The Chinese Tapestry World

Thanks to Needlepoint Now magazine, I have a link to a beautiful but slightly sad video of a Chinese lady and her apprentice who create intricate needlepoint reproductions of paintings on penelope canvas.  It's a specialized art with a limited audience I expect but it is very beautiful and when you consider they transfer the design after dying the crewel weight wools…!

Sorry, Shirlee. It worked fine for me just now. I have no idea why it won't work for you, too.

This did make me sad for the lovely lady who loved her needlework so much... Liz
