Christina Hughes' Profile

About

Hello etsy buyers & sellers! My name is Christina and I am the sole proprietor of Gratitude To Nature's boutique clothing shop, where I sell uniquely embellished apparel for woman and men.

My absolute love for unique clothing started quite interestingly. I grew up unlike most children in the United States, but similiar to the other over half a million children. While from the ages of seven to eighteen, I moved to eleven foster homes in ten years, yet ending up with my mom’s sister (my aunt), for my last four years of high school.

Even though it was impossible to learn not to attach myself to the families I always had to leave, I did learn my clothing and toys were always going to come with me, unlike each family. So, my special clothing and toys grew on me as a unique friendship does. It was always hard for me to get rid of unique clothes or toys that reminded me of…

My absolute love for unique clothing started quite interestingly. I grew up unlike most children in the United States, but similiar to the other over half a million children.

Even though it was impossible to learn not to attach myself to the families I always had to leave, I did learn my clothing and toys were always going to come with me, unlike each family. So, my special clothing and toys grew on me as a unique friendship does. It was always hard for me to get rid of unique clothes or toys that reminded me of a certain time in my life, where just as it was hard to let go of each family I had to leave. So, while in the seventh grade, I had the opportunity to live with a mother whom sewed among taking a sewing home economics class. This was a dream come true for me. I was finally able to create my own unique clothing I had come so accustomed to adoring along my journey.

Since unqiue clothing has such a special place in my heart, I feel truly blessed to share this love with all of you.

Thanks for your interest in my items, for I truly appreciate my customers!


***Fashion Degrees:

In June of 2005, I received my Associates degree in fashion design, merchandising, & general studies.

***Experience:
I started sewing in seventh grade, twenty years ago. I have been sewing consistently, nearly each week, for thirteen years in the spring of 2013.

I took my second sewing class, an apparel drafting pattern class, textiles among many others, for my fashion merchandising/design degrees I received in June of 2005. If you'd like to see a copy of my transcript to see the other fashion courses I have taken, please ask.

Moreover, I worked at a custom drapery shop for one year from 2004-5. My duties consisted of cutting, sewing, and serging beautiful custom draperies for interior designers.

However, I am mostly a self taught seamstress, who has learned through many hours of consistent sewing, reading and researching techniques.
