There are a limited number of openings for the Temari workshop August 18th to be held in Farmington.  This will be a fun time learning a technique new to most of us.  It will be taught by Cathlena Burr.  Here is what she says about Temari:

TEMARI or Japanese "handball" was adopted by the Japanese in the 7th century from the Chinese and over time turned into an art form. Previously a way to make children's toys out of recycled clothing, it has become an ornament of beautiful embroidery given as gifts of good luck and well wishes. Temari is a wonderful way to play with and experiment with color. 

Use the Contact Us form if you are interested in attending.

July 21st is our annual picnic.   Join us at Karen’s house for food, fun and friends.  You’ll be treated to lots of show-and-tell from our workshop with Anita Mayer.
