Warmth for Warriors organization is again requesting for crafters to help crochet, knit, or sew mini handmade Christmas stockings for the troops. Stockings should be around 6 inches long and any pattern style or color is accepted. Stockings that are a little smaller or larger are okay too.

The miniature stockings will be filled at W4W Headquarters with soaps, toiletries, and candies for overseas to our troops as a little Christmas gifts. The little stockings filled with goodies are a wonderful way to say thank you to our troops and give them a little Christmas cheer during the holidays. We also need donations of the little motel sized soaps, shampoos, chapsticks and other small items for stuffing the stockings.

Shipping address for all USPS packages to:

Warmth for Warriors
PO Box 353
Rudyard, MI 49780

Deadline for shipping stockings to Warmth for Warriors and delivery to them is November 1, 2019.

Total number of stockings received in 2018 was 3,648!

Here are 4 more mini stockings I finished up this weekend. I added a scalloped edging to the BLO pattern. It's fun to mix it up and add a different look while using the same basic crochet pattern.

Here is another group of stockings I crocheted using a big skein of Herrschners Holiday Sparkle in Colorway Victorian Christmas. I add some scalloped edging trim and the loopy trim on the bottom one.
