In researching sewn arts, I stumbled upon Suzhou embroidery. My understanding is that there is a province in China known for it's amazing embroidery. Since the Chinese New Year is approaching, I thought I'd share some of the works.

I love the traditional, historical pieces, because I'm partial to "ethnic" prints.

However, I am also sharing more modern pieces, as they show the range which these skilled artisans can go with their work.
