If you are a maker of Temari - or otherwise interested in them - and would like to communicate and share with others that enjoy temari, you are invited to join Talk Temari, a Yahoo Groups list dedicated to discussion about temari. The list was created in June of 1999 at the request of early website readers. It has thrived and grown, being much enjoyed by hundreds of people now (Jan 2005). There are folks from most of the US states as well as many European and Asian countries.
Talk Temari is usually
is an unmoderated email list. Messages posted to the list are receieved
by the entire list membership; replies to a message post back
to the list membership. For private communication with a list member,
your own new message to that person. Please remember that the list
is growing and that messages posted to the list should be of a nature
is of interest to everyone, or at least a majority of the group. If
note is more directed to one specific person please reply
to that person, off the list. Messages will be moderated only if these
few rules are not respected. Should you do find the occasion to post
an off-topic note, please indicate OT in the subject line.
Please note - as of summer
2003 due to the list being infilatrated by porn spammers, policy
was set to automatically place new members on moderation until
such time as you either introduce yourself to me via an email or post
to the list with an appropriate message. Once you emerge as a valid
person and member interested in temari then you will be taken off of
moderation and your messages will post to the list immediately upon
your sending them. By screening new subscriptions in this manner I can
head off any unwanted obnoxious message content making it to the list
(even though I still have to screen it out - ugh).
Members on the list have options of how they would like to receive their messages from the group. Normally they will be delivered as they are sent. You may chose instead to receive only a daily summary, a daily digest, or no messages to your inbox at all and view the discussion on the Yahoo groups website. You can control your message delivery through your account. The group has other benefits as well - click here to read more.
Messages are archived,
and may be viewed on the Yahoo Groups web site. Please do not use the
to discuss other topics or to circulate images (due to the archive
space they take up). If you have an
or other files to share with the group, please use the Yahoo groups
that are available, or set up an online photo album with any of the
online free services that are available. If you hav questions on
List Master and we'll be able to make other arrangements (honest!).
TalkTemari members also are able to
share files and photos with each other through the services provided
through Yahoo Groups as well as participate in the online Swap and Sell
Meet (database) to trade out temari supplies you no longer like or use
with others. In addition, other great experiences like the Great International Temari Swap, as well
as regional StitchIns happen through
the TalkTemari list.
I ask that when you join,
you post a message introducing yourself
and telling a bit about yourself - and you may also view
previous messages on the list using located on the Join In contents
