She Sews Stockings!

One of our loyal crafters has already started sewing stockings for Project 5.  They are adorable!  We can't wait to see the rest of them.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Don't sew?  Don't worry!  You can embellish purchased ones with all kinds of things.  Glitter glue, ribbons, small ornaments, etc.  Use your imagination.  View some of our links for ideas.  Have fun with it!

"The stockings were hung by the chimney with care" ~~ Project 5

"In the hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there."  Or, so how the rhyme goes.  But not everyone will have a stocking to hang this Christmas.

We at Craft 4 Change would like to change that, by teaming up once again with St. John's Shelter for Women and Children.  Our first project ("Wrap Them in Love") was so well received that they contacted us and asked if we would be willing to help again.  This time by providing Christmas Stockings.  Of course, we said. "YES!"

So, get out those sewing machines, knitting needles, crochet hooks or glue guns!  This is easy! There are so many need to sew anything if you don't want to. Purchase inexpensive ones and embellish them.  Glue or sew on all kinds of things.  Recycle old ones you no longer want by adding some "love" to them.

Use your imagination or look at these cute ideas here. Or, here.

Let us know when you are finished and we'll let you know where to send or drop them off.  No need to fill them...just make them!

Deadline is December 1st. Completed.

Hello crafters! 

Hard to believe that September is here and you know what that means?  Christmas is just around the corner!  (a hint at our next project). 

Take time to enjoy your family and friends over this long holiday weekend and be ready to start "laboring" again on Tuesday!
