Lady Teacher 
Written and photographed by Lin Hsin-Chen  

 I went to Hsiu-Yueh’s solo exhibition; she is a member of TAQS.
I found an interesting story about an old lady and I would like to share this with everyone.
There was a moving story behind one of the artwork in her solo exhibition.   
In the meanwhile, quilt lovers, like us, can reflect on the sense that the story conveyed.
Hsiu-Yueh was holding a pair of shoes that was made by a 96 year-old lady.
The old lady didn’t have to draw any patterns; she only relied on her eye estimate and her creative experience. She could sew the same size of Lotus Shoes for bound feet with these 2 factors.
Her amazing story was reported by many media, and brought lots of people to her place to learn her skill.
She never stinted on imparting her skill to people.
But she sighed…their apprenticeships were not mature enough, and they were not seeking increasing perfection. They practiced what they have just learned from; they should not do this.
The old lady passed away last year. Hsiu-Yueh made a pattern artwork, embroidered shoes, to cherish her and appreciate her life of selfless teaching.
