Ordering a V-Ruler
A tool that has been unique to
temari-making is a V-ruler. They are great little gadgets that are
simple to use as one method for dividing and marking a 10 Combination
Division. They were supplied through the Japan Temari Association in
Tokyo; the JTA agreed to allow them to be
Temarikai, in good faith only at the cost of purchase/shipping from the
JTA (supplies and related items sold through the JTA and Temari
Museum are what help to provide the operating funds for the
Association). However, the company which produced them for the JTA has
seems to have ceased operation. While there are a few remaining
available, most of the temari-making world has transitioned to the C10
A few V-Rulers are still available at cost (purchase
plus shipping from Japan) from the JTA for $3.00US per V-ruler. Please
for availability and further info, and indicate if you are within the US
or not. However, I urge you to take a look at the C10 Ruler option, as
VRulers will become extinct and the C10 Ruler is actually easier.
US orders for VRulers will need to include a stamped, self-addressed #10
(business letter size) envelope, along with the $3.00 (cash or check)
ruler cost. Orders outside of the US are $6.00US, and will be processed
through PayPal; higher cost covers PayPal fee and international postage.
Only international requests can be handled through PayPal.
