Today is the first day of our 12 day countdown to Christmas…whether you are shopping for yourself or for friends these will make great birthday gifts/ hostess gifts/ retreat gifts all at great prices!!!
If you order right away each day you may possibly get your package before Christmas, if that is not a concern to you…I know some of you wait until the end and place your order then…but be aware that some things will not be available and are special purchases for us…like these socks……I am sure Moda will get them back in stock but it will be months/(if ever) before we may have them again…just to let you know.
When I saw these socks in my Moda bucket at market, I was super excited and immediately though all quilters need/will love these!
Mono-cromatic colored socks with patchwork and a great statement for getting those quilts done!!! With the motto: Pedal to the metal-could they be any more perfect for those days spent sewing!!! lol…My heart was saying have-to-have…score!!! those are mine!!! and also…the perfect gift for that quilter friend who has everything or the one that you don’t want to make anything for because their stuff is alway so perfect!!!
We have a bunch of these in stock but I know they are limited so we won’t be able to order them forever…..if you HAVE to be styling while stitching….here’s your newest accessory!!! Wear them well my friends…
The Moda socks are reg. $14.99 a pair…but for our Needful Things they are specially priced at $12.99 a pair or if you buy the set of two they are only $24 for both.

Are you talking “fun” socks, “seasonal” socks, athletic socks, work socks, hiking socks…I could go on and on! I’d love to add these to my sock drawers : ) Thanks for the chance to win!
Merry Christmas, it is a time of Miracles from our Lord. May everyone be blessed with good health, peace and happiness and a lightness in the heart that can only be felt when the Lord is working in you!
Socks…maybe 5 pair. I wear them when the snow gets high enough to cover my sandals!
Socks – about 3 dozen, some hand knit.
Oh…I have LOTS of SOCKS…mixed in with my husbands, behind the dryer, or hiding in a jeans leg!
HAHA you said pairs right….because i have so many singles. maybe 10-15 complete sets….some have holes some are torn etc. lol
I must have over 40 pairs of socks but these are adorable!
How clever! Everyone needs socks! And super cute to boot! I probably have 25 pairs of socks. Some short, some long, some thick, some thin……the possibilities are endless..
I have a drawer full of socks, but tend to wear the same 3 or 4 sets . These are so cute. Thanks for sharing
I must own 50 pair of socks and I cleaned the drawer out this fall. I may have a hoarding issue on socks. should I go seek some counseling. Ha ha ha. Peace and joy
I have about 12 pairs for me. Doing laundry every week for the 5 people who live in my house, I feel like they take on a life of their own. My children do not have the ability to get them in the wash. I am glad they have taken to the 2 mismatched socks. Life is much easier.
I don’t have any sewing socks but I do have about 20 pairs including hand knitted I have made. Would love to have this. Paula in KY
I’d say I have at least 20 pairs of socks. My favorite thing to wear during winter months.
I’ve been eyeing these socks! They are so cute! I have probably 30 pairs of socks. 9 pairs that I made, which is a fun hing to do when I take an evening break from handwork. What fun way to start the Needful Things!
Finishing up 4 Christmas gifts hopefully. I am making one for myself and the other 3 are for my daughters. My project is one and one half inch squares that piece together to form an old red pickup truck with 3 Christmas trees in the bed. Binding and adding sleeve to back so it can be a table runner or a wall hanging. So cute!
What a blessed group of ladies to live close enough to be able to come stitch and hang out with you Lisa. Love the socks!! I have a pretty good collection of smart wool and darn tough wool socks for winter but kind of slim pickings on my other socks. I probably only have around 25 pair of socks in my sock drawer.
I probably have around 25 pairs of socks, regular and workout. I love the Moda pairs! Thanks for the chance to win.
I don’t own a lot of socks maybe 2 dozen. Boring ones too. These would jazz things up
Let see how many socks…running socks bakers dozen & most likely 45-50 other socks🤶🎄☃️
I think I have about 20 pairs but none are as cute as those. Have a great holiday!
I used to own a drawer full of fun socks….not any longer. I have maybe 3 pairs of those stupid shoe liners when I have to wear sneakers. Or when I go home to Michigan in the winter, I buy a pkg of white crew socks and a couple of pairs of Christmas socks (on sale) from Joann.
