years, I worked as a Unix System Administrator
for various defense contractors; I loved my
job. I loved the challenges and the wonderful
people I'd met and had the privilege to
work with. I had 2 children, but yearned for
I could buy less expensive fabric, materials, and supplies.
After years of fertility treatments and heart
wrenching losses, we were blessed with the
birth of my third child and only daughter, Leah
Caroline; after she was born, I couldn't
bring myself to leave her every day, even to
return to the job I loved. My husband and I
made the decision that I would leave my job and
become a stay-at-home mom--I would have the
opportunity to indulge my 2 passions; my
children and sewing. We have since been blessed
with the birth of our fourth and last child, a
son, Michael (he just turned 3). Eldest sons

After shopping for a gift for the newborn baby
of a good friend, and finding that department
stores carried nothing but second best products
at first rate prices, I decided to start my own
business--using nothing but the finest
materials, and ensuring my customers have a top
quality, long lasting, beautiful heirloom gift
for that special baby, friend or family member.
And my customers probably would never know the
difference--but I would.
I only order my fleece from Malden Mills of
Massachusetts--the manufacturer of the finest
fleece milled in the U.S. I use the finest, strongest embroidery
thread available and the finest satin trim available. Each item
we ship is personally checked by me for quality and workmanship.
Every item we ship is custom made, one at a time. We don't use
a factory assembly line to create your order; that makes our unique
handmade gifts more expensive--but we're worth it.
We will create your
order as if it were our own. We want your business; our customers
expect excellence in our products and our service; so we strive for
our best. Every time. On every order.
Thanks, Mom, for teaching me how to sew.
Thanks, Dad, for teaching me to take pride in a
job well done.
And thanks to you for taking the time to visit
Gifts by Caroline!
I dedicate my work not only to my four beautiful
but also to the 5 little angel babies
I never got to hold.
