Approximately two hundred Bouyei and Miao women gathered together at Sanglang Primary School on March 3 for an embroidery competition consisting of both manual embroidery and line drawing contests.
“I have never been to school. I acquired drawing skills from elders and my friends during childhood and practiced for many years,” said Luo Birong, a sixty-three years old participant.
Human-powered machines for separating cotton seeds, spinning wheels and looms were also presented at the completion. Freshly prepared embroidery and batik sheets were exhibited for local residents to showcase the amazing traditional Chinese folk handicrafts.
