Inquiry Topic: The Embroidery of Xizhou
I have decided to work on the reasearch of embroidery. Cross stitching is a hobby of mine. I usually do this as an leisure activity, while knowing embroidery is just an advanced and the original idea of cross stitch, so I have quite an interest in studying this subject. This topic is important to me because I always wanted to inquire about the history of cross-stitching, or in other words, what developed into cross-stitching. Embroidery designs are often found in Chinese clothing since thousands of years ago, and learning about this technique will give me some enlightenments to Chinese fashion (which I am also interested in) and the traditions or cultures related to clothing of not only Xizhou, but also of China.
