Tailor markets? Sewing stuff?

i went to these great tailor markets in shanghai (qipu lu markets, i think). is there anything like that here in beijing?

i've been to the tailor shops in ya show and unless you want a business suit or a chinese dress, there's not many other options. i want to get some chinese-style things made but using cotton, linen etc (NOT silk!)

also i want to buy things like sewing scissors and other bits & pieces (buttons etc). these markets in shanghai had everything but i thought, nah, i'll wait til i get back to beijing.... now i can't find the stuff i want here.

can anyone recommend a good one? ... is there one?

2 Places to try:

[b]Muxiyuan Fabric Market[/b]
Haihutun, South of Muxiyuan Qiao on Nansanhuan Lu (turn left at first traffic light after the bridge, go 200 m past bus station)

[b]Daxin Textiles[/b]
Northeast corner of Dongsi crossing, Dongcheng District (6403 2378)

Gosh, that [i]Insider's Guide to BJ [/i]is so handy!

thanks chiclets Smile

didn't even think of looking at that :oops:

I want to get my mother in law some nice sewing supplies, like needles and threads and a decorative box to organize it all in. Any suggestions of where to look?
