About Us

My name is Karla, I'm retired, proud mother of three, grandmother of three, wife, avid reader, seamstress/quilter, crafter, lover of coffee, red wine and sunshine!

I love to sew! Ever since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with cutting fabric and sewing it back together!

Creating something out of nothing more than a few scraps of fabric, crude drawings, and a sewing machine is one of my greatest pleasures.

Sewing was a family affair. My grandmother and aunts were all Home Economics teachers.  At age 8 I got my first sewing machine and immediately got busy designing and sewing outfits for my dolls. As I got older, I began to make my own clothes and eventually my kids when they were toddlers.

I opened an ETSY shop in 2010, selling handmade personalized baby gift items. A few years later I was introduced to quilting and my love affair with handmade home decor began!

My online shop giftsbykarla.com was born to share my passion for handmade home decor with other people. Each item is sewn, embroidered, and machine quilted by me. Most of our items are ready to ship. Custom orders are welcomed. Please contact me at quiltedgiftsbykarla@gmail.com to see if we can come up with something special for you!

I feel very blessed to have this opportunity, again, thanks for supporting my small business, you are greatly appreciated. ♥♥
