Temari is a centuries-old fibre art from Japan where threads are embroidered onto a tightly wound thread ball in very specific patterns. Part of the draw (and difficulty) of temari is it’s symmetry.

Stitches can go in any direction because of the random wrapped thread surface of the ball. They are not limited to up and down, side to side and diagonally as with traditional stitchery.
