About Grandmas’ Stocking Guild

Grandmas’ Stocking Guild is forever changing lives!

​Grandmas’ Stocking Guild was formed in 2009 in response to the need to ‘do something’ to help abused and neglected children in the Texas Hill country. 

We began by furnishing 60 stockings to New Life in Canyon Lake, a residential home for girls aged 12-17. In December 2014, we became a 501(c)(3) organization. We now give out more and more stockings each year. 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.

A parent recently remarked:
“My goodness! I literally almost cried. These stockings are beyond beautiful and just so precious! We will hold on to them forever. THANK YOU! The boys absolutely loved them and are so thankful!”

Each stocking has a label on the back saying “Made with Love by Grandma”, a cross on the front, and most important, each child’s name will appear on the cuff. It is theirs forever!

We are based in Central Texas: in New Braunfels, Seguin, San Marcos, Boerne, Wimberley and Schertz. 

We welcome people who like to sew to help us. Come to one of our workshops and pick up a kit to take home or stay and work with us there.

Come help us change a child’s life . . .
