Here at The Glam Pad, we love needlepoint, and we love tradition! And this year, we are honored to partner with Bauble Stockings to share two beautiful new needlepoint stockings designed by Holly Hollon of Dogwood Hill, now launching exclusively via The Glam Pad.
Kate Stewart founded Bauble Stockings in 2018 based on a cherished family tradition. When Kate was young, her mom would receive the very last gift of Christmas, hidden in a needlepoint stocking hung on the tree. Kate’s dad called it a “Bauble Stocking,” because once in a while, it would contain a special bauble: a piece of jewelry in appreciation for everything her mother did for the family.
Kate has since turned this tradition of gifting into a tradition that gives back. Each Bauble Stocking is completely hand stitched in Haiti through the company’s partnership with Good Threads Needlepoint (a certified B-Corp), providing over 100 women with full-time work that helps fund their children’s education and meals. And five percent of the profit from each sale benefits the Atlanta Children’s Shelter, a day shelter for homeless children.
Over the past few years, we have made Bauble Stockings part of our own family traditions and have loved watching our friends do the same. Ideas are endless: feature them in tablescapes; give them as party favors; perhaps one could even make a proposal or a clever baby reveal!
The stockings are heirloom-quality and make beautiful gifts to pass down through generations, while also being purposeful in so many lives. “We’re honored to partner with The Glam Pad to not only introduce new families to the tradition that is Bauble Stockings, but also provide job opportunities and food for as many Haitian women and their children as we can,” Kate tells us.
We are thrilled and equally honored to launch this delightful collaboration of three designs by the talented Holly Hollon of Dogwood Hill and Bauble Stockings: Nutcracker Patissiere, Rose Medallion Tree, and a reprise of previous favorite Holiday Trimmings. Shop them first here at The Glam Pad—that is, while they’re still hanging around!
