She remembers that just a few days after her mother had surgery, the woman in her 70s jumped out of her bed and sat in front of her embroidery frame, telling others not to disturb her to encourage her to rest.

"We thought she was working, but she regarded embroidery as her way of relaxing. That's what Su embroidery means to us. The needle is our paint brush, while silk threads are the paint. We can express our ideas and emotions on fabric and, in doing so, find peace in mind," says Zou.
