Marylou was awesome in accommodating my slightly kooky request of a rasta themed stocking for my husband. The result is somehow both Christmas- and unique. Well done!

I absolutely love my new stocking! I was so excited to hang it up with the rest of our family's stockings this year! Thank you so much!

About

From life of the farm to my first published Christmas Stocking

I have been designing & hand knitting Christmas stockings the old fashioned way (with 2 knitting needles) for over 40 years now in my home in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Until 2007 I worked full time in the jewelry industry but was ready for a change.
In The fall of 2007 it was time to pursue my dream, and my e-Commerce business www.santasstockingworks.com went live making my Santa’s Stocking Works Christmas Stockings available to people outside of Oregon and around the world. I was immediately surprised by the response to my stockings and their popularity as I made sales world wide.
In fall of 2010 I was contacted by Jeni Hilpipre-Wright who is a writer who freelances for Better Homes and Gardens as well as several other National magazines. She was doing a Christmas article titled "Hung with Care" and asked if she could borrow some of my stockings for the photo shoot. After I shipped several from my Cherry Red and Lime Green series, she made her selection to use in the article. The stocking photo can be found on page 14 in the "2010 Christmas Ideas Magazine" from Better Homes and Gardens! I also was listed in the sources section of the magazine which allowed new potential customers to contact me. Shortly after the magazine hit store shelves, I was featured by a local newspaper on Thanksgiving weekend, in an article on the front page of their Business section. It again drew lots of attention gaining me sudden celebrity and with that, more new customers.
It is amazing what a website on the internet and an etsy shop can do for a small business!

    I grew up on a rural farm near Silver Creek Falls in Oregon. I learned how to knit when I was in elementary school. My mother is right handed,and I am left handed, so I learned by sitting across from her and mirroring her as she knitted.