My wish is….peace. My silly wish for me is a sewing room that magically organizes itself every night or 3x a day. Maybe a “Samantha” do-dad that twitches and voila!
Not really sure…but my sock drawer won’t shut anymore! I think I need to purge out all my old socks from high school. I graduated in ’65
I have a drawer full of socks (no idea of the number) but nothing as cute as these!
My favorite socks are my hand knits. I probably have a dozen pairs. The fuzzy slipper socks are pretty great too, however I can only find one of those at this time!
The sock drawer is too full to count! I love these socks! They are so cute! Thanks for the giveaway. Merry Christmas!
Oh heavens, how many socks?
Should I include the orphans whose companion has run away somewhere? Without those orph’s I’d say a good 30 pairs.
I have my socks nicely sorted in one of those shoe hangers (for the most part) by color because I kept going to work with one black and one navy sock.
I have approximately 30 pair of socks. Sewing in these socks would be “sew much fun”. Merry Christmas!
I have 45 pairs of socks, but not too many to enjoy a new pair now!
52 pairs but only wear maybe 4 of the pairs but none of them are as cute as these!
Lol. I probably have hundreds. Special occasions plus the two pairs I wear everyday to keep warm. I love the happy socks such as these moda. It’s like having a secret in your boots
Gosh, until I read some of the replies, I thought I had a bunch of socks, but I would guesstimate that I have 17 pair. Apparently I could really use another pair or two, lol.
Probably at least 75. Thought about joining Woven Pear club but then I would be really out of drawer space
I have been editing my cloths and such so I should know these. I want to say 25? Lol
Love, love the socks, I maybe have only 75 pairs counting summer and winter. But that is just an estimate. Enjoy your blog and all your designs. Merry Christmas to you and your precious family…
Merry Christmas! I have maybe 12 pairs of socks. If I could have one gift for Christmas it would be peace, kindness and true love for others. Our world is in such a mess. I love to sew during this time making one of a kind gifts for friends and family.

I own about 20 pairs of socks. Ten are ankle no shows for warmer temps and ten are winter wool socks. Some I have knitted and some are graphic . Think sock monkeys and lots of sheep.
I don’t have a number, but every year for the last 15 or so I give my daughter socks for her birthday, which is around Halloween. It’s an expected thing now and when she opens her package her two little girls are as excited as she is about the socks and seem to think the socks are for them even though they are way too big. I love socks.
Embarrassed to say I have 2 drawers full – just counted, 59 which includes no show socks
I have 15 pairs of Christmas socks alone. I would wear a different pair every day for my first graders to try to guess what they looked like. Many many other pairs, I wear them all the time in the house instead of slippers. Was gifted 2 pairs of Quilting socks many years ago. Best present that year.
Love the socks! Moved from Florida to Boston, I need more warm socks!! Only have about 5 pairs, need more! Thanks for sharing these, they are great!
About 20 pair of socks.
I don’t have as many as I should…maybe 40? They are so fun!
Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
I have 15 pairs, somei need to be replaced, in fact socks are on my Christmas list
30. lots of different kinds. Favorites are by lisa B socks- cashmere.
I have about 50+ pair and 2 pair on the knitting needles. I wear a uniform and the socks are the only way to show personality and are very seasonal
Probably close to 50. Cotton for summer, wool for winter, compression socks, some thin, some thick.
Enjoyed your blog today! Lovely socks. What would I want if I could have everything? Peace thru Jesus Christ to everyone in the world. Have a Blessed Christmas, Lisa!
I have about 25 or more pairs. Most of them are basic black or white but I do love my seasonal ones and ones with the fun designs. I am definitely a sock wearer. Love these socks. Merry Christmas!
Just have to have them for a sewing buddy of mine!
I have one large drawer stuffed and soley dedicated to about….
75 pairs of socks!
I have at least 100 – all kinds – my favorites are the funky ones or the holiday ones. Everyone needs 20 pair of Christmas socks, right. This is the only month you can wear a different pair every day !!!
Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year !!! 🙂
I would quests 70 pairs and don’t wear many of them since I live in Texas. Silly right?
Living in the cold of Michigan I am forced to wear socks for most of the year. My best day is the day I break out the sandels in the spring–my worst day the day the boots come out the fall. I try to make it better by having fun socks. Many seasonal ones. These would be a fun addition.
