Needlepoint Christmas Stocking Kits: Everything You Need in One Package!
You can easily make needlepoint Christmas stockings... and personalize them, too!
Needlepoint Christmas stockings can make your holidays more warm and cozy. Make your own with a stocking needlepoint kit, and hang it on a fireplace mantel, with the fire blazing cheerily and a Christmas tree twinkling in the corner.
Make one for yourself or as a special gift for a child. A little boy or girl will treasure the stocking that Grandma made just for them, especially with their name on the stocking.

People love kits because everything is included. Needlepoint stocking kits are easy to work and everything you need is included. Most kits consist of canvas, thread, felt and a needle. Many of these stocking kits have lush velvet backings and a place for you to add a name at the top of the stocking - maybe a son or daughter, or a grandson or granddaughter.
Besides needlework stocking kits, there are gorgeous counted cross stitch stocking kits, ready to work and including everything you need.
Every member of your family can have their own Christmas stocking which will be extra-special because you made the stockings just for them. Even your family pet can have their own Christmas stocking.
There are a variety of stocking kit designs:
- Holy Family
- Village Sleigh Ride
- Polar Bears
Fill your needlepoint Christmas stockings with candy, small toys and special Christmas gifts for the special people and pets in your life. And don't hang your beautiful handmade Christmas stockings with tape or a nail. Hang them from Christmas stocking holders that are available in many styles from cute to elegant. You can find stocking holders for the mantel in online stores or in your local Target and such.

She shows you everything that comes in these kits and also gives you helpful tips!
Needlepoint works faster than cross-stitch because you're only using the Continental Stitch and usually in just one direction.
She shows you exactly what is in this kit. It comes with a painted canvas that you match up with a chart to use as a guide to see what colors go where. This stocking is done with floss and wool. (A lot of kits will use just wool.) Everything is sorted for you on cards.
She doesn't use a hoop, but merely holds small sections very taut, and she explains why.
