For nimble fingers

Hobby Town, a newly-opened shop in Glory Mall, is the place for craft enthusiasts. The shop sells nearly 2,000 DIY home dcor supplies - from delicate weaving needles to 1.3-m high paper models.

Tying Chinese knots is a breeze with a knotting template (36 yuan for a small one, 46 yuan for a big one), making it an ideal choice for beginners. By simply winding the knotting thread around the template in accordance with the numbers marked on it, one can make stylish knots in the shape of a flower, ball or tear-drops, which can then be strung into a necklace or converted into earrings.
