Want to stitch a stocking in 2024?: Here are our best tips!
January is the best time of year to get started on a new stocking! This time of year, we see many stitchers decide to dive in! They’ve been inspired by the recent holidays and can’t wait to stitch their own heirloom over the coming year.
When taking on a project this big, it can be tough to know where to start! Today we are sharing our top tips for working on stockings.

1. Chip away at your background as you go.
When stitching a stocking, it's tempting to want to start with all the fun details! But with a project this big, we highly recommend chipping away at the background as you go! There is nothing worse than getting to the end of a large project and feeling completely overwhelmed by the amount of background left to be stitched. If you work on it as you go, this is less likely to happen!

2. Let us personalize it for you with a name!
We love to make sure every detail of your project is perfect. Let us help you add a name to the top of your stocking! Whether you are looking for script, block lettering or something more specific, we have a team of incredible painters and artists on staff who can help make your vision come true. When you check out, simply add a note to your order and someone will be in touch with you to work out the details and pricing. When you receive your stocking, it's so nice to already have all these things taken care of so you can just stitch! Let us bring your vision to life today!

3. Use a variety of fun fibers!
We love to help pull fibers for stockings! We always recommend working with a selection of fun threads. Not only will this add dimension and texture to your stitching, but it will also help break up the project and add interest as you work. Stitch Santa’s coat in velvet, reindeer in wool, a cozy fire in sparkly threads and bead the stars in your night sky. We have lots of wonderful ideas and all the threads you could need to bring those ideas to life! 
So what are you waiting for? Dive right in and pick out your stocking today! Make 2024 the year you make your stitching goals happen. We’re here to help you!
