About

One Fateful Day in 1990

I am a teacher by day (only from Aug. to May of course) and in my off time I love to sew and create. Everything is made by me in what is my formal living room which has been turned into my sewing room.

How it all started:

My name is Ellen so you may be wondering why on earth have I named my shop "Created by Carol". Carol was my mother. Unfortunately she passed away very unexpectedly in March 2007. My mom was a professional quilter. She could sew pretty much anything - quilts, fancy dresses, clothes, curtains, etc. While I was growing up, she was always sewing and creating something. I would think to myself as I watched her, ‘how can she possibly do that all day long--–how boring!’ She owned a local quilt shop (The Quilt Cottage) in New Orleans for 28 years and as I grew older it eventually became one of my most favorite places to go until it closed after her death. When my oldest son was an infant in 1990, I was a stay at home mom. One day mom arrived at my house with a sewing machine and some fabric she had pre-cut to make a quilt. I had absolutely no interest in learning to sew and had no idea she was bringing these things over. After she arrived she told me emphatically, “You are going to learn how to sew!" I really didn’t want to learn, but how could I possibly say no to her after she had gone to all that trouble. Well…that was it! I was hooked. I think I stayed up half the night finishing that first quilt top. I couldn’t learn everything fast enough and soon could put together an entire quilt from beginning to end. As you can imagine, my sweet mom was thrilled at what she had done. Around 2001, I started making bibs and burp cloths and over the years I have added more and more items to my sewing repetoire and now I rarely make quilts anymore (but still remember how). I owe it all to my mom and her insistence that I learn to sew. If she would not have brought over that sewing machine and pre-cut quilt, I have no doubt that I would never have done it on my own. The name of my business is Created by Carol to honor my awesome mom because without her I would never have learned to sew and would not be creating anything. She truly did 'create' my business. Thanks mom!
