Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery and Beadwork in the Peranakan World is on at Singapore's Peranakan Museum till 26 March 2017.
This exhibition celebrates the art of nyonya needlework, a very visible part of Peranakan Chinese heritage. Spectacular curtains and hangings, delicate purses, handkerchiefs, and slippers are painstakingly stitched with miniscule beads, silk, plus gold and silver threads and used for special occasions or given as gifts.
Some of the finest examples of nyonya needlework, from the Peranakan Museum and major international collections, will be displayed.
The Peranakan Museum is open 10am to 7pm Mondays to Thursdays and weekends and from 10am to 9pm on Fridays
