Socktober 2022

Socktober 2022

Join us for our second annual Sock Drive!
October is just around the corner - you know what that's Socktober at STASH! Our 2021 sock drive was such a huge success that we're doing it all over again. Last year with your help we collected and distributed 1380 pairs of socks to local organizations and mutual aid groups in Calgary. 

How it works: 
  • From October 1 to 31, drop off (or mail) your donation of NEW socks (all sizes/ages/genders!) at STASH. 
  • For every pair you donate, we'll enter you in the draw to win our 2022 Yarn Calendar - delivered to your door right in time for December 1! 
  • Multiple packs of socks = multiple donations. Grab a pack from Costco, or two, or three! 
Handknit socks are lovely, but for this, we encourage you to buy new. The more socks we can get, the more people will have clean, dry socks this winter. 

Out of town? You can still participate! We'll accept donations by mail this year if you want to join in. (Shipping costs are your responsibility!)  Please include your name, phone number, email address, and instagram handle (if applicable). Winner must be from Canada or the United States for shipping purposes. 

Drop off, or mail your sock donations to:
STASH Lounge
ATTN: Nicole
1237 9th Ave SE
Calgary, AB T2G 0S9

New for 2022: SOCKTOBER FEST

When: Wednesday, October 5 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Where: Cabin Brewing, 505 36 Ave SE, Calgary Alberta 
What: Join us for a casual sock making meet up at Cabin Brewing! Bring your WIP (non sock wips welcome) and come craft with us. Need help? We'll have some sock making experts on site!  
Cost: $15. Includes a bevvy of your choosing (alcoholic or non!) Any additional revenue will go towards purchasing more socks to distribute. BONUS: Every pair of socks you donate at the event will give you TWO entries to the draw, instead of one.

Purchase tickets here!


Wondering where the socks go? 

We contact local charitable organizations, shelters, and mutual aid groups in Calgary and distribute them to as many as possible. Last year we were able to provide hundreds of socks to five different organizations. If your organization or group is in need of socks this winter, please don't hesitate to email nicole at
