Stocking Cuffs

I have stitched 16 hand-painted needlepoint stockings in my 30+ years of stitching. Currently, I am working on the Rockerfeller Center Christmas stocking -- stocking number 17!

But if you already have two + children or grandchildren (with others to come), it can seem like an overwhelming prospect to start stitching stockings for everyones. A great solution is stocking cuffs. You just stitch the top part and the main part of the stocking is created from fabric. At the TNNA show, Needlepoint Broad, Elizabeth Turner, Associated Talents and Beau Geste all had great stocking cuffs.

Below is the picture of a customer's grandson with his stocking and its needlepointed cuff.

There's loads of time before next Christmas to finish several if you need to!
