"To complete a temari, like finishing a great book is like losing a friend. But each sequel is like finding gold. It gets better and better! Come join our circle." - Bob Mauller, Retired Educator, Pasadena, CA
"Vandervoort's books have put Temari on the front burner...one of our featured favorites." - Mary Mulligan and Susan Leonard, Owners, Weaver's Needle and Frame, Newbury Park, CA
"It is easier and more satisfying to learn from a well-written, illustrated book than a live teacher. Here you have the opportunity to learn by yourself, a most enjoyable and ancient idea from the Orient. It is a winner. A truly unique and dazzling craft. . . an ancient star shines again." - Patricia Nimocks, Founder Society of Craft Designers
