Event Details

Scandinavian Flag Ball with Vicki Nelson

April 15 Saturday: 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The Japanese tradition Temari originates from China, dating back about 1500 years ago. Back then, Temari was made from deer hide and used by nobles to play ball games. It is the Japanese symbol of perfection and a gift of joy and happiness. It is sometimes called a “mother’s love ball.” Ball patterns developed one from another and subjects grew, becoming inspired from cultures around the world. Now Temari balls are being transformed to represent other heritages.

Vicki Nelson’s love for sewing and craft began in her teen years when her grandmother taught her how to crochet. She has since fine-tuned her craft, studying under a “Master in the art of Temari” over the past six years. Vicki belongs to the Sons of Norway and has made Norwegian flag balls as ornaments for all five Scandinavian countries. Most recently she made 150 Norwegian flag balls for District Two Sons of Norway.

The instructor will supply all materials but please specify which Scandinavian flag you would like to make upon registration.

Cost: $18 for Members; $20 for General Admission
