Cross stitch, an art first originated in Europe, is incredibly popular in China today, especially with the young girls. Although cross stitching has changed quite a bit moving to the east, I found a small shop that still holds true to the origin of this art. The shop is aptly named European Cross Stitch.

I found the shop near the D exit of Chang Chun Jie subway station. It felt warm and comfortable as I stepped inside. According to the friendly shop assistant, the most popular product sold here are wall decorations. Prices ranged from RMB 100 to RMB 300 or so, depending on their sizes. However, if you choose to make it by yourself, you can typically save up to 2/3 of the original price.

Besides wall decorations, the shop also provides more practical cross stitch products. I personally liked the couch pillows which they can stitch your favorite design for (RMB380). I also liked the apron too (RMB150). As these were items I would look at every day, it felt more important that they be more special.

What I appreciate:
Cushion, Apron and the comfortable atmosphere

What customers appreciate:
Decorations, Tapestry
