Art of Silk: A Profile of Suzhou Embroidery

If you hang out on eBay like I do, you will eventually run into a mention of Suzhou embroidery.  If you follow links, you will eventually discover Art of Embroidery, a Chinese company that produces both hand embroidery and machine embroidery.  I didn't know anything about the company, however, until I read this profile.  Don't miss the video!  The two handed stitching technique, splitting the silk, and the style of frame used will all be of interest to needle pointers.

Here is the company's website.   I found the King's Silk article especially interesting but the eye candy is incredible!

Please pour a glass of your favorite beverage and spend some time exploring the delights of Suzhou embroidery.
