TalkTemari | main / Talk Temari Discussion Group
TalkTemari is the companion discussion group to TemariKai.com ( http://www.temarikai.com ). It has been going strong since 1998, in one form or another, but its origins go back to a handful of people who  gathered together online in order to figure out & learn the ancient folk art of Japanese temari. Members are crafters/enthusiasts of these embroidered thread-wound balls, dedicated to learning about, preserving and crafting temari in the traditional form. TalkTemari welcomes everyone interested in the art regardless of experience (or not). The group strives to provide basic information right on up to advanced challenges, with the focus on authentic & traditional/historical Japanese teachings. We also explore related cultural and historical topics as they integrate into the understanding of Temari.
