Nowis a good time toget started on yourstockings for next Christmas or for gifts throughout the year.
This is an original and not a reproduction for 2012. It has all original colors, felt and floss. It is washable, unlike reproductions.
"Santa Paws" isthe perfect stocking for anydog lover.It is very colorful but a lot of detail. This discontinued stocking kit isa brand new,factory-sealed kitshipped directly from Plaid/Bucilla. When finished it is 18" in length.This is one of theheavier kits and on some of thelarger kits they have a tendency topull open. If I see this may happen when mailing your kit, I will tape it to keep everything perfect in the kit during the shipping process. If you prefer that I not tape the bottom of your kit, please let me know before I ship it.
This stocking is 18 inches in length when completed and was designed by Maria Stanzani. Thiskit contains stampedfelts, cotton floss, color separated sequins and beads, 2 needles, tri-lingual instructions and directions for personalization. Everything you need to complete the stocking are in the kit except for the polyester filling or the filling of your choice.
This kit was shipped directly fromthe manufacturerto me.It has not been on the secondary market so I can honestly say it comes from a clean, smoke-free, pet-free Environment.It was discontinued during its prime and is valued atapproximately $150.00 inany stores that are lucky enough to have one, especiallyin uncirculated condition.
This is an original Santa Paws stocking kit and not the cheaper reproduction from 2012 that has the thinner felt and the the lower quality of sequins that flake off. I do not handle the reproductions because the quality is not even close to that of the original. I understand that this price seems high when you see the same kit for $40.00 but those are the 2012 reproductions and not originals. Before the reproductions were introduced, I was the only seller with the originals on . I am not saying that all of the Santa Paws are reproductions,but beware the kits of the same designs of any stocking that seems much higher.
This stocking kit was outlined in a brown instead of black. The brown tends to bleed in the lines but when completed if the sequins or surrounding pieces still show a small goldish brown line, you may dab it off with water by placing a towel on the underside. Move the towel each time you dab until the spot is removed. You can also do what I did when I made mine and that is take your needle and lightly scratch off the color. This is the heavy felt by Bucilla and not the light weight felt by Plaid so it does not cause a problem because I have done it.This was Bucilla's way of lightening the line that you cut on or bead over from leaving black on the kit.
The original kits are washable but the reproductions felt colors tend to bleed. There are washing instructions in the kit if you need to wash it.
If you are not comfortable with doing this, please do not purchase this item because it is on ever kit Bucilla produced.
The felts are much thinner in the new kits and on some occasions you may want to back them because they can tear with wear. I certainly undertand that this is a lot of money for a kit but it was not an outsourced kit and is of high quality materials. I do not handle the reproductions of any design because it is my goal to sell only the best kits. Take precautions when making the reproductions because some of the sequins flake out and may have to be replaced. Since the kit has been discontinued, I am not sure if Plaid can replace the components if there is a problem.
I am also limiting my inventory on the new kits for this same reason but if you want one of the new kits, I will certainly order it for you. If you place an order for other kits and don't want to wait for me to get a new kit for you, I will ship your order without it and send the other kit free when it gets in.
Please do not offer/buy on any of items unless you are certain to pay. All non paying buyers will be blocked permanently from all my items in the future.

- I wrap all of my kits in white tissue and label them so that there is no chance of the kit opening during transit and losing a bead or sequin. It preserves the cleanliness of the kit as well. All of my kits are from a clean, smoke-free, pet-free Environment except for the vintage kits. I do take extra precaution on all vintage kits or opened to maintain they are germ-free.
- Since vintage kits go through so many hands, it is for this reason that my kits cost a little more because they are completely sterilized using the procedure that is used in a surgical procedure. I don't just wipe down the outside of a package with a germicide. I sterilize completely throughout the kit.
- There is a grommet hole, a hole which is used for displaying the kit, ornament, etc., germs and bacteria can go through the grommet hole on any kit. It is worth it to make sure your kit is germ-free. I will never sell you an incomplete or dirty kit. If I receive a kit that has a torn, dirty or in an extremely worn plastic package, I will replace it with a new bag and professionally heat seal it.
Canadian Buyers, your shipping costshave increased due to Canadian increases. Tree skirts and Home Decor such as wall hangings and Advent calendars vary depending on weight.Due to some long customs delays, you may have a longer wait than direct mail in your area. Please remember that I have no control over these delays, but I do mail your kit within 24 hours except on weekends or holidays. Please do not ask me to alter any customs forms, since this is illegal. I cannot mark as "gift" or submit a lower value since the forms are printed directly from the invoice.
Please visit my store, "Christmas is in the Heir" for the rare, hard-to-find or BIN kits. If you are looking for a particular Bucilla stocking kit, please let me know.
