CHRISTINE GORN's Profile

About

HELLO AND WELCOME EVERYONE!

My name is Christine and my home is here in the beautiful city of Simi Valley, which is surrounded by hills and mountains and great vegetation and a 30 minute drive to the Pacific coast, in sunny California. It’s a joy for me to wake up in the morning and take my daily walk with my husband, Michael, who is a professional historian. He is a great mentor and inspiration to me, and has encouraged me to take my talents and go on line with them. So here I am, quite a new experience for me.
I have one son James Lenn and one grandson, Jason 10 years old and one granddaughter, “Lady” Rachel 7 years old, who I named my shop after.
I grew up in Europe in a family of six sisters who are all highly talented. I learned some of my craft from them, but also got professional schooling and training in Europe, as well as at the Air Force Academy…

HELLO AND WELCOME EVERYONE!

I have one son James Lenn and one grandson, Jason 10 years old and one granddaughter, “Lady” Rachel 7 years old, who I named my shop after.
I grew up in Europe in a family of six sisters who are all highly talented. I learned some of my craft from them, but also got professional schooling and training in Europe, as well as at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. My College degree is in Psychology.
After I retired six years ago I became interested in oil painting, but my passion is working with beautiful fabrics, coordinating textures and seeing what works. I have been sewing and designing clothes really for as long as I can remember. Making dresses for my two best friends,Joan and Maureen, when I was thirteen years old was probably the start of my adventure, going on to making my wedding ensemble and then through the years making fashions and accessories for myself and others.
So while I have an extensive background in my field, I am positively new to going on line. My friend Gloria introduced me recently to Etsy and suggested I give it a try. I’m eager to get started and I look forward to working with you and hope you will enjoy my creations.
Finally, a confession: I am a perfectionist and if I may say so, the quality of my work is high. I won’t let you down. I will give you great style, beautiful fabrics and very fair prices.

Fondly,
Christine
