Heqing Women's Federation and the Publicity Department of Heqing County Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) jointly organized a ceremony at Hualong Village of Jindun Township in Heqing County, southwest China's Yunnan Province, on September 6 to confer the village with the title of "Top Ten Yunnan Village Engaged in Embroidery".

Along with other local government departments, Yunnan Women's Federation kicked off this year's campaign in May to select the top ten villages engaged in the embroidery craft. After intense competition and professional judgments, Hualong and another nine candidate villages took the title in the campaign when the final result was announced on August 13.

The small village boasts a long history of engagement in thee embroidery business and a large number of professional practitioners.

Its manual products range from wedding dresses and embroidery shoes to teen shoes and hats as well as other ornaments. Due to their high quality and beauty, these handmade items have been collected by enthusiasts and utilized by lecturers as models in training sessions. In addition, they are also very popular amongst customers in Singapore and other countries.

On the sidelines of the awards ceremony, over 80 villagers from Hualong and Liuhe Townships attended a lecture given by Yang Wenhuan, an embroidery expert in the southwestern province, about furthering their crafts in embroidery.
