The “jumbo” temari site I found years ago is actually one of these competitions (the 32nd). I guess making that giant temari was one of their activities. Must be a fun bunch of gals!

Look at the size of the temari! They need another commentator though!

You can also see the size of the temari here and the precision of stitching is amazing.  Really interesting basket display to hang on a wall
