Buy The NEW Christmas Stocking Collection!

What if you could send more love out in the world with every stitch of your embroidery machine?

How would it feel to not only invest in yourself and your mental health as you carve out intentional sewing time, but to create something and share it with someone who desperately needs it?

The NEW Christmas Stocking Collection opens the doors to so much more than just creating something beautiful. It's an opportunity to contribute something to the greater good of the world as you participate in the magic of creating. It's healing, beauty, inspiration, and infinite joy.

Stitching up beautiful projects for the holidays is one of the many joys of owning an embroidery machine. Can you imagine creating a set of custom, personalized stockings for your family this Christmas?

Or how about a gorgeous, interactive, and luxuriously quilted Advent Calendar for those sweet little hands to explore?

The NEW Christmas Stocking Collection allows you to use your imagination and let it run wild as you discover different color combinations, audition fabric and thread, and end up with amazing finished projects that will bless both you and the recipient! 

You can create the quilt with gorgeous stocking blocks or make up the standalone stockings for beautiful Christmas décor. But why stop there? There's plenty of time to do both! And while you're stitching up something special for yourself or a loved one, set aside a little time and materials to make an extra stocking for The Christmas Stocking Project.

This collection is packed full of options and possibilities - just how you like it! Included in your purchase are:

  • 5 different stocking designs
  • 6" x 9" stocking blocks with 6" x 4.5" envelopes - both open to hold treasures and notes!
  • 8" x 12" stocking blocks with 8" x 6" envelopes - both open to hold treasures and notes! 
  • Standalone stockings measuring approximately 5.25" x 7.5" and 7"x 10"
  • The option to make a wall hanging, quilt, etc. any size you'd like just by changing the number of blocks you use!
  • An invitation to join us for The Christmas Stocking Project, an amazing opportunity to change lives and have fun while you're at it! Two live group sewing sessions and giveaways included :-)

We stitched up a wintery blue and white Advent Quilt, a fun pink, blue, and green quilt, and a traditional Christmas color wall hanging. 

To inspire you to get started with your own layout, here's a few options to get those ideas flowing:

(24) 6" x 9" stocking blocks with (24) envelopes make a 36" x 54" quilt

(24) 6" x 9" stocking blocks with (4) envelopes make a 24" x 58.5" quilt

(24) 8" x 12" stocking blocks with (24) envelopes make a 48" x 72" quilt

(24) 8" x 12" stocking blocks with (4) envelopes make a 32" x 78" quilt

Experiment and have fun - make one or make many! The choice is yours.

Each block is quilted in the hoop before the stocking is applied, giving you a beautiful finish no matter which way you look at it! 

The included videos will show you step-by-step how to stitch and assemble a stocking block, how to stitch and assemble an envelope block, and how to make a standalone stocking. It will be just like joining me for a live class - only better! Because you will have unlimited access to the videos to watch them again and again, rewind, or fast forward. You can watch in your pajamas as you enjoy your morning coffee - no one will know! :-)

The Christmas Stocking Project

Consider this your official invitation!

Imagine a child waking up on Christmas morning, away from everything they've ever known with a very unsure future. Empty handed and heavy-hearted, they wonder not only is there anyone out there in the world who might love me, but am I even loveable in the first place?

Now imagine that same child in a different space, one where they have been given the gift of a Dream Catcher Stocking. Instead of wondering in silence on Christmas and all the days after, they can look down in their hands at a very special handmade Christmas stocking. One that you made. A tangible reminder that not only they are loveable, but someone in this world actually loves them. A place to store their hopes and dreams and a reminder that yes, it's still okay to have them. That your circumstances don't define you or your future, and there's more waiting for you. 

This Christmas, Meaning of Life Designs is partnering with ASA Now to provide at least 700 Dream Catcher Stockings - for children who are already in the foster system in Arizona and those who will enter the system in December. We're barely scratching the surface - there are thousands of children in the foster care system in Arizona alone - but it's a small step in the right direction.

Here's how you can participate in the Christmas Stocking Project. 

Join us and quilters all over the world as we come together to make a difference this Christmas. Use your love of machine embroidery to remind someone they matter and they are loved.

  • Purchase The NEW Christmas Stocking Collection.
  • Make an advent quilt or some stand alone stockings for the children in your life.
  • Then make a couple of extra stand alone stockings for the Christmas Stocking Project. Remember ... they can be completed 100% in the hoop! And ... this is a great stash buster project!
  • Write a little love note to put into each stocking that you have made, letting the child that receives it know who you are, and that you are sending love to them.
  • Send your contributions to our collection location to arrive before December 1, 2022. You'll find the address in the portal after your purchase.
  • We will fill the stockings and take them to ASA Now, ready to be given to the children attending their Christmas party on December 4, 2022. All children who are brought to ASA Now after the Christmas party up to and including Christmas Day will also receive a stocking.

We are calling these stockings Dream Catcher Stockings because they are a place for the children to put their dreams all year long, not just at Christmas. They are a tangible item they can look at and remember that someone in this big wide world loves them and is rooting for their success.

We are also hosting 2 Christmas Stocking Project Stitch Alongs! Join us on zoom:

  • Saturday October 22nd, between 10am and 4pm Pacific time
  • Sunday November 20th, between noon and 4pm.

Stitch and chat and generally have fun while you are creating something magical that will bring a light into the life of a child this Christmas. Someone also mentioned there might be some fabric to win! :-)

With stockings due to us by December 1st, there's plenty of time to stitch up a difference this Christmas even if you have a full schedule.