I own at least 60 pairs of socks. Seven are for Christmas…..They are the colorful ones!
I have about 20 pairs of socks. Some for work and some for holidays! And always those fuzzy soft Sox are my favorite!
I own 12 pair of all black cotton socks so I don’t have to spend time matching.
My best winter ones are from Duluth Trading Co the plain black Smartwool socks. I think I have 7 prs of those but Santa is bringing 3 more pairs. My sockies! Am going to order 2 sets of your fancy fun socks one set for me, one set for quilter daughter. I have to!
I recognize two people in your photos!!! I wish I was in those photos!
I have about 25 pair of socks.
I have 42 pair of socks in my sock drawer, don’t know how many in the laundry basket right now! These quilting socks are super cute!
Socks, socks and more socks – I would guess I probably have over 75 pairs of socks! I really need to clean out my sock drawer! The quilting socks are super cute!
A drawer stuffed full but only wear maybe 5 pairs!
Cute socks! But we love anything Moda don’t we???? 😁 I have about 25 pairs of socks.
Lots of socks for me. 7 hand knit pairs and 26 others, all different colors and patterns. Wait, almost for got the ones that are on the knitting needles. The quilting ones are super cute!
I have about 25 pairs, none with quilting on them. They are super cute!
Cute socks! Quilters love quilting motif socks!
I recently purged that drawer so I know I only have 12 lovely matching pairs all folded and happy. I would love to add one more!
I’m down to 12 pairs of socks. I desperately need some of these socks!
I’m sure I have at least 40 pairs of socks. I recently started wearing them most of the time. Why did I wait so long to change my shoe sstyle so I can live in socks?
I probably have 25 pair of socks! These socks are really cute!
I can’t even guess. A large drawer full. Love socks!
My Husband tells me that I have “Sock Issues “. I own a lot but they each have a purpose and a reason. I don’wt own any sewing socks at the moment. I should probably get some 🙂
Darling socks! I have at least 30 paid of socks. None of the are about sewing!
Thanks for the chance to win.
About 15! I need more!! Merry Christmas!!
I have a bunch of socks some pairs and some orphans. Sometimes I mix and match! The Moda socks are adorable.
I keep my socks in a pull out tote under the bed, but also have a small basket of socks I wear weekly. When getting ready to move I realized I had enough socks for a centipede and that is a lot of socks. Donated enough to keep feet warm to those on need
I have about 25 pair.
I would say about 25 socks but really don’t know the number.
I have two pair….just bought them from Amazon. That sounds pitiful, doesn’t it?! i don’t really like socks…either don’t wear any or wear knee-highs. 🙂 So, if i won, I’d put them under the tree for my daughter.
I would estimate that I have around 60 pairs of socks. I know….a lot!
I probably have about 30 pair socks, but no quilting ones!! These are super cute!
These are adorable socks. Petal to the metal, love it
I am a sock hoarder, I have about 48 pair, and not one with a hole in it 😉
I don’t have any hat many socks-how many can one person wear anyway. I have about 8 pair. Thanks
I only have 2 pair for myself. BUT I love to give socks!
63.. I always wear socks. My feet hate to be barefoot. I will be buried in socks!
Since I live in sandals and wear them from the first signs of spring right up until I’m sure the snow is here to stay in the fall I only have a half a dozen pairs of socks. These Moda socks are pretty snazzy!
Love the quilting socks!!! I have at least 30 pair of Christmas socks, I wear them all year long. Except the week of Halloween, and I have about 9 pair of spooky socks. Plus the regular and extra fluffy/ I’d guess 60 pairs! So I definitely need more.😎
I probably have 50 pair of socks, have always been a fan. And the best thing about winter is wool socks!
I love all socks one of my favorite things. Nothing is more cozy than a thick pair of socks in the winter. About 50 pairs.
Merry Christmas!! I only have around a dozen pairs of socks.
I definitely need these – to add to my collection of at least 100 pairs of socks. I love fun socks!
I am not a sock hound. That said my socks are either black, navy , brown or white. I have 24 pairs of socks. These would be really fun.
