About the course
Temari Balls are an old Japanese art form. They are thread covered balls which are stitched on with colorful threads. The designs can be intricate or simple. In this class, students will learn to cover a Styrofoam ball with sewing thread and then divide it into equal parts. Learning to divide the ball evenly is one of the most important challenges for getting a pleasing over-all design. Then we will stitch or wrap the ball with colored embroidery floss or other fine threads, finally turning it into a beautiful ornament.

About the instructor
I began working with fiber at age 9, when I learned to knit. I began spinning in 1984 and weaving a year later. In 2000 I earned a Certificate of Spinning from Ontario Handspinners and Weavers. Somewhere along the way a weaving friend introduced me to the world of bead weaving and I acquired another addictive pastime. I love to use bright colors and include glittery threads and beads. I want the people wearing my creations to stand out. I have taught at the Newark Museum, Newark, NJ, regional conferences and many guild retreats and workshops. I am past president of the Handweavers Guild of American, and have served on its Board of Directors for eight years.
