Saint Mark's Christmas Stockings

For over sixty years the needle artists of St. Mark’s have created beautiful Christmas stockings as a fund-raiser for special projects at the church. Work begins early in the year, with groups meeting to cut out the red corduroy and linings as well as the bells, snowmen, rocking horses, teddy bears, toys, horns and Christmas trees which are hand-appliquéd on each stocking. Then the beading and embellishing begins, using a wide variety of sequins, beads and costume jewelry.

Each stocking is unique; each artist adds her own personal touch. When orders are received, the name and year are added, making each stocking an heirloom to be treasured. Our beautiful stockings go to families all over the country. Some families are now ordering for the third generation. Quantities are limited, so order early.

If you want to know more about ordering a stocking please contact the church office (920) 885-3536 or write Saint Mark's Episcopal Church, 700 Mill Street, Beaver Dam, WI 53916.