Wish I were as organized and cleaned my sock drawer more often….137 pairs of socks and that’s not counting the basket of lost friends in my laundry room…time to clean out….socks for fun, for comfort, for walking, for dress shoes, for gym shoes, for warmth, for hiking, for winter, for summer……yikes!
I am embarrassed to say this, but I may have @100 pairs of socks! Between the summer ones, thermal ones , and utility socks I wear to work, (I sand and refinish hardwood floors for a living, and ruin socks constantly with stain and polyurethane!) I’m close to it, and when you add in the handlnit ones I’m addicted to making… suffice to say I’m close to 100. But I NEED these! Would look great with my see through Chuck Taylor’s don’t you think?!
I love socks, especially the cute ones like this! I think I have about 60 pairs of socks crammed in my sock drawer. I always buy my daughters socks for Christmas. I forgot one year and they kept asking where their socks were.
My daughters thought all my socks were atrocious so last year for Christmas they both gave me socks. Together they gave me 42 pair. Plus I couldn’t get rid of all my old ones so if you add those in plus all my outdoor boot socks I probably have closer to 75-80. That doesn’t count the knee high nylons I had left over from my working days which is probably another 50 pair.
These socks are awesome!! I have about 60 pairs of socks.
I I think I have about 2 dozen pairs of socks but NO quilting socks.
I have about 50 pairs of socks……these socks are really cute! Would make a nice addition to my drawer.
Oh my. Probably a few dozen. Guess I could go count . . . but my computer would probably time out! LOL
My feet are always cold plus I have socks for every occasion so I am saying maybe 30 pairs, lol, is proabably more!
I know I can go 3 weeks without washing a load of socks for me. I guess I’d have to say I have about 25 pairs of hand-knitted socks in my drawer. The store-bought ones I don’t really count …. they are only for walking the dog and doing yard work! Would love to win these Moda socks. For sure my retreat friends would be JEALOUS!!
Oh my gosh. I am a sock freak. I must have 40/50 pairs of very cool socks not including the ugly white ones I wear to the gym.
Guesstimate! At least 2 dozen probably more. Holidays and everyday, but never a quilting motif !!
I have two drawers of socks some are light weight for Spring and then there are the heavy wool socks I am putting to good use now!
Well i was going to count my socks just for the heck of it but I have a dresser drawer full. I did count my wool socks and I do have 13 pairs just with those. I would guesstamate possibly 40 pairs!?! Bunches of short socks for summer, regular ones for jeans, novelty ones……
I probably have at least 50 pair, but none as cute as these!
Socks – how many??? – there’s summer socks, regular socks, christmas socks. – probably at least 40 pairs.
I have lots of socks; and still collect cute ones. I don’t have any quilting ones yet!
24 Pair of SMARTWOOL socks. I’m in MN, it’s the only sock to own here!!
I even make socks….for me and others! My husband gets holes in his and I have stopped trying to mend them…now he gets thick yarn and fat socks! I have lots of socks! Ho Ho Ho!
Socks??? Are we counting only one color..brown, blue, black, multi…do I include trouser socks…you get the idea…too many to count!
I have a lot of socks… a drawer and a bin full. Love fun socks like these. Fun start to counting down to Chrtistmas.
I have at least 75 single ones in my drawer😂but probably 16 pair that match up. !! The 75 single I don’t know guess I need to throw them out. Maybe after the first of the year when I get caught up on things which never happens in my world. Oh well when I don’t have a pair I pick 2 that look close😂Merry Christmas!
Oh, these socks are really cute! If I had to guess I’d say between 12-15 pairs of socks. Some made to be mismatched which are so fun and one pair of leg warmers from ages ago. This Cali girl only needs socks in the dead of winter.
Too many to count! Oh but I love these socks…I don’t have any that are this fun!
I only have 5 pairs of sewing socks but a lot of mismatched ones.
love the photos with everyone holding their candy canes!
I really don’t know how many socks I have. I started collecting socks with every quilt trip that started with a trip to the Chicago quilt show several years ago. I forgot my socks and hunted for 2 days to find a pair of socks at the show. So now it is tradition to get socks whenever I go on a Quilt or any trip. My last quilt trip I got socks in Iceland.
I have six pairs of socks.
Wow! So many socks! I have seven pairs. One for each day of the week. That way I HAVE to do laundry. A pair of the quilting socks will go to the woman who inspired me to quilt. Thank you.
