This design is availabe as a fully stitched needepoint belt, or as a DIY needlepoint kit.  And it can be customized!  Add a monogram, yacht club burgee, and change the background color to navy if you don’t like the light blue!

The Needlepoint Stockings were Hung by the Chimney with Care

The Christmas season is long anticipated all year by adults and children alike for the celebratory feeling that is nearly magical. Friends and families around the world gather to celebrate and enjoy the festivities of the season. With so much going on at Christmas time, it can take a long time to find something new and special each year to commemorate the day. Our custom needlepoint Christmas stockings are perfect for any Christmas lover.

Hanging a stocking is a long standing tradition dating back to a legend from the days of Saint Nicholas. It was said that he left gold in the stockings of people in his town on Christmas Eve. While you’d have to be really good all year to get gold in your stocking from Santa, the decoration is still a favorite of families around the world.
