Over the past few years my family and I have switched from having a bunch of presents under the Christmas tree to having a stocking each. This helps us put a limit on what we buy each other (size wise and monetarily) and makes it a fun challenge to find just the right gifts.
A few years ago I found time to quilt my husband and I stockings. I love pulling these crazy quilted beauties out each year and adding goodies to them.
As someone who is very indecisive, I'm a fan of slowly filling up stockings over the months leading up to the holidays. This puts less pressure on finding gifts and helps me find time to get just the right things.
If you're looking for stocking stuffer gifts ideas for a stitcher, embroiderer, needleworker, or something of the sort, then this list is for you! You're sure to find something special that they'll love and use regularly.
