Notes:

Temari balls were introduced to Japan 600 years ago by the Chinese and were originally made as toys for juggling, by winding kimono fabric tightly around itself to form a ball. Over time they have become more of an art form, with intricate stitching in many designs making them a beautiful decoration for the home. The technique has changed to wrapping yarn or thread around a circular base made from wood or styrofoam.

You can use temari balls as decorations in your home but if you are looking for a special present for friends or family, temari balls are also a treasured gift as they are a symbol of loyalty and friendship.

Join Maureen Brown for a morning of hand-embroidery and creating your own temari ball to take home, along with the skills to make many more.
