The Mid-Autumn Festival is also called the Moon Festival or the Mooncake Festival. It traditionally falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Vietnamese lunar calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is the second most important festival in Vietnam after the Tet holiday. Vietnamese people celebrate it by gathering for dinners and lighting paper lanterns. One important event before and during the Vietnamese Mid-Autumn Festival is lion dancing.
Both non-professional and professional children groups perform dances on the streets or go to houses. If accepted by the host, “the lion” will come in and start dancing as a wish of luck.
Therefore, in this video, I’ll show you how to embroider lion dance performance.

Hiya! There are many embroidery artists in our beautiful country. Their skillful hands created unique works of floral and landscape embroidery. Many of them began to learn embroidery from the elderly artisans in the craft village when they were 6 or 7 years old. While they work independently, they have no official community. We built Hand Embroidery World to link embroidery artists, introduce our traditional embroidery items and embroidery techniques to the world.
