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! :-)
You’ll receive detailed and fully illustrated written instructions that can be viewed on your favorite device or printed out for convenience.

As always, Sarah’s effort is incredible. EVERYTHING is in your library: directions, designs, PDFs, and the best videos for all aspects of the quilt. And if that isn’t enough, she does tons of zooms for questions, clarification and of course, meeting all who are working on it along with you. It is always available for you too. Don’t forget, Sarah is one of the original techie designers, way ahead of online learning and videos and in-depth lessons. Go for it!
Sarah's designs are value in the extreme. The instructions are detailed, step-by-step, and include full color pictures. But Wait! There’s more! How about videos that actually show her making the project step-by-step! But Wait! There’s more! She offers weekly Zoom meetings where you can hear what other hesitant sewers are facing. Right there, Sarah calms fears and leads the sewer to success. But Wait! There’s more! E-mail assistance at your fingertips!I have never come across another designer that gives up so much of herself to help others be successful. I know when I sit down in front of my embroidery machine that I will stitch out my project perfectly…because of the support I get. I’m calm, serene, and confident.
Her designs are so beautifully finished and complete. The quilting is gorgeous, all done in the hoop. There is a polish to her designs you don’t see from other designers out there. Her instructions are very thorough and complete. Offering written and video instruction. Good for the visual learner and those who like to read directions. Also offered is access to her online community where questions can be answered by Sarah and other community members. Making one of Sarah’s quilts is very rewarding. It’s as if you’ve joined a world-wide sewing group who all love embroidery and quilting. She has a way of making an apprehensive quilter feel confident while completing the quilt.
I'm a total newbie to machine embroidery, but with Sarah's guidance and instructions, I'm able to do this and enjoy the process. There are many experienced people in this group who are most generous and informative.
The Christmas Stocking Project
Consider this your official invitation!
Join us and quilters all over the world as we come together to make a difference this Christmas. The Christmas Stocking Project is how you can be involved! Use your love of machine embroidery to remind someone they matter and they are loved.
Stitch up these stockings with us and then ship them to our collection location. They'll be filled and donated to foster care in Arizona to give as many kids as possible a Christmas Stocking to hold their hopes and dreams. 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 calling them Dream Catcher Stockings - a place for them to put their dreams all year long, not just at Christmas.
We are also hosting The Christmas Stocking Project Zoom Sew Along! Two calls, Saturday October 22nd and Sunday November 20th, where you can jump on Zoom and stitch with everyone. It's going to be so much fun! Someone also mentioned there might be some fabric to win! :-)
Stockings are due to us by December 1st, so there's plenty of time to stitch up a difference this Christmas even if you have a full schedule.