I guess I have about 20 pairs of socks- but no sewing socks!
At least 30 pairs of socks, summer and winter!
I have about 60 pairs of socks — because there are winter socks, summer socks, in between socks and special over the other sock, socks! High socks, low socks, socks you can’t see when wearing them, and then of course there are black ones, white ones, and colored ones — I have a lot of socks!
Such cute socks. Would love to win a pair. I’m guessing my tally for socks would be around 75 pairs. Please don’t make me go look. LOL
I have a whole drawer full of socks, I would estimate about 50 pair. Love this socks, I would definitely make room in my sock drawer for them. Merry Christmas to all..
I want to win a pair of socks…an estimate on how many pairs of socks I own…way too many. I have thin below ankle socks, regular ankle socks, trouser socks, thin boot socks, thick boot socks….you get the idea. With 4 full seasons of weather here in the NE and outdoor activities from walking to snow shoeing one needs to be prepared. Believe me I try to be prepared. 🙂
Oh dear, at least 30. Plus I just cleaned out my sock drawer and all the ones in good shape (another 30) I’m taking to the shelter. I’ve finally had to ask my family to not give me any more socks – no matter how much I like them!
Well, I am thinking that I must have over 40 pairs. And, yes, I probably only wear about 7 or 8 pairs–but– you never know when I might need those other 30+ pairs!
I’m out town so I can’t count them but probably 30 pairs – half of which I don’t wear. I think I will get rid of them when I get home a buy cute ones like these.
I would estimate around 20 pairs of socks , some that probably should be tossed and wouldn’t it be great to put these cuties in their place
Too fun! Those are the best socks! Hope Nick is doing well! See you at Road in January!
I have 5 pairs, I live in Florida so don’t need many. Cold today so I’m wearing socks with sandals!
Such cute socks, I live in “cold in the winter Pennsylvania” so I have probably 20 pair of socks.
I probably own about 30 pairs of socks!
I have a fair amount of socks, 30-35 pairs I’m guessing and that’s not counting a bunch of unopened socks I bought on sale! Even though I live in Florida I always run towards cold feet!
I just counted my whole sock drawer and there are 80 pair overflowing in there and tha’s not counting what may be in the laundry basket! I am shocked!!! But I still will buy these!
interesting question. I don’t think I have ever thought of this. Maybe 25 pairs of socks.
I love your blog! 3 dozen socks is my guess. Next, I decided to count them. After throwing out the holey ones, I had 38! I gave my daughter ones that I never wear and now I have 30.
It’s embarrassing but I have at least 50 pairs. Cute yellow ones that look like a measuring tape.
I own probably 25 pairs of socks – newest ones gifted to me by my son from Yellowstone – with Grizzlys and Moose!
For Christmas I would like a new PRESIDENT of the USA so we can start the year not being embarrassed every time he opens his mouth. Sorry, not intended to be a political statement; just want to be proud again of who we are as a nation….
Ok thought this was the “What do you wish for Christmas?” question….so socks….probably have 50 pair,
I have 28 pairs plus these 2 if I win makes an even 30 – they are VERY cute!
I have more than 35 pairs. I have to use two drawers! I love fun socks. These are great!
What a question! I can only guess – maybe 150! Holiday socks, warm wool socks, “dress” pants socks, tennis shoe socks, and old, old socks for mowing lawn. Living in Iowa we need to be prepared for everything.
Between everyday socks, work socks, novelty socks, athletic socks, I probably have 100 pair. Oh my…
Love these socks! I could wear them to my upcoming retreat in February!! Don’t know how many socks I have, but it may be time to purge since I am going to start to knit socks in the New Year!!
I own about 50 pair of socks, some favorites really show their wear and others (weird colors) look brand new.
I have over 100 pair of socks. I love all the seasons and have socks for them all. Also a lot of dog socks.
About 20-25 pairs of socks. Love theses socks!
Maybe only a dozen, as I live in Florida and most of the time wear sandals.
I have way more socks than I can count. Haha
I go to the gym five days a week so … having 12 pairs of white socks gets me through a week! I almost never wear them, except the gym, so in the summer I only have to do laundry every two weeks… well, socks, anyway!
