Southern Chinese Textiles

Had the opportunity to visit Judith today. She has a collection of Southern Chinese textiles. She had visited Kings Lynn Embroidery Guild and allowed me to view the textiles again. They are astounding seeing them so close up. The Chinese costumes are made in sections and then joined together to form elaborate layered pieces. The embroidery stitches are intricate and on mass.  Hearing the stories and seeing the photographs of Judith’s five visits added to the experience of handling the textiles. 

For actual photos and inspiration of journeys made visit

There is a translation button and click costumes.
