We asked Temari expert Diana Vandervoort to share a Temari project with Kreinik web site visitors. If you've never tried this fun — and gorgeous — technique, you'll want to read on for the details. We chose a snow-themed design as a project for a cozy, curl-up winter’s day. For more details and non-snow-themed projects see Diana Vandervoort’s website and book, Temari Gifts: Japanese Thread Balls and Jewelry.
