Hoi An needlework

Based on what is written in the ancestral tablet at tailors’, the founder of the sewing vocation in Hoi An was a woman named Nguyen Thi Sen.
She was said to be born on the 12th of the lunar December and die on the 12th of the lunar January. Most of the tailors in Hoi An hold the Sewing Founder Worshiping Ceremony on her birthday. The worshiping ritual is a tradition to Hoi An people in general and tailors in particular. The worshiping area in each family in Hoi An is a holy place which helps maintain superstitious beliefs in every family member’s consciousness.
