Early visitors to the stand at Heart and Soul were a group of first aiders on duty at the event. No emergency but we were pleased to tell them about Holy Socks. Thanks to the Herald photographer who took the pic with my phone.
The New “Mountains” design will be available later in the month, you can just see the bright version being modelled on the foot of Holy Socks rally driver, Jock Armstrong. The verse will be “How beautiful o the mountains are the feet of them who bring good news.”
Our latest design is ready to fly off from Holy Socks HQ.
In two colours and sizes 6-11 and 4-7, our Fearless Sparrows discuss the verse from Matthew 10,3: “Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Find them here.
Holy Socks visited the Parish Church Guild meeting at the beginning of November.
Everyone seemed to enjoy hearing about how Holy Socks began and have continued for nearly 20 years - so much so that we forgot to take any photos. Ooops!
Pity because it was a lovely hall and a selection of scrummy cakes too. Thanks so much for your warmwelcome and hope everyone enjoys their Holy Socks. I shall be thinking of you all on Christmas morning.
Special thanks to Rev. Iain and Marjory Paton for the overnight accommodation.
and The Lamp - a thicker style sock made for serious walking. Click here for more details.
We have quite a few designs which feature sheep so we thought we'd just visit Masham Sheep Fair in North Yorkshire. We'd been at the Cathedral and Church Shops Association exhibition in Sheffield and it was on the way back home so we took our gazebo and socks and went along. We set up on Friday evening and were all ready for Saturday morning. The Girl Guides had a different sort of sheep race and there was geese herding in the ring.Read More
in spring 2010, we took a stand to Iona.
The Iona Communities shop had sold Holy Socks for some years before they asked for a display stand in 2010. We were happy to oblige and take both Holy Socks and a stand all the way from South West Scotland to the Island of Iona.
Saturday was the United Reformed Church's Big Day at Southport.
