About Pegi Deitz Shea

American Cynthia Weill discovered the embroideries created in the village Quat Dong while she ran the education department of an international relief organization in Hanoi, Vienam. She thought the embroideries would make beautiful illustrations for a book, so she contacted an author friend, Pegi Deitz Shea, who has written about Southeast Asia since her visit there in 1989. Together they came up with the idea for Ten Mice for Tet. To create the illustrations, award-winning children's book illustrator To Ngoc Trang (pronounced Toe Knock Chang) drew the pictures to be embroidered. Then embroiderer Pham Viet-Dinh (pronounced Pam Viet Deen) laid the pictures over a piece of cloth and stuck pins through the picture's outlines. He sprinkled blue powder over the pinholes, which left the outline on the cloth when the picture was lifted. He then embroidered the cloth with cotton thread. A special camera photographed the embroideries so the book could be printed.
