Grandmas’ Stocking Guild is forever changing lives!
We make Christmas stockings for children whose lives are in turmoil – children who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected.
The children are THRILLED with their stockings. One little girl slept with hers every night. The girls at New Life Children's Center hang theirs on their doors – until long after Christmas.
Each stocking has a label on the back saying “Made with Love by Grandma”, a cross on the front, and most important, the name of the child is embroidered on the cuff. It is theirs forever!
We are based in central Texas: in New Braunfels, Seguin, San Marcos, Wimberley and Schertz.
We welcome people who like to sew to help us. Come to one of our workdays and pick up a kit to take home, or stay and work with us there.
We would be most happy to share what we have learned with anyone who would like to start a similar project. You can reach us on our contact page.
Come help us change a child’s life . . .
