Sunny Embroidery, a fashionable embroidery shop, is located in 798 Art Zone. Like many other shops in this modern art area, Sunny Embroidery is distinguished with its unique embroidery of posh style.

The owner, Ms. Li, opened this shop with her Australian business partner. Her embroidery works mix modern western style with traditional Chinese art. She told me that for this reason, many of her customers are from overseas.

I first found an eye-catching embroidery based on the artwork of Van Gogh. It looks just the same as the original one, except embroidered. Many items here are based on western themes.

Then I noticed a photo of a British man holding his embroidery with the word "nothing". I asked Ms. Li why she made that. She told me that a British man came and asked for an embroidery of the word "nothing." As Sunny Embroidery accepts custom orders, she agreed. She learned that in Britain, the word "nothing" sometimes has the special meaning. When it's read in the mirror, you can see the converse word of "nothing". So it is in fact, something.

There are also some other embroideries. Some are based on the murals of Naxi Nationality. Some are done on lotus feet shoes. They make good souvenirs.

As the shop takes custom orders. Some customers send their pictures or postcards to the shop to have their embroidery work done.

What I appreciate:
The traditional Chinese art demonstrated in a stylish way

What customers appreciate:
Fine craft, easy to communicate with the shop owner in English
