Our Story

When I first started The Creative Hobbyist threads it was known as Chi Fashionista.  

Chi Fashionista started in 2009 as a doggie clothing line. My chihuahuas were my babies so I made cute clothes for them to wear and keep them warm in the winter months. Once I became a mommy to a human baby I expanded into baby accessories. My chihuahuas are old and grumpy now and not into playing dress up.

Chi Fashionista's baby accessories started out as more of a necessity than an idea to make an sell them. I needed items to meet certain needs. I would go to the store and couldn't find what I was looking for or the items in the store weren't cute and didn't meet my standards. I knew that if I needed these things some other mama did too and so Chi Fashionista was reinvented with babies in mind.

Customer Service is a top priority! I strive to make and ship items in a timely manner. The Creative Hobbyist Threads makes items that are of the best quality at affordable prices. All items have been tested an approved by me and my littles before making it to the shop. So you can be assured they are mom approved. I welcome and encourage custom orders! I love designing something just for you.

As my children grew from babies I discovered that I had a love of clothing and unique t-shirts and thus my business has grown with my interests. While I still love to make and sew baby accessories I find myself drawn to new clothing styles and unique items that are typically not found in stores.  I enjoy making custom clothes to suit your unique style and needs. My absolute favorite is when a customer contacts me with a design idea and I get to bring that idea to life.

In 2019 I launched The Creative Hobbyist, LLC  and I wanted my shop to be part of The Creative Hobbyist because so many of the shop's items go right along with the services I offer as The Creative Hobbyist therefore The Creative Hobbyist Threads was born.  I strive to bring creative products to all my customers and offer services that bring creativity to customers who may not have creative talents.
