Chinese Crafters


Hello Sweet Friends!
I have not posted it seems like in so long and I really do have so much too Share from our recent trip to China. So I grabbed one of my favorite photos, of course it's Crafting and will tell you a bit about the Crafters I experienced in China.

One thing about the Chinese is they are a proud people. Their dream is to own a shop, live in it or above it. And whether it is Music, Cooking or Crafting they love to share with anyone passing by. Intimate Marketing is what I would call it. One on One.

Here is a young lady weaving right in front of the family store. She does this all day and sometimes will trade time with another family member. Everyone of her works of Art is available in her store. I purchased several pieces from her and they are all so soft to the touch and very nicely done. A few of them will be in my Boutique sometime this week for purchase. They are very reasonable as you will see, and are OOAK.
Have a Beautiful Week if you don't make it back over, Happy Thanksgiving!
I know I have so much to be Thank~full for, and a great portion of my Thanks are for you, my Sweet Friends, Loyal Customers and Supportive Colleagues!

  2. Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for sharing the pic! It reminds me of my trip to China many years back and the guide brought us to a souvenior shop where there were ladies who were doing chinese embroidery using thin silk threads. They were very talented.

    Can't wait to see which are the pieces you bought from the girl.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Nancy, the trip must have been amazing. I'm jealous of that girl. I LOVE to weave but haven't been able to do it since college. Can't wait to see what she made!
