A charter member of TalkTemari, Sarah originally learned Temari at JTA classes in Tokyo. Sadly, she was taken from us way too soon; you can read her story here:


Her Temari notes have been made available by her family so that others may be inspired and learn. All net proceeds of Sarah's Book support the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA USA.

Sarah's Book: Sarah Robinson's Temari Notebook was originally offered on data CD but is now (as of August 2011) solely by electronic delivery due to changes with the distributors. It is Sarah's notebook convereted to PDF files of her notes. There are 76 interpreted pattern pages (it's important to note that these are not original patterns of Sarah's but come from her teachers and previously published Japanese books etc., nor a beginner's how-to book; it's Sarah's interpreted notes). They range from basic beginner to some that will challenge the most advanced stitcher. There is also a page of Kanji characters and phrase translations that Sarah accumulated that can help (but really are not required). Not only does Sarah's Book provide pattern interps to work but it also will show you what keeping a temari notebook is all about. Any or all of the pages may be printed to create your own hard copy if you desire.

Please note and understand as the listing indicates the PDF collection is delivered electronically by zip file; this is the industry standard and handled on all computer operating systems. PDF files are viewable by most browsers, or via Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is a free download from Adobe.com.
