Long ago my Great Grandmother created hand made holiday stockings for the entire family. Her Children & their spouses, grand children and great grand children. She also taught many of us to knit, crochet, sew, embroidery, and quilting, including  me at a young age. I have never forgotten those stockings made from her fabric scraps, buttons, trims and embellishments gathered during her life, each embroidered with our names.
Here I offer you my rendition of exquisite surprises, Christmas Stockings made from antique textiles, trims, beads and other embellishments.  Inspired by Great Grandma.
All stockings are cotton lined and flannel inter lined to provide for years of use and ease of stocking stuffing.

Stockings are available individually.
