari Association. 

Rosemary is from Texas and is one of the most talented temari stitchers I know. When she first started stitching temari, she sent me a few of her creations because she had never seen any at all and wondered if she was stitching them correctly. I have an evaluation sheet of standard skills just for that purpose but had to call Rosemary and tell her that I had never seen such beautifully stitched temari, with pearl 8, no less! I could see nothing to improve and was inspired to improve the accuracy of my own stitching.

I know Rosemary will continue to be a wonderful teacher for those lucky students around Mineola, Texas!
