Stocking for Kids: Sponsors and Prizes!!

The Stocking for Kids charity drive is off to a great start. A giant thank you to all who have submitted stockings, told their friends and written blog posts about this service opportunity.

In case you needed another reason to make a stocking (besides the warm and fuzzy feeling you get knowing you helped bring cheer to a child's face), I am excited to finally announce the sponsors of this project and the following prizes.




$50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.

The Fat Quarter Shop is one of my favorite places to buy fabric online - they have such a great collection of fabric and quilt kits. I highly recommend their bloggers choice series where different bloggers put together a fat quarter bundle of their favorite fabrics for you to purchase (so fun!). And the best part is you don't have to wait weeks for your newly purchased fabrics to arrive at your doorstep with their same day shipping policy.




Sweetwater fabrics have so generously donated a countdown to christmas charm pack.

This is sure to be a perfect addition to your holiday sewing. They produce such fun fabric - I love the way they incorporate typography into their designs.



One of my favorite quilting bloggers, Jacquie, who blogs at Tallgrass Prairie Studio has generously put together a fat quarter pack featuring 2 prints from Kate Spain's 12 days of Christmas line and 2 colors from the peas and carrots line.




Brenda at Pink Castle Fabrics has donated a "mystery" red and green fabric bundle. Her Etsy shop is full of beautiful fabrics - including to die for fabric bundles - and she is such a joy to work with.


To be entered to win one of these prizes you will need to donate a stocking - one entry per stocking you donate - and check back for the linky party which will be hosted here to enter on December 1. There also may or may not be a few surprise giveaways as well so keep checking back for more information!

Not that I needed a reason to participate, but these are wonderful prizes! :)

What generous prizes (not that they are necessary, but they don't hurt). I purchased my stocking fabric last night, so hopefully I'll have at least one made this weekend. Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful event!

I am in, just let me know if you want a name on it or just a place for a name. I love the stockings best about Christmas. I never had one filled for me when I was a kid, but my girls and son have had one every year. I will email you.

What a great cause! I will be surprised if you don't get lots more than 50 stockings. I just may give this a try!

Thanks for the great patterns. I might see if there is someone in Australia who is doing this and contribute any stockings I make to them.
Cheers,

The stocking idea is so neat. I just read about it and hope I'm not too late to make one.
